If this Tuesday evening was mainly marked by the meeting between the Nuggets and the Timberwolves, an anthology series in the NBA, the debut of Caitlin Clark was also followed. Unfortunately, she broke a record for nullity, about which she spoke honestly.

The latter had to be content with 16 points and 7 assists at 31% shooting success. She’s on target.

From this response, it’s pretty obvious that Caitlin Clark was nervous entering the field on Tuesday and that it may take time for her to adapt to this new style of play and the pressure that will put her surrounded…
