UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) The Los Angeles Sparks have been playing a lot better over the last few weeks and their defense has been a big reason why.

Nneka Ogwumike scored 17 of her 21 points in the first half to help the Sparks beat the Connecticut Sun 87-79 on Tuesday night.

"We're getting better defensively," Los Angeles coach Brian Agler said. "At the start of the season we were one of the bottom two teams. I'm not sure where we are now, but we're better than that."
