BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — Jewell Loyd and Breanna Stewart scored 23 points apiece and the Seattle Storm used an 11-0 run to pull away for good in their 107-95 win over the Dallas Wings.
Seattle (17-3) has won six games in a row and leads Las Vegas by 1 1/2 games for the No. 1 seed in the playoffs, which begin Sept. 15.
Satou Sabally led Dallas (7-13) with 25 points.
Sabally collided with Sue Bird in the fourth quarter. Bird hobbled off with a sore left knee. It's the same knee that caused her to miss games this season with a bruised knee.
After the game, coach Gary Kloppenburg says Bird is walking around on it, but they will have to get it checked out.
Dallas leads Washington by a half-game and Atlanta by a game for the eighth and final playoff spot.
The win clinches a double-bye for the Storm. They will advance to the semifinals.
