Lynx can't weather the Storm, fall to Seattle

Author:

A big performance by the Storm's Camille Little pushed Seattle past the Minnesota Lynx 81-71 Friday night.

Little
dropped a career high 31 points while shooting 11-for-15 from the floor. She also pulled down six rebounds.

"I didn't even know I had that many points," said the 29-year-old forward who'd been averaging 13.3 points per game this season, according to the Associated Press. "I want us to win. We've been having some rough nights."

Seattle is 7-10 overall on the season, but 4-2 at home.

The Lynx (11-5) are in their own midseason swoon. After a blistering 7-0 start, the team has won just four of its past nine games.

Maya Moore
led the way for Minnesota Friday, with a 20-point 10-rebound performance. Damiris Dantas and Lindsay Whalen added 11 points apiece in the loss.

But as a team, the Lynx shot just 39.7 percent from the field, hitting just three of their 10 3-point attempts and going 14-for-21 from the free throw line.

The Storm hit their shots (47.5 percent shooting), and sank 10 3-pointers in the victory – half of which came from guard Jenna O-Hea, who provided a 15-point spark off the bench for Seattle. They were also nearly flawless from the charity stripe (15-for-16).

Minnesota will get a quick opportunity for revenge. The two teams play again Sunday night at the Target Center. Game time is 6 p.m.
