During every Sparks huddle, center Lisa Leslie emphasizes one thing. "Have no regrets," she repeats. The Sparks have had little to regret lately. Their 75-63 victory over the Chicago Sky on Tuesday in front of an announced crowd of 9,615 at Staples Center was their sixth consecutive win. It was 12 days ago when the Sparks were 8-13 and it was uncertain whether they were playoff-bound. Their latest victory pushes them to a 14-13 mark and three games ahead of the San Antonio Silver Stars and Minnesota Lynx for the third playoff spot with seven games left.

The Sparks lost, but so did their most imminent competition. Even though they fell, 90-84, to the Phoenix Mercury, their playoff prospects remain unchanged. They are still in a three-way tie for third place in the Western Conference with the San Antonio Silver Stars and the Minnesota Lynx, who also lost Tuesday. The Mercury clinched second place with its victory at Staples Center in front of an announced crowd of 8,817. And now the Sparks only have two games left in the regular season to try to clinch one of the final two Western Conference playoff spots.

SAN ANTONIO -- When he became coach of the San Antonio Silver Stars and directed a team that won seven games his first year, Dan Hughes didn't have far to look for the role model to build a championship team. "My role was right outside my back door," Hughes said. "You had the Spurs sitting here. And the things they represented just reinforced in me that even when we won seven games, you know what, keep going, keep going, keep going."
