Warriors' Ian Clark: Explodes for career-high 36 points

Clark tallied 36 points (15-21 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 3-6 FT), five rebounds and one steal over 34 minutes in Saturday's 107-85 loss to the Spurs.

On a night when the Warriors were sporting a preseason-type lineup with three starters and Andre Iguodala sitting for rest, Clark parlayed his extra run into a career-high point total. The four-year veteran came off the bench, but played a starter's allotment of minutes and was locked in from all over the court while notching his third performance with better than 70 percent shooting in the last four games. Clark also had a pair of 10-point efforts in the three games prior, and as Saturday's game demonstrated, he's capable of lighting up the scoreboard with extended minutes. However, given the Warriors' starting backcourt, the reality is that he's typically destined for minutes in the teens on the majority of nights, with a bit of an uptick during blowouts.
