Seattle wins 4th straight to extend Lynx’s losing streak


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Breanna Stewart had 29 points, including a go-ahead basket with 42.6 seconds left, and the Seattle Storm beat the Minnesota Lynx 81-79 for their fourth straight victory.

Stewart made a floater in the lane to break a tie at 79. 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.

Kayla McBride scored 20 points for Minnesota.
