Angel Reese got away with ridiculous violations on fast break

Chicago Sky rookie Angel Reese dribbling

Chicago Sky rookie Angel Reese somehow evaded the watchful eyes of the referees Thursday during one play against the Dallas Wings at Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Ill.

Reese jumped a passing lane for an easy steal midway through the third quarter of the Wings-Sky contest.

Reese appeared to get away with a couple of double dribbles and an egregious travel en route to an uncontested layup.

Reese scored another basket just a few seconds later to give the Sky a 57-35 lead — their largest of the game. The Sky held on for an 83-72 win against the scuffling Wings.

Reese had one of the best games of her young career in the victory over Dallas. The LSU alum finished with 16 points on 7/13 shooting from the field to go along with 18 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals.

Thursday’s free pass was a little out of the ordinary given that Reese hasn’t exactly had the best experience with WNBA referees so far. Reese was whistled for a flagrant foul for whacking Caitlin Clark in the head during the Sky’s prior contest against the Indiana Fever.

Reese also got ejected from a game earlier this month after disrespecting one of the officials.
