Caitlin Clark WNBA preseason debut reviews: The best reactions to Fever rookie’s performance vs. Wings

Caitlin Clark proved the hype is legit in her first WNBA preseason game.

The No. 1 pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft scored a game-high 21 points that included multiple of her patented deep 3-point shots off the dribble. She finished the game with five made 3s.

The Fever didn’t come away with the win as Arike Ogunbowale knocked down the game-winning 3-pointer with three seconds remaining. The Wings won 79-76.

Nonetheless, the world was impressed by Clark’s performance and shouted her out via social media.

Clark’s first bucket in a Fever uniform — a 28-foot 3-pointer from the left side of the court — was well-documented.

Fans had the opportunity to watch Clark live on the WNBA app for free tonight. It’s safe to assume that Clark will drive a lot of WNBA League Pass subscriptions this season and beyond.

Emmanuel Acho brought up the doubters who said Clark wouldn’t be able to keep up her excellence in the WNBA as easily.

Another fan showed a sold-out crowd to watch Clark’s debut.

The Fever posted a photo of Clark making fellow rookie Jacy Sheldon fall. To be fair, there was a bit of a push-off, but this photo is indeed cold:

Clark even has a fan comparing her to 2016 Stephen Curry, who was named the NBA’s first unanimous MVP that season.

One fan is crowning Clark as the league’s best player, and another “can’t wait” for the Fever rookie to score 40 on Diana Taurasi.

WNBA draftees have a quick turnaround from college hoops to the pros. Clark was playing at Iowa just a month ago.
