Angel Reese


Chicago Sky star Angel Reese clashed with Atlanta’s Naz Hillmon during the team’s 89-80 loss to the Dream on Saturday.

With the Dream leading 78-75 in the fourth quarter, Hillmon blocked Reese’s shot, then stared her down and shouted at her. Reese quickly responded: “What the f**k is wrong with you?”

Referees separated the two, and the situation cooled down without becoming physical.

The Dream posted the clip of the altercation twice on Twitter, first writing that Hillmon was “not having it!”

Later, they posted the clip again from a different angle.

“WE KNOW THAT’S RIGHT NAZ!” the post read.

Hillmon finished the game with eight points, while Reese scored 13 and added 13 rebounds.

Reese has battled a number of different controversies in recent weeks

Reese shows her frustration

The Sky’s loss dropped their record to 4-6. Reese expressed her frustration after the game, emphasizing the need for team consistency.

“Yeah, it’s tough,” Reese said.

“It’s tough because I hate losing, and I try to go out there every night and try to be as consistent as I can.

“I think having consistency one through 12 is important from the jump ball to the end. It’s not the coaches or the other team, it’s us.”

Reese has been making headlines recently. She was ejected from the Sky’s 88-75 loss to the New York Liberty on Tuesday after receiving two technical fouls while arguing with a referee.

However, on Wednesday, the WNBA rescinded the second technical foul. Additionally, Reese claimed on Twitter that a man harassed her and her teammates, particularly Chennedy Carter, as they tried to get off their team bus and go to their hotel in Washington D.C.

“Finding out our team’s hotel to pull with a camera as we get off the bus and put it in my teammates face & HARASS her is NASTY WORK,” Reese posted on Twitter.

“This really is outta control and needs to STOP.”
