Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Sunday, June 15, 2008

It was a tale of two halves that saw the Sparks battle back to defeat the Monarchs on the road 74-66.

The Monarchs dominated a first half in which they led by as many as 17 points. But Los Angeles woke up from their sleep walking in the second half. And Sacramento went cold, going 0-15 from the floor in the third quarter.

The Sparks frontcourt paced the Sparks, including 15 points and 9 rebounds from Candace Parker. Becky Brunson scored 16 for the Monarchs.

It's sports," Jenny Boucek said. "You know, stuff happens. We knew what we needed to do – we just did it in the first half. We had a drop off in our intensity and our aggressiveness."
