chicago sky

Chennedy Carter scored six of her game-high 26 points in the final 1:32 and Angel Reese produced 12 points and 19 rebounds to lift the Chicago Sky to an 85-77 win against the Atlanta Dream on Tuesday in College Park, Ga.

Chicago (7-11) stopped a two-game losing streak while sending the Dream (7-11) to their fifth loss in six games.

The Sky outscored the Dream 19-13 in the final quarter and overcame a three-point deficit in the last three minutes.

Reese notched a double-double for the 11th consecutive game to extend her WNBA record. The rebound total was a career high for the 22-year-old rookie.

Tina Charles had 19 points and 14 rebounds for the Dream. Allisha Gray added 14 points, and Jordin Canada and Cheyenne Parker-Tyus scored 11 apiece. Canada dished a game-high seven assists.

Dana Evans chipped in 14 points for the Sky.

The Sky grabbed a 66-64 lead on Marina Mabrey’s driving layup in the closing seconds of the third quarter but were sluggish to start the fourth. Reese swished a pair of free throws to give Chicago a 68-66 lead with 7:56 left, but the visitors didn’t get their first field goal of the quarter until Carter made a layup with 5:22 to go.

Nia Coffey drilled a 3-pointer to put the Dream ahead 75-72 with 3:07 to go. Diamond DeShields hit a trey and split a pair of free throws over the next 1:11 to put the Sky up by one.

Carter’s 12 points and a 12-7 bench scoring advantage helped boost the Sky to a 43-41 advantage at halftime.

Chicago offset an uneven start with an 8-0 run to end the first quarter, getting five points from Evans during the spurt. Atlanta recorded a 9-0 run in the second quarter.

Gray led all scorers with 14 points at the break on 6-for-8 shooting, while Charles contributed 10 points to go with seven rebounds.

Chicago evened the season series with Atlanta at one game apiece, avenging a nine-point home loss on June 8.

South Carolina coach Dawn Staley attended the game to watch three former players: Gray and Laeticia Amihere of the Dream and the Sky’s Kamilla Cardoso.

Atlanta remained without injured leading scorer Rhyne Howard (ankle) and top reserve Aerial Powers (calf).
