Liberty are getting the Aces on the end of back-to-back and the game vs. Indiana yesterday went to OT. Hopefully Wilson & Co. are tired.

And it was an OT game in which Wilson and McBride played 39 minutes.

Aja going for 30 again tonight. This would be a tragic loss for the Libs if they drop this one. They are trying to hang out with the rest of the pack this would be a bad set back .

Yes if the Liberty are who they and the fans claim to be then a title should be their focusing . Losing to vegas a 2nd to last place team does not ensure that which makes it tragic to me

You sound like you don’t like us. 😂 What do “they” and “us” claim them to be? In the season predictions I picked them higher than any Libs fan and I picked them to finish 5th.

Sugar shoots practically every time she touches the ball. Her FGA per minute are probably higher than Maya Moore right now and that’s not tongue-in-cheek.

Yeah I put them 6th.

But I also agree a gritty playoff level NY team has no business losing to Vegas on a back to back road game after going to overtime

But the glory/curse of being a NY fan we can beat anyone and lose to anyone because of our style of play.

It is cool to have our entire roster though.

I expect more help on Wilson in second half.

It's Charles and no one else for New York. Someone else needs to step up in the second half.

We got very little penetration from our guards in the first half. That has to be better in the second half. I’d say we broke down the Vegas D with penetration no more than 3 times. 33 points of which Tina had 17. With several world class step back jumpers. If we get penetration from the guards and force their D to help and recover we should win the game. Considering the back to back for Vegas. But that penetration needs to happen.

Vegas getting some breathing room on the Libs right now. NY needs another scorer this group just cant totally rely on Tina to get them to the promise land. They will be wishing upon a star forever in that case .

Wilson, McBride, and Plum aren't playing well and the LV bench hasn't contributed much either.

The officiating has been horrific in this game but that’s not why we’re shooting 14% from 3.

This is worse than that game we lost to Chicago 66-44 or something like that in 2015. I don’t usually get too down over one game but there’s literally no positives in this game at all. Subs coming in and out every two minutes. I get you’re trying to find what works but having so many players makes role definition difficult.

well like i said before, Charles can't do it all on her own, especially when you have washed-up players like Vaughn/Coleman around you. you gonna have games like this. and to be honest i'm not even mad anymore. it is what it is.

Kia Nurse has officially hit that Rookie Wall, which is gonna happen for rookies when they get into this league. not worried about her she will be fine and solid for us

Considering I’ve known two people who died unexpectedly less than a week after I last saw them, no.

Despite being at full strength, this was our worst game of the season. Our D was a non-factor. We somehow shot 43% and the refs weren't on our side, but our intierer D needs to be better. Rebounding wise we were equal, but we're not going to win many games with Stokes & Vaughn as our centers.

Oh, and the Liberty did break a league record tonight. Lowest announced attendance, 1,419.

What would life be without those people who get such joy out of sticking it to other people? Especially when it's anonymous so there's absolutely no social cost to being that way.

Sadly, I'm not shocked by what happened tonight. I haven't been as optimistic as some other Liberty fans. The team will be better once Prince and Stokes have had some games to readjust. The team will be better once Katie Smith has had more experience as a head coach. But I don't view this as a strong squad. Finishing 5th or 6th seems possible, but so does not making the playoffs.

I’m not shocked at losing. I am however, stunned at the sheer implosion. Lots of players played 18-20 minutes. I don’t think people have clearly defined roles right now and in basketball that’s huge. And every game new players and whatnot.

We are running out of time though.

I was shocked at the Liberty's play. LV is without 2 key players, Wilson had a terrible game, and McBride didn't get going until the second half. Big Bill doesn't have this team completely worked out either, as evidenced by starting Plum over Allen, and not giving Hamby enough minutes earlier in the game. Plus the OT game last night. I expected more from NY.

Agreed on all counts.

Another daunting situation is how we have 8 games in 14 days starting 6/22. This has been by far the easiest part of the schedule and we’re 3-5 and trending down. This is potentially where our depth can help. Hopefully we’ll have set rotations by then. And Stokes for bigger minutes. We were much better defensively with her tonight. Ugh. We’ll see. I don’t usually take one game as a be-all end-all. Tonight, however was impossible to ignore.

I know this is a little ironic but all game I was like, we have too many players, especially on the perimeter, just leave some players in and let them work it out.

I was just watching the re-show game on MSG+ and I will say this Laimbeer sure knew how to shut down Charles even though she scored a bunch of points but she was pretty much taken out of the gam after the 1st quarter. Also no fatigue for the Aces, most of them are pretty young so last night's win seemed to energize them. NY on the other hand looked a little tired and confused once Charles was taken out of the game.
