Caitlin Clark Gets On-Court Revenge Against 3 Players Picked Ahead of Her for Olympics

Caitlin Clark suffered from a migraine Sunday, but it was nothing to the headache she gave the Phoenix Mercury.

Clark led the Indiana Fever to an 88-82 victory over the Mercury, which has Olympians Diana Taurasi, Kahleah Copper, and Brittney Griner on its roster.

“It’s amazing what Caitlin’s been able to do in her short career so far,” Taurasi said, according to ESPN.

Clark finished with 15 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds.

“The one thing that I really love about her, she loves the game. You can tell she’s put the work in. … It’s been a lot of pressure, a lot of things thrown at her, and she keeps showing up and keeps getting better every single game,” Taurasi said.

“So her future is super bright, and being a veteran and being in this league for a long, long time, it is pretty cool to see that and go into the future,” she said.

Indiana was down by as many as 15 points in the second half, but came back to win.

“I’m just happy we won,” Clark, who did not appear after the game due to her headache, said as she left the court.

“It was cool to play against [Taurasi] and obviously a really great game. This crowd was absolutely incredible,” she said.

For the Fever, five players scored in double digits, led by Aliyah Boston with 17 points, Kelsey Mitchell with 16, Clark with 15, NaLyssa Smith with 12 and Temi Fagbenle with 10.

“We continue to tell each other, ‘We’re good, stay here, pay attention to what we have to do,’” Boston said. “Use that as energy for us, not as a distraction, not worrying about if they’re going to foul us hard or not. Every night it’s going to be a battle, so we have to be ready for it.”

“I think what [Clark is] doing for that team right now is pretty impressive,” Taurasi said.

Indiana is currently in the hunt for a spot in the WNBA playoffs, which it last made in 2016.

Indiana is 8-12 for the year after winning six of the team’s last 10 games, according to Sports Illustrated.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 


That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.


Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.


The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”


All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.


Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 


A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.


We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight?
