The Chicago Sky got here up brief on opening night time in opposition to the Dallas Wings, however a robust second half from first-round draft choose Angel Reese pointed to the brilliant future that will lay forward.

The Wings pulled away down the stretch and gained 87-79 at School Park Heart in Arlington, Texas. Chicago’s lack of continuity turned a much bigger and greater drawback because the night time unfolded.

Head coach Teresa Weatherspoon is more likely to take some positives away from Reese’s efficiency, although, particularly when contemplating how the rookie ahead began the competition. By way of the primary half, Reese had one level, one rebound and one help. She completed with 12 factors, seven boards, one dime and one steal.

Angel Reese completed her WNBA debut with 12 factors, 7 rebounds, 1 steal, and 1 help.

She made an enormous assertion tonight that she was made for the W.

Caitlin Clark obtained her welcome to the WNBA on Tuesday night time as she turned the ball over 10 instances and shot 5-of-15 from the ground within the Indiana Fever’s 92-71 loss to the Connecticut Solar.

Reese’s outing was one other instance of the rising pains each rookie encounters once they make the soar. To not point out, going up in opposition to a frontcourt that features Natasha Howard and Teaira McCowan is a problem for even the elite forwards within the W.

Placing up 12 and 7 is an encouraging debut from the previous LSU star.

The Sky and Wings will meet once more Saturday at School Park Heart, a quirk of the WNBA scheduling construction and its intent to chop down on journey.
