I’ve got decent pace and like to come in and drive towards goal from the wings.‘I’m working on improving every aspect of my game, including shooting, heading and passing, but I’m concentrating most on my positioning and movement.‘When we play a three-man attack at Arsenal, how we all interact and move on the pitch is vital.

first_img“We’re kind of banged up,” Clarkson said after pouring in 33 points to go with seven rebounds and seven assists. “We didn’t have all our main guys and stuff. So I had to step up and I knew what I had to do tonight.”Odds were that the Lakers (16-29) would eventually win without Ball, having lost their first eight when he did not play. But few could have imagined it would come on a night like Friday, especially when the remaining Lakers shot just 2 for 14 from the foul line.They tied a franchise low for made free throws, and their 14.3 percent shooting was the worst in franchise history, shattering the 27.8 percent that was set in 2000.“It’s got to be the worst of all time from the free-throw line,” Coach Luke Walton said. “So it was all defense for us tonight.”The Pacers entered the night as the NBA’s fourth-best 3-point shooting team, knocking down 37.7 percent of their shots from deep this season.

(AP Photo/Kyusung Gong)ExpandLOS ANGELES — Jordan Clarkson stepped to the foul line with 4:06 remaining in a close game, took his dribbles and fired. The ball did something it had only done once before on Friday, and only at the hand of Clarkson.It went in.Clarkson completed a four-point play, giving the Lakers a seven-point lead as they went on to beat the Indiana Pacers 99-86.Clarkson had made only four shots in his previous two games, shooting 20 percent from the floor. On Friday, with Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope all ailing from various injuries, Clarkson erupted for his best game of the season. The Lakers, somehow, held them to 8 percent.Indiana made just 2 of 25 attempts from beyond the arc.“Maybe they got to get some work in, too,” Clarkson said. “Shoot, we got to get some work in, too, that free-throw line. It’s like a virus or something, man.”Clarkson was the only Lakers player to make a free throw, going 2 for 3. Kyle Kuzma missed three foul shots, while Julius Randle, Tyler Ennis, Larry Nance Jr. and Brook Lopez all missed two.A fourth-year guard who has become the team’s sparkplug off the bench, Clarkson has endured an up-and-down season. He has been the source of several trade rumors, with many speculating that the Lakers will look to clear the two years, $25 million remaining on his contract before the Feb. 8 deadline.“I’m just hooping to be honest with you,” Clarkson said. “If I’m here, I’m going to help them win games, impact how I can. If I’m not, it is what it is.”Clarkson scored 16 points in the fourth quarter, including a 3-pointer with 1:53 remaining that took a high bounce before falling through the net and, on the next possession, a breakaway layup that put the Lakers ahead 97-82.The layup capped a 15-2 run as the Lakers shut down Indiana down the stretch.“You win games in this league by being able to get stops,” Walton said.For Clarkson, the outburst marked a season high and was his fifth career 30-point performance.Victor Oladipo, expected to make his first All-Star team next month, led the Pacers with 25 points but was just 1 for 5 from beyond the arc. Center Domantas Sabonis added 15 points and 14 rebounds for Indiana.Walton stressed before the game that it would take a collective effort to win with so many players in street clothes, and that’s exactly what he got.Nance contributed 10 points and 11 rebounds while shooting a perfect 5 for 5 from the field.Ennis, starting in place of Ball, tallied a Lonzo-esque seven points, five rebounds and five assists. And Randle, one game after pulling down only one rebound in a lopsided loss in Oklahoma City, finished with 14 points and four rebounds in a rare start at center.🎥 Luke Walton talks about winning despite missing three starters, and the performances by Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle pic.twitter.com/XOCCGaOkgJ— Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) January 20, 2018 Brandon Ingram can lead Lakers by being ‘quiet alpha’ center_img 🎥 Jordan Clarkson got warmer as the game went on, finishing with 33 points, 7 boards, and 7 assists #LakersWin pic.twitter.com/9ZWjnv3NOB— Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) January 20, 2018 Julius Randle embraces coach’s challenge to be Lakers’ ‘bully’ Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
