Last game Diamond DeShields shone in a first up win, This time it was the turn of Gabby Williams to help the Chicago Sky to their second win of the season.
Last season, prior to the return of Courtney Vendersloot the Chicago Sky were a terrible team. In fact, it cost them a berth in the playoffs. This season, the Sky are a vastly different team.
Gabby Williams was the fourth pick in the 2018 WNBA draft. She has struggled a litle to find her feet, she was not herself in the preseason. Last game she scored four points on 2-of-7 shooting. However, Diamond DeShields was able to carry the load last game.
This game DeSheilds would go 2-of-7 but Williams was able to step up. In just under 19 minutes Williams went 5-of-7 from the field, good for 14 points. She only collected two rebounds and three steals but it was a night which showcased Williams true potential.
She was helped by the fact that Allie Quigley was on fire. Quigley scored 22 points on 7-of-13 shooting including 2-of-4 from deep. She went to the line seven times making sic of them.
In the battle for the reserve point guard minutes when Vandersloot returns Jamierra Faulkner took a huge step forward. In her 23 minutes she scored 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting including 2-of-3 from deep. She also collected five rebounds and gave out five assists.
Once again Alaina Coates put in a solid showing going a perfect 4-of-4 in 15 minutes for eight points. If she can continue this output she could easily get 20 minutes a night.
The Sky have been a surprise this season. They were expected to win the first game agains the Indiana Fever. However, the Liberty would have pencilled this game in as a win. The Sky can really set their season up with a win against the new look Atlanta Dream.
