Jordan Clarkson Sets Cavs Franchise Record in 1st Half vs. Clippers

Jordan Clarkson Cavs

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Jordan Clarkson etched his name into the team’s record book during the first half of the Cavaliers’ home game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night.

That took place when his second-quarter basket allowed him to pass Campy Russell for most points in a single season by a Cavs reserve.

Clarkson’s driving layup with 8:04 remaining before halftime allowed him to pass Russell’s previous record of 1,210. Russell’s mark was achieved during his second season with the team, the 1975-76 campaign. Most Cavs fans will recognize that particular year, given that it marked the Miracle of Richfield season.

Entering Friday’s contest, Clarkson was averaging 16.9 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists on the season. He was acquired in February 2018 as part of a deal that also brought Larry Nance Jr. to the Cavaliers.
