Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson had a night to remember on Sunday against the Philadelphia 76ers. Clarkson achieved a career-high of 30 points and added eight assists and six rebounds to his name in 34 minutes of action at Staples Center. Unfortunately, even a great performance from the 24-year-old wasn't enough for the Lakers to defeat Philly at home. Philadelphia earned a narrow win over the L.A. team 118-116.

Clarkson had the loss in mind

Without any doubt it can be said that it was a great day at the office for Clarkson, and he is not denying it. Still, he appeared to be ''humbled'' after the game and disappointed that his team did end on the losing side against Philly.

''I don't know if (it was the most complete game) of my career,'' Clarkson told a reporter, according to Spectrum Sports, when asked if it was the most complete game of his career. ''I played well tonight -- but we came up short. We definitely wanted to win that game.'' The Los Angeles Lakers now stand at 20 wins and 46 losses on the season.

Clarkson has caught fire recently

Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton praised Clarkson after the match against Philadelphia. The coach said that ''it was the game'' when the point guard found that ''perfect balance.'' Clarkson said he has been working to be where he is now. ''You know, its been a slow process, but it's coming,'' Clarkson said when asked what's been the process for him as he has been trying to figure out that puzzle.

''You know, I've been watching film and stuff, so just trying to figure it out. Just like I said in the last interview that I've kind of been in, you know, different roles in the past two years and even this year -- it's kind of a change for me.''
