The New York Liberty look for a win after losing their season opener to the Seattle Storm. The New York Liberty are averaging 71 points on 34.8 percent shooting and allowing 87 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Layshia Clarendon is averaging 20 points and two rebounds while Sabrina Ionescu is averaging 12 points and four assists. Amanda Zahui B. is the third double-digit scorer and Leaonna Odom is grabbing three rebounds. The New York Liberty are shooting 21.4 percent from beyond the arc and 86.4 percent from the free throw line. The New York Liberty are allowing 30.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37 rebounds per game.
The Dallas Wings also need a victory here after losing their season opener to the Atlanta Dream. The Dallas Wings are averaging 95 points on 43.6 percent shooting and allowing 105 points on 54.8 percent shooting. Allisha Gray is averaging 19 points and three rebounds while Arike Ogunbowale is averaging 19 points and three assists. Isabelle Harrison is the third double-digit scorer and Tyasha Harris is dishing four assists. The Dallas Wings are shooting 46.4 percent from beyond the arc and 70 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Wings are allowing 41.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 29 rebounds per game.
The Liberty are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Dallas and 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 3-1-1 in the last 5 meetings in Dallas and 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings.
Neither of these teams looked great in their season opener, but it's safe to say we kind of expected what we saw from a young New York Liberty against a powerhouse like the Storm. The Dallas Wings played an uptempo game but didn't give a lick of effort on the defensive end. These are two teams still trying to figure things out and it's probably best to side with the free buckets in this one. It feels like this will be a back and forth game that could go either way.
