The explanation for this game is pretty obvious: the Silver Stars had a terrible shooting night, with a season-low 27.7% field goal percentage while the Storm shot 41.5%.
But the Storm also held their guests to season lows in points (55), 3pt % (17.6%), three-pointers (3) and assists (6). But the biggest thing for a team that has thrived on chemistry and balance was the Silver Stars' synergy: 0.63.
The Storm played outstanding defense, but really didn't need a stellar offensive performance to beat a team playing that poorly.
Shout out to A-Rob, my (biased) choice for Most Improved Player, who finished with a game-high tying 9 rebounds. Is it the Mavs themed hair?
