The defending WNBA Champion Seattle Storm (12-2) remains the team to beat with its undefeated road record intact at 7-0.

Thursday evening the Storm defeated the Indiana Fever (1-12) for the second consecutive game, led by Breanna Stewart's 21 points and a season-high 15 rebounds.

It's her seventh double-double of the season.

Katie Lou Samuelson, Sue Bird, and Jewell Loyd all joined Stewart in double figures with 10, 13 and 15 points respectively.

The Fever cut the deficit to just three points, 69-66 with 6:31 left but them Stewart scored six points, leading Seattle on a 10-1 run to put the game away. The Storm trailed for much of the first half before turning a 5-point defict into a 4-point lead thanks to a 14-5 run to close the half. 

Seattle suffocated the Fever from the three-point line forcing Indiana to shoot just 14.3% (2-14) from beyond the arc.

The Storm maintains a two-game lead over Las Vegas for the top seed in the WNBA. 

Next, Seattle will return to the Emerald City to host the Washington Mystics on Tuesday, June 22nd at 7:00 p.m.
