So how close has this rivalry between L.A. and Seattle been through the years? The two teams have met 32 times each team has won 16! Talk about a rubber game tonight! L.A. will be really hungry tonight not only to exact revenge on the Storm for the two-point Seattle win on Friday but also because they know they cannot fall much further back in the West. With Lisa Leslie and Candace Parker out at least five or six more games, they can’t afford to be 2-10 or 3-9 when they get back. That could be too deep a hole to dig out of. I was reading the media notes a few minutes ago and Sparks co-owner Kathy Goodman had an interesting quote as she wrote about her experience in Seattle on Friday night, saying, “I just KNOW we are going to kill them at Staples Center on Sunday night!” I love this rivalry.
