The Sparks and Silver Stars play each other Tuesday, in Los Angeles. After that, each team has two more games. LA would have to win all three games to claim that fourth spot. It’s possible, but San Antonio has the easier schedule this week.

Sparks game caller Larry Burnett says LA has a secret weapon: assistant coach Sandy Brondello, who used to coach for San Antonio.

Playoff Primer, y’all.
