he Indiana Fever are currently on a roll, setting a marked improvement on their early season form which had left fans very disappointed, not least in rookie arrival Caitlin Clark.

Caitlin Clark and her team secured their third straight win against the Washington Mystics on Wednesday night, bringing their season record to 6-10.

If the 2024 WNBA season ended today, the Fever would make the playoffs for the first time since 2016.

This recent success has left Fever head coach Christie Sides in a strong position, and she was quick to ensure her team realized just how pleased she was with them.

Alas, as is always the case in modern sport, the message didn’t stay private for long and has been leaked in the hours following the match.

“I love how we got it done!” Sides exclaimed, clapping enthusiastically.

“That’s all that matters.”

Sides is ready for her team to kick on

Sides faced significant criticism for the Fever’s slow start this season. However, she now has reason to celebrate, as shown by her heartfelt message to her players on Wednesday.

The Indiana Fever’s social media team captured video of Sides addressing the team in the locker room, and they were quick to post the video to the internet.

The entire Fever team then gathered in the middle of the locker room for a celebratory cheer before the video concluded.

Sides worried that she may lose her job given the poor start the team made to the WNBA campaign, however that is the pressure that comes when you are able to draft a player as talented as Caitlin Clark.

Getting to sign the best rookie on the market is a blessing, but it can be a coach killer, especially if the team doesn’t improve on their previous season… just ask Monty Williams.

The positive energy is palpable for the Fever right now, and they aim to continue their success on their upcoming road trip.
