Throughout this season, if there’s one word that could describe the Chicago Sky, it is “relentless.” Often, the mentality is combined with their No. 5 rookie Angel Reese. However, it is the entire team that does not give up until the very end. In fact, that is exactly how they have performed this so far. But looks like some pieces of the puzzle fell off as despite Reese leaving Candace Parker behind, the team’s head coach Teresa Weatherspoon was not satisfied with the loss.

After losing to the Minnesota Lynx, the Sky are now 6-11 for the season. And despite so many losses, their head coach T-spoon has accepted defeats as lessons. But last night, she showed a little disappointment in the group. In her post-game press conference, she answered why the group only scored 5 points in the last 10 minutes. She said, “Ball wasn’t moving.” 

The head coach added“The ball didn’t move. First three quarters, the ball was moving. Swing, swing, and allow the ball to find the energy. We were playing very well. Fourth quarter, ball does not move. That’s not the team, we’re not that kind of a team. We’re a team that’s, we’re only a team that can get it done together.”

Certainly, Chicago was going quite well as they completely thrashed the Minnesota Lynx with 24 points in the first quarter. Even by the end of the first half, they led the visitors by 5 points. However, the current Commissioner’s Cup champions tied them by the third quarter to completely overtake the host in the final minutes.

In fact, the Sky combined went 2 for 23 in the last quarter to account for just 5 points in a losing effort. Out of this, 3 points were by Angel Reese, who made WNBA history by leaving Candace Parker behind with 10 consecutive double-doubles in a season.

How are Angel Reese and the Sky taking the home defeat?

The rookie and the team were clearly not happy with the outcome of the game. Keeping on track, they accepted what they did and learned from the defeat. In their post-game presser, Lindsay Allen mentioned how their offense lost in the crucial minutes. She said, “We just weren’t moving the ball. Like we were the whole game up to that point. We got stagnant.” 

The Sky guard Chennedy Carter also opened up on why the switches did not click for the team. She said, “As the game went on, people started to get out of flow. We can’t have that. We got to have everybody on the same page. Everybody feeling good, everybody taking the right shots at the right time.” However, their star rookie, Angel Reese, was still positive.

Surely, it was a night for Reese to celebrate after inking her name in two history books. Next, the Sky will hit the road to travel to the South. They will be taking on the Dream for the second time this season in hopes of breaking their 2-game losing streak.
