LA Sparks vs Indiana Fever Game Summary

The LA Sparks defense bared its teeth early, limiting the Indiana Fever to 15 first-quarter points. LA's balanced offense also got off to a good start to take an early nine-point advantage after the first 10 minutes.

The second period was when Caitlin Clark reminded the Sparks of her ability to punish them. A handful of errors on defense helped the point guard carve the defense with nine points.

Rickea Jackson, another highly-touted rookie inserted into the Sparks' starting lineup, showed why she deserved the spot. She had eight points and a handful of key defensive plays in the second frame.

Jackson helped her team take a 37-32 halftime lead.

The Indiana Fever blasted through in the second half and opened the third period with an 11-0 run that had the home crowd rocking. Kia Nurse and Aari McDonald's timely response stopped the bleeding.

Indiana had a 55-51 lead before it was LA's turn to have a big rally. The Sparks sprinted to the end of the third quarter with an 8-0 run to gain a 59-55 advantage.
