Playoffs round 1, night 1

Sun 65, Liberty 60.

My story: Sparks 93, Silver Stars 86.

Pictures from pre-game of the Stars-Sparks game:

Candace Parker is serious as a heart attack when she shoots before a game.

When Parker misses, she’s not happy about it.

Former WNBA great-turned-Silver-Stars-assistant-coach Vickie Johnson helps Shameka Christon with her pre-game shooting.

Becky Hammon works on her shot.
