Sky look to even series with Sparks

Los Angeles' front-line of star players and 12 days of rest to regain the stride the Sparks lost during the final 10 games of the regular season proved too much for the Chicago Sky to overcome in Game 1 of the WNBA semifinals.

But the Sky have not lost hope and take a measure of confidence into Game 2 of the best-of-five series Friday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Candace Parker, the 2008 and 2013 league MVP, and Nneka Ogwumike, this year's MVP, combined for 57 points and 19 rebounds in the Sparks' 95-75 victory in Game 1. Nineteen of Parker's 30 points came in the first half when Chicago center Imani Boyette was on the bench with foul trouble.
