Sparks Hope Home Court Advantage Pays Off
July 13, 2017
The Los Angeles Sparks began their longest home-stand of the season last Thursday when they faced Connecticut. They play three more home games starting with Monday's game against Indiana at 7:30 p.m. On Thursday July 20, they battle Chicago at 12:30 p.m. and Tuesday, July 25, they play Seattle at 7:30 p.m.
At press time the Sparks were the only team that had not lost a home game this season so home court is very important to a team that lost two road games in a row to Minnesota and Seattle last week. At 12-5, the Sparks are still in second place behind 13-2 Minnesota.
Before the loss to Minnesota the Sparks were 10-1 in their last 11 games so this not the time to panic. The team must regroup and like the Sparks players always say, trust the process. The Sparks have the talent to be one of the top teams in the WNBA, but do they have enough to defend their 2016 WNBA title?
