AUS - Jackson, Taylor and Snell carve up WNBA


CANBERRA (WNBA)

Jackson equalled her WNBA career high, dropping 35 points as well as grabbing 10 rebounds to lead the Seattle Storm to an 85-71 victory over the Los Angeles Sparks.

Phoenix team mates Taylor and Snell contributed a season high 30 points and 17 points respectively in the Mercury’s 90-85 victory over the Houston Comets.

"After a few losses we needed to get a win more than anyone realises," Taylor said.

"Now we have a little bit of a break we can work on the things that we need to but we had to get that win going into this break because we play Houston again next."

Jackson, 26, shot at 64% from the field, connecting on 14-of-22 shots and scored 20 points more than anyone other player in the game.

Taylor, the 2006 FIBA World Championships MVP, scored 13 points in the fourth quarter to steer the short handed Phoenix, who were without stars Diana Taurasi, who is serving a two game suspension for inappropriate conduct toward officials, and Cappie Pondexter (Groin).

She also contributed nine rebounds and four assists.

With Taurasi suspended, Snell made the most of her starting position, dropping five 3-point baskets to go with seven rebounds and 2 assists in 36 minutes on court.

The Mercury snapped a three game losing streak and improves to third position in the Western Conference with an 8-and-7 win/loss record.

Jackson’s Seattle is back in fifth position with a 6-and-6 record.

Jackson is averaging 21.3 points and 8.6 rebounds per game this season while Taylor is averaging 13.5 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game.
