As the ball falls

Today’s preseason action:

The Sparks downed the Dream, 88-80.

Candace Parker had 22 points for Los Angeles – a league preseason tie for the record – and she made it look easy. Too bad she’s not on the Olympic team.

Team news:

Nine of 11 Lynx roster spots appear to be set.

The Storm will wrap up their preseason slate without a graduating Breanna Stewart.

Player news:

Morgan Tuck is getting plenty of guidance from Sun veterans.

Bria Holmes is already making an impact with the Dream.
