Seattle Storm Vs. Minnesota Lynx Halftime Score: Storm Down 49-30

Once again, turnovers are killing the Seattle Storm through one half of play.

Six first quarter turnovers helped fuel an extended Minnesota Lynx run and they used the momentum to take a 49-30 lead into halftime.

With the Storm's offense stalled due to turnovers, they reverted to settling for jumpers and made rushed decisions, which only made matters worse. Further compounding the problem was missed layups and mental lapses on defense, which led to 15 Lynx free throws. The Storm finished the half with 11 turnovers.

Although Swin Cash led the Storm with a game-high 12 points, no other starter had more than two points. Maya Moore and Seimone Augustus chipped in 10 points apiece for the Lynx, who shot 56.3 percent in the second quarter.

It wouldn't be uncharacteristic of for the Storm to stage a second half come back, but they'll have to do a better job of controlling the ball and not giving the Lynx easy points.
