Chennedy Carter rips Caitlin Clark’s game on social media

It turns out that Chicago Sky guard Chennedy Carter had something to say about Indiana Fever rookie guard Caitlin Clark after all.

Carter took to the Threads social media platform where she responded to a post detailing her post-match media comments following Sky’s 71-70 loss to the Fever on Saturday.

Athletic’s Nicole Auerbach shared Threads’ Carter exchange on her account on X.

“And that’s why she brings more to the table besides three-point shooting, man,” Carter wrote on Threads.

During the game, Carter was assessed an out-of-play foul on Clark when she bodychecked Clark before Aliyah Boston’s inbound pass just before the end of the third quarter. After a league review, the WNBA upgraded the foul to Flagrant 1, although Carter was not fined.

Asked for comment on the series and her foul on Clark, Carter declined to comment after Saturday’s loss.

“I’m not answering Caitlin Clark’s questions. I don’t know what she said. I didn’t say anything,” Carter told reporters.

WNBA fans had a wide range of reactions to the series featuring Carter and Clark. Many felt it crossed the line and some thought it was indicative of Carter and the league’s jealousy of Clark.

During the game, Clark was interviewed between the third and fourth quarters where she was asked to comment on the foul.

“Yeah, that’s just not a basketball game. But you know, I gotta play through it, that’s what basketball is about at this level,” Clark said.

Fever head coach Christie Sides defended Clark on social media on Saturday, calling the foul “unacceptable.”

“This is unacceptable WNBA. When will the persistent complaints be heard?!? Something has to happen!” Edges placed on X.

Sides also celebrated Clark’s in-game response to the sequence.

“We’re going to continue to send these assets out to the league, and these plays, and hopefully they’ll start, you know, getting a better look at some of the things that we see happening, or that we think are happening.

“I’m just happier that Caitlin handled it the way she did. You know, it’s hard to get hammered the way she does and not be rewarded with free throws or bad decisions. She kept fighting through it. Appreciate that from her. Really proud of her for doing that,” Sides said.

Clark finished her day with 11 points, eight rebounds, six assists and one steal. The 6-foot-4 rookie guard shot 4-of-11 from the field, including 2-of-9 from 3-point range.

During the Fever win, Clark joined Sabrina Ionescu as the only players in WNBA history to register more than 150 points, more than 50 rebounds and more than 50 assists in their first 10 career games.

Clark and the Fever return to action in a prime-time affair against the New York Liberty on NBA TV on Sunday at 6 p.m.
