Started well, ended bad, just like with everyone else. He showed some flashes of good defense, scored some, showed some athleticism we have been lacking. The team definitely started the game running more than we probably ever have under 'Antoni, Nash was running the show and Clark had good energy.

he started with a ton of energy and it felt like he had more points than he did. but end of 2nd quarter and entire 2nd half was terrible energy wise.

Yeah this. He certainly wasn't horrible. The kid doesn't play ever, he came in and did a lot of good things in that first quarter.

Then by the middle of the 3rd the energy on the team evaporated somehow. Maybe not this kid's fault, he played better than I thought he would.

Awesome game from Clark. He worked really hard.

Yup replace Pau with em. Small sample size you say. PFFFFFF ive had a large enough sample size of Pau's game lately to know I don't want that. I want Clarks effort.

Great game by Clark tonight. Definitely the best game of his career.

Earl frickin' Clark....

Are you kidding me? This dude has been riding the bench? I really hope this wasn't just a one time thing. If he can give this to us consistently...man.

I think we found our back up for Artest. Now if Pringles will play him once D12 and Pau comes back....

This dude can score, defend, and rebound, he will get some playing minutes off the bench from the Lakers.

I don't see Ariza in him.

He's a better rebounder and a better shooter than Ariza ever was.

my favorite part of his performance was that from what i saw he played very intelligently. he didn't really try to force the issue, played with energy & focus on both ends, and took the chances that were there for him. gives me a lot of hope as far as being able to perform like this consistently

He's really long and quite athletic. Why are we not using him more? Yes, I know he can't play like this on a consistent basis, but still... he has a skillset that we lack.

I said in the preseason that I thought Clark would pan out to be a good pick up. Only one gamebut great to see. He hustles, lanky and athletic. Could make a great defender and anyoffense is just bonus

Clark got good length and is very long, poor man Lamar Odom perhaps

The play where he drove the lane but had enough awareness to avoid the charge call, and then made the little jumpshot...I thought, ok, this kid knows how to play under control.

D'Antoni just said they found something in Clark...so pretty sure his minutes will be going up from here on out.
