The Los Angeles Sparks and New York Liberty play Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden.
The Los Angeles Sparks are still looking for their first win after a tough 0-6 start. The Los Angeles Sparks are averaging 65.2 points on 41.5 percent shooting and are allowing 75.5 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Jantel Lavender is averaging 15.2 points and 10.8 rebounds while Nneka Ogwumike is averaging 12.5 points and 6.5 rebounds. Temeka Johnson is dishing 6.5 assists and Farhiya Abdi is grabbing 2.2 rebounds. The Los Angeles Sparks are getting closer to a victory after losing their last two games by a combined eight points. However, the injuries continue to pile up, leaving the Sparks with a line lineup that continues to struggle on the offensive side of the ball. Kristi Toliver is questionable with personal reasons.

The New York Liberty look for a win to get a game above a .500 record. The New York Liberty are averaging 69.4 points on 40.5 percent shooting and are allowing 70.6 points on 36 percent shooting. Tina Charles is averaging 13.6 points and 8.8 rebounds while Brittany Boyd is averaging nine points and 2.9 assists. Tanisha Wright is dishing three assists and Sugar Rodgers is grabbing 3.4 rebounds. The New York Liberty continue to flex their muscle defensively, allowing 73 or less points in five of their eight games. However, you can shoot the three-ball against this team, which is why they lost to the Shock on Friday after they made 10 deep shots.
The Sparks are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Liberty are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Sparks are 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
The Sparks are getting closer to a victory and will have another shot here with the way the Liberty allow teams to shoot from deep. I like the points with the road team here.
