On Friday evening, the San Antonio Stars hosted the Los Angeles Sparks in WNBA action. The Sparks received a big performance from their WNBA All-Star Candace Parker who became one of just a handful of players in league history to record a triple-double. That helped lead Los Angeles to an 85-73 win over San Antonio. Here's the latest on Parker's achievement, as well as the game recap, and what's coming up next for these two teams.

Parker leads the way

Just recently, it appeared that the Atlanta Dream's Layshia Clarendon had become the sixth player in WNBA history to earn a triple-double. However, the league later said there was an error made in the stats, and that changed things.

On Friday night, Candace Parker seems to have added her name to the book for the sixth player to get that triple-double.

Parker had just 11 points on 4-for-10 shooting, but also pulled down 17 boards and dished out 11 assists to her teammates. That gave her the 11-17-11 stat line and put her name into the history books. Odyssey Sims led the team with 22 points on 9-for-12 shooting while reigning WNBA MVP Nneka Ogwumike had 11 points and six rebounds in a quiet night for her.

The L.A. Sparks shot at a rate of 55.2 percent for the game and limited their turnovers to just eight for the game. The Stars shot 44.8 percent and had 12 turnovers on their home court. Leading the way for San Antonio was Kayla McBride with 20 points and five rebounds.

Alex Montgomery added 15 while Isabelle Harrison had 14, and Kelsey Plum contributed 10 off the bench.

For those wondering, the five other WNBA players in history to have recorded triple-doubles are Sheryl Swoopes, Margo Dydek, Lisa Leslie, Deanna Nolan, and Temeka Johnson. Of the players, Parker had the most rebounds (17) and tied with two others on the list for most assists (11), while Leslie had the most points (29).

Dydek and Leslie each achieved their triple-doubles with 10 blocks as part of the stat line.

What's up next?

The latest Los Angeles Sparks' victory moves their overall record to 16-6 and a 6-5 road record. They're second overall in the WNBA standings, trailing the Minnesota Lynx by three games. The Sparks will take on the Dallas Wings on Sunday at 5 p.m.

Eastern Time in Los Angeles.

The San Antonio Stars are still at the bottom of the WNBA standings, now with a 3-20 record overall. The team is just 2-10 on their home court. San Antonio is on the road at the Phoenix Mercury on Sunday with game time slated for 6 p.m. Eastern Time.
