Caitlin Clark makes successful WNBA debut but Indiana Fever fall to Connecticut Sun

The Connecticut Sun were not fazed by arguably the most anticipated WNBA debut of all time as they beat the Indiana Fever with ease, 91-72, in the WNBA’s season opener on Tuesday night.

The Sun were about business against highly-touted rookie Caitlin Clark to rout the Fever. Veteran Alyssa Thomas put up a triple-double of 13 points, 10 rebounds, and 13 assists as she carved up the defense of the young Fever featuring back-to-back no.1 picks in Clark and Aliyah Boston.

Clark, this year’s top overall selection in the draft and the NCAA’s all-time leading scorer in history, scored 20 points on 5-15 shooting from the field including 4-11 from distance. However, she committed 10 turnovers in her first taste of pro basketball.

36-year-old vet DeWanna Bonner led the Sun in scoring with 20 points while teammates DiJonai Carrington and Tyasha Harris added 16 apiece in a balanced attack for Connecticut.

Up next for Clark is a showdown between Sabrina Ionescu and the New York Liberty in her home debut at Indiana on Thursday.
