Liberty Lighting League Up

Sabrina Ionescu’s 20-point performance propelled the New York Liberty to a 74-63 victory over the Seattle Storm on Monday night, marking the team’s first 4-0 start in 17 years. Accompanied by Breanna Stewart’s 16 points and 11 rebounds, the Liberty showcased their well-rounded abilities, reminiscent of their last 4-0 start in 2007.

Sabrina Ionescu’s 20-point performance propelled the New York Liberty to a 74-63 victory over the Seattle Storm on Monday night, marking the team’s first 4-0 start in 17 years. Accompanied by Breanna Stewart’s 16 points and 11 rebounds, the Liberty showcased their well-rounded abilities, reminiscent of their last 4-0 start in 2007.

The Liberty have been dominant so far this season. A key factor in their early success has been their stifling defense. In their victory against the Seattle Storm, they held their opponents to a season-low 63 points.

They haven’t let a team score more than 80 points against them so far, a good reason for the oddsmakers giving them 17 points in Thursday’s game.

The Liberty have some of the best WNBA players in the league, and they will look to assert their dominance on the less experienced Sky on Thursday.

Sky’s Start

The Sky have played the least amount of games of any team so far this season, only having two under their belt, both against the Dallas Wings. They split their opening season series against the Wings, losing the first game 79-87 and winning the second 83-74.

In their last game, Diamond DeShields spearheaded the Chicago Sky’s impressive performance, contributing 16 points along with five rebounds and three assists. Chicago’s dominance in the fourth quarter proved too much to overcome, outscoring Dallas 28-11 to flip an eight-point deficit.

Marina Mabrey ignited the Sky’s momentum with a crucial 3-pointer early in the final quarter, while Elizabeth Williams and Angel Reese contributed pivotal baskets, propelling Chicago to a 72-65 lead with minutes remaining.

Despite Arike Ogunbowale’s valiant efforts for Dallas, scoring nine consecutive points, Chicago maintained their composure and extended their lead. Alongside DeShields, Williams, Dana Evans, and reserve Chennedy Carter all chipped in with 12 points, while Reese added 11 points and nine rebounds.

Despite Dallas’ strong start, fueled by Ogunbowale’s 35-point performance, Chicago’s resilient display secured a split in the season-opening series.

Chicago will be looking to capitalize on this win and keep up their momentum as they travel to New York to face the undefeated Liberty on Thursday.

15.5 Points is a Lot

Our Sky vs Liberty predictions are based on the large spread given for this game. The New York Liberty are -15.5 point favorites at home against the Chicago Sky. The point total is set at 164.5. The spread is just too wide to give a Chicago team that can be in every game they play.

In their four matchups last season New York won three of the four matchups but only covered in two of the four games. Their games went under three of the four times.

So far this season the Liberty are 1-3 against the spread and the Sky are 1-1. We like the Sky to cover the +15.5 point spread, a line the Liberty have only covered in one of their four games this season.
