Per the Sparks' official Twitter account, Parker's triple-double was also the first of her WNBA career. She accomplished the feat with 11 points, 17 rebounds and 11 assists in an 85-73 win over the Stars.
Parker's triple-double is the first in a WNBA game since Temeka Johnson recorded one for the Seattle Storm in 2014. Sheryl Swoopes of the Houston Comets, Margo Dydek of the Utah Starzz, Lisa Leslie of the Sparks and Deanna Nolan of the Detroit Shock are the other women in the triple-double club.
Layshia Clarendon of the Atlanta Dream appeared to record a triple-double on Tuesday against the Phoenix Mercury, but a scoring correction took away two of her assists leaving her with a stat line of 15 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists.
Parker is averaging 16 points, 8.1 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game this season for the Sparks, who own the WNBA's second-best record at 16-6 after Friday's win.
