WNBA Brawl Video: Candace Parker, Plenette Pierson Fight!
by Mike Baron

WNBA fight video - Candace Parker would prefer to focus on all of the good parts of the Los Angeles Sparks' 84-81 win over the Detroit Shock. Instead, it will be the last 5 seconds that everyone will remember.

Finally the WNBA gets a chance to be on the same plane as the NBA and they blow it. In last night's matchup between the Los Angeles Sparks and the Detroit Shock, LA's Candace Parker got into it with Detroit's Plenette Pierson.

Parker was one of three players ejected along with Detroit assistant coach Rick Mahorn. Mahorn knocked Lisa Leslie to the court at one point.

The fight began moments after Parker and Detroit's Cheryl Ford had to be separated after Ford fouled Parker.

On the very next possession, Parker got mixed up with Detroit's Plenette Pierson and fell to the ground. As she was getting up, Pierson intentionally ran into her, setting off the melee, reports the AP.

Parker would throw a punch at Pierson before being tackled by Detroit's Deanna Nolan.

Mahorn was also involved in the 2004 Pistons-Pacers brawl while working as a Detroit broadcaster, going into the crowd to try to pull Ron Artest away from fans.

DeLisha Milton-Jones shoved and punched Mahorn after the incident with Leslie, and was ejected, along with Mahorn, Parker and Pierson. Nolan and Shannon Bobbitt received technicals.
