Phoenix, the No. 5 seed in the WNBA Playoffs, escaped with an 83-82 win over No. 8 New York in its first-round game on Thursday night.

In that game, Storm guard Jewell Loyd scored 37 points—the most by a player in the WNBA this season—including tying a WNBA record with 22 points in the first quarter.

Seattle won the season series with Phoenix 2-1, winning both games at home by seven and nine points, respectively, and losing in Phoenix 85-77. The Storm has won eight of the last 10 games in the series overall and leads the all-time series 46-32. That includes a 25-14 edge at home and a 3-0 mark in games at Angel Of The Winds Arena. However, the Mercury lead the playoff series 7-6 with the home team winning nearly each game. The Storm is 5-2 at home vs Phoenix in the playoffs, winning its last three, while the Mercury hold a 5-1 edge in Phoenix.
