Williams hits 4 3s, scores 15 as Sparks beat Lynx 77-68




LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Riquna Williams hit four 3-pointers and finished with 15 points to help the Los Angeles Sparks beat Minnesota 77-68 on Sunday, ruining the Lynx's chance of hosting a playoff game in the first round.

The Sparks have a first-round bye in the playoffs, which begin on Wednesday, and will host the worst remaining seed in the second round.

The Lynx (18-16), who had a five-game win streak snapped, will be the No. 7 seed because of their loss and Seattle's win over Dallas. Minnesota has lost three in a row against the Storm overall and four straight in Seattle.

Los Angeles (22-12), which won the WNBA title in 2016 and lost to Minnesota in the 2017 Finals, has won three in a row overall and 14 straight home games.

Napheesa Collier led Minnesota with 16 points and career-high tying 11 rebounds.

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz said Friday he is considering placing a 30-day hold on a metal recycling company's permit after a fire that burned for days and sent up plumes of smoke. Speaking at a forum organized by the University of Minnesota's Humphrey School of Public Affairs, Walz said he is looking at ways to hold Northern Metals responsible for pollution caused by this week's fire at its plant in Becker, in central Minnesota. Walz told the audience that he does not trust Northern Metals "to do the right thing," KMSP-TV reported.

Massive fire at Minnesota recycling plant burns for 2 days. It can last for several more.
