Liberty’s Victory

Jonquel Jones and the New York Liberty had their biggest win of the season on Saturday, but there was no letdown a day later when they pushed their win streak to seven. Jones finished with a season-high 29 points and eight rebounds to lead the Liberty to a 93-88 win over the Washington Mystics Sunday at the Barclays Center. The Liberty are 11-2 on the season, second in the Eastern Conference behind the 9-1 Sun. A big matchup against the defending champion Las Vegas Aces is scheduled for this weekend.
