Caitlin Clark Helps Lead Indiana Fever to Rare Team Achievement!

Brett Phelps/IndyStar / USA TODAY

Caitlin Clark had plenty of dazzling plays. She did everything out on the floor, filling up the box score. And she certainly had social media buzzing. But most importantly her team won.

The Indiana Fever have now won three in a row, four straight at home. The latter being the most for the franchise since 2015. In large part because Clark has found her groove not just as an individual, but alongside her teammates.

Aliyah Boston and Kelsey Mitchell have both gotten going to complement Clark. Boston and CC are developing a clear connection, with Aliyah reemerging as a force in contrast to the beginning of the season. Boston is in the midst of a strong stretch that saw her win WNBA Eastern Conference Player of the Week. While Mitchell is providing scoring in a manner that can make an offense unpredictable given how she can create for herself.

After starting this season with 11 games in 20 days, many against the top teams in the league, it seems the Fever have been able to settle in with some rest and practice time. Indiana currently holds a playoff spot and it is reasonable to expect them to continue to trend upward with more games featuring four of five starters in double figures like was the case against the Washington Mystics.

Clark herself is now averaging over 16 points, 5 rebounds, and 6 assists on the year; so any notion of her struggling has been completely tossed out the window. With the team racking up wins as she racks up rookie records.
