BRADENTON, Fla. — Breanna Stewart scored 27 points and the Seattle Storm made all 10 of their free throws at the end to fend of the Atlanta Dream and Chennedy Carter 93-92 on Thursday night.

The Storm (5-1) made 25 of 27 foul shots, and the Dream (2-4) buried three 3-pointers in the final 13.5 seconds.

Carter led the Dream with a career-high 35 points – tied for the fifth most by a rookie according to the Elias Sports Bureau . Carter finished 11-of-17 shooting, including 3 of 4 from 3-point range and made all 10 of her free throws.

The last player in the WNBA with 35 or more points in a regular-season game was the Indiana Fever’s Kelsey Mitchell who scored 38 points against the Connecticut Sun on Sept. 8, 2019.

Carter, the No. 4 draft pick out of Texas A&M, became the first rookie in Dream history to score 25 or more points in consecutive games.

Atlanta held a 14-9 lead in the first quarter after Monique Billings’ layup three minutes in. Stewart then countered scoring nine straight points in the next 77 seconds and the Storm went on a 16-0 run.
