Caitlin Clark failed to pick up her first WNBA win on Monday night as the Indiana Fever lost in the final seconds to the Connecticut Sun. The final score was 88-84.

The Fever fall to 0-4 on the season and the Sun move to 3-0. Clark had another great game, scoring 17 points on 5 of 11 shooting to go along with three rebounds and five assists. She left the game briefly due to injury in the first half but returned after halftime.

The Fever had a chance to tie the game late, but Aliyah Boston missed an open layup with six seconds left which ultimately sealed the Fever’s fate.

“Aliyah Boston with the game on the line”

“Aliyah Boston is terrible”

“We need to talk about how Aliyah Boston is really having a bad season. Clear sophomore slump. Fever lose again as expected.”


“Aliyah Boston costing her team a win is insane!! They should have drawn up a play for Clark but that would have been too obvious. The refs calling that foul on that fake Lebron Flop was ridiculous as well.”
