Camille Little felt like everything was going in slow motion. She was fast enough to extend the Seattle Storm's season. Little stole an inbounds pass, took a return pass from Tanisha Wright and converted a layup with five seconds left Friday night, helping the Storm stun the Sparks, 75-74, and even the best-of-three WNBA Western Conference semifinals. Game 3 is Sunday in Seattle. The Sparks were up, 74-70, when Sue Bird drained a three-pointer with 10.7 seconds left, cutting the lead to one. The Sparks called a timeout and inbounded from the sideline near midcourt.

While the team huddled together, Sparks Coach Michael Cooper was about to rip into his players. Before he could, though, his players took care of it. They had a 12-point lead with five minutes 14 seconds remaining in Game 1 of their best-of-three Western Conference semifinals matchup with Seattle. But with the way the Storm kept chipping away at their lead, nothing was safe. Hence, the discussion during a timeout. "Sometimes the team has to do that and take responsibility like a veteran team like we do," Cooper said.

Retirement will have to wait for another day for Lisa Leslie -- or at least for another two games. Leslie had 13 points and eight rebounds, and Candace Parker scored 22 points and keyed a second-quarter run that led the Sparks to a 75-64 victory over the Seattle Storm on Sunday in the deciding third game of the WNBA Western Conference semifinals. It was the second straight year the Sparks eliminated the Storm in the opening round by winning Game 3 at Seattle. They bounced back from Friday night's 75-74 loss in Game 2, in which the Storm scored five points in the final 14 seconds.

Look out, WNBA, Bill Laimbeer's getting back that feeling, the one he had when the Detroit Shock rolled to the WNBA championship in 2003. The Shock was the league's last unbeaten team before losing at home to Seattle on Wednesday, and it is off to the kind of start that suggests it could be a dominating team. Before Friday's 69-55 victory over Charlotte, Detroit was averaging 71.8 points and giving up 69. But more impressive has been the rebound differential.
