As Coach Mike D'Antoni and Pau Gasol snipe back and forth about starting, finishing and role, Earl Clark has emerged as a productive starter for the Lakers.
In 10 starts for the Lakers, Clark is averaging 10.1 points and 8.6 rebounds while shooting 57.8% from three-point range.
It's his outside shooting that has impressed the most. On the season, he's hit 12 of 22 (54.5%) from behind the arc. That's quite a jump given that Clark didn't hit a single three-pointer in either of the last two seasons.
