SAN ANTONIO — Breanna Stewart scored a season-high 22 points and grabbed eight rebounds, Alysha Clark added 17 points, and the Seattle Storm beat the winless San Antonio Stars 85-76 on Tuesday night.

Seattle had a 21-point lead early in the fourth quarter but San Antonio pulled to 75-69 with 2:49 left after Moriah Jefferson’s back-to-back jumpers. Seattle responded with six straight points — four by Crystal Langhorne — for an 81-69 lead.

Langhorne scored 14 points, and Sue Bird and Jewell Loyd each added 10 for Seattle (5-2), which won its first road game this season.

Seattle had 12 assists on 15 field goals in the first half and shot 53.6 percent to build a 43-33 lead. Loyd went coast-to-coast to end the third for a 66-49 lead as the Storm outscored San Antonio 23-16 in the quarter.
