How has Angel Reese fared so far for the Chicago Sky?

Angel Reese came into the matchup against the Seattle Storm averaging 12.3 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists. The forward has cemented herself as the second-leading scorer in the Chicago Sky outfit, behind Marina Mabrey (19.3 points, 7.0 rebounds and 5.5 assists). While she has yet to record a 20-point game in her WNBA career, her rookie year has been impressive, showing glimpses of the force she was for the LSU.
