“I’m just trying to be consistent for my teammates, doing whatever I can to help my team,” Reese said after the 84-71 loss. “I think I didn’t do enough tonight, but just being able to be there for my teammates and knowing that I have a job to do every day no matter if I’m a rookie or a vet.”

Speaking of Reese, Sky coach Teresa Weatherspoon said, “She might be surprising herself, but she’s not surprising me. It’s something that she can do because it’s something that she puts the work in to be able to do. And it’s a will and want-to… it’s awesome to see the work that you have to put in to be able to do this.”

Reese has now recorded 14 double-doubles this season, tying for the fifth-most by a rookie in history. The record for the most double-doubles by a first-year player is held by Tina Charles with 22.

“It’s great for me, being able to know where I’m at right now and obviously I’m not satisfied where I’m at,” Reese said to ESPN. “I have coaches and teammates around me that believe in me and trust me and I just continue to just trust the process of everything. I’m grateful. I’m blessed and lucky to be named with these amazing players. They’ve always been super nice to me. They’ve always been helpful and inspiring to me. I’ve watched them all my life and finally to be here in this moment and break their records and being able to be up there with them is really cool.”
