Crystal Langhorne lifts Storm to 71-65 win over Stars

SEATTLE – Crystal Langhore and Sue Bird came through for the Seattle Storm with the type of big plays that had been absent during a seven-game losing streak.

Langhorne scored 15 of her 19 points in the second half to help the Storm beat the San Antonio Stars 71-65 on Sunday night. She scored seven and Bird added five in the final three minutes of the game after the Stars had rallied from an 18-point first half deficit to take a 59-57 lead.

Bird had a key steal and layup to give Seattle a 67-61 lead after Langhorne had delivered two three-point plays and Bird had hit a short jumper.

Camille Little added 15 points and Bird 10 for Seattle (10-20), which moved within 3 1/2 games of the Stars for the fourth and final playoff berth with just four games left.

Seattle took the season series from San Antonio 3-1.
