The New York Liberty have the ability to win this game comfortably, and they're coming off their best showing of the series in game 3. However, I'm going to stick with what I've been saying all series, and that's the Connecticut Sun are too good of a team to turn down in the underdog role. The Sun have the offense to hang with any team in the league, and they were arguably the best defensive team all year. At home and a must win to save their season, you should get the best effort from the Sun. Give me the points.
