The following is the complete 2018 Regular Season schedule for the Seattle Storm.
The Storm are entering their 19th Season as members of the WNBA. The Storm play in the Western Conference, along with the Dallas Wings, Los Angeles Sparks, Minnesota Lynx, and the Phoenix Mercury. New to the conference in 2018 is the Las Vegas Aces, formerly known as the San Antonio Stars from 2003-2017. The Storm will play their home games at KeyArena before the Oakview Group renovation is set to begin later this year.
With a talented core of players such as Breanna Stewart, Sue Bird, and Jewel Lloyd, the Storm were expected to emerge as a breakout contender in 2017. After a disappointing 10-16 start, the Storm fired head coach Jenny Boucek, the first time a head coach has been fired during the middle of the season in team history. Under interim head coach Gary Kloppenburg, Seattle finished the season 5-3 to clinch a playoff berth as the 8th Overall seed.
This season, the Storm will be coached by longtime head coach Dan Hughes, a 2-time Coach of the Year winner with the defunct Cleveland Rockers and San Antonio Silver Stars.
Seattle opens the season at home against the Phoenix Mercury on May 20th. The game will be a rematch of last season's First Round single elimination playoff game, won by the Mercury 79-69 in Phoenix. After the home opener, the Storm will take on Phoenix once again at Talking Stick Resort Arena on May 23rd. The Storm will return home to face the Chicago Sky on May 25. The Storm will then hit the road once again with their first visit to Las Vegas to take on the Aces at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
Seattle's longest home stand of the season is five games, coming from June 10 to June 22. The Storm will also have a three game home stand from July 8 to July 14, as well as three two-game home stands from May 29-31, June 28-July 1, and August 17-19.
The Storm's longest road trip will span five games from July 18-July 31, with games at Chicago, Connecticut, Atlanta, Indiana, and Phoenix. After a brief single home date on August 3, Seattle will hit the road again for a four game trip against New York, Indiana, Washington, and Minnesota.
National broadcast information on ESPN2, NBA TV and Twitter is listed in parenthesis. Game times are listed in Pacific Time (PST) and are subject to change. Local home telecasts will be aired on JoeTV, a sister affiliate to Seattle's Q13 Fox channel. In addition to 15 home games, JoeTV will also air a Storm road game for the first time when the Storm take on the Las Vegas Aces on May 27. Home games are listed in bold green. Updated results will appear bold for wins.
