SEATTLE (AP) — Breanna Stewart scored 24 points and Crystal Langhorne added 20, making all nine of her shots, to help the Seattle Storm beat the Atlanta Dream 90-84 on Saturday night.
Seattle (9-10) trailed 74-69 midway through the fourth quarter before Stewart and Langhorne scored the next five points to tie it. The Storm took the lead for good at 78-76 on Stewart's reverse layup with 3:09 left. The Dream (8-10) couldn't get a stop down the stretch as the Storm scored on six straight possessions to secure the victory.
Langhorne has made her last 18 shots over the past three games. She's five short of the WNBA record set by Los Angeles' Nneka Ogwumike last season.
Tiffany Hayes scored 19 points, and Brittney Sykes added 16 for the Dream.
Sue Bird had 10 of her 12 points in the first half and Seattle led 45-43 at the break. Her 3-point shot made it 38-25 with 6:36 left in the second quarter before the Dream rallied behind Damiris Dantas to get within two at the half.
