How’d Caitlin Clark Fare in the Preseason Tuneups?

In maybe the most hyped preseason game in the WNBA’s 28-year history, Clark and the Fever squared off against the Wings in Dallas on May 3. Indiana came up short, 79-76, but Clark put on a decent show in her first taste of WNBA action.

She was in the starting lineup and logged 28 minutes, knocking down 6 of 15 field goals – including a 5-of-13 clip from downtown – to tally 21 points. She chipped in three boards, two dimes and a couple of steals, but coughed it up five times. Curiously, she drained all but one of her five freebies.

Displaying the same elusiveness that tormented defenders during her days at Iowa, Clark sliced and diced on the perimeter with her handles and let it fly from way downtown.

In the Fever’s next preseason tilt, they edged the Atlanta Dream, 83-80. Clark saw 32 minutes of burn and went 4-of-12 from the field, with a 2-of-9 clip from three-point land, to finish with 12 points. Echoing her first outing, Clark was a turnover machine with six giveaways, but she grabbed eight boards and dished out six dimes.
