Pierson scores 25 to lead Liberty past Dream 94-88

ATLANTA (AP) Sidney Spencer hit a tying basket on her only shot of the game with 0.2 seconds left in regulation, Leilani Mitchell made a clinching 3-pointer in overtime and the New York Liberty rallied to beat the Atlanta Dream 94-88 on Sunday.

Plenette Pierson scored 25 points to lead the Liberty in the opener for both teams, a rematch of last year's Eastern Conference finals won by Atlanta in a sweep.

The Liberty took advantage of an Atlanta team missing its top player, Angel McCoughtry, who didn't dress because of a sprained left knee.

Spencer, who played just 5 minutes, sent the game to overtime after a deflected pass but a quick improvisation left her with an open look. Mitchell finished off the Dream with a 3 from the corner with 28 seconds left in overtime.
