When: 5 PDT.

Where: Target Center, Minneapolis.

On the air: Webcast,

Record: Sparks 4-9, Lynx 10-7.

Record vs. Lynx: 0-1.

Update: The Sparks are on a three-game losing streak and have the league's worst offense (72.46 points per game). Center Lisa Leslie, still nursing a sprained right knee, isn't on this trip, which also includes stops in Chicago and Sacramento. The Lynx have averaged 82.71 points (second in the league) despite losing Seimone Augustus, who suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee last month and is out for the season. She had been averaging 21 points per game. Sparks Coach Michael Cooper says lack of focus is still an issue. "I thought we had things worked out," he said. The Lynx, after winning three straight games through the end of June, have been inconsistent.
