Indiana Fever, Caitlin Clark to take on Seattle Storm in sold out game

SEATTLE - The Indiana Fever will be facing a critical test as they aim to shift their season's momentum with a road win against the Seattle Storm on Wednesday.

The sold out game is scheduled to tip off at 7 p.m. (PDT) on Wednesday, May 22 and can be seen on FOX 13+ (cable 110/ch. 22).

The Fever, still in search of their first win, are 0-4 both this season. On the other side, the Storm hold a record of 1-3 and have yet to win a game in their conference matchups. Indiana hopes to halt its four-game slide, whereas Seattle looks to leverage its home-court advantage in the upcoming matchup.

Despite a challenging previous season where Seattle went 4-16 at home and 11-29 overall, the Storm's scoring prowess was evident, averaging 78.8 points per game while shooting 41 % from the field and 35.2% from beyond the arc. Indiana, while facing their own struggles on the road, with a 7-13 away record last year, managed to average 81 points per game.

On Monday, the New York Liberty continued their strong start to the season by defeating the Seattle Storm with a score of 74-63, marking their first 4-0 start in 17 years. Jewell Loyd led Seattle with 13 points and nine rebounds.

Fans are also eagerly watching Indiana Fever's rookie Caitlin Clark, who has shown promise and is adjusting to the professional level. Her starter performance boasts an average of 17 points, 5.7 assists, and 4.3 rebounds over her first three WNBA games, positioning her among top league talents in history for her rookie numbers.

While her shooting percentage stands at 40%, down from her final college season, she has racked up 21 turnovers.

The impact of Clark's presence is undeniable, with record attendance and TV ratings noting sellout games and unprecedented interest, as seen in the Connecticut Sun's home opener and the Liberty's ticket revenue – setting a WNBA record for the latter, according to an AP source.

Fans who didn't snag a ticket can watch the game on FOX 13+ (cable 110/ch. 22).
