DALLAS — Skylar Diggins-Smith scored 27 points and Liz Cambage added 25 to help Dallas hold off Seattle 94-90 on Saturday night.

The Wings rebounded from a tough loss to New York to end a three-game road trip by cooling off the Storm, which had won five straight.

Cambage built on a 28-point, 16-board outing against the Liberty by grabbing seven boards and hitting 10 of 15 from the free-throw line.

The Wings (3-3) held the Storm’s Jewell Loyd to just 16 points, ending her string of scoring 20 or more points in five consecutive games. She was just 5 of 17 from the field, including 1 for 8 from behind the three-point line.
