UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — Breanna Stewart made 4 of 5 from 3-point range and scored 22 points to help the Seattle Storm beat the Connecticut Sun 89-66.

The Storm improved their lead atop the WNBA standings over the second-place Sun to 1 1/2 games. 

Sue Bird added 13 points and moved up in a couple of the lists of all-time leaders.  Bird tied Katie Smith for most 3-pointers made in a career.  The all-time assist leader also moved into 8th place for field goals made in a career, surpassing Lisa Leslie.

Connecticut was without Jonquel Jones, who left for Europe to represent Bosnia and Herzegovina at EuroBasket.

DeWanna Bonner and Kaila Charles had 14 points each for the Sun.
