Welcome to the WNBA: Caitlin Clark's regular-season debut is anything but easy

UNCASVILLE, Conn. — Welcome to the WNBA. Don’t say Diana Taurasi didn’t try to warn everyone.

Caitlin Clark isn’t at Iowa anymore, even if the gameday vibes gave off that impression at Mohegan Sun Arena. And if the Connecticut Sun’s Alyssa Thomas didn’t make that clear in the first few minutes, DeWanna Bonner completed the task in the final ones.

The 15th-year veteran stomped and stood, chest out, for nearly a minute after drawing a three-point play to push the lead back to 16 and time dwindling for any Clark heroics.
