The Indiana Fever are currently on a roll, setting a marked improvement on their early season form which had left fans very disappointed, not least in rookie arrival Caitlin Clark.

Caitlin Clark and her team secured their third straight win against the Washington Mystics on Wednesday night, bringing their season record to 6-10.

If the 2024 WNBA season ended today, the Fever would make the playoffs for the first time since 2016.

This recent success has left Fever head coach Christie Sides in a strong position, and she was quick to ensure her team realized just how pleased she was with them.

Alas, as is always the case in modern sport, the message didn’t stay private for long and has been leaked in the hours following the match.

“I love how we got it done!” Sides exclaimed, clapping enthusiastically.

“That’s all that matters.”

Sides is ready for her team to kick on

Sides faced significant criticism for the Fever‘s slow start this season. However, she now has reason to celebrate, as shown by her heartfelt message to her players on Wednesday.

The Indiana Fever‘s social media team captured video of Sides addressing the team in the locker room, and they were quick to post the video to the internet.

The entire Fever team then gathered in the middle of the locker room for a celebratory cheer before the video concluded.

Sides worried that she may lose her job given the poor start the team made to the WNBA campaign, however that is the pressure that comes when you are able to draft a player as talented as Caitlin Clark.

Getting to sign the best rookie on the market is a blessing, but it can be a coach killer, especially if the team doesn’t improve on their previous season… just ask Monty Williams.

The positive energy is palpable for the Fever right now, and they aim to continue their success on their upcoming road trip.

In a recent episode of First Take, host Stephen A. Smith surprised everyone by discussing the challenges faced by Indiana Fever star player Caitlin Clark. While giving his opinion on the criticism surrounding Clark, Smith mentioned a controversial name. The 56-year-old NBA analyst brought up Donald Trump and discussed how race plays a role in Clark’s controversies.

“There’s a broader issue here that can’t be escaped. And that is this: she is a white young lady. And she’s been a magnet in a way that has benefitted the league in ways that others have not, even though their efforts have been worthy and deserving of being as celebrated, if not even more celebrated…. in the end, if you’re white, you’re bright, you’re right, and as a result, the shine comes your way in the eyes of a lot of people in America.” Smith said.

“You have somebody that’s a presidential candidate. What is his claim to fame? Make America Great Again. What have people interpreted that to mean? Make America White Again… what has that led to? A divide. It is not a divide that is created. It is a divide that is illuminated because it highlights and shows that it’s been in existence all along. And It hasn’t gone anywhere.” Smith added.

Caitlin Clark Racism Controversy

After making her debut in the WNBA, Clark has been involved in numerous controversies on a weekly basis. Recently, her fans have been bringing up her name in discussions about racism, misogyny, and homophobia. During an interview, the 22-year-old Fever player was asked about these topics, and she said that her focus was on basketball. Despite Clark ignoring the fans’ actions, another player, Connecticut Sun guard DiJonai Carrington, criticized Clark for ignoring such essential incidents.
