The Dallas Wings desperately needed a win.
Coming into Thursday’s contest with the Seattle Storm, Dallas had dropped its last five games and was sitting at just 3-7 on the year.

Unfortunately for the Wings, turnovers were the difference as Dallas dropped its sixth straight game in a 92-84 loss to the Storm.

Dallas shot .533% from the field in the first quarter but found themselves trailing 21-19 after the first quarter.


The wackiness of the Wings season continued in the second quarter when Seattle tipped a ball into the backcourt with five seconds left on the shot clock before Arike Ogunbowale chased it down and launched a half-court shot in off the glass.

Arike Ogunbowale’s half-court shot was one of the only moments the Wings had going for them in the half as they trailed 48-40 at the break.

Both teams shot the ball well, with Seattle at 58% and Dallas at 50%. The Storm went on a 7-2 run to end the half and propel them to a halftime lead.

By a 12-4 run to begin the 3rd quarter, Dallas pulled the game within four with 4:56 left in the 3rd but couldn’t find anything consistently to get back in it.

After three frames, the Wings had turned the ball over 17 times, leading Seattle to score 25 points.

With 2:14 left in the game, the Wings had the Seattle lead cut to 88-81 after Arike Ogunbowale sunk a three and rookie Jacy Sheldon knifed through the lane for a nice layup, but that was as close as it would get.


The Wings lost their sixth straight game, 92-84. Dallas turned the ball over 19 times, and Seattle scored 27 points off those turnovers.
