Liberty Confirmed Lineup: Courtney Vandersloot, Sabrina Ionescu, Betnijah Laney, Breanna Stewart, Jonquel Jones

With two games left in the regular season, the Liberty are still in play for the number one seed. While they'll likely fall short based on the Aces' current standing, New York's final push starts with this matchup against a Sparks team they've already beaten twice. For Los Angeles, this is a crucial game as they limp toward the postseason. The eighth and final playoff spot will likely go to them or Chicago as both teams have the same record with two games remaining.
