SEATTLE - Camille Little felt like everything was going in slow motion. She was fast enough to extend the Seattle Storm's season.
Little stole an inbounds pass, took a return pass from Tanisha Wright, and converted a layup with 5 seconds left Friday night, helping the Storm stun the Los Angeles Sparks 75-74 and even the best-of-3 WNBA Western Conference semifinals.
Game 3 is Sunday in Seattle.
The Sparks were up 74-70 when Sue Bird drained a 3-pointer with 10.7 seconds left, cutting the lead to one. Los Angeles called a timeout and inbounded from the sideline near midcourt. Little stole it, went under the hoop and laid it in one-handed.
"Ashley Walker pressured the ball (on the inbounds pass by L.A.'s Noelle Quinn), and when the ball went in the air, I got a hand on it," said Little, who finished with eight points. "You really can't think about it. It should be something we should be able to do. It was all in slow motion.
"Everyone did a good job all around for us to be in that position," Little said. "If Sue didn't hit that shot, the score would have been real different."
