Epiphanny Prince scored 12 of her 16 points in the fourth quarter as the Chicago Sky rallied from a double-digit deficit in the second half to beat the Seattle Storm, 79-66, on Thursday night at KeyArena.
Swin Cash scored 18 points against her former team, Sylvia Fowles had 16 points and 10 rebounds, and Allie Quigley finished with a career high-tying 14 points for the Sky (16-8). Chicago used a 17-0 run in the fourth quarter to avoid the two-game season sweep by Seattle.
The Sky was without leading scorer and rookie Elena Delle Donne because of a foot injury.
Tanisha Wright scored 20 points to lead Seattle (10-13).
Prince scored seven points during the 17-0 run in which the Sky pulled ahead, 66-62. Chicago outscored Seattle 32-6 in the fourth quarter and 30-4 over the final 81/2 minutes.
Seattle used strong shooting and a 12-1 third-quarter run to take a 56-40 lead before the Sky got going. The Storm was shooting 25-for-46 through the third quarter but went just 3-for-12 in the fourth.
Delle Donne wore a boot on her left foot while watching from the bench in street clothes. She suffered the injury in the first half Tuesday at Los Angeles.
Without her, Chicago got off to a slow start while Seattle jumped out to a 39-29 halftime lead. The Storm made 14 of its first 25 shots, while the Sky struggled from the field and missed all five of its 3-point attempts.
After halftime, the Storm made eight of its first nine field goals and three 3-pointers over the first 7 minutes to open up a 58-43 lead.
But Chicago’s 12-for-15 shooting from the field, including 2-for-2 accuracy from 3-point range, in the fourth quarter extended its winning streak to three.
