New York Liberty edge Atlanta, 89-77

The New York Liberty (8-10) are starting to look like the team many had hoped to see on the floor for the 2022 WNBA Season. The latest victory for the team was a 89-77 decision over the Atlanta Dream.

New York had an impressive shooting performance going 47.1% from the field and also going 60% from the free throw line. The Liberty were able to drain seven three-pointers in the first quarter, which was huge in helping the ladies earn the victory.

There were three players who led the way for the team in scoring, as Sabrina Ionescu had a team-high 21 points on 46.7% shooting. Ionescu had a 14-point first half, while also having an impressive 55.6% shooting from deep, to go along with nine rebounds and eight assists.
