Los Angeles (4-3) dropped their first two games of the season, but they’ve gone on to win four of their last five. Their recent play has to be a sign of relief for head coach Derek Fisher, as team captain Nneka Ogwumike suffered a knee last week. Instead of trending downward, the Sparks have upped their play. The former WNBA MVP was averaging 16.4 ppg and 7.1 rpg, while shooting 58.6% from the field.
