L.A. Sparks Opening Night

Friday, June 6 @ The Staples Center
Fresh off a five game season opening road trip which they completed with an impressive 4-1 record, Candace Parker and the Sparks are set to make their 2008 debut in Los Angeles as they face the Phoenix Mercury at STAPLES Center tomorrow, June 6 at 7:30 pm.

The two teams tipped off the 2008 WNBA season in Phoenix with the Sparks earning a hard fought victory, led by rookie sensation Candace Parker who filled the stat sheet with 34 points, 12 rebounds, and 8 assists.

Since the opening game the two teams have seemingly gone in opposite directions, the Sparks sit near the top in the Western Conference with a 4-1 record, and the defending WNBA champion Mercury have struggled thus far, losing their first four games of the season before picking up their first win on Tuesday as they defeated the Mystics 98-93. Despite this difference in records the game should be a contested match with the Mercury looking to avenge their early season loss to the Sparks and spoil their homecoming.

Also, during halftime, Pearl drums will be presenting a drum line competition, and WNBA President Donna Orender will be in attendance and will present Candace Parker with the Rookie of the Month award following the drum line competition.
