As part of Seattle’s home opener, the first 3,000 fans in attendance will receive a Sue Bird Bobblehead to celebrate her WNBA assist record last season! Seattle has won nine of its last 12 home openers and is aiming for its second straight home opener victory after defeating the Indiana Fever 87-82 last season on May 14.
Rookie and fifth overall pick Jordin Canada has gotten off to a very strong start, helping the Storm to its first undefeated preseason since 2013. Over two games, she averaged 16 points and three assists while shooting 93 percent from the free throw line.
