Clarkson registered 16 points (6-17 FG, 4-12 3Pt), seven rebounds and four assists across 28 minutes off the bench in Friday's win over the Hawks.
Clarkson has been making a huge impact off the bench for the Jazz, and it wouldn't be a stretch to consider him as Utah's second-best or third-best scoring option. He has scored 15 or more points in five straight games already and has reached that feat in all but three of his appearances to date. He is averaging 17.1 points per game in 12 games off the bench in 2020-21.
Clarkson scored 21 points (8-14 FG, 5-9 3Pt) while adding eight rebounds, four assists and two steals in 28 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 117-87 win over the Cavaliers.
The eight boards were a season high for the veteran bench weapon, who scored at least 12 points for the sixth straight game. Clarkson's efforts on the glass have been impressive overall, and he's averaging a career-high 4.5 rebounds a game to begin the season -- a strong showing in the category for a player who's posted a mark better than 3.3 only once before in his career.
Clarkson dropped 26 points (10-20 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 1-1 FT) along with six rebounds, two assists and one block in 35 minutes off the bench in the Jazz's 131-118 victory over the Bucks on Friday.
Clarkson saw the court very early on after Donovan Mitchell picked up his second foul less than four minutes into the game, and the dropped 23 of his 26 points in the first half. Clarkson has now attempted double-digit shots in eight of nine games, shooting better than 50 percent in five of those games.
Clarkson scored a team-high 19 points (7-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding three rebounds, two assists and a steal in 25 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 112-100 loss to the Knicks.
The 28-year-old continues to anchor the second unit for the Jazz, and Clarkson has scored in double digits in seven of eight games to begin the season while draining multiple threes in every contest. He's also on pace for career highs in both FG percentage (49.5 percent) and FT percentage (92.3 percent), giving him extra value in roto formats as long as he stays hot.
Clarkson posted 18 points (8-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and two steals across 23 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 130-109 win over the Spurs.
Clarkson is yet to start a game for the Jazz this season, but that hasn't stopped him from being a reliable scoring force on a nightly basis. The former Lakers guard has scored in double digits in all but one of his appearances this season, and he has reached the 15-point plateau in four of his six games to date as well.
Clarkson totaled nine points (3-7 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block over 21 minutes in Friday's 106-100 win over the Clippers.
Clarkson has had consistent playing time despite coming off the bench in each of the first five games of the season. However, he was held to a single-digit scoring total for the first time this year during Friday's win. He's averaging 15.0 points and 4.8 rebounds over 22.2 minutes per contest to begin the year.
Clarkson produced 23 points (8-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT) and three rebounds across 23 minutes in Saturday's 116-111 loss to the Timberwolves.
Clarkson performed well off the bench for a second consecutive game. Since arriving in Salt Lake City, the former Laker and Cavalier has served as an offensive spark plug with the second unit, and he can inflict damage quickly and decisively, especially from long range. Although he sometimes suffers from a streaky shot, he's one of the best sixth men in the league at the moment.
Clarkson recorded 15 points (6-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt), seven rebounds, one assist and one block in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 120-100 win over the Trail Blazers.
Clarkson was Utah's leading scorer off the bench as the team made easy work of the Trail Blazers. He's not a great fantasy player due to his usual reliance on one category (scoring), but on the nights he's able to rebound or dish some assists, he's valuable in DFS.
Clarkson had 20 points (7-15 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, two steals and one assist in Thursday's preseason win over the Clippers.
The backup guard was quite efficient despite shooting more three-pointers than anyone else on his team. Clarkson will look to replicate that scoring prowess in what'll likely be his first full season at Utah.
Clarkson compiled 19 points (7-15 FG, 5-10 3PT) and three rebounds across 22 minutes in Saturday's 119-105 win over the Suns.
With Mike Conley (rest) out of the lineup, Clarkson came off the bench to direct a largely unchanged first-unit offense. The 13-year veteran provided several shots in the arm at key moments during the Jazz's playoff run. Clarkson will be the first man off the bench for the team-s second unit once again this season.
Clarkson has agreed to a four-year, $52 million contract with the Jazz, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Clarkson thrived in an instant-offense role off the bench after getting traded to Utah last season and the team clearly values him. He averaged 15.6 points and 2.2 triples across 24.7 minutes in 42 games with the team. He projects to play a very similar role with the team going forward.
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
Clarkson recorded 11 points (4-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one block in 24 minutes during Saturday's 110-94 loss to the Thunder.
Clarkson has been doing his best Bojan Bogdanovic (wrist) impression, firing off 17 shots in each of Utah's first two bubble games. He was much more effective in the re-opener, posting 23 points. While he shot well from three Saturday, he could not make anything from inside the arc and was clearly bothered by the strong defense of the Thunder.
Clarkson scored a team-high 23 points (8-17 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 6-7 FT) while adding five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 32 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 106-104 win over the Pelicans.
All three main members of the Utah backcourt hit for 20 or more points, but it was Clarkson that ended up leading the team in scoring. The veteran guard had trouble getting his shot to fall from beyond the arc but otherwise provided the kind of second-unit punch the Jazz expected from him when the team acquired him from the Cavs in December.
Clarkson scored 17 points (4-9 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 5-5 FT) while adding four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 26 minutes off the bench during Saturday's scrimmage against the Heat.
Despite the long layoff, Clarkson showed little rust Saturday and put up numbers remarkably similar to his production for the Jazz over 34 games after he was acquired from the Cavs. The veteran guard could be a key figure for Utah once play resumes, as the team looks to replace the scoring it will lose with Bojan Bogdanovic (wrist) sidelined.
Clarkson scored 14 points (5-14 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-3 FT) and added five rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 101-88 loss against the Suns.
Clarkson was a consistent weapon off the bench for the Jazz before play got suspended, and all signs indicate he should continue in that role when play resumes before the end of the month. He wasn't very accurate with his shooting, but that might not matter much as long as he keeps producing at a high rate.
