Liberty vs Sun Prediction: Can the Liberty survive the blazing Sun?

Liberty vs Sun Prediction: The Connecticut Sun will start as favorites to win their upcoming game against the New York Liberty as per the latest predictions.

The New York Liberty has a mighty challenge to avoid another defeat as they are set to face the Connecticut Sun in the next WNBA fixture at the Mohegan Sun Arena. The hopes for the playoffs seem deflated for New York after three consecutive losses. They got crushed by the Aces in the last game. Natasha Howard seemed to be the only player in the form on a disappointing night as she scored 19 points with 9 rebounds. The Liberty needs a spirited show today to give something to cheer for the fans.

The Connecticut Sun’s winning streak of 4 games came to an end with a disheartening loss against the Aces. However, they have a bright chance to bounce back strongly against Liberty in the upcoming matchup. In the last fixture, DeWanna Bonner turned out to be the leading scorer for the Sun with 19 points. She also added 7 rebounds to her name. The Sun needs a more comprehensive performance from Alyssa Thomas who seemed to have a tough night.
