CHICAGO (AP) Nneka Ogwumike and Kristi Toliver scored 18 points each to lead the Los Angeles Sparks to a 102-88 victory over the Chicago Sky on Friday night.
Candace Parker added 17 points for the Sparks (3-3), who snapped a two-game losing streak and set franchise records for field goals made (43) and assists (31).
Parker, the reigning WNBA MVP who is averaging 22.2 points per game, did not start because of a left ankle injury. She entered the game 6 minutes into the first quarter.

SHOCK 94, MERCURY 78
TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Tulsa capitalized on four players in double figures for its first win this season after five losses.

The victory ended a seven-game skid dating back to last season.
Diana Taurasi had 22 points to lead Phoenix (4-2). She worked for every point as Sims harassed the veteran guard into 5-of-12 shooting. Taurasi was a perfect 12 of 12 on free throws.
