January 23rd NBA regular season, the Nets narrowly beat the Warriors 120-116 away.
After the game, Clarkston accepted an interview.
Speaking of winning against the Warriors, he said: “I mean that atmosphere is absolutely unbelievable! This is a victory of great significance, being able to maintain resilience at critical moments, and when they try to catch up, we can resist it.
Live and take the game.”
Talking about the opponent’s “shark hacking tactics” on himself, he said: “I definitely regard it as a challenge, I don’t care. If the opponent fouls me, it’s almost a show of respect, because they can’t stop us.
I take that challenge every time and honestly it keeps me going and it keeps me alive because when I start getting fouled I accept going back to the free throw line. If that’s what the team wants to do then I
(Will) accept that challenge. Yes, I will be ready.”
In this game, Clarkston played 36 minutes and 13 seconds, made 9 of 13 shots, 6 of 15 free throws, scored 24 points, 15 rebounds, 1 steal and 3 blocks, setting career highs in points and rebounds.
