Angel Reese breaks double-double record, thrills fans despite Sky loss to Lynx

Angel Reese made WNBA history on Sunday afternoon even though the Chicago Sky fell to the Minnesota Lynx by the final score of 70-62.

Reese continued to be a rebounding powerhouse, grabbing 16 rebounds in just under 35 minutes of action. Although he only made 4 of 16 field goals, he made a free throw with less than a minute left in the fourth quarter to finish the game with 10 points.

She became the first player in WNBA history to record 10 consecutive double-doubles in a single season, breaking a tie with two-time MVP Candace Parker.

The former LSU star also did a commendable job on the defensive end of the court, as Lynx star Napheesa Collier finished with just 13 points and shot 38.5 percent from the field.

With his dominant performance on the boards, Reese led the league in rebounding average as well as total rebounds.

Fans were still impressed with their achievement despite the loss.

Following Sunday’s loss against Minnesota, Chicago fell to 6-11 on the season as a whole. After winning consecutive games, the Sky have lost two consecutive games. Reese will look to extend his streak and help Chicago get back to winning ways during the team’s next matchup against the Atlanta Dream.
