SEATTLE – After an overtime loss in their last game, Sue Bird and Camille Little were determined to get the Seattle Storm back on the winning track.
Bird hit the tying 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter and Little scored nine of her 22 points in overtime to lead the Seattle Storm in an 89-86 victory over the Washington Mystics on Sunday night.
The Storm (6-9) snapped a two-game skid, including an 87-82 loss in OT to San Antonio on Thursday.
“San Antonio is a game we should have gotten,” said Little, who shot 3 for 4 in the extra period after going 0 for 7 in the third and fourth quarters. “We just had to refocus and make sure we pulled out the game tonight and just work on the things we can do.”
“Every basketball player can get caught up with what happened in the past,” Bird said. “Camille, all things considered, did a lot of big things in overtime.”
Shekinna Stricklen added 12 points and Crystal Langhorne had 11 against her former team.
Bird finished with 21 points, including the tying 3-pointer with 1:18 left in the fourth quarter.
