Storm-Lynx preview

The Seattle Storm have a chance to knock off the top two teams in the WNBA in consecutive games, when they head to Minneapolis to take on the Minnesota Lynx on Sunday at Target Center.

On Friday, Seattle upended the Los Angeles Sparks, owners of the best record in the league, behind a pestering defense and five 3-pointers from star guard Sue Bird. Forward Crystal Langhorne had 16 points and 10 rebounds. The Storm forced 17 Los Angeles turnovers and won despite an off night from rookie forward Breanna Stewart. The leading candidate for rookie of the year, Stewart made only 2 of 13 shots and finished with five points in the 79-72 win over the first-place Sparks.

"It was all about defense for us," guard Jewell Loyd told the Seattle Times after the win over the Sparks. Loyd finished with 15 points.
