Four teammates also hit double figure as Los Angeles (7-10) snapped a four-game losing streak.

Chicago (9-11) nearly erased a 20-point deficit behind 12 second-half points from Epiphanny Prince and 10 from Sylvia Fowles. Both finished with 16 points, while Erin Thorn scored 17 off the bench.

Tina Thompson had 14 points for Los Angeles and Jantel Lavender added 13. Kristi Toliver chipped in 12.

The Sparks used a 23-7 run in the final 6:57 of the first half to open a 51-36 lead. Thompson had two early 3-pointers, but had reduced minutes after collecting three first-quarter fouls.

Los Angeles pushed the lead to 20 in the third quarter following Toliver's two free throws. Chicago cut it to 68-66 as Thorn hit consecutive 3-pointers, but Los Angeles extended the lead before one final push trimmed it to 84-82 with 20 seconds left on Thorn's fifth 3-pointer.

The Sparks won for just the third time in 12 games and travel to Indiana on Sunday.
