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.
Even though the New York Liberty has locked in third place in the WNBA heading into the playoffs, the team is playing with full-on intensity, despite the fact several players are currently on the injured list.
