Third quarter under way

The pace of the game has picked up considerably. Katie Douglas opened the second half with a jumper and answered two free throws by Iziane Castro Marques with an extra-long 3-pointer to give the Sun its biggest lead of the game (13 points) at 47-34.

Lauren Jackson has seen enough. Following a 15-foot jumper from teammate Janell Burse, the Storm All-Star went to work inside, scoring on a nice turnaround move under the basket and following that with a tough shot over two defenders to pull the Storm with seven at 49-42.

The Storm isn't going to let this game get away. Betty Lennox just scored on a hard drive to the basket at the 5:26 mark to make it 49-44, but missed the chance to make it a 3-point play by missing the free throw. It was her first miss in 34 attempts.
