Aug. 5, 2011


Sue Bird was the hero Friday, delivering the winning shot with 0.4 seconds left to give the Storm an 81-79 victory over the Connecticut Sun. The Storm led nearly the entire way, but Tina Charles' putback threatened to win it for Connecticut before Bird's shot. Check out a gallery of the best photos from the game.
