EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — Epiphanny Prince scored 15 points, Katie Lou Samuelson matched her career high with 14, and the Seattle Storm beat the Phoenix Mercury 82-75. Jewell Loyd’s 3-pointer with 1:48 left gave the Storm a six-point lead and Sue Bird’s running bank shot was the dagger, making it 80-72 at 43.9 seconds. Seattle goes into the Olympic break with the best record in the WNBA and will return from it to open a five-game road trip, with a 47-day stretch until their next home game on August 27 when they visit the Chicago Sky. Kia Nurse scored 28 points and had a career high seven 3-pointers for the Mercury.
