Caitlin Clark's WNBA debut didn't go exactly as she hoped as the former Iowa star finished with 20 points and 10 turnovers in the Indiana Fever's 92-71 loss to the Connecticut Sun on Tuesday night.

Clark did make four three-pointers on the night and seemed to get more into a groove late in the game after some early foul trouble landed her on the bench for a bit during the first half.

ESPN's cameras caught a powerful moment as Clark made her way to locker room at halftime. Teammate Aliyah Boston, the No. 1 overall in the 2023 WNBA draft, was seen coaching Clark up as they walked off the court and into the tunnel.

This was pretty great:

Boston and Clark should form quite a duo in the WNBA. Fans loved seeing that moment between the two:

Clark's home opener is Thursday night when the Fever host the New York Liberty.
