Los Angeles at Phoenix

4 units on Los Angeles +6 (-110) (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: LOSS
Just when Candace Parker was beginning to get things going again, her career faces another setback as she suffered a torn meniscus and will be sidelined once again. The Spark has grown accustomed to playing without their star player who missed most of last season, and the team gritted it out and made the playoffs. They are 1-0 with her on the sidelines, and Phoenix has already lost to LA by 14 points this season. These teams seem to play a lot of buzzer-beaters with three of the last seven decided by a single point and another by 3 points. The Spark are well rested for this one and are 5-1 ATS in their last six on three days or more rest. Phoenix is also well rested, but not getting the results as they are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 on three or more days of rest. The Spark has delivered in Phoenix at 4-1 ATS in their last five trips here. I’m playing LA in this one.
