Candace Parker scored a season-high 25 points and the Sky beat the Seattle Storm 107-75 on Sunday in Everett,Washington,to complete a two-game sweep. They also beat the Storm 73-69 on Thursday.

The Sky (14-12) tied their franchise record with 15 three-pointers and set the club mark for margin of victory at 32. It was also the worst home loss in Storm history.

The Sky, who shot 15-for-22 from three-point range (68.2%), have won three in a row.

The arrow for the Sky, who have battled inconsistency, is pointing in the right direction with six games left in the regular season.

‘‘I think the key is to stay even-keeled,’’ Parker said. ‘‘I like our chances. If we can figure it out, I like our chances, and that’s why a lot of us are here. With that being said, I think we’re able to beat anybody, but we’re also able to lose to anybody, so until we fix that, we’ve got to continue to grind it out.’’

Seattle (18-10) has lost three in a row.

Parker scored 19 points on 8-for-12 shooting in the first half as the Sky erupted for 63 points to take a 22-point lead.
