SEATTLE (AP) — Tanisha Wright scored 13 points, including a pair of free throws with 10.3 seconds left, and the Seattle Storm hung on to hand the Minnesota Lynx their first loss of the season Friday night, 65-62.

Crystal Langhorne also scored 13 for the Storm (3-6). Camille Little added 12 points, draining a 3-pointer with 2:07 to play for a 59-57 lead. Seattle never trailed again.

Maya Moore and Seimone Augustus scored 12 points apiece for the Lynx (7-1), who won their opening seven games for the second time in franchise history. The only better start was in 2012 when Minnesota won its first 10 games. Moore came into the game averaging 27.6 points, and Augustus was averaging 19.9.

The Storm were down 51-45 early in the fourth quarter when they went on an 11-2 run. The Lynx scored four straight to take a 57-56 advantage before Little’s go-ahead 3-pointer.
