Angel Reese gets in heated altercation with Naz Hillmon during Chicago Sky loss

The Atlanta Dream got the last laugh.

Polarizing Chicago Sky star Angel Reese got into a heated altercation 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 before staring her down and shouting at her.

Reese quickly responded, and appeared to yell “What the f–k is wrong with you?”

The two were separated by referees, but it had already cooled down and did not become physical.

The Dream then posted the clip twice on X, writing that Hillmon was “not having it!”

They later posted the clip again from a different angle, writing “WE KNOW THAT’S RIGHT NAZ!”

Hillmon finished with eight points, while Reese scored 13.

Reese also added 13 rebounds.

The Sky fell to 4-6, and Reese sent a message to her teammates after the game.

“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.”

She’s made ample headlines in recent days — she was ejected from the Sky’s 88-75 loss to the New York Liberty on Tuesday after receiving two technical fouls back-to-back while arguing with a referee, but on Wednesday the WNBA rescinded the second technical foul.

And later on Wednesday, Reese claimed on X that a man harassed her and her teammates — particularly Chennedy Carter — while they tried to get off their team bus and go to their hotel in Washington D.C.

“Finding out our teams hotel to pull with a camera as we get off the bus and put it in my teammates face & HARASS her is NASTY WORK [sic],” Reese posted on X on Wednesday. “This really is outta control and needs to STOP.”

Last week, Reese was fined $1,000 for not making herself available to the media following the Sky’s 71-70 loss to the Indiana Fever.

Prior to that game, Reese pushed back on Caitlin Clark receiving credit for the recent surge in interest in the WNBA.

“I know I’ll go down in history,” Reese said. “I’ll look back in 20 years and be like: ‘Yeah, the reason why we’re watching women’s basketball is not just because of one person, it’s because of me too, and I want you to realize that.”
