Indiana Fever vs. New York Liberty – In-Season Stats & Betting Trends

The Liberty Looking To Bounce Back From Disappointing Loss To Indiana

The Liberty have been one of the top teams in the league all season. Following a 4-2 start, they reeled off eight straight wins before their next loss. Following that 99-93 setback against the Phoenix Mercury on June 18, New York won each of its next five games.

However, the Liberty were recently defeated by the Indiana Fever 83-78 on Saturday, bringing another impressive winning streak to a halt. In that contest, Sabrina Ionescu led the way with 22 points, four assists, and three rebounds. But her shooting numbers were not overly efficient as she was 9-of-23 from the field and 4-of-13 from beyond the arc.

Betnijah Laney-Hamilton added 20 points (8-14 FG and 4-10 3PT), four rebounds, and four assists. New York held a 62-55 advantage through three quarters of action but fell apart in the final frame. Thanks to a three-point play by Caitlin Clark and a three-pointer by Kelsey Mitchell, Indiana tied the game at 75 with 2:31 left in regulation. New York was held to just three points the rest of the way.

The Sun Looking To Push Their Winning Streak To Four Games

Meanwhile, the Sun got off to a fast start as well, starting the season with a 9-0 mark en route to producing 13 wins in their first 14 outings. Following that hot start, Connecticut dropped three of their next four contests before rebounding with three consecutive wins. This includes an 80-67 win over the Atlanta Dream on Sunday.

In that game, DeWanna Bonner paced the team’s offense with 23 points on 7-of-11 shooting from the floor. She also had four rebounds and knocked down seven of her nine attempts from 3-point  range.

Tiffany Mitchell — who is averaging 5.0 PPG — chipped in with 13 points and three rebounds off the bench. Brionna Jones added 11 points, four rebounds, and three assists. Connecticut held Atlanta to just 24 points in the first half. And while their defense slipped a bit in the second half, the Sun were able to notch their seventh win in their last 10 games.

New York beat Connecticut 82-75 when these teams faced off on June 8. With that in mind, the Sun look to even the season series when these squads clash for the second time this season.

Now that we have set the stage for this pivotal Eastern Conference matchup, let’s examine the betting trends for both teams.
