The Liberty and Lynx both experienced a sudden reversal: New York has rebounded with two double-digit wins, while Minnesota appeared poised to run away with the league championship until losing their leading star to injury.
The New York starting five is hot, shooting 46-of-86 in two games, including 13-of-26 from deep. The Liberty carried Sunday’s game to the over, though it was likelier that home team Atlanta would.
Minnesota is 7-0 on the over, but needed Seattle to provide 90 points on Friday. In their first full game without Augustus, the Lynx failed to hit 80 for just the second time.
