Betty Lennox scored a season-high 27 points for Seattle. Lauren Jackson had 15 points and 11 rebounds and Sue Bird added 10 points for the Storm, who improved to 4-0 at home in the postseason.

Seattle drew 17,072 fans to the Key Arena for the game and expect to have a similar crowd behind them for Game 3 Tuesday.
