After chosing to sit the first half of the season to rest her body from playing basketball year-round, Candace Parker put on a show near her hometown of Naperville, IL.

In just her second game back this season, Parker scored 31 points with 9 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the L.A. Sparks to a 88-77 win over the Chicago Sky on Friday.

Despite going 3-12 before the All-Star break, the Sparks are now just 1.5 games out of the playoff race.

Elena Delle Donne had 21 points and 5 boards for the Sky.
