While Breanna Stewart led the team in scoring with 24, Jonquel Jones recorded a double-double for New York with 14 points and 12 rebounds. This made Clark’s 22-point performance, which marked her personal career-high, all but meaningless. Clark also contributed seven assists and six rebounds in the loss. After making just eight three-pointers in Thursday’s victory in Indianapolis, New York (3-0) found its outside game to the tune of 15 in the early back-to-back sweep of the Fever. At Gainbridge Fieldhouse, New York shot 8 of 27 from long range, but in the first half, they struck 12 of 18, creating WNBA history. All five of the starting New Yorkers—Jones, Stewart, Sabrina Ionescu, and Betnijah—were from New York.
