Nneka Ogwumike was the name of this game from start to finish! She led her team with 25 points and 12 rebounds racking up a double double. She was so great to watch in this game. It seemed like every time she shot the ball it went in. She shot 79% from the field in this game. Candace Parker was right there behind her 23 points. She, too, had a double double with 10 rebounds. Ogwumike and Parker combined to grab 22 rebounds and score 48 points. These two were a dynamic duo down low and the Mercury couldn’t stop them. Delisha Milton-Jones joined in on the post fun scoring 21 points.
The Mercury couldn’t stop the post game. The 3 bigs on the Sparks team ran all over the Mercury. There was truly no hope for them. Charde Houston didn’t give up, though, neither did DeWanna Bonner. Houston and Bonner combined to score 40 points. There’s not much to say about the Mercury, they tried but they couldn’t pull it out.
