Shekinna Stricklen scored a career-high 26 points, Tina Thompson added 20 and the Seattle Storm beat the Tulsa Shock 76-67 Thursday night to snap a three-game losing streak.

Tanisha Wright had 15 points, including a key basket in the final minute, for Seattle (16-17), which had lost the teams' previous three meetings this season.

Riquana Williams, who set a WNBA single-game scoring record with 51 points in Tulsa's win at San Antonio on Sunday, had 17 points against the Storm. Roneeka Hodges added 15 points on 5-for-7 shooting on 3-pointers for the Shock (11-22).
