Caitlin Clark Saved by Indiana Fever Teammate Amid Tough Media Query

While the Indiana Fever are showing signs of improvement, Caitlin Clark isn’t getting much respite from the press. Following the Fever’s victory over the Washington Mystics, Clark was hit with a particularly challenging question that left her momentarily speechless. Fortunately, her teammate Aliyah Boston came to her rescue, easing the tension and redirecting the focus.

Clark Faces Tough Question After Win

This season, Clark has been a focal point for media scrutiny, fielding questions on subjects she’d rather avoid, such as her supposed “rivalry” with Angel Reese, her exclusion from the Olympics, and the physicality of WNBA matchups, notably against Chennedy Carter.

After the Fever secured an 88-81 triumph over the faltering Washington Mystics—marking their third consecutive home victory—Clark was confronted with a query about her off-target passes rather than the win. Aliyah Boston, the 2023 WNBA Rookie of the Year, intervened to support the 2024 award hopeful.

“Just trying to slow down a little bit,” Clark said, addressing how she plans to reduce her turnovers. “Honestly, I’m trying to recall the others.”

“Don’t stress,” Boston interjected, alleviating the pressure on her point guard.

“You observe Caitlin’s passing, and sometimes those things happen. We’re not going to let her get down on herself, and we won’t let any missed passes get us down,” she asserted, effectively quelling the reporter’s critical question.

Clark and Boston Steering Fever’s Revival

This isn’t the first instance of Boston stepping up for the former Iowa standout this season, and it’s been essential. Former NBA player Matt Barnes is among those who have criticized Clark’s teammates for not sufficiently shielding her from relentless targeting, particularly from players like Carter.

With the Fever finally getting some crucial rest and improving to a 6-10 record during their recent streak, it seems the team is coalescing both on and off the court. Their future success hinges on their dynamic duo of No. 1 draft picks, who are currently proving to be each other’s strongest allies.
