When Pau Gasol went down to a nasty concussion recently, it looked like the Lakers were in big trouble at power forward. But, 25-year old Earl Clark has really stepped up for the Lakers. In his last four games, Clark is averaging 12.8 points, 10.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.8 blocked shots per game. Clark has now played in 15 games (3 starts) overall this year for the Lakers and he is averaging 12.1 minutes, 4.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game. Coach D’Antoni has already stated that Clark will remain in the playing rotation when Pau Gasol returns to action in the likely near future.
