Halftime at KeyArena: Storm 47, Mercury 33

As good as the Storm’s defense has been all season, don’t let this halftime boxscore fool you — the Storm are not exactly containing the Mercury; the Mercury are just missing a lot of very easy shots.

And it started out going both ways, with the Storm missing a lot of easy shots as well.

Lauren Jackson has certainly done her MVP thing to get the Storm going, finishing the half with 17 points and 12 rebounds. However, the big contributions in this game were from the bench with both Svetlana Abrosimova and Le’coe Willingham coming in to help give the Storm a boost and finishing the half with 10 and 6 points respectively.

Something to watch: Taurasi is 2-8 with 7 points in the first half. Let’s see how she responds in the second half.
