In the first three games of the 2017 season, Jewell Loyd has already racked up 78 points, scoring at least 25 in each contest, all of which she accomplished on 55.6 percent shooting or better. She hit 10 field goals in each game, and on May 21 vs. Washington, she went 10-for-14 from the floor for a 71.4 percent clip and also scored her 1,000th point for her career. She currently leads both the team and WNBA in scoring with 26 points per game.
Crystal Langhorne has been just as deadly from the field for the Storm, hitting 75 percent of her shots, including a 91.7 percent clip from the charity stripe. Entering the weekend, she sits tied for second for the best career field goal percentage in WNBA history at 56.6 percent. This season, Langhorne is averaging nearly 16 points and five rebounds per game.
While Seattle owns a 9-7 record all-time vs. New York at KeyArena, the Storm hasn’t topped the Liberty in the Emerald City since the 2012 campaign. Prior to dropping four straight vs. New York, Seattle had won eight in a row at home against the Eastern Conference foe, a winning streak that dated back to 2005. The last four meetings against New York at KeyArena have been decided by an average of 5.3 points, including a four-point overtime loss on July 24, 2014.
