After having their best offensive game in nearly three years, the San Antonio Stars look to avenge their latest defeat on Friday evening when they face the Seattle Storm (5-8).
San Antonio (5-6) is coming off a 101-74 victory over the Los Angeles Sparks after losing to Seattle the night before. Head coach Dan Hughes credited the impressive offensive display to ball movement as his team shot 54.8 percent and went 9 of 15 from 3-point range, its best shooting night of the season. Something, the San Antonio Spurs know something about as they’ve just won their fifth NBA championship.
“When we reviewed the tape upteen times last night, we were spotty (on ball movement),” Hughes said. “We had ball movement and other parts we didn’t. If we are going to be a good basketball team, we’ve got to have it the entire game. We had it the entire game and you see the effect of that.”
Danielle Robinson scored a season-high 24 points while Kayla McBride added 20 points. San Antonio will now shift their focus to the defensive end, where the Stars allow their oppoents to shoot a league-high 49.6 percent. Seattle has shot 54.8 percent in its last two games.
Tanisha Wright had a season-high 24 points and has averaged 16.4 in her last five games.
