Clark Steps Up for Short-handed Lakers

Earl Clark had his first good game with the Lakers and maybe the only memorable one of his four-year NBA career, setting personal bests with 22 points and 13 rebounds in a 108-105 loss Wednesday to the San Antonio Spurs.
Clark got 27 minutes of playing time because three guys ahead of him on the depth chart were injured (Howard, Pau Gasol,Jordan Hill).
“Hopefully we found something there,” said Coach Mike D’Antoni, who called Clark’s game “phenomenal.”
“I hope he surprised me. Otherwise, I’m an idiot for not playing him,” he said. “Anybody who plays that well deserves definitely a second, third, fourth look.”
