The New York Liberty look to keep rolling after winning five of their last seven games. The New York Liberty are averaging 74 points on 42.3 percent shooting and are allowing 72.6 points on 37.2 percent shooting. Tina Charles is averaging 16 points and 8.7 rebounds while Epiphanny Prince is averaging 13 points and 3.3 assists. Sugar Rodgers is the third double-digit scorer and Tanisha Wright is dishing 3.5 assists. The New York Liberty are coming off a Wednesday win over the Stars in which they shot 47.9 percent from the field and scored 84 points. The Liberty have scored 76 or more points in five straight games. The Liberty are 5-2 SU on their home court this season.
The Sun have played their best basketball on the road this season and have more rest than a Liberty team that just played Wednesday. I like the value of the points here.
