Playoff tickets for the second round game at the Garden on Sept. 10th are now available through the Liberty website or, I suspect, through Ticketmaster.

The September 17th game, if the Libs make it there, will be played at Westchester County Center. It's a 5000 seat arena where the Westchester Knicks play. Anybody ever been there? Comments?

It's in White Plains. I think I was there decades ago. I remember nothing. Metro North runs from Grand Central to White Plains. I don't know if the Westchester County Center is within walking distance of the Metro North station. Perhaps someone else does.

Many trains from Grand Central to White Plains take about 35 minutes. Some take 50 to 60 minutes. It depends on whether they're making lots of local stops.

Carolyn Swords is in the history books! Sue Bird broke the WNBA's career record for assists tonight with a looping backdoor pass to Swords for an uncontested layup.

What a wonderful achievement by the great Sue Bird.

Well. I kinda can't believe it. I figured 4th could happen if certain things fell into place with NY's schedule advantage the past month over DC. However, I didn't expect to be in third on September 1st. If that holds up, several interesting scenarios present themselves.

Sunday now has quite a bit of meaning. Minnesota and LA will still be playing for 1/2 assuming LA holds a huge lead over Atlanta. This in turn means Washington and CT will be up against teams playing for something. If Phoenix beats Atlanta, which they probably will, they could pass DC for the 5 spot. They would if D.C. loses. Dallas is locked in 7th now, which is good for NY because Dallas will probably not be playing its main players 30+ minutes on Sunday.

In a scenario where it's:

3) NY
4) CT
5) PHX
6) DC
7) DAL
Cool SEA

That's looking like the best possible scenario for NY. They'd get the lowest seed to advance. Seattle on a good day could certainly beat us, but it'd beat trying to match up to Phoenix. And any way you slice it, you'd generally want the lowest seed possible to match to, which is what we are now in position to do.

Looking at the last games, I'm guessing and say Washington & Connecticut lose. Liberty end up the #3 seed. The first round will be:

#8 Seattle @ #5 Phoenix
#7 Dallas @ #6 Washington

Phoenix should beat Seattle. Which will give the Liberty the Washington/Dallas winner. I wouldn't take either team for granted, but I'd rather face either one of them than Seattle.

FYI, Liberty playoff game on September 10 is at 5pm. Though Ticketmaster hasn't updated the game to include the time yet.

more importantly...Libs avoid phx with a win tomorrow...I believe BELIEVE (have to permutate) that Dallas is locked into 7 cannot get home court...which means they have actually less to play for but who knows...rest important too we'll see what we do

Phoenix owns tiebreaker over Dallas. Dallas is locked in 7th.

Is there anyone anywhere who thought that the 12-12 Liberty would run the table and finish 22-12?

I thought some Liberty fans here were way too optimistic a few weeks ago when they spoke of finishing with the #4 seed. I saw no way New York could finish 4th. And they didn't. Smile I'm stunned. What a great job by Bill Laimbeer, the coaching staff, and the players to win these 10 games. Yeh, they weren't all pretty, including today over Dallas. Doesn't bother me a bit.

But I hope, I so hope, that the Liberty don't have to try to win playoff games despite Sugar Rodgers shooting 0-7.

I surely didn't see them at 22-12. I was hoping they'd get the #5 seed and finish 18-14. That CON/LA/MIN streak was the biggest surprise. Charles was a beast these past 10 games. Their defense was outstanding. L. Allen was critical in these wins, too. Without her, we'd have Prince or Zellous running PG. my only concern during this is Sugar. Her shot just isn't there and it's concerning going into the playoffs. Very happy to get the #3 and will be eagerly awaiting the game at MSG next Sunday. I'm hoping we don't face Phoenix.

There's been a lot of talk as to who most Libs fans want to play in our first round matchup but I'm curious to hear if most fans prefer to play LA or Minnesota in the semi-finals?

At this point my mind is almost exclusively on Sunday. If we win, each team presents unique obstacles. Right now I just want to get there. We've come up a game short of a best of 5 each of the last two years.

Minnesota just because of their age. I think the Liberty will be able to run better vs. the Lynx. But it appears both will win tonight, so we'd end up facing LA in the semis.

At least it looks like Phoenix will win and Mystics will lose tonight. So we'll avoid the Mercury on Sunday.

I've already been criticized for saying this, but I'll say it again. I'm glad that the Liberty won't have to face Phoenix in a do-or-die game next Sunday. Could Washington beat us? Yes. Could Dallas beat us? Yes. (They came within an inch of doing so today.) Could Seattle beat us? Yes. But of the four options, a do-or-die game vs. Phoenix is the one I liked the least.

Wow the 3 seed. When we were 12-12 I was predicting 18-16 with the 6 seed.

I still hate that a 3 seed who ended the season on a 10 game winning streak can have their playoffs end in 40 minutes with a bad night but it is what it is.

TBH For anyone to win the championship who isn't the 1 or 2 seed they pretty much have to beat both LA and Minn barring a miracle upset so it didn't matter to me who we faced. I think we match up slightly better with Minn but I think beating wither 3 out of 5 time will be a challenge.

I'm glad we did so well, but kind of wish we weren't going to be drafting at #10 next year. I can see the players I like the most getting snatched up 6-9. 5. Sea Russell/Turner 6. Dal Russell/Turner 7. PX Billings 8. Was Nared 9. Conn Nurse 10. NY (I'm still rooting for Canada if all my other favs are off the board, but guessing it will be Vivians, Atkins or S. Thomas) come on early entries.

Still very happy with how the season played out, LETS GO LIBERTY!

you're not the only one Spoon, im kinda bummed about it as well but i love my team and i want to see them doing well. especailly a player like Charles who deserve it, i want her to win a championship so bad but i don't know if we have enuff to do it, i hope im wrong

i think Nared and Nurse will still be on the board at 10th pick, and you never know if Bill really likes someone they will try and trade to move up

I have to assume Wright is retired from playing. I just can't see Laimbeer keeping a roster spot open for her next season.

Tanisha Wright had a terrific WNBA career. It's sad to realize that she'll never play again for the Liberty, but I've assumed that ever since the news that she wouldn't be on the team this season. Wright should be an outstanding coach and I hope one day she'll be the coach of the Liberty.

Leilani Mitchell tonight against Seattle: 31 minutes, 4 for 9 on field goals, 3 for 6 on 3-pointers (one of them a crucial shot right near the end), four rebounds, 3 assists, 17 points, and a plus/minus of +15 (best on the team).

Look on the bright side. You may not have FLB, but at least NY is still working on the 2017 thread and not the 2018 thread.
