Best bet on the Tube

 

A year ago, onlookers called for Storm guard Katie Smith’s retirement. The 14-year WNBA veteran shot 27.7 percent from the field in the team’s opening 14 games. She finished the season scoring a career-low 7.5 points as a reserve, highlighting Seattle’s lack of bench production as the team exited the playoffs after the first round. “I knew I could play better,” Smith said. She’ll have to today ( 6 p.m. on ESPN2) as Seattle, down 1-0 in the best-of-3 series, meets Minnesota in KeyArena. Moved into the starting lineup earlier this season, Smith re-emerged to play some vintage basketball down the stretch of the season. – Seattle Times
