All regular season with 34 games, all about playoffs and end all their five games, and finally the WNBA title of the 2016 season was decided by seconds. A basket of the MVP of the season, Nneka Ogwumike gave the championship to his team, Los Angeles Sparks.

The Californian team had reached the final after being the second best of the regular season and have eliminated Chicago Sky in the semifinals. Front in the final would have the best team of the regular season and champions of last year, the Minnesota Lynx, where he plays but with less prominence this year the Spanish Anna Cruz.

The final was presented as the best match, and surely, this was because it was not decided until the fifth game. Specifically as we say until the last seconds of the fifth game. Until then, the series had discoursed like this:

los angeles sparks

Sparks 78 Lynx 76
Sparks 60 Lynx 79
Lynx 75 Sparks 92
Sparks 85 Lynx 79

Twice, the Sparks had taken the lead in the series and twice the Lynx had equaled it, thus forcing a fifth game that was to be played in Minneapolis. A fifth, the absence of three seconds, winning by one point had the Lynx, but a basket of Ogwumike would give an epic victory to players of Los Angeles, because those two points scored in extremis left the score at 77-76.

Ogmuwike would score the winning basket, but the award Finals MVP was going to take another player Candance Parker. Compliments 30, the power forward who has twice been MPV WNBA held his team in the fifth game with 28 points and 12 rebounds, even better numbers and their good averages in the playoffs for the title, which has contributed 20 points and 9 rebounds per game for his team.

For Parker, his entire career in Sparks is its first WNBA title. And is that although the Lakers already has with it three in his history, the first two came quite some time ago, in 2001 and 2002, when they had the most dominant player in those moments, Lisa Leslie.
