Much has been made of Caitlin Clark and her behavior during games, and now Sabrina Ionescu is catching heat because of it.

The New York Liberty guard is being put under a microscope after she visibly showed her frustration in a game against the Minnesota Lynx.

One 13-second video posted to X shows Sabrina Ionescu turning the ball over after dribbling to the basket, but then she turns to a teammate and starts yelling at her.

With 20 seconds to go in the game, Ionescu gets open for a three-pointer but then airballs as the team was down six.

The caption on the video mentions her temper and how Caitlin Clark would’ve been blasted if she had done something similar.

This is less about Sabrina Ionescu and more about Caitlin Clark and how she got blasted for showing frustration with her teammate Kristy Wallace during the Indiana Fever’s narrow 88-87 loss to the Chicago Sky.

Clark is seen calling for the ball, but Wallace takes a shot that ends up going in. However, Clark’s visible frustration does not end as she appeared to stare at her afterwards.

Clark’s anger likely has a lot to do with her leading the league in turnovers, which has a ton to do with her teammate’s inability to catch the basketball.

Sabrina Ionescu Further Became A Household Name After 3-Point Challenge Against Stephen Curry

New York Liberty guard Sabrina Ionescu was a known player in the WNBA, but she certainly gained a ton more notoriety after she competed against Curry in a 3-point shooting contest at NBA All-Star weekend.

Curry is a two-time winner of the NBA’s 3-point challenge, and Ionescu won the 3-point contest at the WNBA All-Star Game in Las Vegas.

Curry caught fire just in time during that matchup and defeated Sabrina Ionescu in the first-ever NBA vs. WNBA 3-Point Challenge, per ESPN.
