Seattle hands Connecticut first home loss of the season


The Storm charged past the Sun on Sunday afternoon, defeating Connecticut 89-66.

Breanna Stewart led Seattle in points with 22, shooting 53.3 percent from the field and draining a season-high four shots from beyond the arc. Stewart also contributed nine rebounds, five assists and three steals, helping the Storm get out in front early.

Sue Bird had a historic night as well, surpassing Katie Smith for the second-most made threes in WNBA history at 907. Bird added 13 points and four assists to Seattleโ€™s dominant performance.

Sundayโ€™s matchup was billed as a clash of the Eastern and Western Conference leaders, but without Jonquel Jones, the Sun struggled to keep the game close. Jones is currently overseas on EuroBasket duties with Bosnia. DeWanna Bonner and Kaila Charles each put up 14 points for Connecticut, but without substantial scoring off the bench, the Sun fell behind.

Seattle will look to stay undefeated on the road when they face off against the Fever on Tuesday. Connecticut will head to Chicago to take on the Sky on Thursday.
