Cream Of The Crop

Sparks coach Joe Bryant couldn’t sit still much of Thursday night. He even had to be restrained once by a Los Angeles player during the fourth quarter, since the coach was teetering toward a possible second technical foul and subsequent ejection after being whistled for arguing a non-call in the third.
The meeting of the league’s two best teams didn’t go the way of the Sparks, who will need help to catch Connecticut for home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. The likelihood of getting assistance isn’t very good considering the Sun look as if they’ll never lose again, riding a franchise-record and WNBA season-high winning streak of nine games.
Regardless, Bryant still feels a repeat matchup in the championship series would make for a crowd-pleasing scenario.
“I think this would be a super finals with these two teams,” Bryant said. “I think the league would really appreciate it if Connecticut and L.A. get into the finals. We have great fan bases and special players.”
The win improved Connecticut to 10-3 against the Western Conference with one game remaining Sunday against Houston. The Sun lost just once in 14 tries against the West last regular season.
