POW

Storm All-Star Lauren Jackson was named Player of the Week, again. Would say this award just needs to be named after her, but Lisa Leslie still leads in most POWs in a career at 14. Jackson is tied with Indiana forward Tamika Catchings at 11.
Jackson couldn’t be denied her second consecutive POW as she scored a WNBA-tying 47 points in a loss to Washington and her career 4,000th in a win against Indiana. And, oh, she had 29 in a loss to San Antonio.
Jackson does match Leslie’s four POWs received last season when the latter won MVP. But San Antonio guard Becky Hammon will be a serious contender for Jackson for MVP in these final weeks. You’d almost have to search for a way not to vote for Jackson, but Hammon has averaged 21.0 points against the Storm, including a game-high 30 Sunday, and those weren’t all from outside. She drove into Jackson’s paint for a few dazzling layins in those three matchups, missing one outing against the Storm because of a sprained foot.
San Antonio has swept Seattle and Hammon ranks in the top-three league-wide in scoring and assists. Plus, her team is best in the West. Shouldn’t that count for something?
