Brittney Griner added 17 points, seven rebounds and five blocks for Phoenix (19-3), the first team to win 13 straight since the Storm in 2010 and the third longest win streak in league history. The Mercury are five shy of tying the Los Angeles Sparks' record of 18 consecutive set in 2001.

Crystal Langhorne had 22 points and nine rebounds to lead Seattle (9-16), which dropped 2 1/2 games behind Los Angeles for the fourth and final Western Conference playoff berth. The Storm have lost four of their last five and three in a row.
