Sue Bird scored 26 points for the Storm (7-7), who dropped their third straight.

Chicago led 69-68 with 3:15 to play following Bird's fourth 3-pointer of the game, but Prince scored four points during a 9-1 run to help the Sky take control.

Ashley Robinson had 14 points and Swin Cash added 10 for Seattle.

Robinson, making her first start, and Cash had eight first-half points apiece as the Storm struggled through 11-of-35 shooting (31.4 percent). The Sky weren't much better, going 11 of 30 (36.7 percent).

Bird's four-point play with 1.6 seconds remaining in the second quarter gave Seattle a 33-30 halftime lead. She hit a 3-pointer, was fouled by Prince and made the free throw.

Chicago scored nine unanswered third-quarter points to open a 39-36 advantage, the first of two six-point leads in the quarter.

Seattle reclaimed the lead with eight straight points late, including consecutive 3-pointers from Bird and Smith, before Prince's buzzer-beating 3-pointer cut the Storm's lead to 55-54 entering the fourth.

Prince's steal with 45 seconds to play helped seal the win. She fed to Fowles, who had a layup, drew a foul and hit a free throw for a seven-point lead.
