The Indiana Fever return to the road on Tuesday to play the Los Angeles Sparks in Los Angeles, California. However, with only five victories in 27 games and a nine-game losing streak, Indiana enters Tuesday as one of the worst WNBA teams. In their most recent game, Indiana’s offense was atrocious, making only 36.4 percent of their shots and 16.7 percent from outside the arc combined while turning the ball over 20 times, which resulted in a loss.
In 27 minutes on the court, NaLyssa Smith was the only genuine bright spot for Indiana, scoring 15 points and grabbing 9 rebounds on 5 of 13 shots. Emma Cannon led the way off the bench with 14 points, while Queen Egbo scored 13 points to finish as the second starter in double figures.
On Friday, the Los Angeles Sparks play game four of a homestand at .500 and is on a three-game losing streak. Los Angeles’ last game’s offense was horrible; they only made 39.4 percent of their shots, and they turned the ball over 15 times, which contributed to their double-digit loss.
But on the bright side of things with 16 points and 8 rebounds in 34 minutes on the court, Nneka Ogwumike finished first among Los Angeles scorers. Katie Lou Samuelson and Brittney Sykes each scored 12 points, while Chiney Ogwumike contributed 14 points and 13 rebounds.
