Allisha Gray’s block sends Dallas to the playoffs


A game-sealing block proved to be enough to send the Dallas Wings to the playoffs.

Allisha Gray came up clutch for the Wings, denying Sabrina Ionescu to defeat the New York Liberty 77-76 on Saturday night.

Marina Mabrey led Dallas in points with 21, adding eight rebounds and six assists. Gray, making the game-winning defensive stop, also added 13 points and 11 rebounds to Dallas’s win.

The Wings now sit in seventh, while the Liberty fall a half-game behind the Washington Mystics for the last playoff spot.

Next up: New York will take on the Connecticut Sun on Wednesday. Dallas will travel to Las Vegas to face off against the Aces on Monday.
