Indiana Fever rookie Caitlin Clark had a true "Welcome to the WNBA" moment during Saturday's game against the New York Liberty.

Clark, who was attempting to get back on defense, got turned around and ran right into a screen being set by Liberty center Breanna Stewart.

Here's the clip of Clark, who took quite the shot on the clean pick set by Stewart:

WNBA fans couldn't believe their eyes:

Clark and the Fever lost 91–80 to drop to 0-3 on the season. The Indiana rookie posted her most efficient game yet at the WNBA level, scoring 22 points on 9-of-17 shooting, including a 4-of-10 mark from three-point range.

The Fever are back in action on Monday night against the Connecticut Sun.
