SEATTLE – Tina Charles broke a tie on a put-back with 23 seconds left in the New York Liberty’s 84-80 overtime time victory over the Seattle Storm on Thursday night.

Cappie Pondexter scored 20 points, and Charles added 18 points and 14 rebounds to help New York win its third straight game.

After Charles gave New York the lead, Pondexter added a basket just before the buzzer after Seattle missed two shots in the final 13 seconds.

Camille Little scored 22 points, and Crystal Langhorne added 17 for Seattle. The Storm have lost four in a row and five of six.

Seattle guard Temeka Johnson had a triple-double with 13 points, 11 assists and a career-high 10 rebounds. She started in place of Sue Bird, sidelined by a strained neck.
