The Storm were only blown aside after Wilbur Johnson added some fire and intensity to Sheffield's defence, allowing Mark Robinson, Terrell Myers and John Amaechi to profit at the other end. The win takes Sheffield alongside Newcastle on 34 points, two points behind joint leaders Leopards, Birmingham and London Towers.
Derby ran the first quarter, opening a 25-17 lead, but hit the self-destruct button in the second to let Sharks open a 37-33 lead and Derby never led again.
