Caitlin Clark’s WNBA debut got off to a rocky start, but she still posted an impressive scoring total by the end of her first professional match.

The Sun claimed a dominant 92-71 win against Clark and the Fever in the season opener. For Connecticut, DeWanna Bonner led the way with 20 points as she moved into fifth place on the WNBA all-time scoring list. Alyssa Thomas recorded her WNBA-leading 12th career triple-double (13 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds), including the regular season and postseason.

Clark scored 20 points in her debut, tied with Bonner for the game high. But halfway through the game, the 22-year-old rookie seemed destined for a much worse day.

At halftime, the former Iowa phenom had scored just seven points. Although she added three three-pointers in the second half to increase her score, she also had ten turnovers, which tied for eighth most in one game in WNBA history.

The Sun looked too smooth in their opener, with contributions from virtually every player who took part in the game. The Fever, on the other hand, showed their growing pains in a scrappy match, which they need to clean up if they are to beat the Liberty on Thursday.

The Sporting News followed live updates and highlights from Clark’s debut in the Fever-Sun WNBA game.
