Reigning NBA Sixth Man of the Year Jordan Clarkson went off for a career-high 45 points in his Utah Jazz’s 134-125 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Saturday (Sunday Manila time).
The Filipino-American basketball star made 15-of-21 of his field goals off the bench, including seven triples as he powered the fourth ranked Western Conference squad to a hard-earned win.
In the process, Clarkson also set a couple of interesting milestones, as he became the highest Utah Jazz single game bench scorer in history.
The 29-year-old guard also became the first player since Mike Woodson in 1983 to score at least 45 points and shoot 70 percent from the field.
Clarkson edged the Kings’ De’Aaron Fox, who had himself a magnificent night with 41 points.
