Caitlin Clark leads Indiana Fever past Chicago Sky 91-83 despite Angle Reese's double-double

The Chicago Sky and the Indiana Fever have developed a growing rivalry in the WNBA this season, and tensions boiled over once again on Sunday.

The Fever came out on top, 91-83, despite a double-double performance from Angel Reese for the Sky.

Caitlin Clark, recently back from an MCL sprain, led her team to victory yet again, putting up 23 points, nine assists, and eight rebounds.

Clark's teammate, Aliyah Boston, also had a double-double with 19 points and 14 boards, and Kelsey Mitchell added 17 points.

The Fever took a 2-0 lead in the season series between the two teams.

Despite the on-court rivalry, the two squads showed some love ahead of the game, posting on social media that they would be wearing special Warmup jackets provided by the Indiana University Health system.

The jackets were lavender with special logos, commemorating the start of Pride Month.

In the opening quarter, the Sky jumped out to an early lead behind Marina Mabrey's 12 points. The Irish guard finished the game with 22 points, but it wasn't enough.

Reese was a force in the low post, grabbing 13 rebounds, but her shooting touch wasn't there, as she made just four of her 18 shots from the field.

The highlight of the game came when Clark hit a deep three-pointer midway through the third quarter, giving the Fever a 58-57 lead. From there, Indiana never looked back, sealing the deal with a 5-for-5 performance from the free-throw line in the final minutes.

The Sky will look to bounce back on Thursday when they host the Dallas Wings at home, while the Fever will welcome the Washington Mystics on Wednesday.

This growing WNBA rivalry will likely continue to heat up with the next matchup between these two teams on June 29 in Chicago.
