Sue Bird and Tanisha Wright added 11 points apiece for Seattle (2-5), which snapped a two-game losing streak in its first home game since the season opener

Glory Johnson scored a season-high 21 points and had nine rebounds to lead Tulsa (0-5), the only winless team in the WNBA.

Skylar Diggins scored on a drive to cut the lead to 62-60 with 33 seconds left after Bird had missed a 3-pointer. Camille Little missed a shot with 13.9 seconds left that Langhorne rebounded only to have Diggins steal the ball.
