Clark was named the WNBA Rookie of the Month for May, becoming the third player in Fever history to receive the honor alongside Boston and Natalie Achonwa. Clark’s stats through the first month of the season include leading all 2024 rookies in scoring with 17.6 points per game, field goals made (46), three-point field goals made (24), free throws made (42), assists (6.6 per game) and minutes played (33 per game).

Among all players in May, Clark tied with Phoenix Mercury veteran Diana Taurasi for first in three-point field goals made, ranked second in assists with 59, and tied for second in free throws made. Her performance places her alongside legends like Candace Parker and Sabrina Ionescu as one of the only players in WNBA history to have over 100 points, 30 rebounds, and 30 assists in their first six career games.

Notably, on May 28, Clark recorded her first 30-point game against the Los Angeles Sparks, marking the 27th time a Fever player has scored over 30 points in a regular-season game. She recorded another 30-point game against the Washington Mystics on June 7. Her 20 points in the season opener on May 14 against the Connecticut Sun was the second-most by a Fever rookie in a debut game, behind only Tamika Catchings.
