The Los Angeles Sparks are playing for their playoff lives and need to win out to have any chance of sneaking in.

The Connecticut Sun continue to play their best ball of the season, and they still have a shot at a top-two seed. The Sun also just beat the Sparks by 26 points on the road on Tuesday. Not sure what's going to change here. Give me the Sun and whatever the number is.
