Temeka Johnson, Ivory Latta and Riquna Williams added 11, 10 and 10 respectively. University of Oklahoma standout Courtney Paris had 11 points and eight rebounds on 5-of-9 shooting from the field in her Shock debut. The Shock played only eight players as Jennifer Lacy, Scholanda Dorrell and Chante Black were all out with injuries. Lacy and Dorrell are scheduled to be out for another four-to-six weeks as they each recover from right knee injuries that may require surgery. Black is listed as day-to-day with a jaw injury. The Sparks shot 54.3 percent from the field while the Shock shot just 37.1 percent. The Shock has now failed to shoot 40 percent from the field in eight of their first 11 games this season.
