Player of the Week in the West for games played July 30 through August 5, Candace Parker, and the LA Sparks are looking for a road win against the New York Liberty. On Sunday in the Sparks’ 78-75 win over the Phoenix Mercury, Parker became the 20th player in WNBA history to score 5,000-career points. Chelsea Gray chipped in a season-high 24 points. The Liberty will have a chip on their shoulder after losing a fourth-quarter lead and the game to the first-place Seattle Storm on Monday.

The Sun are looking for their fifth win in a row on the road against Dallas on Wednesday, after besting the Aces on Sunday. The Sun are playing great offensively as a team with Chiney Ogwumike and Jasmine Thomas leading the way. The Dallas Wings lost a nail-biter against the Washington Mystics on Sunday after Kristi Toliver hit a jumper in the last second of the game. The Wings were missing one-half of their Liz Cambage Skylar Diggins-Smith dynamic duo, as Diggins-Smith missed a second game due a facial injury. The Wings have lost five in a row and are now 14-14 on the season and eighth in the standings.
