FILLING THE BOX SCORE
Few things in life live up to the hype. It is why I’m hesitant to travel the world and see the sights. Well, that and the money thing…but I digress. Four games into her professional career and Candace Parker is already dwarfing the hype she had coming out of Tennessee. After notching the WNBA’s first ever five-by-five on Thursday, Parker racked up her third double-double of the season during the Sparks’ 70-59 win in Washington. She finished the afternoon with 15 points and 11 rebounds to go along with six assists and four blocks. It is only a matter of time until she starts rolling up the triple-doubles.
