Rebekkah Brunson scored 22 points and Seimone Augustus had 20 for the defending champion Lynx.

Tina Thompson opened the second extra period with a 3 that put the Storm ahead for good, 78-75. After Lindsay Whalen had a jumper for the Lynx, Bird hit a 3 that stretched Seattle's lead to four points with 2:24 left, and she made another with 42 seconds remaining sealed the Storm's win.

FEVER 103, DREAM 88

ATLANTA (AP) - Tamika Catchings had 25 points and 13 rebounds, Briann January scored 24 points and Indiana forced a deciding Game 3 in the East semifinals series.

Erlana Larkins had 16 points, Shavonte Zellous added 15, Tammy Sutton-Brown 11 and Erin Phillips 10 for the Fever, who shot 53 percent from the field. January scored 11 points in the third quarter to help Indiana extend a two-point halftime lead and Catchings had 18 in the fourth - one short of the WNBA record for a quarter.
