The WNBA action continues this week with four games of action for Wednesday.

New York Liberty vs. Dallas Wings, 8 p.m. EST

The Liberty and the Wings are looking for their first wins of the season which both of these young teams will have to fight for. New York is looking too 2020 No. 1 draft pick Sabrina Ionescu and new team member Layshia Claredon who leads the way in scoring with 20 points per game. For Dallas they will depend on Allisha Gray who averages 19 points per game and their top 5 draft pick Satou Sabally.

Atlanta Dream vs. Las Vegas Aces, 10 p.m. EST

The Dream are looking to keep their win streak against the Aces who dropped their season opener.
