Tanisha Wright scored 11 of her 17 points in the third quarter to lead the Seattle Storm to a 73-55 win over the visiting San Antonio Silver Stars on Thursday night.

Swin Cash added 15 points, and Camille Little had 10 for the Storm (8-7), who snapped a three-game losing streak — their longest skid since late in the 2009 season.

Sophia Young led the Silver Stars (9-5) with 12 points. San Antonio missed a chance to record what would have been the best start in franchise history had it won on Thursday night. Becky Hammon chipped in 11 points, and Jia Perkins had 10.

The Storm, whose losing streak started with a 69-66 defeat at San Antonio last Thursday, effectively put the game away at the outset of the third quarter.
