There’s a bit of Stephen Curry in Sabrina Ionescu’s game, and that’s no accident. Growing up in Walnut Creek, she wanted to be just like Steph. There isn’t a hint of whimsy or showmanship in her grim-faced game, but the WNBA is starting to take notice of a second coming.
Ionescu will be one of the starters in Sunday’s All-Star game (10 a.m., ABC), and her all-around performances become more stunning by the day. It’s strictly routine for her to rack up 31 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists in a game, as she did for the New York Liberty in Wednesday’s triple-double against Las Vegas.
