Following the timeout, the Storm cut the lead to seven on a basket by Janell Burse that got the crowd back into the game. Burse followed that with a big defensive play at the other end, blocking a shot in the paint that triggered a fastbreak.
However, the Sun recovered and forced a turnover. Instead of a five-point game, the Sun made it an 11-point spread with layups by Lindsay Whalen and Katie Douglas. Score: Sun 68, Storm 57. Timeout Storm.
