A similar recipe to the one that produced a blowout win Thursday at KeyArena produced a comfortable Storm victory at Tulsa in the rematch two days later. Excellent ball movement helped the Storm shoot 58.2 percent from the field and 47.4 percent beyond the arc. The big beneficiary was forward Camille Little, who scored a career-high 28 points on 12-of-17 shooting. Little added nine rebounds, four assists and two blocks during the best all-around performance of her WNBA career.
The Storm pulled away during the second quarter, led by double digits throughout the second half and turned the game into a rout by outscoring the Shock 22-12 in the final period. Tough Storm defense helped hold Tulsa to 33.8 percent shooting. Besides Little, three other starters scored double figures. Lauren Jackson had 10 points and eight rebounds and Tanisha Wright handed out seven assists.

"I think the person that's really benefiting from Lauren, Ann and Tina being back is Camille Little. Because now all of the sudden she gets a lot of one-on-ones. Instead of playing in congestion, now you have to guard those people and now Camille's playing with a lot of space around her.."
