Napheesa Collier recorded a double-double with 19 points and 14 rebounds for Minnesota (8-3), which beat Seattle for the third time in as many games this season. Bridget Carleton chipped in 13 points.

Jewell Loyd scored 25 points to lead Seattle (7-4). Nneka Ogwumike scored 14 points for the Storm, whose six-game winning streak ended.

Seattle cut the deficit to 65-60 on a jump shot by Skylar Diggins-Smith with 5:38 left. That was as close as the Storm got in the final quarter.

The Lynx opened a double-digit advantage in the final minutes of the fourth quarter. Carleton made a 3-pointer to give Minnesota a 73-62 lead with 3:57 remaining.

Alanna Smith followed with a pair of free throws to make it 75-62, and McBride made a 3-pointer to increase the Lynx’s lead to 16 points with 2:14 to play to seal the outcome.

Minnesota outscored Seattle 23-11 in the third quarter to seize the lead.

The Lynx trailed by five points to start the quarter and ended it with a 59-52 edge. Collier started the second-half scoring with a layup off an assist from Smith.

The score was even at 49-49 with 4:34 remaining in the third quarter. Minnesota then went on an 8-0 run that included a 3-pointer by Collier and five points from McBride.

Seattle led 41-36 at the half.

Loyd led all scorers with 16 points before the break. She made a pull-up jump shot to put the Storm on top by 10 with 1:20 to go.

The Lynx scored the final five points of the first half thanks to a 3-pointer by Collier and a pair of free throws by Courtney Williams.
