Golf influencer Paige Spiranac was among those who watched Caitlin Clark and Angel Reese face off in their first WNBA matchup, but appeared dismayed by another Chicago Sky player's play late in the match .

Sky guard Chennedy Carter, who led the team with 18 points coming off the bench, took Clark to the floor in the third quarter.

Spiranac, a former college golf star who has amassed a huge following on social media, contributed to the piece.

“Imagine bringing millions of new fans to the game, which in turn will make each player more money and yet they treat you like this. A rising tide lifts all boats,” Spiranac wrote on X.

Spiranac was far from the only person to join a group of sports fans accusing WNBA players of being jealous of Clark.

Carter was asked about the tangle after the match but did not give an answer.

“I’m not answering any questions from Cailtin Clark,” she said.

Clark said Carter's move was not a “basketball play.”

The Fever still managed to pull out a 71-70 victory. Despite Carter's 18 points, it wasn't enough to earn a victory in Game 1 of the WNBA Commissioners Cup.

Clark finished with 11 points. She made her first two 3-pointers but missed her last seven.
