Sparks Can’t Recover From Poor Start. Result Is Loss #2.

Team Returns Home With Big Crowd Expected

The Sparks will mark their return home from their first road trip by playing in Cryto.Com Arena for the first time and also for their beloved and adoring fans. As we all know, it's been a very long time since they've been in the friendly and exciting confines of their home court, and leading the team with her solid play as the team's starting point guard, is the UCLA alum and 2 x WNBA Champion, #21 Jordin Canada. She will of course be hoping to treat all Sparks fans to a big win. In her first four games, she averaging 10.0 points per game. Tickets are available. (Photo Courtesy): Los Angeles Sparks

(East Los Angeles, CA) May 15, 2022 [From The Editor’s Desk]: The Sparks early season start of game woes continued for the second consecutive game and unfortunately ended in their second “road” loss in a row. After impressively winning their first two at Chicago and Indiana, they’ve now lost to Atlanta and now this one to the Connecticut Sun, who were playing in front of their home fans for the first time this season.

With that said, Coach Fisher and his team can point to the fact that.. #1) they’ve only played a total of (4) games; #2) the team is making adjustments with each passing game, as Coach struggles to find a consistent 5th starting player; and #3) a quick and definitive change must be seen sooner, rather than later.

The Sparks record now goes to an even (2-2) and their sights are set on returning home to Los Angeles in preparation for their Tuesday, May 17th Home opener against the Minnesota Lynx, at Arena.

Let’s take a look at the brief game player and team notes and learn some more from them.
