New York Liberty point guard Sabrina Ionescu’s last second three-point game helped her team to end the six-match winning streak of Chicago Sky. With the win Liberty snapped their five-game losing streak on Saturday night.

Liberty entered the fourth quarter of the game with a 10-point lead, however they trailed by two points with just 19 seconds remaining against the defending champions Chicago Sky. New York turned to their All-Star point guard for an equalizer, who scored a much needed and-one with 9.7 seconds remaining.

After the final whistle, Sabrina ran towards the audience and shared her game winning moment with Vanessa Bryant and her daughters.

The WNBA star shared a master and apprentice relationship with the NBA legend Kobe Bryant after the Mamba, accompanied by his daughter Gianna, once attended her game, and Kobe reportedly gave advise and suggestions to Ionescu after each game.

Ionescu managed 17 points, nine assists, and eight rebounds to seal the game for Liberty. “Well they were forcing me right, so I just went right. But hats off to my teammates. They got me open and believed in me in crunch time. Really happy to have made that shot”, Sabrina Ionescu said after the game.

“That’s a big win for us to snap a five-game losing streak. Sometimes seeing a win is all you need to get a spark and win a game. We have a lot more games left. We’ll continue to get better and not stress about what seed we are,” Sabrina Ionescu added.
