The Los Angeles Sparks are still looking for their first win after a 0-7 start. The Los Angeles Sparks are averaging 65.9 points on 40.9 percent shooting and allowing 76 points on 44.8 percent shooting. Kristi Toliver is averaging 30 points and two assists and Jantel Lavender is averaging 15 points and 10.1 rebounds. Nneka Ogwumike is grabbing 9.7 rebounds and Temeka Johnson is dishing 6.4 assists. The Los Angeles Sparks are just dreadful offensively with so many injuries and the absences of Candace Parker. The good news for the Sparks is that two of their last three losses have been decided by four points. Andrea Hoover and Farhiya Abdi are questionable with injuries.
The Stars are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. Western Conference and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Sparks are 5-22 ATS in their last 27 home games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Stars are 1-4-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Los Angeles.
The Sparks are getting closer and closer to a victory, and if they're going to win a game anytime soon, it would probably be this one against a team that's just as bad. If forced to cap this game, I'm looking for LA to finally get in the win column and cover the tiny number.
