Clark mustered 31 points (11-21 FG, 7-15 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks across 36 minutes in the Pelicans' 133-129 win over the Kings on Sunday. Clark paced all scorers on the night while draining a career-best seven three-pointers. The veteran guard saw an expanded role due to several key absences, including those of Anthony Davis (back), Julius Randle (rest) and Frank Jackson (concussion). Clark has been a surprise late-season fantasy asset, averaging an outstanding 24.0 points (on 48.2 percent shooting, including 41.2 percent from distance), 4.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.0 block across three April contests. He should continue seeing run with the starting five over the last two games of the regular season.
Clark supplied 24 points (9-17 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block across 40 minutes in the Pelicans' 133-126 overtime loss to the Suns on Friday. Clark drew another start at shooting guard and parlayed it into his third straight double-digit scoring effort. The fifth-year guard was much more efficient than he'd been Wednesday against the Hornets, with his 57.1 percent success rate from three-point range particularly standing out. Clark has proven capable of solid production when given the minutes this season, and he could be in for extended run over the final two games of the campaign as well.
Clark totaled 17 points (7-18 FG, 3-12 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 115-109 loss to Charlotte. Clark played at least 31 minutes for the third straight game Wednesday, finishing with 17 points, albeit on inefficient shooting. In fact, he has shot less than 39 percent from the field in four consecutive games, negatively impacting the field-goal percentage of anyone that has streamed him in. He should continue to play big minutes with the Pelicans having nothing to play for but can't really be trusted for anything other than decent points on high volume shooting.
Clark played 31 minutes and finished with 11 points (5-15 FG, 1-6 3Pt), three assists and two rebounds Sunday in the Pelicans' 130-102 loss to the Lakers. With Frank Jackson (concussion) sidelined, Clark drew his second straight start at shooting guard and was again undone by poor shooting. He's converted only 7-of-26 shots from the field during the back-to-back starts and will likely see his playing time drop sharply if Jackson is able to make it back for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.
Clark will start at shooting guard Thursday against the Kings, Andrew Lopez of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. With Frank Jackson (concussion) out, Clark will make his first start of the year. When seeing at least 24 minutes, Clark is averaging 14.2 points, 3.0 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 27.7 minutes.
