Aug 19, 2011 - 5:28 AM Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Ebony Hoffman scored a game-high 21 points and pulled down seven rebounds to help the Los Angeles Sparks defeat the Eastern Conference-leading Fever, 75-70.

Candace Parker added 18 points, six boards and five assists for Los Angeles, which was coming off a home loss to Atlanta on Tuesday.

Erin Phillips and Tamika Catchings each netted 16 points for Indiana, which had its three-game win streak snapped. Tangela Smith chipped in 14 points and nine rebounds in defeat.
