WNBA Preseason: New York (58) – Atlanta (63)

The New York Liberty are not having a good preseason, and they showed it again by having another horrible shooting night, and by falling to the Atlanta Dream by 5 points. The Liberty had only two players having a rather good game: veteran forward DeLisha Milton-Jones (11 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks), who doesn’t seem to get old, not at least on her basketball skills; and rookie guard Chucky Jeffery, who went on for 12 points and 6 rebounds off the bench, giving the Liberty some smile on the preseason.

For the Atlanta Dream this was their first preseason game, and they seemed to still be figuring out which players can be more valuable to the team and which not. The team, who was missing superstars Angel McCoughtry and Sancho Lyttle, were led by Tiffany Hayes and Erika de Souza, who have actually been playing together this offseason in Brazil. They were on 9/30 from the field, but at least they were the most aggresive players on the court and showed some leadership to the newest teammates. Among those new players for Atlanta was Louisville superstar Shoni Schimmel, who did not have a good start to the game, but finally could make her shots and went for 8 points off the bench. Everyone should have a look at this player, because she can become one of the biggest game-changers in the league.
