SEATTLE (AP) — Shenise Johnson had 16 points and the Indiana Fever outscored the Seattle Storm 30-9 in the third quarter to roll to a 75-63 victory Friday night, their franchise-record fourth straight win on the road.
Tamika Catchings and Lynetta Kizer added 14 points each for the Fever (16-9). They have won five straight overall and eight of nine.
Jewell Loyd had 15 points for the Storm (7-20). It was the last game for Seattle forward Ramu Tokashiki, who is joining the Japan national team in its bid to qualify for the Olympics.
Seattle shot 68 percent in taking a 43-37 lead at the half, but made just 3 of 15 shots in the third quarter. Catchings had four points and Johnson drilled a 3-pointer in a 9-0 run midway through the quarter that put the Fever up for good at 53-45.
Indiana led 15 after three quarters and Seattle never threatened.
