The New York Liberty and Atlanta Dream meet Friday in WNBA action at the IMG Academy.
The New York Liberty look for a win after a quick 0-2 start to the season. The New York Liberty are averaging 75.5 points on 38.8 percent shooting and allowing 90 points on 47 percent shooting. Sabrina Ionescu is averaging 22.5 points and 5.5 assists while Layshia Clarendon is averaging 15.5 points and three rebounds. Amanda Zahui B. is grabbing 9.5 rebounds and Kiah Stokes is dishing 1.5 assists. The New York Liberty are shooting 28.3 percent from beyond the arc and 82.4 percent from the free throw line. The New York Liberty are allowing 37 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40.5 rebounds per game.
The Atlanta Dream look for a win to get a game above a .500 record. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 87.5 points on 47 percent shooting and allowing 97.5 points on 48.6 percent shooting. Monique Billings is averaging 17.5 points and 10 rebounds while Elizabeth Williams is averaging 16.5 points and one assist. Chennedy Carter is the third double-digit scorer and Betnijah Laney is grabbing three rebounds. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 26.7 percent from beyond the arc and 81.3 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 51.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 29.5 rebounds per game.
The Liberty are 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games, 4-16-1 ATS in their last 21 games as an underdog and 7-20-1 ATS in their last 28 games overall. The Dream are 43-21-1 ATS in their last 65 games playing on 1 days rest and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite. The over is 7-2-1 in Liberty last 10 overall. The under is 4-1 in Dream last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Atlanta.
The New York Liberty haven't shown us much defensively and the offense isn't shooting a great percentage despite solid games from Ionescu. The Atlanta Dream have been much better through two games at both ends of the floor and have more scoring depth up to this point. I have to lay the reasonable chalk with the Dream here.
