The New York Liberty and Dallas WIngs face off on Monday in a WNBA basketball showdown at the Barclays Center.
The New York Liberty come into this game with a 9-9 record overall which puts them in 7th place in the Eastern Conference. The Liberty has been the definition of inconsistent this season, but they have won two of their last three games. In the last game against the Washington Mystics, they were able to win by three points. The New York Liberty on the season are averaging 80.1 points per game while their defense is giving up 85.3 points per game. Betnijah Laney has been the best player for the New York Liberty averaging 19.7 points while shooting 50 percent from the field.
On the other side of this matchup is the Dallas Wings who come into this game with a 9-9 record overall which puts them in 4th place in the Western Conference. The Dallas Wings are playing pretty well coming into this game having won three of the last four games. In the last game against the Chicago Sky the offense was strong scoring 100 points and that led to the easy victory. The Dallas WIngs on the season are averaging 85.2 points per game while their defense is giving up 82.1 points per game. Arike Ogunbowale has been the best player for Dallas this season averaging 20.2 points per game while shooting 39.5 percent from the field and 38.7 percent from behind the three-point line.
I don’t expect a whole lot of defense in this game and that is going to lead to this game being a shootout. Look for this game to be a high-scoring affair that goes well over the total.
