Seattle Storm Vs. San Antonio Silver Stars Halftime Score: Defense Helps Storm To 38-22 Lead

The easiest way to explain the Seattle Storm's 38-22 first half lead against the San Antonio Silver Stars tonight is simply saying that they're hard to beat in KeyArena.

But the highlight of their first half performance is unquestionably their defense.

The Storm held the Silver Stars to 2-for-15 shooting in the first half All-Star rookie forward Danielle Adams to one point and perrennial All-Star Becky Hammon to three points. As evidenced by the Silver Stars' 15 shots in the second quarter, it's not that the Storm are even forcing a lot of turnovers, but they're just aggressively contesting shots all over the court.

And after a slow start offensively, the Storm found some rhythm of their own in the second quarter as well.

Camille Little has finally found her touch this season, scoring eight points while Swin Cash has seven points and seven rebounds. The Storm's struggles off the bench have also subsided with seven points from Le'coe Willingham.

Sophia Young leads the Silver Stars with 11 points.
