Uh, the good vibes before the Indiana game were squashed by the second quarter -- the Storm didn't hit a bucket until Lauren Jackson's turnaround jump shot with 2:28 remaining. The Storm was outscored 29-4 in the period and is down 50-30.
Storm coach Anne Donovan ran Jackson at small forward for the first time this season. I'll ask after the game if that had anything to do with the interruption in play that had Seattle up by eight in the opening quarter.
The Storm's point total in the second quarter is a franchise low, but Seattle was down by 22 in the season opener and rallied to defeat Houston, which was a franchise record for comebacks.
