Sparks secure 1st victory for interim coach Fred Williams


LOS ANGELES (AP) — Nneka Ogwumike scored 21 points, Katie Lou Samuelson added 13 points and the Los Angeles Sparks beat the Washington Mystics 84-82 for interim coach Fred Williams’ first victory. Los Angeles led 77-61 before Washington started a comeback. Natasha Cloud made back-to-back 3-pointers and she found Ariel Atkins in the corner for a four-point play. During the timeout between Atkins’ 3-pointer and free throw, the officials reviewed a Liz Cambage basket and ruled it came after the buzzer to reduce Los Angeles’ lead to 77-71. Ogwumike was fouled before making two free throws with 10.2 seconds left to give Los Angeles a three-point lead.
