No Lonzo Ball. No Brandon Ingram. No Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. No problem.
Jordan Clarkson led an improbable cast of characters to a 99-86 victory in front of a raucous Staples Center crowd on Friday night, snapping the Los Angeles Lakers’ 8-game losing streak without Ball. In this installment, I take a look at Clarkson’s phenomenal performance (33 points on 14-19 FGA, 7 assists, 7 rebounds), how the Lakers “weaked” the screen on Victor Oladipo and Darren Collison, and Alex Caruso’s productive minutes.
The goal of Laker Film Room is to provide Lakers fans with consistent, thoughtful content that helps you enjoy the game on a deeper level. I’m able to do that because I don’t work for a publication that demands that I cover the most sensational material, which typically gets the most views and clicks. As a result, I rely on the support of Lakers fans to help me produce my work. If you believe in what I do, please considering support my work on either Venmo or Patreon.
