The New York Liberty plays the Los Angeles Sparks on Wednesday night. The Liberty blew out the Sparks by 29 points, 102-73, on Tuesday to improve to 12-18 for the season. The Sparks recorded their fourth straight loss and they are also now 12-18 and in ninth place.
The Sparks are currently tied in record-breaking ways with the Liberty and Atlanta Dream, but New York are holding the tiebreak. If the Liberty can get back on top on Wednesday, they will position themselves well for a playoff spot.

Sabrina Ionescu dropped 31 points to grab six rebounds and three steals in her team’s loss to the Sparks. She was one of the top players in the WNBA this year and continues to contribute to her breakout campaign. Watch for another strong performance in the second half of the back-to-back.

The Sparks’ defense on Tuesday had no answer for the Liberty, which has been their glaring weakness all season. Offensively, LA couldn’t get into a good scoring rhythm except for Brittney Skyes and found themselves in a hole they couldn’t dig out of. The Sparks will try to avenge their loss on Tuesday, but with the cold patch they’re in, it won’t be easy.
LA has been bad against the spread after losing this year, losing six of their last six in those situations. On the other hand, New York has covered all four of its previous four times when not playing on any rest days. LA has also lost some key rotation players, so fatigue could be a factor for the visitors in this one.
