SEATTLE (AP) — Allisha Gray had 18 points, Satou Sabally added 11 points, 11 rebounds and six assists and the Dallas Wings beat the Seattle Storm 68-51 on Friday night.

Arike Ogunbowale added 16 points, including eight in the final five minutes to seal the win for Dallas (6-4).

Sabally hit a 3-pointer to give the Wings a 31-27 lead at halftime, and Dallas scored 15 of the first 21 second-half points to stretch its lead to 13. Ogunbowale hit a 3-pointer from the logo just before the shot clock expired midway through the third quarter and she made another deep 3 that made it 52-39.

Seattle (5-4) had its four-game win streak snapped.

Breanna Stewart had 27 points, eight rebounds and three steals for the Storm, and Jewell Loyd scored 13 points. The rest of the team combined to score just 11 of the team’s 51 points — the franchise’s fewest since scoring 45 in a 23-point loss to the Tulsa Shock (now the Dallas Wings) on June 6, 2015 — and made just 5 of 25 from the field.

Seattle starters Sue Bird and Ezi Magbegor (health and safety protocols) each missed their third consecutive game.
