Seattle Storm eye West title, Taurasi


They call them chips, and no one stacks them better than Diana Taurasi. The Phoenix guard has won so many championships – or chips – that Seattle guard Svetlana Abrosimova playfully wondered if it was a requirement to play Taurasi for the right to get one. “For the last seven years, especially playing in Europe, it was, ‘We have to beat Diana Taurasi,’ ” Abrosimova said. “For me, the championship is associated with her. You have to beat her to become the champion.” Taurasi’s team faces possible elimination in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals today (ABC, noon) after she had a miserable opener in the best-of-3 series against Seattle with a 2-of-15 shooting night at KeyArena on Thursday.
