The Connecticut Sun shone too brightly for Caitlin Clark and the Indiana Fever once more.

In a match that was similar to their first meeting in the WNBA season opener on May 14, the Sun easily defeated the Fever 89-72 on Monday night in Uncasville, Connecticut. Clark scored 20 points in the Sun’s 92-71 victory in that game, but the Fever’s performance in their third meeting with the team was noticeably worse for the league’s No. 1 selection overall.

Three days prior, during a victory over the Mystics, Clark had tied her career high in scoring (30 points) and set a new mark for 3-pointers made (7). Three days later, against the Sun, she was limited due to foul trouble and the game was essentially over at halftime. Clark finished with just 10 points on 3-for-8 shooting. Monday night, Clark recorded just two assists and, for the first time since the season’s first game against Connecticut, did not grab a rebound.

Halfway through the third quarter, Clark picked up her fourth foul and was benched for the remainder of the game. Clark has been the focus of intense discussion since it became known that she would not represent Team USA in the 2024 Olympics in Paris. When Connecticut pushed its lead to a game-high 28 points before the Indiana reserves chipped away at the lead in the fourth quarter, she was joined by the majority of the Fever starters, with the exception of Aliyah Boston.

With 14 points and 12 rebounds, Boston led the Fever; Indiana dropped to 3-10. Lexie Hull scored 10 points and pulled down four rebounds off the bench.

Alyssa Thomas, a forward for the Sun, is anticipated to be revealed as a 2024 U. S. Olympic team, who only scored seven points but grabbed eighteen rebounds, and Connecticut, who improved to a league-best 10-1 this season and 3-0 against Indiana in 2024, thanks to a career-high 22 points from DiJonai Carrington.

Five-time Olympic champion Diana Taurasi counsels Caitlin Clark.

In the first quarter, Clark scored five points, giving the Sun a commanding 26–15 lead. Thirteen seconds into the game, she made her first basket with a driving layup. At 5:08, she made her first 3-pointer. In the first quarter, she went 2 for 4.

Before taking a shot and going to the bench, Clark played the first minute of the second quarter. She returned to the game at 5:47 and scored her second three-pointer of the night not long after. Clark made both of her first-round free throw attempts less than a minute later.

However, the Fever rookie’s last few minutes of the half were difficult. After Clark committed two consecutive fast fouls, Carrington stole the ball from Indiana and raced down the court for a lay-in at the buzzer, giving the Sun a 55-35 lead heading into the locker room. Indiana was then set to attempt the game’s last shot.

Although Clark scored 10 points on 3 of 6 shots at the half, the Sun were superior to the Fever in almost every statistical category. With 18 assists, Connecticut’s field goal percentage of 61 points was the highest in the first half of the season, and they outrebounded Indiana 18 to 9. Clark only dishing out one assist as the Fever recorded a 43.3% shooting percentage and eight assists.
