Caitlin Clark showed her star potential in her WNBA preseason debut just a few days ago, and she’s set to play again Thursday — this time in front of hometown Fever fans.

Indiana will get its first in-person opportunity to watch Clark perform in a Fever jersey as the team hosts the Dream at 7 p.m. ET Thursday. This will be the Fever’s second and final preseason game before they open their season on Tuesday, May 14, on the road against the Connecticut Sun.

Clark impressed in her debut
, scoring a game-high 21 points, including five 3-pointers. Social media did not shy away from excitement
 over the highlights from her preseason opener in Dallas, and even more eyes could follow her Thursday.

She and the Fever will go up against the Dream, who finished the 2023 season with a 19-21 record. Atlanta drafted three foreign-born players in the 2024 WNBA Draft — two from Australia and one from Italy.
