Team Review: New York Liberty
The New York Liberty have been dominant this season with a 14-4 record, placing them 8-3 in the Eastern Conference. They have been particularly strong at home, winning 7 out of their 9 home games. The Liberty's offense has been led by Breanna Stewart, who averages an impressive 23.1 points, 9.8 rebounds, 4.1 assists, and 1.7 steals per game. Stewart's all-around skills make her a formidable force on the court.
Sabrina Ionescu has been a key contributor for the Liberty, averaging 13.0 points over the last 10 games. Her ability to score and distribute the ball adds depth to the team's offense. With a solid supporting cast, the Liberty have been a force to be reckoned with in the league.
As of now, there are no reported injuries for the Liberty. However, the Wings will be without Lou Lopez Senechal (knee) and Diamond DeShields (knee). These absences may have an impact on the Wings' depth and rotation.
Based on the analysis of both teams, recent performance, and the current spread of +8 points, the prediction is that the Dallas Wings will cover the spread. Although the New York Liberty have been dominant this season, the Wings have shown resilience and determination in their recent games.
Notably, the Wings have won their last two road games, demonstrating their ability to keep games close and compete against strong opponents. With Satou Sabally and Arike Ogunbowale leading the offensive charge, the Wings have the scoring power to match the Liberty.
While the Liberty may ultimately win the game, expect the Wings to keep it within the +8 points spread. Their recent road success and ability to compete against tough teams make them a strong candidate to cover the spread.
