BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — Breanna Stewart had 21 points, nine rebounds, five assists and four steals and the Seattle Storm never trailed in their 81-75 win over the Los Angeles Sparks on Saturday night.

Jewell Loyd added 17 points, Jordin Canada — starting in place of Sue Bird (rest) — scored a season-high 16 and rookie Ezi Magbegor had a career-high 12 points for Seattle.

The Storm (3-1) bounced back from an 89-71 loss to the Washington Mystics on Thursday.

Candace Parker had 19 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Sparks (2-2). Riquna Williams hit 4 of 7 from 3-point range and finished with 16 points and Nneka Ogwumike scored 14.

Canada’s short jumper midway through the fourth quarter ended the Storm’s streak of nearly eight minutes without a field goal and Loyd followed with a 3-pointer to make it 73-65 with 4:19 to go. Parker and Ogwumike made baskets 13 seconds apart to make it a four-point game with two minutes remaining but neither team scored again until Canada made two free throws with 35.5 seconds to play that made it 79-73. Chelsea Gray made a putback of a missed 3-pointer by Brittney Sykes but Magbegor answered with a layup less than two seconds later to cap the scoring.

Seattle scored the first nine points and led 14-1 after Canada made a layup fewer than four minutes into the game and took a 16-point lead into halftime. Williams hit three third-quarter 3-pointers and the Sparks trimmed their deficit to 65-55 going into the fourth and after Stewart made 1-of-2 free throws, Seimone Augustus, who finished with 12 points, hit a jumper and then back-to-back 3s to pull Los Angeles within three with 6:48 to play.

Flyers beat Lightning, clinch top seed in Eastern Conference

TORONTO (AP) — Rookie Nicolas Aube-Kubel scored twice, and the Philadelphia Flyers defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-1 on Saturday night to clinch the Eastern Conference’s top seed through the playoffs.

The Lightning not only dropped the game in completing preliminary round-robin play with a 2-1 record, Tampa Bay’s star defenseman Victor Hedman did not return after appearing to twist his right ankle while going down untouched midway through the first period. The Lightning did not provide any details on the 2017 Norris Trophy winner’s status except to announce he would miss the remainder of the game.

Joel Farabee had a goal and assist, Tyler Pitlick scored into an empty net with 1:20 left, and Carter Hart stopped 23 shots for the Flyers, who finished 3-0. Philadelphia didn’t allow more than one goal in also defeating Boston and Washington, and out-scored its opponents by a combined 11-3.

The Flyers move on to the first round next week and face the 12th-seeded Montreal Canadiens.

Tyler Johnson scored for the Lightning, and Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 26 shots.

Tampa Bay will enter the first round of the playoffs as the East’s second seed.
