Tuesday Jul 29, 2014 12:00am

(LOS ANGELES) - The Los Angeles Sparks finally got a win at home, and it came with their best player watching from the bench. With leading scorer and rebounder Candace Parker out with a left knee strain, Nneka Ogwumike scored 21 points, and Alana Beard had 17 to help Sparks beat the Indiana Fever 77-73 on Monday night. Ogwumike scored the final four points for the Sparks (12-14), who snapped a five-game home losing streak dating to June 24. Los Angeles entered the game a league-worst 3-9 at home, a disappointing record given it was 31-3 at Staples Center the previous two seasons. The Sparks found out just before tip-off that Parker aggravated a knee injury in warmups and wouldn't be available. Sparks coach Penny Toler said it would up to Parker to decide if she will play Tuesday at Phoenix. Beard scored the go-ahead basket at 73-72 on a jumper from the right side. Indiana had chances to tie in the final seconds, but Briann January missed twice, and Indiana (12-14) had to foul after it could not secure the rebound on Karima Christmas' intentionally missed free throw. Tamika Catchings led the Fever with 16 points. January had 12. Erlana Larkins had 10 points and 10 rebounds.
