New York Liberty fall to Atlanta Dream, 79-58

June 15, 2011

The New York Liberty lost to the Atlanta Dream, 79-58, last night at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The Liberty, who played their first 14 seasons at Madison Square Garden in New York City, will call the nearby Prudential Center home through 2013 while the Garden undergoes major renovation over the next three summers. The Liberty are now 2-2 after winning their first two games on the road and losing both games at the Prudential Center. The WNBA season runs from June through September, with each team playing 34 regular season games followed by playoffs. Photos ©Madison Square Garden, L.P.
