DALLAS (AP) Skylar Diggins-Smith scored 27 points and Liz Cambage added 25 to help Dallas hold off Seattle 94-90 on Saturday night.
The Wings rebounded from a tough loss to New York to end a three-game road trip by cooling off the Storm, winners of their last five straight.
Cambage built on a 28-point, 16-board outing against the Liberty by grabbing seven boards and hitting 10 of 15 from the free throw line.
The Wings (2-2) held the Storm’s Jewell Loyd to just 16 points, ending her string of scoring 20 or more points at five consecutive games. She was just 5 of 17 from the field, including 1-for-8 from behind the 3-point line.
Loyd’s two free throws with 3:22 left got Seattle within 81-80, after the Storm (5-2) trailed by 17 at the half. Cambage then scored the next seven points, including going 5-for-5 from the foul line to give the Wings a cushion.
Seattle wouldn’t go away though, getting with 92-90 with 2.2 seconds left after Stewart banked in a runner. Diggins-Smith sealed the win with two free throws.
