In the midst of a four-game winning streak after taking down the Indiana Fever on Wednesday, the Liberty sit at 14-4 with a narrow edge over the Connecticut Sun (15-5) atop the East standings. New York also clinched a spot in this year’s Commissioner’s Cup Championship in a rematch with the Las Vegas Aces.

  • The life and memory of Nikki McCray-Penson
  • The Liberty’s wins over the Phoenix Mercury and Seattle Storm
  • Sabrina Ionescu’s continued growth on both sides of the basketball
  • Marine Johannes’ recent struggles
  • How the absence of Stefanie Dolson has impacted the play of the Liberty bench
  • How the Liberty are building chemistry and managing rotations
  • Nyara Sabally building more confidence
  • How much more upside could we see from the Aces
  • Defending Kelsey Mitchell
  • The financial importance of possibly winning the Commissioner’s Cup
