Candace Parker makes WNBA history by reaching unprecedented milestone


Candace Parker became the first player in WNBA history to reach 6,000-plus career points, 3,000-plus rebounds and 1,500-plus assists, as she led the Chicago Sky to a 91-83 win over the Connecticut Sun.

The seven-time WNBA All-Star posted 25 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists, as well as four blocks, as Chicago extended its record to 14-5 for the season to remain atop the Eastern Conference.

It’s the second piece of history Parker has recorded in the space of a week, after she became the first WNBA player to reach three career triple-doubles in a win over the Los Angeles Sparks.
