Chicago Sky forward Angel Reese tried to go for a block on Caitlin Clark of the Indiana Fever during their latest matchup, but her arm ended up finding her head in the process.

Angel Reese committed a flagrant foul while Clark was driving to the rim in the third quarter. Replay showed her swinging her arm and hitting the back of Clark’s head, sending Clark sprawling to the floor.

Refs gave her a Flagrant 1 for “unnecessary” contact, per the WNBA’s rule book.

Following the Sky’s 91-83 loss to the Indiana Fever at Gainbridge Fieldhouse, Reese was asked about the moment.

“It was a basketball play,” Reese said, via The Athletic’s Nicole Auerbach. “I can’t control the refs. They affected the game obviously a lot today. I’m always going for the ball. Y’all are going to play that clip 20 times before Monday.”

Caitlin Clark, who scored 23 points on 7-for-11 shooting along with eight rebounds and nine assists, was also asked about her feelings when it came to the flagrant foul from Reese.

Clark made it clear that she was well aware that Reese was making an attempt to block her shot and that no animosity was behind the play.

“What’s going through my mind? I need to make these two free throws. That’s all I’m thinking about. It’s just part of basketball. It is what it is,” Clark said.

“She’s trying to make a play on the ball, and get the block. It happens.”

This was the second straight game in which the Sky were given a flagrant foul against Caitlin Clark.

In the loss, Reese continued on her hot streak as she recorded her sixth straight double-double with 11 points and 13 rebounds while adding five assists, per ESPN.

Caitlin Clark Took a Hard Hit Against The Chicago Sky In a Previous Matchup As Well

Caitlin Clark has had a rough go when it comes to facing the Chicago Sky when it comes to fouls.

The first matchup earlier this month featured Sky guard Chennedy Carter pushing her to the ground in an obvious non-basketball play. Somehow, she only received a common foul but was later upgraded to a flagrant one by the WNBA league office.

The two teams will meet again next Sunday, June 23, at Wintrust Arena in Chicago.
