Indiana Fever star Caitlin Clark continues to make history.

On Friday, she led the Indiana Fever to an 85-83 win over the Washington Mystics in the Commissioner’s Cup, posting a historic stat line. Clark became the first WNBA player to record at least 30 points, seven three-pointers, eight rebounds, six assists and four steals in a game, according to StatMamba.

Clark shot 8-of-15 from the field and hit seven of 13 attempts from beyond the arc, tying a career-high.

Clark had a solid first half, recording 10 points, four assists, three rebounds and two steals. However, in the second half, she took over, scoring 20 points while notching five of her seven threes after halftime.

Friday was also a big night for 10-year veteran Erica Wheeler, who notched career point No. 2,500. She’s just the 114th player to accomplish the feat in WNBA history, according to Stathead.

The victory was only the third of the season for the Fever, but the tide might be turning. Following a 0-5 start, Indiana has won three of the last seven games and two of the previous three contests.

Meanwhile, Clark continues to show her impact on the sport. Due to high demand, the WNBA moved Friday’s game from the Entertainment & Sports Arena to Capital One Arena, where the Washington Capitals of the NHL and Washington Wizards of the NBA play home games.

A sellout crowd (20,333) flooded the arena, the largest WNBA attendance in 17 years, to see the Fever and Mystics, two teams who are a combined 3-20 on the season.
