Connecticut Sun edged the Seattle Storm, 60-58, on Sunday.
Tina Charles added 12 points, while Mistie Mims contributed a double-double
with 11 points and 11 rebounds for the Eastern Conference-leading Sun, who
have won three of their last four.
Shekinna Stricklen led Seattle with 12 points, but missed two shots in the
final 2.7 seconds.
There were six lead changes in the fourth quarter, the last coming when
Montgomery went 2-for-2 from the foul line with 14.4 seconds left to give the
Sun a 59-58 edge.
Stricklen missed from 10 feet at the other end, and Mims made 1-of-2 free
throws to keep it a one-possession game. Stricklen, though, was off the mark
on a long three to seal Seattle's fourth straight loss.
