TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Candace Parker scored a season-high 30 points and Kristi Toliver added 25 as the Los Angeles Sparks won their fourth consecutive game with a 94-78 romp over the Tulsa Shock on Thursday night.
The win was the first on the road this season for Los Angeles (9-4), which had dropped its first four games away from Staples Center. It was also the Sparks' third win by 16 or more points in their last four outings.
Tulsa (3-12) dropped its fifth straight game and saw its modest two-game homecourt winning streak snapped. Rookie Skylar Diggins paced the Shock with 19 points, including 11 in the first half.
The Sparks used a 9-2 first-quarter run to jump to a 22-10 advantage at the end of the period and would not relinquish the lead. Toliver accounted for 12 of Los Angeles' first 18 points to pace the Sparks' offense early.
