Storm Fall To Mystics 80-71

Perhaps after suffering their biggest loss of the season to the Connecticut Sun, the Seattle Storm felt that it was time to adjust the way in which they rested their starters.

Aside from star center Lauren Jackson playing just under 25 minutes, the Storm’s rotation looked a lot more normal but once again a hungrier team still fighting to secure a playoff spot won.

The Washington Mystics managed to go the entire fourth quarter without turnover while forcing the Storm into 11 second half turnovers to win 80-71 at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC.

Mystics forward Monique Currie, who played well against the Storm earlier this season at KeyArena, led the way for the Mystics with 25 points including 5-7 shooting from beyond the arc. Forward Swin Cash led the Storm with 15 points while Jackson added 14.

With home court advantage wrapped up throughout the playoffs, the loss means little to the Storm while the Mystics can clinch a playoff spot with a Connecticut Sun loss to the Indiana Fever today.
