See the Sparks catch fire against the Sky
From 13 August 2013 To 13 August 2013Address
Staples Center, 800 W Olympic Blvd 343, Los Angeles, CA 90015
It may have been a disappointing year for Los Angeles' NBA teams, but first-round elimination for the Lakers and Clippers is not the end of the basketball.
Now it is the turn of the WNBA's Sparks to take to the hardcourt and they have a meeting with the Chicago Sky on August 13th.
The Sparks have a good all-rounder roster this year and will be looking to compete against a tough Sky outfit.
Like their illustrious Lakers counterparts, the Sparks are one of the biggest franchises in basketball. They were one of only three original teams in the WNBA's inaugural campaign in 1997 and were the winners of back-to-back Championships in 2001 and 2002.
Like the men's teams, they play at the Staples Center and it is easy to get to the venue from the Millennium Biltmore Hotel Los Angeles, as it is only a mile away.
