WNBA fight: Sparks victory tarnished by brawl, video

WNBA fight: Sparks victory tarnished by brawl, video A nasty brawl tarnished the WNBA game in Detroit last night, the Los Angeles Sparks won 84-81 against the Detroit Shock, but the fight at the end would be what people will remember. A brawl erupted less than 5 seconds before the end of the Sparks - Shock WNBA game last night, which led to the ejection of three players and Detroit's assistant coach Rick Mahorn. The brawl began when L.A.'s Candace Parker and Detroit's Cheryl Ford had to be separated, after Ford fouled Parker.

 But on the following possession Shock's Plenette Pierson tangled up with Parker, intentionally running into her and setting off the brawl. Candace Parker threw a punch at Pierson before being tackled by Detroit's Deanna Nolan. Players and coaches from both teams joined in, and Mahorn knocked Lisa Leslie to the court at one point. "To be honest, I don't recall exactly what happened. I'll have to watch the tape," Parker was quoted saying later that night. DeLisha Milton-Jones shoved and punched Mahorn after the incident with Leslie, and was ejected, along with Mahorn, Parker and Pierson. Nolan and Shannon Bobbitt received technical. You can watch the video of the WNBA fight below:
