Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson scored a career-high 33 points on 13-of-20 shooting with eight 3-pointers, five assists and two rebounds in 47 minutes in a 130-117 overtime win over the Minnesota Wolves on Friday. What It Means: Clarkson has been a rollercoaster with his shooting this season but he was challenged by head coach Luke Walton to impact the game in other ways and it appears that helped his confidence with his shot as well. Clarkson will look to have another big game Sunday against the Trail Blazers. Clarkson is averaging 14.8 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.4...

Los Angeles Lakers point guard D'Angelo Russell will be asked to spend more time playing off-ball over the remainder of the season. What It Means: Head coach Luke Walton is using the remainder of the Lakers' lost season to evaluate the young talent on the team, and this will be part of that evaluation. Russell scored a career-high 40 points starting at shooting guard while Jordan Clarkson manned the point on Sunday, and he will likely continue to see plenty of minutes alongside Clarkson in the back-court moving forward. Russell has averaged 15.3 points, 3.6 rebounds, 4.7...

Jordan Clarkson's extra shooting practice pays off with career highs against Timberwolves

While Jordan Clarkson was in the middle of a one-for-nine shooting performance Tuesday against the Clippers, he wandered by the bench and told his coach his shot was broken. For the next two days, Clarkson spent extra time shooting, trying to fix it. That paid off Friday during the Lakers 130-119...

The Lakers beat the Timberwolves, 130-119, handing Minnesota its fifth consecutive loss. Jordan Clarkson set career highs in points (35) and three-pointers...

Lakers Podcast: What is Jordan Clarkson’s ceiling?

Lakers Podcast: What is Jordan Clarkson’s ceiling?

He’s arguably as important as he is polarizing. A few weeks back, we discussed D’Angelo Russell as in-depth as just about anyone has to this point. Jordan Clarkson has become about as polarizing as anyone on the Los Angeles Lakers, so we decided to give him similar treatment. Greatness ensued. Or something. To start the show, we thought it was important to provide context based on where he’s come from. We’ve all heard about Clarkson’s underdog story having turned out really well (to the tune of $50 million), but there’s a lot more to discuss there. Then, we covered what his...

Luke Walton wants Jordan Clarkson to do more even when he isn’t scoring

Luke Walton wants Jordan Clarkson to do more even when he isn’t scoring

Seems like that isn’t too much to ask. Jordan Clarkson is far from the first player in sports history to let their scoring dictate how they play in other facets of the game, but Luke Walton thinks it’s time to move on from the habit. Clarkson possesses the physical tools to be at least a decent defender on the ball. Off it, his quickness should put him in position to nab a steal or two. His vertical athleticism should help him challenge for the occasional rebound in traffic. Walton has empowered him lately to help his teammates’ scoring. For Clarkson it pretty much comes down to...

Five takeaways from the Lakers' 133-109 loss to the Clippers

The Clippers and Lakers are in vastly different places and began Tuesday night's game with very different goals. Here are five takeaways from the Lakers’ 133-109 loss to the Clippers. 1. Jordan Clarkson had probably his toughest outing since he began starting at point guard. He shot one for nine...

Lakers' Luke Walton wants Jordan Clarkson to find other ways to contribute on poor shooting nights

LOS ANGELES – In theory, the latest lineup switch should have invigorated Jordan Clarkson. After all, the third-year guard appears most comfortable whenever he has the ball in his hands. In the Lakers’ 133-109 loss to the Clippers on Tuesday at...

Lakers vs. Clippers Final Score: Lakers starters get blown away in 133-109 loss

Nothing to see here. The Los Angeles Lakers caught the Clippers on the second night of a back-to-back, but got blown to smithereens in a 133-109 blowout. They went into halftime down 70-30, and it as such a poor defensive effort head coach Luke Walton sent the entire starting lineup to the bench to start the third quarter. These postgame quotes are going to be fascinating. The game that played out? Not so much. Jordan Clarkson had a terrible game, putting up a -33 while on the court ... in the first half alone. He ended the night making just one of his nine field goal attempts. Ingram had...

Los Angeles Lakers Encouraged By D’Angelo Russell’s play At Shooting Guard

Los Angeles Lakers Encouraged By D’Angelo Russell’s play At Shooting Guard

With the Los Angeles Lakers trekking through the final stretch of another disappointing season, first-year head coach Luke Walton has taken this opportunity to further evaluate the younger talent on the roster. Much of this focus has been on the play of second-year guard D’Angelo Russell. It has been an interesting last couple of weeks for Russell having seen his role with the team see some major changes. Walton had benched him last week in favor of third-year guard Jordan Clarkson to see what he can do with the point guard duties in the starting lineup. This move to the bench had also...

Los Angeles Lakers like what they see with D'Angelo Russell at shooting guard

The lineup the Lakers tried Sunday night is one they’ll continue to use until further notice. It’s the one with D’Angelo Russell starting at shooting guard and Jordan Clarkson at the point. “We’re still trying to evaluate and see some things,” Coach Luke Walton said. “With the starting group,...

Lakers will ask D'Angelo Russell to play off-ball more

Los Angeles Lakers point guard D'Angelo Russell will be asked to spend more time playing off-ball over the remainder of the season.

Russell scored a career-high 40 points starting at shooting guard while Jordan Clarkson manned the point on Sunday, and he will likely continue to see plenty of minutes alongside Clarkson in the back-court moving forward.

Lakers News: Luke Walton commits to D’Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson backcourt ‘going forward’

This is what we should want to hear. D’Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson probably entered this year thinking it would take fewer than 70 games to be featured in the Los Angeles Lakers’ starting backcourt. After seeing the combination work as well as it did Sunday night against the NBA’s defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers, fans can probably look forward to a longer look at those two starting in the final dozen games. Finally. Russell finished Sunday night with a career high 40 points on only 22 shots and six assists. Clarkson wound up with 19 points on 18 shots and six assists...

Lakers Podcast: Why did it take so long for D’Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson to start together?

We discussed all the latest news around Los Angeles, including their big starting lineup change. The Los Angeles Lakers may have lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers Sunday, but the story of the game (and the weekend) was undoubtedly the superlative play of D’Angelo Russell. The Lakers young guard made his triumphant 40-point return to the team’s starting lineup alongside Jordan Clarkson, and it left hosts Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin with just one question: Why did it take so long? But first, Harrison and Anthony discussed the Lakers-Bucks fight, Draymond Green’s comments on Russell,...

Lakers vs. Cavaliers Final Score: D’Angelo Russell drops 40 but Lakers lose 125-120

D’Lo went off but Kyrie wasn’t having it. The Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers in a close 125-120 game, but really the Lakers won no matter what that final score tells you. Not only did D’Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson start together for the first time this season, Russell flourished after going through his stint off the bench. Russell snapped with the starting spot bouncing back his way, dropping a career-high 40 points and looking great while doing so. D’Angelo was feeling it, draining seven of his 12 attempts from deep. The funny thing about it is his...
