If only the Sparks could play every WNBA game at home.

Alas, half the season is played on the road, and the Sparks must imitate their home act on the road. This past weekend was a prime example of the Jekyll and Hyde nature of the L.A. team’s personality this year.

On Friday, the Sparks (3-5) traveled to Seattle, where they staked a 16-point lead on the Storm (6-3) before losing the contest, 69-67. Two days later, both teams faced-off against each other at Staples Center, where Los Angeles relied on a 13-2 run to start the second quarter in knocking off the WNBA’s best team in the west, 82-55, in front of a crowd of 10,797.

Five Sparks were in double figures, including Betty Lennox with 14 and Vanessa Hayden with 12.

The Sparks are 3-0 at home, where they give up just 53.3 points per game. However, on the road, Los Angeles is 0-5, allowing 79.8 points per game.

The Sparks host the Mercury at Staples July 5 before heading on a seven-game road trip that begins in New York July 9, Washington, D.C. July 11 and Connecticut July 14.

All stats as of June 29.
