Leslie became the 1st player to dunk in a WNBA game. 

The dunk came after a breakaway in the 1st half of the Los Angeles Sparks’ 82-73 defeat against the Miami Sol. Leslie received an outlet pass from Latasha Byears, took two dribbles and dunked with one hand with 4:44 remaining before halftime. She smiled broadly and spread her arms wide as she raced back down the court and celebrated with her teammates.

8 days earlier, on July 22, Leslie became the 1st player in league history to score 3,000 points.
