Jason Sudeikis was apparently criticized by Betty Thompson for dropping out at the last minute.

Speaking of the game, this is the third meeting between Indiana and Chicago this season. In their first meeting, Indiana and Clark defeated Chicago by a single point. In their second meeting, which saw Clark score 23 points, Indiana easily prevailed. These were fierce matches that soon rose to prominence as the most predictable rivalry in the league.

As a result of their purposeful rough plays against Clark, Sky players Angel Reese and Chennedy Carter gained notoriety, paving the way for their teams’ primetime meeting in Game 3.

Not just Sudeikis was a well-known figure in the crowd at Wintrust Arena. Artist Chance the Rapper sat courtside to support Sudeikis, while superstar Jalen Brunson of the New York Knicks was also present for the star-studded game.

Even though his favourite ball player lost, the actor nevertheless got his money’s worth. The Sky overcame a 23-point deficit in the second half to defeat the Fever, 88-87. Clark scored 17 points in 40 minutes of play.
