Update: Sparks bury Sun with 3-point barrage

The Los Angeles Sparks hit a franchise-record 15 3-pointers to hand the Connecticut Sun their second loss at home in as many games, 89-80, at Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday.

The 3-point total also marked the most Connecticut (12-10) has ever given up and accounted for half of the Sparks' (7-16) field goals. The league record is 16 3-pointers, last accomplished by Phoenix this season.

Tan White scored 13 points, and Renee Montomgery netted 14 to lead five players in double figures for the Sun.
