Fans of WNBA phenom Caitlin Clark were none too happy with the result of her latest game on Sunday.

Clark’s Indiana Fever fell to the Chicago Sky and the Sky’s own young star, Clark’s longtime rival Angel Resse.

It wasn’t just the Fever’s loss in Chicago itself that had Clark fans upset, however.

It was how the team lost.

Despite having scored 17 points throughout the game, during the final seven-minute stretch Clark shot only twice, according to the New York Post.

Overall, the Fever only scored five points in that time.

Clark did manage to rack up a franchise-record 13 assists over the course of the game, but even that wasn’t enough to bring the Fever past the finish line.

The Indiana club lost by a razor-thin margin of one point, scoring 87 to the Sky’s 88. The Fever had been up by 15 points in the third quarter, the Post reported.

On social media, fans were quick to voice their displeasure with the decision not to put the ball in Clark’s hands during the late-game minutes.

Some even suggested Fever head coach Christie Sides should lose her job.

If Caitlin Clark doesn’t get a a new head coach that can draw up plays and coach they are going to waste her talent. Worse coaching in the last 6 min I have ever seen. @IndianaFever

“If Caitlin Clark doesn’t get a a new head coach that can draw up plays and coach they are going to waste her talent. Worse coaching in the last 6 min I have ever seen,” one fan posted on X.

This Chicago Sky win over the Indiana Fever should be the nail in the coffin for Fever coach Christie Sides. Nearly seven minutes of NO offense, letting the Sky rally from down big. And now, chance to win, you have GOT to get the ball into Clark, one on one. No set play!

This league is a joke. Your best shooter Clark literally only took two shots in the last 6:30 minutes of the game?

Who is coaching this team? A 12 year old could figure out how to close that game out 😂

“This league is a joke. Your best shooter Clark literally only took two shots in the last 6:30 minutes of the game?” another X user posted. “Who is coaching this team? A 12 year old could figure out how to close that game out.”

Even former NFL star Robert Griffin III chimed in in a social media post:

Caitlin Clark should have taken the last shot. That’s why you have her. For moments like that. Period. pic.twitter.com/rRjUbruID4

“Caitlin Clark should have taken the last shot. That’s why you have her. For moments like that. Period,” Griffin wrote.

Unlike the fans, Clark wasn’t too upset over the Fever’s strategy, even in the game’s final minutes.

“I’m sure there was an opportunity or two for me to probably attempt another shot there at the end, but I trust my teammates,” Clark said, according to the Post.

“Obviously 13 assists, that means my teammates scored off of 13 of my passes. It’s a really great number so I’m going to give them the ball every time. Give them an opportunity to score. I believe in them.”


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?

Sincerely,

Josh Manning
