[3:00 PM] Sparks @ Sky

Who will WIN this matchup?

Los Angeles Sparks (26-8)

@ Chicago Sky (18-16)


Current odds:

Los Angeles Sparks: (-370)

Chicago Sky: (+290)

The line for this game is Sparks by 8.5 points.

The Sky have one more chance to keep their season alive, as the scene shifts from Southern California to the Chicago suburb of Rosemont, Ill., and Allstate Arena on Sunday afternoon for Game 3 of the best-of-five series.

For the depleted Sky — who have been without 2015 MVP Elena Delle Donne for eight straight games including its three playoff contests — it’s a matter of finding their stride for long enough to counter Los Angeles’ talented wave after wave of clutch performances.

Parker set the tone for the Sparks in the early going with eight points, six rebounds and three assists in the first quarter. She either scored or assisted on Los Angeles’ first five baskets. She’s had double-doubles in the first two games of the series and on Friday was two assists away for her first career triple-double.

Six players scored in double figures for the Sky in Game 2, led by reserves Clarissa Dos Santos with 15 points and Jamierra Faulkner with 14.

Los Angeles has now won all five games between the two teams this season, including two on the Sky’s home floor when Chicago had Delle Donne in the lineup.
