The Indiana Fever vs Seattle Storm game on Wednesday night set a record attendance of 18,343, largely due to the presence of Caitlin Clark and Nika Mühl's debut. This was a significant turnout considering both teams are among the weakest in the league.

The Storm narrowly secured an 85-83 victory in a thrilling finish. Clark's two free throws cut the Seattle lead to one, but the Storm then committed a turnover on the inbounds play.

With two seconds left and a chance to win, Clark lost the ball, and Nneka Ogwumike sealed the game for the Storm after splitting her free throws.

In the third quarter, the Fever achieved a four-point lead, their largest in the game, by outscoring the Storm 20-14. However, the Storm won the fourth quarter 27-23 to secure the victory.
