LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Kristi Toliver set a franchise record with 43 points Friday night to lead the Los Angeles Sparks to a 98-95 win over the Tulsa Shock.
The seven-year pro out of Maryland broke Lisa Leslie's mark of 41 points when she made two free throws with 9 seconds left. Nneka Ogwumike added 19 points and 10 rebounds.
Tulsa's Riquna Williams put up a contested air ball with 1 second left as the Sparks won on consecutive nights after opening the season with seven straight losses. The Shock (8-4) have dropped three straight since losing All-Star point guard Skylar Diggins with a season-ending knee injury.
Toliver, in just her third game since returning from EuroBasket 2015 where she played for the Slovak Republic, hit 15 of 24 shots, including 7 of 12 3-pointers, and made all six of her free throws. The Sparks went 11 of 21 behind the arc as the teams combined for 19 3-pointers. Toliver also matched her career high with nine assists.
Tulsa, coming off a 31-point loss in Phoenix on Thursday, used a 21-6 run and had five 3-pointers in the first quarter for a 23-14 lead. But the Sparks rallied to tie the game at 42 at the half.
In the third quarter, Toliver hit all four of her 3s and scored 19 points, surpassing 2,300 points for her career, and Los Angeles took a 73-68 lead. The Sparks were up seven when the Shock scored six straight before Toliver's 12-footer.
Williams had an offensive rebound basket with 26 seconds left to pull Tulsa within 96-95 before Toliver hit some clutch free throws.
Williams had 22 points and Karima Christmas added 20. Rookie Jordan Hooper had a career-high 14 points with four 3s, but with Toliver guarding her on the final possession she didn't get a touch.
