Iziane Castro Marques scored 19 points and Lauren Jackson had 18 points and 13 rebounds to lead the visiting Seattle Storm to an 82-47 rout of the Los Angeles Sparks on Tuesday.

The 47 points were a record low for Los Angeles, which also went down to a franchise-record sixth consecutive defeat. The Sparks shot a season-worst 29.9 percent.

Betty Lennox added 12 points and Janell Burse had 11 for the Storm, who have won four of the last five and are 6-2 in their last eight games.

Seattle made 10 of 17 shots in the first quarter while the Sparks missed 10 of 15 and had eight turnovers that the Storm used to score 11 points. Seattle scored 26 points on 21 turnovers.

Mystics 91, Lynx 83 (OT): At Washington, Nakia Sanford had 25 points and 10 rebounds and the Mystics pulled away in overtime for a win over Minnesota.

Shock 92, Sky 84: At Auburn Hills, Mich., Swin Cash scored 20 points and Detroit beat Chicago.

Deanna Nolan had 18 points for Detroit, which had five players in double figures, and two – Cheryl Ford and Plenette Pierson – with double-doubles.

Fever 79, Comets 77: At Houston, Tamika Catchings scored 23 points to lead Indiana over the Comets.

The Fever held Houston to 10 fourth-quarter points as the Comets made only 4 of 16 field goals in the final period. It was Indiana’s first win in Houston.
