Nneka and LA Sparks advance in playoffs

For the third consecutive season, the LA Sparks and the Minnesota Lynx met in an elimination game in the WNBA playoffs. In the previous two seasons, the game was the championship game — last night, it was a first round game.

The Sparks defeated the Lynx 75-68 in a hard-fought game and will play the Washington Mystics in the second round (also single-elimination) on Thursday.

Nneka has been struggling with mononucleosis for much of the season, but found the strength to play for 37 minutes. She tallied 19 points, five rebounds, two steals, an assist and a block.
