Sparks keep most of the core except for pg and 3 pt specialist, Kristi Tolliver but Chelsea Gray has emerged as a solid contributor and dare I say, a closer in the 4th quarter.

Nneka has added the 3 pt shot to her game and they managed to acquire Odyssey Sims, a veteran back up pg. The story this season has been the defensive play of Alana Beard. It's Beard's final season and she's in peak form; Beard leads the league in steals and is a favorite for DPOY.

Currently, the Sparks have a 7 game win streak. They stumbled a bit when Sims sprained her ankle, but Sims is back and the Sparks have looked terrific the past 2 weeks. They play Washington this afternoon at 2:00 pm on Spectrum Sportsnet.

I caught the end of the game when they beat whoever it was yesterday. Woot! #GoSparks!

Sparks have 3 championships now. They won back to back championships in 2001 and 2002 under Coach and Laker legend Michael Cooper. They won again last season, beating the Minnesota Lynx in a decisive game 5 on the road on a fadeway putback jumper by Nneka with 2 seconds left.

Nice comeback from 17 points down to beat the Mystics yesterday (on Nneka's birthday).

On to Minnesota now to play the league-leading Lynx in a rematch of last years Finals!
