First Winning Streak Of 2013 For Shock With Blowout Of Seattle

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

The Tulsa Shock hasn't had the best start to the 2013 season, but they do seem to have the Seattle Storm's number.

The Shock picked up its second win of the season against the Storm, blowing out Seattle 92-70 in the most lopsided win since the franchise relocated to Tulsa.

The win gave Tulsa its first winning streak of the season.

Roneeka Hodges came off the bench to score 19 points, hitting 4-of-6 3-pointers to lead the Shock offensively. Glory Johnson had 14 points and 12 rebounds despite shooting just 2-for-8 from the field. She hit 10 of her 12 free throw attempts for the game.

Skylar Diggins and Nicole Powell each scored 11 points for Tulsa while Jennifer Lacy and Angel Goodrich each scored 10 each.

Tianna Hawkins led the Storm with 17 points. Temeka Johnson had 13 points and Shekinna Stricklen and Alysha Clark each scored 10. Tina Thompson, the WNBA's all-time leading scorer, was limited to three points on 1-for-8 shooting.

Tulsa never trailed in the game, jumping out to a 14-2 lead in the first quarter and never looking back. Seattle cut a 41-30 halftime deficit to six points in the opening minutes of the third quarter, but Tulsa responded with a 21-9 run over the next seven minutes to take a 66-44 lead with 2:22 remaining in the third quarter.

The Shock eventually increased its lead to 25 points early in the fourth quarter and coasted from there.

Tulsa will try to extend its new winning streak on the road starting Sunday night in Minnesota. The Shock takes on the Lynx at 6 p.m. in the first game of a four-game road trip.
