Brittany Boyd led Eastern Conference-leading New York (16-7) with 22 points, and Tina Charles added 13 points and eight rebounds.

The Shock (11-14) used an 11-2 run at the start of the second half - including a 3-pointer by Christmas -to open a 20-point lead. The Liberty chipped away at the lead and got within five with 1:08 left, but Candice Wiggins missed a long jumper and then fouled Sims, who made two free throws with 26 seconds.
