Los Angeles Sparks

The Los Angeles Sparks played the Las Vegas Aces and came away with a 84-66 defeat last time out. Los Angeles won the game with a 40.7 percent field goal percentage (24 of 59) and two out of twelve three-point attempts. Jordin Canada finished with 11 points on 4 of her 9 attempts. She played for 38 minutes while grabbing 7 boards.

Prediction

Since Phoenix are averaging 83.1 points per game as a team, I anticipate Phoenix to win this contest at home due to Los Angeles' recent poor play.


Pick: Phoenix Mercury -3.5
