Witness the clash of WNBA’s top post stars as Chicago Sky’s rookie sensation Angel Reese goes head-to-head with Las Vegas Aces’ superstar A’ja Wilson. Catch the excitement this Thursday!

Bollywood Fever: The WNBA’s present and future post stars are set to clash as the re-energized Las Vegas Aces travel to face the Chicago Sky on Thursday.

Chicago rookie Angel Reese is making a strong case as the league’s most promising frontcourt rookie, but she has yet to face the defending two-time champion Aces and their superstar center A’ja Wilson. Reese has shown significant improvement, averaging 13.2 points per game and ranking second in the league in rebounding with 11.1 rebounds per game. She has recorded double-doubles in her last eight games and is coming off a career-best 25-point performance in an 88-87 victory over the Indiana Fever on Sunday.

“It was amazing,” Sky center Kamille Cardoso said of Reese’s performance. “She brings a lot of energy for all of us. It rubs off, so when she’s playing really well, we tend to play really hard for her.”

Reese expressed her excitement to compete against one of the WNBA’s premier frontcourt talents.

“I love A’ja Wilson,” Reese said. “She’s someone I’ve always tried to model my game after, both on and off the court. I admire who she is, and just being mentioned alongside her is amazing.”

Chicago (6-9) has won its last two games, with significant contributions from guard Chennedy Carter, who has averaged 20 points over the past three games, shooting 67 percent from the field.

Las Vegas (8-6) may have found their stride with the return of point guard Chelsea Gray from a leg injury. The Aces started the season 6-6 without Gray but have won both games since her return. Throughout Gray’s WNBA career, her teams have a record of 207-93 when she plays and 21-27 when she does not.

“It’s a huge difference for us,” Wilson said of Gray’s presence. “I know a lot of people love her fancy passing… but Chelsea gets us organized. She gets us in a flow.”

Two-time MVP Wilson will provide a formidable challenge for Reese. The 6-foot-4 center leads the league in scoring with 27.8 points per game and rebounding with 11.6 rebounds per game. She is also the reigning two-time WNBA Defensive Player of the Year.

“I knew this season was going to be hard for us,” Wilson said. “Not only are we going for a third championship, but everyone’s gotten better. This league is getting better.”

This game will be the first of four meetings between the teams this season.
