WNBA Preseason: Los Angeles (74) – Seattle (67)

One of the most competitive preseason games so far the one between the Los Angeles Sparks, the early favourites to win it all this year, and the Seattle Storm, who again have a competitive after acquiring Crystal Langhorne and having Sue Bird back again. On this game Brian Aglerm the Seattle head coach, showed his cards with regards to the starting lineup, as he started the game with Sue Bird and Tanisha Wright at the guarde position, Camille Little and Crystal Langhorne as the interior players, and Noelle Quinn as the glue girl. This squad might be the least fashionable one on the league, but is full of veteran players and they will be competitive in every game they will play. Moreover, they have Shekinna Stricklen coming off the bench, as she did on this game with 16 points on 5/9 from the 3-point line.

As for the Sparks, they have an admirable roster where it will be even hard to cut anyone, although it looks like Alyssia Brewer, Brittaney Raven and Alicia DeVaughn are the most likely candidates to get cut. This, in part, happens because of Nikki Greene‘s good play, as she was the starter in this preseason game, and she proved to be a strong interior presence for the team with 2 steals and 2 blocks. Among the rest of team, the trio of Lindsay Harding, Nneka Ogwumike and Candace Parker was the one that decided the game in favour of the Los Angeles squad, each of the scoring double digits, with Parker grabbing 5 rebounds, dishing 3 assists and stealing 4 balls in 18 minutes.
