ARLINGTON, Texas — Skylar Diggins-Smith scored 21 points, Jewell Loyd added 19 and the Seattle Storm beat the Dallas Wings 92-84 on Thursday night.

The Storm scored 27 points off 19 Dallas turnovers.

Nneka Ogwumike added 17 points and Ezi Magbegor recorded her fourth double-double of the season with 10 points and 10 rebounds for Seattle. Magbegor also had two blocks to extend her streak of games with two-plus blocks to 13 straight — the seventh longest in WNBA history.
