New York at San Antonio

4 units on San Antonio -5 (-105) (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: LOSS
The San Antonio Silver Stars have emerged as the top team in the WNBA in the early going. This is a team with an offense scoring on the level of Phoenix, but defending about 7 points per game better. They are facing a hot New York club, but one problem the Liberty has had is defending as they rank second to last in FG percentage defense. They also have a motivating factor at work here as they are off a loss in their last game on the road to this same New York team, so their "A" game is likely here. Their only loss at home was against Phoenix, the only team to this point that can trade baskets with them on this court. New York has not proven that they can defend on the road. In their six road games, all six teams scored at least 82 points or more. Play on San Antonio in this one.
