Candace Parker Celebrated a Nneka Ogwumike Bucket by Giving Her a Bloody Eye
Towards the end of the first overtime in Sunday's WNBA game between the Los Angeles Sparks and Tulsa Shock, Sparks forward Nneka Ogwumike had a pretty eventful 20 seconds. With 1:03 remaining, she converted a lay-up to put LA up 73-72. Then she intercepted a pass, dished the ball off, and ran the court for a lay-up. In the process she drew contact from Shock guard Riquna Williams—and then, much harder contact from teammate Candace Parker.
After the game, Ogwumike—who scored three buckets in double-OT to help the Sparks win 90-88—took Parker's botched celebration in stride:
