Liberty vs Sparks Prediction: Recent form
The New York Liberty are yet again staring at an early exit with the club not able to afford any slip-up from here on, to stand a chance in the postseason. In the 29 games that they have taken part in, the Liberty have trounced the opposition on 11 occasions while losing the remaining battles comprehensively. That last victory against Mercury would have done a world of good for their confidence with another opportunity to control the proceedings against Sparks.
The Los Angeles Sparks are another team who struggled to get off the blocks in the early stage as they continued to play catch up for the rest of the season. They have been a commendable force at home but they are feeble and brittle when they play the away fixtures. Despite all this, they were well on course to make it to playoffs but the 3-match losing streak in recent times rubbed salt into their wounds as they fell behind Mercury in the table.

Stefanie Dolson has been a consistent performer at the Center but a better effort is expected from her. She has averaged 4.3 rebounds with a three-point conversion of 39.6.
Crystal Dangerfield was a game-changing pick as she accumulated 17 points and 5 assists. On the other hand, Rebecca Allen doesn’t have good numbers and is in desperate need of a turnaround with just 0.8 steals and 1 block per game.
Natasha Howard must continue to top the charts if the side has to get over the line in the remaining games with her precision and change of direction.
Chiney Ogwumike who played in place of Cambage didn’t raise a lot of eyebrows as she provided 7 points and 6 rebounds. Brittney Sykes has been extremely handy as the shooting guard with 3.9 assists and a 3-point percentage of 25 and has certainly sealed her place in the starting five.
On the other hand, Nneka Ogwumike who has taken it on herself to do the job was once again the best of the lot with 23 points and 4 assists.
Katie Lou Samuelson has averaged 10.2 points in addition to a field goal percentage of 38.6 and a free throw percentage of 85.4 this season.
