The New York Liberty will host the red-hot Connecticut Sun tonight at MSG.
Tonight’s Liberty-Sun match-up is set to be nothing short of a grudge match. After suffering a 20-point loss on the road, New York will host Connecticut Friday evening to settle the score. Madison Square Garden will be rocking.
Connecticut, surprisingly, comes in as one of the hottest teams in the league. After a narrow 2-point loss in Washington back on May 31, the Sun have won 4-straight. They are coming off their most impressive victory, a 98-93 victory on the road against the then-undefeated Minnesota Lynx.
That victory brought Connecticut (5-5) within 1.5 games of a virtual tie for first place in the Eastern Conference.
If New York (7-4) wants to stay ahead in standings and possibly leapfrog the Washington Mystics for overall first place, they will need to bring their A-game Friday night.
Tonight’s game can be viewed on ESPN3. Tip-off is at 7:30 PM (ET).
