Delisha Milton-Jones, Candace Parker, Alana Beard, Jantel Lavender and Kristi Toliver all scored in double-digits last night. You can’t ignore how well the team played. Overall, they out played the Mystics. The Sparks relied on one player, and that player was team. Yes Ogwumike scored 24 points, but she didn’t put her team on her back and carry them. Her team was right there with her.
The Mystics good for their team but it definitely wasn’t enough to beat this all-star team. Michelle Snow led her team with 15 points 7 rebounds. Noelle Quinn, Natasha Lacy, and Mo Currie combined to score 33 points. Crystal Langhorne is usually involved in every game but in this game she was off. She took 5 shots and of those only made 1. All her stats were lower than usual and you could see the Mystics missed that huge force.
