The Sparks were trailing by 15 points in the second quarter after watching Seattle repeatedly make open shots. With every other WNBA first-round series ending in a sweep, this one seemed ready to follow suit. But the Sparks, seeded first in the Western Conference, decided they weren't going out like that. They rallied Sunday to beat the Storm, 78-70, at Staples Center to force a third and deciding game on Tuesday.

The Sparks were looking so cool, so confident with a 14-point lead to start the fourth quarter of Tuesday's final first-round game against Seattle. You could almost see the cellphones popping open seeking flight information to Sacramento. Of course it wouldn't be that easy. The Storm rallied furiously, reducing the Sparks' lead to one point with 28.4 seconds left.

When you've waited 25 years to win a championship, as Seattle has, you can be forgiven for acting a little goofy. Cutting down the nets after a title win is something that is supposed to happen only in college tournaments. But Seattle won't apologize for net-cutting, champagne spraying, endless hip-hop riffs or bad conga lines.

The Seattle Storm caught a break Monday when guard Sue Bird's injury was found to be less serious than first believed. She is expected to play in tonight's deciding Game 3 of the WNBA Western Conference first-round playoff series against the Sparks, starting at 7 at Staples Center. The Sparks are hoping Chamique Holdsclaw can get on the court as well, even though the ligament problem in the bottom of her left foot remains extremely painful.

Nothing shakes an athlete quite like hearing "you're not good enough" to make the team. It is a message that can crush the spirit or awaken a new determination. Until last year, Michelle Greco, 23, had never been told "you're not good enough" as a basketball player. Certainly not at La Crescenta Crescenta Valley High, where she was a four-time Pacific League most valuable player, a two-time high school All-American and the state Division I player of the year.
