New York Liberty set franchise records with 107-69 win over Phoenix Mercury

August 16, 2010

With their NBA-like high scoring 107-69 win over defending champion Phoenix Mercury on Saturday night, the New York Liberty set franchise records for points in a game and consecutive victories (8). They played dominantly from start to finish, with highlights including 28 points from superstar Cappie Pondexter, a career-high 7 three-pointers from Nicole Powell, and a tenacious defense that held Phoenix to only 8 points in the final quarter and Diana Taurasi, the WNBA’s leading scorer, to a season-low 5 points in the game. New York also clinched a playoff spot and are only 1.5 games behind Eastern Conference-leading Indiana Fever, whom they’ll play tomorrow night. Photos by Avi Gerver, ¬©Madison Square Garden, L.P.
