After scoring a season high of 30 points in the game against Philadelphia, Jordan Clarkson (#6) got the starting nod from Head Coach Luke Walton.
This was announced during the pre-game press conference by Coach Walton and was later announced on the Team’s Official Twitter Account.
This was the first time that D’Angelo Russell has come off the bench for the Lakers this season. Russell has been playing well since the NBA All-Star Break, averaging 21.9 points, 5.1 assists and 2.3 steals.
