The Seattle Storm were “in a silly goofy mood” Friday night, according to Gabby Williams. The team looked loose in their 73-57 win Friday over the Indiana Fever.
One play in particular caught fans’ attention, as Breanna Stewart, Jewell Loyd and Williams deployed a fast break that resembled volleyball more than basketball — or perhaps a play from the Harlem Globetrotters.
“That was for Sue,” Stewart tweeted in response to the delightful play.

Bird replied to Stewart with a melting smiley face emoji, perhaps a sarcastic stamp of approval from the star in her final season.
Stewart led all scorers with 20 points, adding six rebounds and three assists, while Williams added 10 points, four rebounds and one assist for the Storm.
Friday’s win improves Seattle to 13-7 on the season ahead of the team’s Sunday matchup against the Atlanta Dream.
