    The Shock returned from a 1-2 road trip
to suffer their third straight loss, a 79-75
Tuesday night decision vs Seattle.
    Detroit couldn't overcome a 17-P halftime
defecit, even though they started the 3rd-Qtr
on a 13-0 run. The Shock briefly tied 67-all with
3:34 remaining on a 3-point play by Taj McWilliams,
but a next possession triple by Seattle's Lauren
Jackson put the Storm ahead to stay.
    Two-time WNBA MVP Jackson carried the Storm
to the victory with her 36-P performance, the most
allowed by Detroit this year and the most ever by a
Storm player vs the Shock. Jackson went 14-of-24 shooting.
    Detroit's Deanna Nolan was almost as good with 29-P on 12-of-25 from the field, the top
effort by a Shock player this season.
    The Shock were only 1-of-13 on 3-point attempts. Nolan was 0-for-5 to account for a
large portion of her misses.
    Former Shock star Swin Cash scored 15-P and Sue Bird added 13-P for Seattle.
    Rookie reserve Shavonte Zellous had 15-P and McWilliams 11-P for Detroit.
    Detroit fell to 9-14 this year.
    Seattle halted a two-game losing skid to go tio 14-11.


SHOCK H-COACH RICK MAHORN:   "We had a defensive game plan that if (Jackson)
were to pop out (on the perimeter), we would have somebody on her and have some
pressure on her. But you’ve got to give it to (Seattle), they executed well and they
went to their horse in Lauren Jackson.”

SHOCK GD DEANNA NOLAN:   "(Jackson) got hot pretty early. We were very lethargic
and very stagnant, no rhythm at all on offense...In the second half...fight fire with
fire, somebody had to get hot or get going or get rolling and it was me...Play four
quarters of basketball like that,  we win by 15, 20, easily. It’s kind of hard when you
dig yourself a hole and you’re fighting, fighting, fighting and just come up short like
we did today.”

STORM FWD LAUEN JACKSON:   "There was no way in hell I was losing this game tonight.
We needed this one too much.''


    Detroit followed an 8-P 3rd-Qtr at Indiana Saturday with an 8-P 1st-Qtr Tuesday
at home.
