New York took Los Angeles to task in its most well-rounded game of the season (103-72) as everything clicked on both ends of the court, led by Sabrina Ionescu’s 31 points, six rebounds and four assists.
In that game, New York won all four quarters, getting off to a 12-point lead at the half and a 26-point lead entering the final quarter.
Ionescu led the way with her huge performance, tying her season high of 31 points for the fourth time. Natasha Howard added in 24 points and 11 rebounds with Han Xu (13 points, eight assists and seven rebounds) and Marine Johannes (12 points) coming off the bench to push their team to a win.
New York has won three of its last four games with Howard stepping up with four double-doubles in a row, averaging 19.5 points and 10.8 rebounds per game.
It is going to take an MVP-level performance, or even more, from Nneka Ogwumike to get her team over the hump and into the playoffs this season.
