New York Liberty vs Los Angeles Sparks: Best Picks

Brittney Sykes

Despite being 5’9, Sykes is a formidable defender. She can guard anyone full court without any problems, and once she has the ball in her hands she shoots and passes with a smoothness not every player possesses. She’s leading the Sparks’ defensive side, and loves the roles she plays for the team.

Sykes was also included in the All-Star ballot this season.

Sabrina Ionescu

Sabrina Ionescu is the Liberty’s lead scorer this season. She excels at three-point shooting and is very proficient in slashing through the defense to bank in a floater with a little finger-roll. Her speed and athleticism helps her get around the court fast enough to put a pause to defensive plays and turn them into offense.

This season, Ionescu has averaged 17.2 points, 6.2 assists and 7.2 rebounds this season. She seems to be on the way to become this season’s MVP with these stats.

Betnijah Laney

The 2021 All-Star Betnijah Laney is definitely one of the top picks for Sunday’s matchup. She excels at shooting, be it from beyond the arc or under the rim. Displaying extreme athleticism, she can weave through the defense with her layups and deploy a step-back-3 pt shot whenever required.
