This Tuesday night, Marine Johannès’ Liberty will have the opportunity to qualify for the semi-finals of the WNBA championship. The New Yorkers are logically motivated for this Game 2 against Washington, and they will perhaps be even more so after the dirty provocation of an adversary.
During the night from Tuesday to Wednesday, Marine Johannès’ Liberty will have the opportunity to take one more step towards the announced objective of the season: the WNBA title. After a masterful first playoff game against the Washington Mystics, during which the French rear was rather discreetNew York will be able to validate its ticket for the semi-finals with a victory at the Barclays Center.
For this, coach Sandy Brondello will undoubtedly be able to count on the awakening of MJ, but also and above all on the talent of Breanna Stewart and Sabrina Ionescu. That’s good, the latter is full of confidence, she who scored 29 points during Game 1 and allowed himself a viral attack on the Knicks and the Nets. And she risks being even more motivated by the provocation of an adversary:
The mounting tension between Mystics and Liberty!
Natasha Cloud said she’s guarding Sabrina Ionescu for 40 minutes tomorrow. Said NY was actively trying to get her to switch, and said that’s not happening. Called the Mystics’ Game 1 defense « lazy » and the tape was « humbling »
« They have a rude awakening for tomorrow. » #WNBA

Natasha Cloud says she’s going to defend Sabrina Ionescu for 40 minutes in Game 2. She called the Mystics’ defense « lazy » and said the video session was humbling. “They are going to be entitled to a nasty booster shot tomorrow. »
The Liberty, second best team in the regular season, has been warned: Washington intends to bring them back to earth with a painful booster shot. To achieve this goal, former champion Natasha Cloud has already announced that she will not let Sabrina Ionescu out of the match, which promises an intense battle on the Barclays floor. If it is undoubtedly a way for her to motivate herself, Internet users fear a violent backlash.
I dont like when folks run their mouth. Let the game speak.

My god, she’s going to get kicked out.
Natasha Cloud is courageous, she has just taken on a confident superstar who could well put 30 points on her head. And by trying to bring the Liberty back to earth, she will perhaps wake up all the other players in the squad!
