As the WNBA heads into its Olympic break, the New York Liberty continue to dominate the Eastern Conference. Sunday afternoon, the Liberty pulled out a hard-fought, physical and close game against the Connecticut Sun, 83-76. Each time the Liberty built up a lead, the Sun countered, even pulling ahead a couple of times.
The WNBA debuted a new playoff format this year, with the first two rounds being single-game, one-and-done affairs. The New York Liberty had a bye to the second round, thanks to having the third-best regular season record in the league, but their postseason was short—defeated by the Phoenix Mercury 101-94 last Saturday night at Madison Square Garden.
It’s been a rough stretch for the New York Liberty since WNBA play resumed after the Olympic break. Despite being just 3-5 since Aug. 26, the Liberty held on to the third best record in the league, thanks to early season success.
