SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson gave the team a huge spark off the bench midway through the second quarter of Game 6.

Jordan Clarkson had it going by scoring 17 straight points for the Jazz to give them a double digit lead over the Los Angeles Clippers.

With their backs against the wall, Clarkson was rising to the occasion and giving the team a much needed spark.

His run started when Nicolas Batum fouled him on a three-point attempt. After making all three shots, Clarkson gave the Jazz a 46-40 lead with 7:17 remaining in the second quarter.

The Clippers missed a three-pointer before the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year drilled a three-pointer to give the Jazz a 49-40 advantage. LA missed again and Clarkson capitalized with a layup to put Utah up by 11 points. Batum threw down a dunk but Clarkson answered with another bucket.

Clarkson connected on a driving floater in the lane to give the Jazz a 55-42 lead with 5:25 remaining in the second quarter. He wasn’t done yet. The Clippers turned the ball over when Clarkson hit a 13-foot pullup shot. The run ended when he knocked down a three-pointer.

Clarkson scored all 21 of his points in the first half. Donovan Mitchell led the way with 22 points. Utah had a 72-50 lead at the half.
