CHICAGO (AP) — Cheyenne Parker came off the bench and scored 18 points with 11 rebounds and the Chicago Sky held off the Seattle Storm 78-71 on Sunday night.

Stephanie Dolson added 15 points and Courtney Vandersloot 11 with seven assists for the Sky (2-2), who had their best defensive game of the season after giving up 105 in their last outing.

The defending champion and short-handed Storm (3-3) continued their pattern of following a win with a loss, three of the losses on the road. Natasha Howard and Jewell Loyd had 20 points apiece.

Chicago got off to a strong start, leading 29-16 after one quarter and 43-17 early in the second but Seattle scored 17 straight points and closed with 44-34 at the half.

The Storm were as close as six in the third quarter but a 9-0 run early in the third quarter pushed the lead to 71-55.

Seattle shot 38 percent and was 3 of 18 from distance. Chicago, which had 20 turners, had eight 3-pointers but only had eight points from the foul line while the Storm was 16 of 19.
