Sky’s Angel Reese sets WNBA record with 10th straight double-double

CHICAGO — Kayla McBride scored 16 points, Napheesa Collier had 13 points and 11 rebounds, and the Minnesota Lynx spoiled a record-setting day from Chicago rookie Angel Reese, rallying for a 70-62 victory over the Sky on Sunday.

Reese broke a WNBA single-season record with her 10th straight double-double, finishing with 10 points and 16 rebounds. Candace Parker of the Los Angeles Sparks set the previous record in 2015.

McBride made two 3-pointers and added 5 rebounds and 5 assists for the Western Conference-leading Lynx (14-4), who were coming off a 94-88 loss at last-place Dallas that ended their seven-game winning streak.

Collier had six assists while recording her 11th double-double of the season. Alanna Smith had 11 points and 7 rebounds.

Reese had a poor shooting day, going 4-of-16 from the floor and 2-of-4 from the free-throw line. She got to 10 points on the second of two free throws with 23 seconds to play.

“She’s gonna continue to do what she does, that’s who she is, she’s always gonna come out and play hard and confident and give you everything that she has,” Sky coach Teresa Weatherspoon said. “She’s the hardest person on herself, so proud of what she’s doing and what she’ll continue to do.”

Chennedy Carter scored 15 points for Chicago. Lindsay Allen made three 3-pointers and scored 13, adding 7 assists and 6 rebounds. Marina Mabrey scored 11 on 4-of-17 shooting.

The Lynx trailed by 51-42 on a jumper by Carter with 2:58 left in the third quarter but cut the deficit to five at the end of the period on a long jumper at the buzzer by Collier.

Minnesota clamped down defensively in the fourth quarter, outscoring Chicago 18-5.

A three-point play by Courtney Williams put the Lynx up 61-59 with 3:14 to go. McBride sank four straight free throws and Minnesota maintained a two-possession lead over the final two minutes.

The Lynx held the Sky to 30.5% shooting from the floor after allowing the last-place Wings to shoot 48.7%, make 9 of 15 from beyond the arc and score the most points against them this season.

Chicago selected Reese with the seventh overall pick in the draft, a spot Minnesota traded down from.

The Sky fell to 3-7 at home.

Minnesota plays at New York on Tuesday. Chicago travels to play the Atlanta Dream on Tuesday.
