The WNBA world was stunned when the New York Liberty pulled out a 98-91 win over the Chicago Sky for Game 1 of the WNBA Playoffs.
Liberty guard Marine Johannes has been lauded for sparking a 13-0 run in the last three and a half minutes of the game, transforming a six-point deficit into a triumphant seven-point victory.
But Johannes wasn’t the only hero in the Wednesday night game. Natasha Howard and Sabrina Ionescu each saw game-high scores of 22 points, breaking the record for most Liberty points in a playoff game, per ESPN’s Jamal Collier.
The Sky entered the playoff series as clear favorites, but all bets are off in Game 2 of the New York Liberty versus the Chicago Sky.
Tipoff will be on August 20, 2022 at 12 pm CST at Wintrust Arena in Chicago, IL.

New York Liberty vs. Chicago Sky Game 2 prediction
Even though the last-minute Liberty surge makes for a compelling story, the Sky still sees home-court advantage in addition to the edge they’ve enjoyed all year as one of the WNBA’s top teams.
Still, the Liberty proved they shouldn’t be counted out entirely, and Game 2 could very well be within reach.
But the continued success of the reigning champs, and the stellar performances by players like Candace Parker, Allie Quigley and Kahleah Copper mean that Chicago could easily, and unsurprisingly, claim victory in their second game.
Prediction: Liberty 88, Sky 95
