Strong fourth quarter pushes Storm past Dream

Tanisha Wright scored 21 points, Camille Little posted a double-double and the Seattle Storm surged past the Atlanta Dream in the fourth quarter in taking a 73-65 victory.

Little tallied 19 points and 10 boards, while Shekinna Stricklen scored 10 and provided the spark to a final frame that saw the Storm outscore the Dream by a 26-15 count.

Seattle shot 52 percent from the field for the game to end a two-game slide.

Erika de Souza poured in 16 points and pulled down 14 boards, and Alex Bentley also scored 16 for the Dream, who have lost two straight since a six-game winning streak.

The Dream held a slim 50-47 edge after three quarters, but the Storm rifled off an 18-4 run to start the fourth and grab control of an 11-point advantage.

Stricklen scored seven during the surge and Little contributed a 3-pointer and a layup before Wright's runner made it 65-54 with 3:34 remaining.

The Dream missed seven shots in a row during the game-clinching run and only came as close as six points down the stretch.
