    TULSA, Okla. -- Kristi Toliver scored 25 points, including a clutch 3-pointer with 19.7 seconds left, to help lift the Los Angeles Sparks to a 79-74 win over the Tulsa Shock on Friday night.

    The Shock (1-13) grabbed the lead late in the first period and held it until Toliver hit from long range late in the fourth.

    The Shock built a 55-37 lead in the second period but suffered through a 4½-minute scoring drought in the final quarter to drop their eighth straight.

    DeLisha Milton-Jones scored 18 points for the Sparks (6-6), Tina Thompson added 11 and Jenna O'Hea had 10.

    Andrea Riley led the Shock with 15 points, Tiffany Jackson had 14 and Kalyla Pederson 13.
