SPARKS TONIGHT at Seattle, 7

Site -- KeyArena.

Radio -- KPLS (830).

Records -- Sparks 3-0, Storm 0-2.

Record vs. Storm (2002) -- 1-2.


Update -- Until this year, the Sparks had never begun a season with four consecutive road games. Which means the Sparks have never opened a season with four consecutive road wins -- something they hope to achieve tonight. Seattle started 0-3 in 2000, its first WNBA season. An 0-3 start now, after a playoff appearance last year, will have Storm watchers griping about Anne Donovan, who replaced the popular Lin Dunn as coach. One key Seattle deficiency so far has been rebounding. In the losses to Houston and San Antonio, the Storm was collectively outrebounded, 66-50.
