Viva Las Vegas: With the Shock not scheduled to take the court again for eight days, starting center Liz Cambage is hitting the road.
“I’m going to Vegas,” she said. “I’m meeting up with two other Australian girls who play in the league -- Jenna O’Hea who plays for L.A. and Rachel Jerry from Minnesota. We’re just going to have a relaxing time. We’re going to see the sights, lay by the pool and check it out.”
Movin’ on up: With Thursday’s 23-point game, Tameka Catchings passed Seattle center Lauren Jackson as the No. 4 all-time scorer in WNBA history with 6,024 points. Next on the list former Los Angeles center Lisa Leslie, who scored 6,263 during her 13-year career with the Sparks.
Season low: The team’s first loss since July 13, the Shock were held to just 12 points in the fourth quarter, tying the team’s lowest single-quarter total this season.
Injury report: Tulsa starting forward Nicole Powell played nine minutes in the first half before sitting out the rest of the game with an undisclosed illness. Reserve forward/center Courtney Paris did not play Thursday.
