Storm win fourth straight and send Lynx to 0-4


The Minnesota Lynx haven’t found any answers yet this season.

They picked up their fourth straight loss Friday night as the Seattle Storm cruised to a comfortable 82-72 win at home.

The game was the Lynx’s first with Napheesa Collier back on the court. The forward had to sit out of Minnesota’s first three games due to COVID-19 protocols after she returned from her overseas season in France. Collier contributed 14 points and six assists and Sylvia Fowles continued her strong start to the season with 15 points and six rebounds, but their production wasn’t enough to outlast Seattle.

Breanna Stewart led the way for the Storm with 15 points and eight rebounds. Jewell Loyd added 12 points and five assists.

Despite a scoring drought in the last eight minutes of the game, the Storm stamped a comfortable ten-point victory over the Lynx to improve to 5-1.

Minnesota, at 0-4, is the WNBA’s only winless team remaining. It doesn’t get much easier from here as the Lynx face the 6-1 Sun on Sunday. The Storm next host the Fever in Seattle on Tuesday.
