Caitlin Clark Unfazed by Draymond Green’s Unexpected Reaction to Her Tumble

Keeping Caitlin Clark under wraps on the basketball court is a tall order, but the WNBA’s strategy seems to lean heavily on physical play. This rough approach recently drew attention from none other than Draymond Green, who has now called for increased protection for the 2024 Draft’s top pick.

The incident in question involved Clark being taken down aggressively by Chennedy Carter during a nail-biting 71-70 win against the Chicago Sky. The play wasn’t flagged as a foul, sparking outrage among fans. Clark herself condemned the defense as unworthy of the game.

Even NBA stars are now voicing their concerns. Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green took to Instagram, urging the Indiana Fever to bolster their defense and shield their star from potential injuries.

“Indiana needs to get an enforcer… ASAP!” Green posted, suggesting that Clark’s teammates should step up their defensive game to protect her on the court.

An enforcer in basketball terms is a player who willingly absorbs physical hits to safeguard the team’s key players from repetitive and harsh fouls.

Carter’s foul on Clark was egregious and off-the-ball, with Clark not even in a position to contest the play at that moment. Realistically, Carter could have faced ejection for such a move.

Instead, Carter escaped with a common foul and stayed in the game, though Clark had the final word by clinching the victory.

Fever Triumph Over Sky

The Indiana Fever notched their second win of the season with a narrow one-point victory over Angel Reese’s Chicago Sky at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. The Fever had to fend off a late surge in the final quarter.

Leading 54-49 after three quarters, Clark’s team felt the pressure as the Sky managed to score over 20 points for the first time in the game during the final quarter.

Despite the Sky winning the final quarter 21-17, the Fever hung on by a thread, closing the game with a one-point edge. This win brings the Fever within striking distance of the Sky, who now hold a sub-.500 record for the season.
