Talk about exciting times for the New York Liberty.

After a thrilling overtime comeback victory against the Mystics on Sunday, the Liberty stand at 9-3 on the season behind the 12-3 Connecticut Sun. Next, the team is embarking on a three-game road trip that will feature some big battles—the biggest against the 13-1 Las Vegas Aces on Thursday night, who have lived up to expectations coming off their championship win last season.
