Seattle Storm 81, Minnesota 79: Box Score

Stewart made a floater in the lane to break a 79-all tie. After Minnesota came up empty at the other end on Moriah Jefferson’s off-balance layup attempt, Stewart dribbled down the clock and got it to Jewell Loyd, who missed a contested shot in the lane. But Stewart grabbed the offensive rebound and passed it out to run out the clock.

Epiphanny Prince made four 3-pointers in the opening five minutes of the fourth quarter and finished with 15 points for Seattle (9-5).

Loyd added 13 points, including a three-point play for a 57-54 lead after Seattle started the third quarter on an 18-8 run. Sue Bird did not play due to a non-COVID illness.

Stewart scored 15 points in the first half but Seattle still trailed 46-39. The Storm finished 12 of 27 from 3-point range.

Kayla McBride scored 20 points for Minnesota (3-12), including a 3-pointer to tie it at 79 with 52 seconds left. Jessica Shepard added 12 points, Nikolina Milic added 11 points and Aerial Powers had 10 points and seven assists.

Minnesota, which has lost four straight, outshot Seattle 51.5% to 38.4 but turned it over 15 times.
