New York Liberty: The Eastern Contenders

Season Recap

The New York Liberty, with a 32-8 record, have shown they can be a threat, especially on the road where they have a 17-3 record. The team leans heavily on Breanna Stewart, who's averaging 23.0 PPG.

Offensive Stats

The Liberty's offense has been efficient, averaging 89.2 points per game on a 46.0% FG rate. Their playmaking, with an average of 24.1 assists per game, has been a key factor in their success.

Defensive Aspects

Defensively, the Liberty allows 82.7 points per game. They manage to average 4.5 blocks and 6.7 steals per game, showing they can be a disruptive force on defense.

Recent Performance

The Liberty have won 5 of their last 7 games, indicating a solid form coming into this matchup. However, their most recent outing saw them losing to the Aces 99-82.

 

Prediction

While the Liberty have had a commendable season, the Aces, especially at home, are a force of nature. Las Vegas's superior offense, paired with their almost impenetrable defense, gives them a significant edge in this matchup.

The Aces' recent form has been particularly dominant. The Liberty, despite their strengths, struggled in their previous encounter against the Aces. Considering all factors, including the absence of key players like Candace Parker for the Aces (which they seemed to manage just fine in their last game), Las Vegas seems poised to not only win but also cover the -5 point spread in this game.

 

Pick: Aces -5
