WNBA ROUNDUP
Saturday's games
Storm 74, Shock 71
SEATTLE -- Lauren Jackson scored 21 points, Sue Bird had 14 and Betty Lennox added 10, leading Seattle over Detroit in a meeting between the last two WNBA champions. Jackson started and wore a brace on her right ankle, four days after re-injuring the same ankle the former MVP had surgically repaired before the season. Deanna Nolan scored 22 points for Detroit (8-11), which has lost 10 of its last 12 games. Cheryl Ford added 15 points and 16 rebounds. The Storm (12-10) couldn't protect a 24-12 lead midway through the first half, but used a 7-0 scoring run late in the second half to build a 67-63 lead with 4:19 to play. A free-throw by Ruth Riley tied the game at 71, but Lennox scored the last three points.
Sparks 69, Comets 59
HOUSTON -- Tamika Whitmore scored 20 points to lead Los Angeles in a game that featured technicals on Olympians Lisa Leslie and Sheryl Swoopes after a scuffle. Chamique Holdsclaw added 15 points for the Sparks (11-9), who shot 47 percent. Houston trailed 66-52 after Swoopes' layup with 5:30 remaining. She then bumped Leslie under the basket, and Leslie responded by shoving Swoopes in the back. Swoopes scored 17 points for the Comets (12-0), who have lost two in a row at home after beating Western Conference-leading Sacramento. Mwadi Mabika had 11 points and Leslie added 11 points and 10 rebounds.
Fever 63, Sting 46
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Ebony Hoffman and Jurgita Streimikyte each scored 13 points and Indiana held Charlotte to a season-worst 27 percent shooting. The Fever (13-7) won for the fifth time in six games. Tammy Sutton-Brown had 13 points and Sheri Sam added 10 points for the last-place Sting (3-18), who lost their sixth straight game. The Fever outscored the Sting 19-5 in an 8-minute stretch to take a 32-19 lead.
