As she has been throughout her career, Candice Wiggins proved to be a dangerous 3-point shooting threat for the Liberty, and possessed the ability to catch fire on any given night and really provide New York with a different element to its offensive attack.
Wiggins finished the season ranked second on the team with 20 3-pointers, while shooting just shy of 40 percent (.392) from long distance. With that came some of the most impressive shooting displays of the season.
She knocked down all five of her 3-point attempts in a win at Chicago on June 30, a vital offensive boost in New York’s last game without Epiphanny Prince, and helped close out the Mystics in the Eastern Conference Semifinals when she went 4-for-4 from beyond-the-arc.
Throughout the 2015 season, Wiggins was the epitome of what a veteran leader on a strong team should be, always stepping up to provide whatever the Liberty needed on any given day.
After starting the first two games of the season and scoring six points at Washington, she saw her role continue to evolve as she used all of her attributes from providing a steady hand at the point in a deep and talented back court, playing tenacious defense during every possession down the court, and giving New York its much needed perimeter threat.
Wiggins really started to hit her stride once the calendar turned to August. Beginning with a 10-point performance in a win over Seattle, she hit a three in 7-of-9 games, including a season-long stretch of four games in a row, shooting 57.9 percent from three over that nine-game span.
