The Indiana Fever star was putting on an attacking masterclass in the fourth quarter when Caitlin Clark got herself into a little bit of trouble due to her anger.  

During the Indiana Fever’s fourth consecutive defeat, Caitlin Clark became enraged and yelled at a referee, which seemed to be captured by ESPN’s microphones.

Despite Caitlin Clark scoring 17 points, Indiana lost to the Connecticut Sun 88-84, its fourth straight defeat. 

In the midst of an Indiana run during the game, Clark was punished for a technical foul when she yelled at the officials after Alyssa Thomas of the Suns stole the ball and went the other way. 

“It’s a f–king foul,” Clark appeared to scream angrily at the official after she was forced to foul in order to prevent an easy layup.


When Clark tried to slow down Connecticut on the opposite end, she felt as though Thomas had fouled her before her steal. The transition take foul did not improve the situation, as it led to more free throws in crunch time.

“Just the technical foul, can’t get that,” Clark told reporters after the game. “A little frustration of how the game was reffed. But it is what it is. That’s out of your control. I thought our team put ourselves in position to make some plays to try and win down the stretch, and the Sun always came up with big plays.” 

The technical foul gave the Sun one free throw, which DeWanna Bonner hit to tie the score. This was a pivotal point in the game, and it was the final instance in which the Fever led. 

A back-and-forth struggle on the scoreboard finally resulted in a tie with 30 seconds remaining for the Fever, thanks to a seven-foot jumper made by Aliyah Boston after Caitlin Clark found her. 

But with 11.1 seconds remaining, Temi Fagbenle of Indiana was called for a personal foul on Tyasha Harris, which resulted in two free throws. Harris would score two points from each to give Connecticut a two-point advantage over Indiana.

 

Clark and Indiana will try to win their first game of the season on Wednesday night versus the Seattle Storm.

Wilson will also drop release exclusive collections to celebrate Clark, including a signature basketball line set to debut later in the year. 

Caitlin Clark and the Indiana Fever have lost their second game in a row, as the 2024 No. 1 Draft pick and her teammates were blown yet again – this time to the New York Liberty and reigning MVP Breanna Stewart – in her second WNBA contest. 

In Indianapolis’ most anticipated rookie debut since Peyton Manning in 1998, Clark did not deliver the expected performance in the Fever’s 102-66 loss at home. For the second straight game, she struggled with foul trouble.

The rookie finished with nine points, seven rebounds, six assists and three turnovers, none after the first quarter – a dramatic improvement over the 10 she had Tuesday night.

Clark, who showed signs of frustrations in the first half by throwing a towel onto the ground after being subbed, was 2 of 8 from the field and just 1 of 7 on 3-pointers.

On Tuesday, she ended up scoring 20 points against the Connecticut Sun although showed her struggles in the first half after putting up just seven points of what was her WNBA debut.

Sabrina Ionescu and Jonquel Jones each scored 14 for New York, which has won eight straight over Indiana. Jones also had 10 rebounds.

Aliyah Boston had a game-high 12 points and 10 rebounds for Indiana.

The Liberty didn’t just make life difficult for Clark, they made things tough for Indiana.

Stewart helped New York seize control by taking a 25-16 lead after one quarter. And when the Fever cut the deficit to 32-27 midway through the second quarter, Stewart answered with four straight points to spur a 12-0 run that gave the Liberty a 44-27 cushion late in the first half.

Indiana finally responded by closing the third quarter with 12 straight points, the first seven coming courtesy of Clark, to make it 67-56 after three.

But the defending Eastern Conference champs opened the fourth quarter on a 12-0 spurt and cruised to their second straight victory.

Indianapolis is quickly becoming a favorite destination for Clark’s former teammates and coaches. Ex-Hawkeyes guard Gabbie Marshall showed up and posed for a photo with her longtime friend following Clark’s first home preseason game last week.

On Thursday, the entourage included former coach, Lisa Bluder, who announced her retirement on Monday, and new Hawkeyes coach, Jan Jensen – Bluder’s longtime assistant.

The Fever and Liberty head back to New York on Saturday for a rematch.
