The New York Liberty look to remain hot after winning five of their last six games. The New York Liberty are averaging 73.4 points on 41.2 percent shooting and are allowing 70.6 points on 37.6 percent shooting. Tina Charles is averaging 17.9 points and 9.3 rebounds while Epiphanny Prince is averaging 14.7 points and 3.3 assists.

The Liberty are 7-2 SU on their home court and have won four straight.
The Sky are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-11 ATS in their last 13 games following a ATS win. The Liberty are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 14-6 ATS in their last 20 Tuesday games. The Sky are 7-0 ATS in the last 7 meetings in New York and 9-2-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings.
The Liberty have had some time off, are at home and are playing some of their best ball of the season. I love the Sky and their ability to score, but the Liberty should win this game in MSG. After all, New York has won both games this season already.
