Shock Suffer Record-Breaking Loss

By - Kris Fletcher

Last night in Oklahoma, Candace Parker scored 16 of her 23 points in the second half for the Los Angeles Sparks, who rallied from a 15-point deficit to defeat the Tulsa Shock by a final score of 73-67.

It was the 18th consecutive loss for the Shock, a WNBA record.

The previous mark was held by the Atlanta Dream, who lost 17 straight in their inaugural season back in 2008.

"We weren't happy with the way we played in the first half," Parker said. "I won't say it was jet lag, because we played with more energy in the second half. We just didn't play very well. We need to come out with defensive intensity to match our intensity on offense."

The Shock, who are just 1-23 on the season, will try to put an end to their dismal skid tomorrow night when they take on the Minnesota Lynx.


  1. WTF is the WNBA? Lol

  2. Lol Give it a couple of more years and it will probably no longer be in existence. I'm shocked it's lasted this long really.

  3. And I'm sure all of about 55 people were on hand to witness it.
