NEW YORK– In a game that was close to the finish led by Skylar Diggins-Smith 19 points, the Dallas Wings fell to the New York Liberty 93-89 at Madison Square Garden.
After being down by as much as nine in the fourth, Dallas came back to pull within two, 89-87 when Kaela Davis hit a floating jump shot and got the foul, sealing the 3-point play and closing the Liberty’s lead by a basket.
At the half, the Wings found themselves down by five, and came back strong in the second half, with Theresa Plaisance carrying the team scoring 11 points. It was the most points scored by the forward this season in the latter part of the game. Plaisance ended the night with 18, a new season high.
