For the second straight night, Glory Johnson led her team in scoring with 17 points.

Skylar Diggins put 11 points and more than 35 minutes on the court.  Newly re-signed Courtney Paris had 10 points coming in off the bench.

While the Shock are playing well and staying close in almost every contest, there seems to be a wall at the 40-minute mark.  Tulsa has been outscored 26-12 in the extra period of the three overtime games it has played, and made only one overtime field goal in two of those games.

Candace Parker had a double-double for the Sparks with 17 points and 13 rebounds.  Kristi Toliver put in a game high 21 points.
