The WNBA opened their 2020 season over the weekend with a number of major storylines. It started with the players dedicating the season to Breonna Taylor and the Say Her Name movement while deciding collectively to not stay on the court for the National Anthem. The opening weekend also marked the return of Sue Bird and Breanna Stewart for the Seattle Storm and the pro debut of Sabrina Ionescu for the New York Liberty.
The play ended up on ESPN’s Top 10 list on Saturday night and it wasn’t the only highlight for Sykes in her Los Angeles Sparks debut.
Sykes finished with 10 points and 3 steals in the victory. She played 19 minutes off the bench and with the Sparks having title hopes we’re excited to see how Brittney can contribute to a contender in her 4th season in the league.
Both Orange alums will be back in action on Tuesday as the Sparks take on the Chicago Sky and the Lynx battle the Storm.
