Filipino-American rookie Jordan Clarkson tipped in a miss by fellow rookie Julius Randle to lift the Los Angeles Lakers to an 89-88 win over the Golden State Warriors in overtime in a Summer League game in Las Vegas.

The Warriors pulled ahead, 88-87, with 6.1 seconds left in overtime after a Jrue Holiday jumper.

Randle, the seventh overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, misfired on a potential game-winning baseline jump shot but Clarkson was in the right place at the right time and tipped the ball in for the win.

Clarkson, who was acquired by the Lakers on draft day from the Washington Wizards, finished with a team-high 19 points and seven rebounds for another solid outing.

Randle had 14 points, and two other Laker starters finished in double-digits.

Holiday led all scorers with 26 points.
