The New York Liberty and Atlanta Dream meet Friday in WNBA action at the Gateway Center. The New York Liberty look for a win after winning 5 of their last 8 games. The Atlanta Dream need a win after losing 6 of their last 8 games.

The New York Liberty are averaging 79.1 points on 42.6 percent shooting and allowing 82.5 points on 42.1 percent shooting. Sabrina Ionescu is averaging 17.5 points and 6.4 assists, while Natasha Howard is averaging 15.3 points and 7.3 rebounds. Betnijah Laney is the third double-digit scorer and Marine Johannes is grabbing 1.8 rebounds. The New York Liberty are shooting 34.4 percent from beyond the arc and 81.8 percent from the free throw line. The New York Liberty are allowing 33.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.4 rebounds per game.

The Atlanta Dream are averaging 78.3 points on 42.1 percent shooting and allowing 80.9 points on 42.9 percent shooting. Tiffany Hayes is averaging 16.2 points and 3.6 rebounds, while Rhyne Howard is averaging 16.1 points and 2.7 assists. Cheyenne Parker is the third double-digit scorer and Aari McDonald is dishing 2.5 assists. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc and 77.5 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 33.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.6 rebounds per game.

The Liberty are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. The Dream are 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 7-3 in Liberty last 10 overall. The over is 4-1 in Dream last 5 home games. The under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Atlanta.

This is damn near a playoff game with both teams fighting for that eighth seed, so this is a spot where I'd usually give the edge to the home team. However, the Dream have been playing poorly these last few days and their offense is real hit or miss. The New York Liberty have quietly played decent ball recently, and Sabrina Ionescu has really put this club on her back. There's no doubt the Liberty are in better form right now. I have to side with New York and the small number.
