Storm Matchups

The WNBA recently released their schedule and the Seattle Storm will open up the season at home facing the L.A. Sparks on May 18th. Seattle will play 5 games this season against their rivals of the Sparks and the Phoenix Mercury and they will also have 5 games televised on ESPN2.

There will be a month long break from July 14 to Aug. 15 for the Olympics.

One player that will not be rested for the Storm is C Lauren Jackson, who will be playing for the Australian national team shooting for gold in London.

Seattle’s last game will be a fun one facing the Atlanta Dream, as that game will be the annual Kids Day game.

When the WNBA resumes in mid-August the Storm will be lucky enough to start a 7-game home stand starting on the 16th with a match up against the Mercury.

After the Olympic break the Storm will play 10 of their first 15 games at home at KeyArena. That is a good thing, as Seattle can really take control of the Western Conference at that time if they can take care of business in their house.

Seattle Storm President and CEO Karen Bryant stated, “2012 promises to be a very exciting year. Between the Olympics, Lauren’s return after the Games and more rivalry matchups than ever, we think this year is going to be absolutely action-packed.”

Dads are special for the Storm this season, as they have their annual Dads and Daughters game on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 17 with a great game facing the defending champion Minnesota Lynx.

There are other theme games for Seattle this season, but much like the local broadcast schedule both will be released before the season.

The Storm have high hopes this season and look to get back to the Finals, which they won in 2010, after losing to the Mercury in the Conference Semifinals.
