SEATTLE (AP) -- Camille Little scored 16 points to lead four players in double figures and the Seattle Storm beat the Minnesota Lynx 65-55 Friday night despite playing without Lauren Jackson.
Swin Cash added 13 and Tanisha Wright and Le'coe Willingham had 11 each for Seattle (4-2).
Seimone Augustus scored 17 points to lead Minnesota (5-2). Amber Harris added 11 points and Lindsay Whalen 10. Rebekkah Brunson had two points and seven rebounds to end a league record-tying six-game double-double streak to start the season.
Wright scored seven in the fourth quarter to help the Storm break open the game after the Lynx had cut the lead to 47-45 after three quarters.
The Storm played without Jackson, a three-time WNBA MVP. She will be out of the lineup for at least three weeks with a hip injury.
