For Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson the main thing is being out there on the floor competing. The Filipino has had multiple roles so far this season in Los Angeles. After starting the most games off the bench, he has been promoted to the starting lineup in the last couple of games. Clarkson, who has been starting alongside guard D'Angelo Russell, insists that he knows what to do no matter to which role he has been assigned to.

''I'm comfortable just being on the floor,'' Clarkson told reporters when asked about his most comfortable role. ''You know, just try to impact the game anywhere I can.

Just keep the team play hard.''

The two have shown flashes at moments

Guards Jordan Clarkson and D'Angelo Russell have had their moments together in the starting unit. Their best performance as a duo came against the Cleveland Cavaliers on March 19th. Russell scored 40 points while Clarkson added 19 points, and both dished out six assists each.

Most recently, the pair had a good outing on Tuesday against the Washington Wizards -- Russell scored 28 points and Clarkson collected 22. The two scored 50 points combine against the Minnesota Timberwolves as well. However, this is an experiment, and should it turn out that those two guards can play together -- the Los Angeles Lakers could opt to use that starting backcourt going forward.

'Russell does the job'

Filipino Jordan Clarkson says his Los Angeles Lakers teammate D'Angelo Russell has been doing so much of good lately. 21-year-old Russell is in a good form, averaging 19.1 points to go along 4.6 assists in the last 10 games, according to ESPN. As already mentioned above, he had a great performance against Cleveland, when he scored a career-high of 40 points in a game.

But Clarkson insists that the second overall pick of the 2015 NBA draft is doing more than just scoring.

''He is doing really well,'' Clarkson said of Russell. ''He is shooting the ball, making plays for others, rebounding...you know playing well on both ends for us.''
