The highly-anticipated clash between Caitlin Clark and wily veteran Diana Taurasi proved every bit worth the wait, as the Indiana Fever clinched a pulsating thriller to topple the Phoenix Mercury 88-82 in one of their most exciting games of this season so far.

Taurasi had huge praise for the Fever rookie after the game. The three-time WNBA champion praised the former Iowa star for how she has demonstrated growth and learned to handle adversity thus far in her rookie season.

“It’s amazing. What Caitlin’s been able to do in her short career so far has been nothing short of remarkable,” Taurasi said.

“The one thing that I really love about her…she’s put the work in. Even throughout her short WNBA career, it’s been a lot of pressure, a lot of things thrown at her and she keeps showing up and she keeps getting better every single game. So her future is super bright.”

Even with Taurasi’s scoring pile still piling up, this was Clark’s game. The torch might not be passed yet, but the message was made clear Sunday night, Caitlin Clark is here to stay and will carry on the legacy of a bright WNBA future.
