Marine Johannès enchants New York with a pass from elsewhere

Marine Johannes marked the first match of the playoffs of his imprint last night. The French international contributed to New York Liberty’s surprise victory (98-91) on the Chicago Sky floor, not only by bringing 8 points, 7 assists and 2 interceptions off the bench, but also thanks to actions while simply exceptional.

His blind pass for Natasha Howard at the start of a 13-0 final run for his team is already making the rounds on social networks and it is well deserved. We may be used to these sequences that only the ASVEL player seems capable of attempting in the WNBA, but it is still a feast for the eyes.

“I was ready, even if I did not know that she was going to pass the ball to me. What she did was a Sue Bird pass”, greeted Natasha Howard after the meeting for a compliment necessarily flattering when you consider the degree of reverence that all American players have for Bird.

The former from Mondeville and Bourges had also allowed herself a little earlier in the match a 4-point action after a foul suffered on a victorious outside shot.

New York leads 1-0 against Chicago and will qualify for the rest of the playoffs if they win again against the defending champions in 48 hours.
