After a rough five-game losing streak, the Liberty (4-10) secured a win over the Atlanta Dream on June 22nd by a final score of 85-78. The Dream, who currently sit in first place in the Eastern Conference, were unable to take back-to-back wins against New York.

The Liberty continued to slide on Tuesday, dropping their third straight game 87-75 to the San Antonio Stars. It was the tale of two halves for New York, with the score 47-46 San Antonio after the first two quarters, and a scoring barrage in the 3rd by San Antonio, who outscored the Liberty 25-10 by the Stars. The Liberty played a strong fourth quarter but it was too little too late. Poor defense and turnovers were the story of the game as the New York gave up 87 points, tying a season high.

If you’re a follower of the Liberty, the upcoming Olympic break will be a bittersweet one for you. You’ll be bored without games to watch (or maybe watching them isn’t always an enjoyable experience –that's up to you7), but happy that the team can return to full strength.

After a 77-59 home win against Seattle on Sunday, the Liberty are within shouting distance in the Eastern Conference. They're 5 games out at 5-9, and have a chance to improve even further, playing the 2nd place Chicago Sky at 8:30. The team will be without Plenette Pierson for another game, and without veteran Kelly Miller. She was released earlier this week and replaced with Katelan Redmon, who was drafted by New York this year, then cut on May 27th.

Liberty Report 6/25 - Nothing’s Going Right

by Kenny Ducey

It’s one bad break after another for the Liberty. After seemingly revitalizing their season and bringing their record up to 3-5, the team now stands 4-9 after a 1-4 stretch that saw them fall to the Atlanta Dream twice. The most recent of those meetings was Sunday night in front of over 6,700 fans, including Knicks SG J.R. Smith and legend Walt Frazier. While the turnout was great, it might not continue to be that way after the performance they turned in.
