wnba ball view

Rookie Angel Reese tied a WNBA record with her 12th consecutive double-double and Chennedy Carter scored a season-high 33 points in the Chicago Sky’s 88-84 road win Friday against the Seattle Storm.

Reese had 27 points and 10 rebounds despite being limited by foul trouble. While setting a career-high scoring mark, Reese tied Candace Parker’s WNBA record for consecutive double-doubles.

Carter, who finished 15-for-24 shooting from the field, came up two points shy of her career high of 35, set in her rookie season of 2020.

Chicago (8-11) picked up its second consecutive win and evened the season series at 1-1.

Seattle had won four in a row overall and eight straight at home, but star Jewell Loyd had just 13 points on 5-for-14 shooting from the field. Jordan Horston led the Storm with 20 points on 8-for-11 shooting from the field and added six rebounds. She was joined in double figures by Nneka Ogwumike, who scored 16.

Skylar Diggins-Smith added 12 points and nine assists and Ezi Magbegor approached a triple-double with 13 points, eight rebounds and eight blocks. The Storm shot just 3-for-19 (15.8 percent) from 3-point range.

Seattle (13-7) grabbed an eight-point lead in the first half and held a 42-40 advantage at halftime. But the Sky rode a 30-point third quarter to a 70-64 lead.

Carter had 11 points in the third as Chicago connected on 14 of 22 shots (63.6 percent) from the floor during the period. Rookie Kamilla Cardoso added six points and four rebounds in the quarter as Reese was limited to three minutes after picking up her fourth foul.

Seattle trimmed Chicago’s lead to 79-75 on a Loyd layup with 4:07 to play. The Sky answered with five straight points from Carter. The Storm countered with a 7-0 run to pull within 84-82 on a Magbegor lay-in with 20.9 seconds to play. The teams traded free throws the rest of the way.

The teams will meet again in Seattle on Sunday.
