DeAndre Jordan made 7-of-10 from the field and 6-of-17 from the line for 20 points against the Spurs on Wednesday with 15 boards and three blocks in 44 minutes.
The Hack-A-Jordan was on tonight and it obviously worked for the Spurs. Jordan was struggling from the line so much that coach Doc Rivers had to take him out for a little while. Expect the Spurs to continue hacking Jordan throughout the series. Besides that, his defense has been great and he had a terrific block on Tim Duncan down the stretch, too. Apr 23 - 1:53 AM

DeAndre Jordan attempted 12 free throws vs. the Spurs on Sunday, making five of them to finish with nine points, 14 rebounds and four blocks in 38 minutes.

Gregg Popovich isn't shy about intentionally fouling Jordan -- he did it in February and Jordan finished just 10-of-28 at the line. The horrendous FT shooting is juxtaposed with his historically-excellent 71.0 percent field goal average this season, which ranks No. 2 all-time in the NBA behind only Wilt Chamberlain. He's a matchup problem for the Spurs, to say the least.

DeAndre Jordan expects to spend plenty of time at the free throw line against the Spurs, but said that he wasn't worried about it.

"It’s happened all season, and I feel like a lot of the games that they’ve done it we’ve won," Jordan said in regards to teams intentionally putting him at the foul line. "I’m not really worried about it. When it does happen, which I know it will, I’ll just go to the line and shoot the basketball. It’s not something that I’m dreading, but I’m prepared for it. I’m ready." Despite shooting just 39.7 percent from the line this season, the Clippers are 9-0 when he shoots at least 14 free throws.
Apr 19 - 11:19 AM

DeAndre Jordan made 6-of-7 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line for 16 points with 16 boards, three steals and two blocks.

He's not supposed to be this good from the line. In fact, he hasn't made over 70 percent from the line with at least three attempts in any game in 2015 before tonight. Jordan's fantasy owners shouldn't care by now thanks to the boards, field goal percentage and blocks.
Apr 12 - 1:11 AM

DeAndre Jordan reeled in 17 rebounds during Tuesday's narrow victory, adding eight points and three blocks without any assists or steals.

He made 4-of-5 field goals and missed both of his free throws in a perfectly customary performance. Jordan would be the favorite for Defensive Player of the Year if it weren't for a certain Spurs' small forward.
Apr 8 - 1:27 AM

DeAndre Jordan grabbed 22 boards against the Nuggets on Saturday, adding 14 points, two assists and three blocks in 34 minutes.

The Nuggets tested Jordan's free throw shooting in this one, but he responded by going a respectable 8-of-14 from the line. Jordan may always be a liability due to his foul shooting, but his elite production in boards, blocks and FG percentage makes him a very exciting player to own.
Apr 5 - 12:29 AM

DeAndre Jordan helped the Clippers amass a 53-40 rebounding advantage on Sunday, finishing with 15 points, 14 rebounds and one steal in just 29 minutes.

Jordan has double-doubles in 10 games this month and he continues to carry fantasy owners in multiple categories, while predictably decimating the FT percentage category (35.7 percent). He was an abysmal 3-of-15 at the line tonight, falling prey to the Celtics' hacking strategy. The league may consider tweaking the rules to curb intentional fouls next season, a development which would only heighten Jordan's fantasy appeal.

When asked if he would consider the Knicks when he is a free agent after the 2014-15 season, DeAndre Jordan told reporters that he loves New York City.

Before Knicks fans get all excited, it's worth pointing out that saying you love a city and signing with a team in that city are two different things. "I love New York City," Jordan said. "I love the city. But right now I’m not thinking of free agency. I’m thinking about finishing our season off strong and focusing on the playoffs.’’ Jordan added to the Clippers demolition of the Knicks with 14 points, 10 rebounds, and five blocks on Wednesday and should have no problem providing his fantasy owners with a strong finish to the 2014-15 season.

DeAndre Jordan finished Sunday's home victory with 12 points, 16 rebounds, one steal and three blocks in 37 minutes, while making 5-of-7 FGs and 2-of-7 FTs.

He was aided by the absence of Omer Asik during Sunday's game but this is just another day at the office for DeAndre. He leads the NBA in boards (14.8), ranks fourth in blocks (2.2) and is making an unheard-of 70.9 percent of his field goals -- the next-closest player is Mason Plumlee at 58.3 percent.
Mar 22 - 6:22 PM

The Hornets intentionally fouled DeAndre Jordan down the stretch on Tuesday, and he finished L.A.'s victory with 12 points (3-of-6 FGs, 6-of-12 FTs), 14 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block.

Jordan split three pairs of free throws down the stretch and Doc Rivers once again let him play through the Hack-a-Jordan strategy. It does his overall fantasy value no favors, but owners have obviously learned to live with the brutal percentages at this late stage in the season.
Mar 18 - 1:22 AM

DeAndre Jordan is not considering signing a one-year contract this offseason in free agency.

There had been some talk of Jordan going that route because of the expected salary cap spike, but he has no interest in that path. "I’m not going to be greedy and sign a one-year deal," Jordan said. "Nah. I’m just focused on getting it over with and focusing on playing again. I'm just trying to win here." Jordan is primed to cash in after his phenomenal season concludes.

DeAndre Jordan had his 15th consecutive game with 14+ rebounds on Sunday, pulling down 20 boards to go with five points, one assist, four blocks and four turnovers through 35 minutes of action.

The last player to grab 14+ rebounds in 15 straight games was Dennis Rodman, so Jordan has entered some elite company with this performance. He also shot 1-of-8 from the stripe, but if you drafted DeAndre, you did it with the intention of tanking free throws, so who really cares?
Mar 15 - 7:38 PM

DeAndre Jordan made the first 3-pointer of his career on Friday during a 129-99 loss, scoring 16 points with 18 boards, one assist and one steal in 36 minutes.

When the Clippers score their first points of the game on a DeAndre trey, you'd think they would have a good night. Well, that wasn't the case. Jordan actually takes some 3-pointers in warmups, but he's now 1-of-8 from deep in his career. He's probably not a threat for Kyle Korver's record for most consecutive games with a trey.
Mar 14 - 12:20 AM

DeAndre Jordan had 18 points and 17 rebounds on 3-of-7 shooting in Wednesday's win over the Thunder, but somehow didn't have a block or a steal.

It's very rare that Jordan shoots it this poorly from the floor, as he's shooting 72 percent on the season. He also hit just 12-of-22 free throws, which is not at all surprising. Jordan is having a dream season and you can go ahead and give him the Defensive Player of the Year Award, right now.
Mar 12 - 12:52 AM

DeAndre Jordan scored 20 points on 10-of-11 shooting with 17 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in the Clippers' 89-76 win over the Wolves on Monday.

Jordan took (and missed) just three free throws tonight and that's a huge win for owners on an otherwise stellar night. With free throws included, he has still returned top 25-30 value for owners and with Blake Griffin out these lines have become commonplace. J.J. Redick added 26 points with five boards and three treys in the win.
