SEATTLE (AP) — Crystal Langhorne scored 15 of her 19 points in the second half to help the Seattle Storm snap a seven-game losing streak with a 71-65 win over the San Antonio Stars on Sunday night.

Langhorne scored seven and Sue Bird added five in the final three minutes of the game after the Stars had rallied from an 18-point first-half deficit to take a 59-57 lead. Langhorne also had 10 rebounds.

Camille Little added 15 points and Bird 10 for Seattle (10-20), which moved within 3½ games of the Stars for the fourth and final playoff berth with just four games left.

Kayla McBride scored 17 and Danielle Adams 14 — all in the second half — to lead San Antonio (13-16), which fell a half game behind Los Angeles for third place in the west. The Stars have lost seven of nine but are still three up on Tulsa for the final playoff spot.
