Breanna Stewart (6'4''-F-94, college: Connecticut) and Sue Bird (5'9''-PG-80, college: Connecticut) scored 17 points apiece and the Seattle Storm beat the Washington Mystics 81-76 on Friday night in a critical showdown between teams battling for the final playoff spots. The Storm (14-17) won its third straight on the road to move into seventh place, one-half game in front of Phoenix (13-17). The Mystics are 12-18. 'I think our defense and rebounding came through,' Storm coach Jenny Boucek said. 'It is something that was inconsistent throughout the season and since the break, I think it has gotten more consistent, and it has given us a chance to win on the road.' Mystics coach Mike Thibault said: 'That was a terrific playoff-type game. They were better than us at the end. The other team shoots 54 percent and we shoot 38 percent, you're making it tough. I thought we took some off-balance shots. I thought we did a reasonably good job on them defensively in stretches. I think players like Alysha Clark (5'10''-F-87, college: Middle Tenn.St.) stepped up for them and had really terrific games. 'We didn't shoot the ball as well as we needed to win a game like that. We did a lot of right things, but playoff games are decided by little things and we didn't get over the hump.' Ramu Tokashiki (6'3''-F/C-91), who had 13 points, scored Seattle's first seven points of the fourth quarter to close a 16-1 run that put the Storm up 70-61. The Mystics scored the next eight, the first six by Natasha Cloud (6'0''-G-92, college: St.Joseph's), to make it a one-point game. Jewell Loyd's step-back 20-footer with 2:05 left made it 79-76 for the Storm and both teams missed several chances before Loyd's two free throws with less than a second remaining iced it. Stewart had 10 rebounds, and the Storm had a 36-26 advantage on the boards. Bird had nine assists and seven rebounds. Bird was one assist shy of what would have been her 22nd career double-double. Bird shot 6 of 11 from the field, including 3 of 5 from three-point range, and connected on two from the free-throw line. Two other Storm players scored in double figures - Clark with 14 and Loyd with 11 'Having balance on both ends of the floor matters,' Boucek said. 'Teams are too good nowadays to have two or three players carrying the load. Our team in particular. Most teams are committed to taking certain players away so other players get opportunities to make plays and make them pay.' Emma Messeman led Washington, which scored 118 points in a win over Chicago on Wednesday night, with 15 points. 'The fact that we were able to have a lot of people contributing made it so Washington had to guard all five of our players that were on the court,' Storm forward Stewart said.
