How many points did Caitlin Clark score? Fever vs Storm stats

play

Caitlin Clark scored 20 points and added nine assists, but the Indiana Fever lost again on Thursday night, being eliminated at home by the Seattle Storm 103-88.

Five Storm players scored in double figures in the win, led by Jewell Loyd’s 22. Both NaLyssa Smith (23 points, 10 rebounds) and Aliyah Boston (11 points, 12 rebounds) had double-doubles for Indiana, but the Fever allowed Seattle to shoot 56 .0% from the field for the match, which led to the loss. Indiana (1-8) remains at the bottom of the WNBA standings; only the Washington Mystics (0-7) are worse.

After a scoreless first quarter, Clark warmed up and scored 12 points in the second period. That included two 3s, the second of which caused a minor altercation between Clark and Seattle’s Victoria Vivians.

After Clark cleared the 32-footer to bring Indiana within six, 34-28, Clark and Vivians bumped into each other and exchanged words. Clark was clearly excited about something Vivians said, but Boston rushed to separate the two before everything got too crazy. Still, both players received technical fouls, Clark’s third of the season (the most in the league).

Clark also grabbed three rebounds and blocked one shot — she is Indiana’s blocks leader for the season, with 10 total — but she also recorded seven turnovers. As a team, Indiana threw the ball away 13 times, leading to 22 Seattle points. The Storm also dominated the Fever in the paint, outscoring Indiana 56-34.

The Fever fell short on Thursday, missing two starters. Forward Temi Fagbenle is out two to three weeks with a left foot injury, and guard Erica Wheeler missed the game for personal reasons.

Fever coach Christie Sides also woke up late in the third quarter, furious after Clark drove and missed a hard shot inside. There was a lot of contact – Clark was knocked to the ground – and there was no foul play.
