LOS ANGELES -- Crystal Langhorne scored 18 points, including a go-ahead layup with 2:34 remaining, and the Seattle Storm rallied to beat the Los Angeles Sparks 85-77 on Tuesday, spoiling Candace Parker's big night.
Parker had 12 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists -- narrowly missing the WNBA's sixth triple-double. Margo Dydek, Lisa Leslie, Sheryl Swoopes, Deanna Nolan and Temeka Johnson are the only WNBA players with regular-seasons triple-doubles.
After Langhorne's layup, Jenna O'Hea hit a 3-pointer on Seattle's next possession and Langhorne had a putback to cap the Storm's 7-0 run for an 81-74 lead. After Kristi Toliver hit a 3-pointer to cut Los Angeles' deficit to 81-77, Jewell Loyd hit a fadeaway jumper with the shot clock winding down and O'Hea made two free throws with 24 seconds left.
Sue Bird, Jewell Loyd and Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis added 15 points apiece for Seattle (6-17). Mosqueda-Lewis scored 12 first-half points to set a career-high.
Seattle snapped a five-game losing streak and beat Los Angeles for the fourth straight time -- including its only two road wins.
Jantel Lavender added 22 points and Nneka Ogwumike 16 for Los Angeles (7-16).
Ogwumike, Parker and Lavender all scored in double-figures in the first half, helping Los Angeles hold a 48-35 halftime lead.
Los Angeles led by 16 early in the second half, but Seattle outscored the Sparks 24-16 in the third quarter to pull within 64-59. Bird's jumper with 4:35 remaining gave Seattle a 72-71 lead -- its first since 3-2.
Los Angeles' Alana Beard did not play because of a quadriceps injury suffered Sunday.
