Caitlin Clark tricked three defenders in a single sequence

In the final minutes of the game, Clark ran into the paint to puzzle her opponent but quickly came back outside the three-point line. Knowing her abilities from beyond the arc, two more defenders chased her in an attempt to stop her.

However, Clark only tried to get her teammate open by embarrassing her opponents. The play worked out perfectly as Kelsey Mitchell was left wide open near the corner and as she hit a flawless three-pointer. The play gave the Fever a five-point lead and helped secure the win.

Fans were in awe of Clark’s play and overall performance. The rookie sensation played the most minutes and scored the most points between both teams. The star broke records as she tied her career-high 30 points, eight rebounds, and six assists in the win.
