The Los Angeles Sparks are going nowhere fast, and their recent loss to the Dallas Wings was the final nail in the coffin. After getting off to a ridiculous start in the first quarter, they went ice-cold the rest of the game and somehow lost late. The Sparks season is all but over given their recent efforts. The Atlanta Dream have their issues as well, but they're at least still in a playoff spot at the moment and have more motivation to get the job done. Hard to feel good about either side, but the Dream have more going for them here, especially at home. I'll lay the buckets.
