After making the free throw, Clarkson had 21 points and the Jazz trailed the Spurs 67-59 with 10 minutes left in the third quarter.

On the next possession, Clarkson went down the floor and nailed another three-pointer on the left angle to put the Jazz within five points with a little over 9 minutes remaining in the third quarter. Clarkson was up to 24 points. He scored 13 points in the first quarter.

Clarkson is expected to step up even more in the game against San Antonio with four starters out due to injury or rest. Mike Conley, Donovan Mitchell, Royce O’Neale and Rudy Gobert were listed as out for the game against the Spurs.

The Jazz started Emmanuel Mudiay at point guard, Joe Ingles at shooting guard, small forward was Miye Oni, Georges Niang was at power forward and Ed Davis at center.
