The Los Angeles Sparks look like a team that's falling apart, given their recent efforts and the loss of Liz Cambage. The Sparks continuing to lose would surprise nobody. However, let's not act like the Minnesota Lynx are lighting the world on fire in their own right and their defense continues to be hit or miss. Also, the Sparks are still holding onto that eighth playoff seed, so there's motivation here to get the job done. I have to believe the Sparks can get the job done at home. Give me the free bucket.
