Tirrell Baines led the Storm with 22 points and 7 rebounds while Jahii Carson contributed 20 points, 9 assists and 4 rebounds and Nick Okorie chipped in 18 points, 5 assists and 2 rebounds.
The Storm battled back after being down at halftime and trailing into the fourth.
Jahii Carson's steal late in the final quarter gave the Storm a slim one point lead, followed by Nick Okorie's three-pointer.
Terry Thomas had another steal soon after for the Storm to further extend the lead before the game was tied at 100 with under a minute left.
