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.

"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.
