Clarkson tallied 11 points (5-14 FG, 1-6 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and two steals across 29 minutes in Sunday's 119-107 loss to the Nuggets. Clarkson couldn't get his long-range shots to fall on Sunday, and poor shot selection resulted in a tepid stat line. Clarkson's contributions from the second unit have been crucial to Utah's success, but his production is subject to considerable variance, especially in this series. While the guard has upside as a scorer, his bubble performances range from six to 26 points, and his success is usually tied to his fortunes from beyond the arc.
Clarkson contributed 26 points (9-18 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 124-105 Game 2 win over the Nuggets. Clarkson has combined for 44 points through the first two playoff games while chipping in more than usual in the rebounding and assist columns. He logged 39 minutes in Monday's Game 1 overtime loss and can be expected to continue attacking a Denver defense that's not providing much resistance these days.
Clarkson had 18 points (6-9 FG 5-7 3PT, 1-1 FT) in Monday's loss to Dallas. Clarkson played only 14 minutes, but he was red-hot in that time, hitting five of his seven three-point attempts and adding three rebounds to his final line.
Clarkson will draw the start Tuesday against Dallas, Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News reports. With Donovan Mitchell (leg) sitting out, the Jazz needed a replacement at shooting guard, and they'll roll with Clarkson. The Missouri product is coming off of a 19-point performance in Saturday's loss to Denver, which marked his fifth time in double-figures in six Orlando games.
Clarkson posted 24 points (8-18 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists and two rebounds in 24 minutes during Friday's 119-111 loss to the Spurs. Clarkson's 24 were a team high, with all the Jazz starters out besides Joe Ingles. It's his second performance in the bubble with 20-plus points, and it's his 19th effort this season overall with at least 20 points. Even once the starters are back, Clarkson should maintain a strong sixth-man role due to the absence of Bojan Bogdanovic
