Matchups between the Indiana Fever vs Chicago Sky have generated massive TV ratings for the WNBA thanks to the rivalry of Angel Reese vs Caitlin Clark. Not only is it a draw on television, but fans are paying some huge prices to see the battles in person.

The Clark vs Reese rivalry goes back to the 2023 NCAA national championship game, when Reese’s LSU Tigers defeated Clark’s Iowa Hawkeyes and the LSU star made the “You can’t see me” gesture to Clark. A year later, Clark and the Hawkeyes got their revenge in a 94-87 win in the Elite Eight.

In two meetings this year, Clark’s Fever have come out on top. Not only is Indiana 2-0 against Chicago this season, but Clark has delivered two of her best performances. In those two meetings, Clark averaged 17 points, 8 rebounds and 7.5 assists. Now, the rookie sensations are poised to go head-to-head once more in June.

After facing the Atlanta Dream on Sunday night, the Fever get their rematch against the Sky on Sunday afternoon at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago. The Fever vs Sky matchup will be on ESPN, with millions of people tuned in for the game and thousands of others paying some huge prices for a seat at the game.
