Jul 21, 2007 - 4:29 AM PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Sidney Spencer recorded career highs of 24 points and 12 rebounds to help the Los Angeles Sparks snap a seven-game losing streak with an 87-77 victory over the Phoenix Mercury on Friday.

The Sparks jumped to an early 32-16 lead with 1:48 left in the first quarter after hitting six 3-pointers.

Phoenix tied the game late in the third quarter, but Los Angeles responded with a 12-0 run that was capped by consecutive 3-pointers by Mabika and Spencer to take a 65-53 advantage it would not relinquish.

Cappie Pondexter scored 23 points on 7-of-13 shooting and Penny Taylor added 12 for the Mercury, who have lost three of their last four games after a season-high four-game winning streak.
