DeAndre Jordan racked up 11 points and eight rebounds with a steal and a block in 26 minutes of action on Sunday, making all four of his FG attempts.
Jordan's FT shooting was awful, to nobody's surprise, as he made just 3-of-9 freebies. He also picked up five fouls and this line underscores two reasons the Clippers splurged on Spencer Hawes this offseason -- he's insurance for when Jordan gets in foul trouble, and he gives L.A. a late-game option for offense/defense substitutions, having shot 78.3 percent from the FT line last year.

DeAndre Jordan blocked three shots in 24 minutes of action on Tuesday, adding six points on 3-of-3 shooting, zero assists, one steal, five turnovers and five personal fouls.

It wasn't a banner night for Jordan, who also missed both of his free throws. He was the second-heaviest anchor for FT percentage last season and the arrival of Spencer Hawes hasn't improved his outlook, but he remains a solid fantasy option thanks to reliable double-doubles with elite FG percentages and blocks.

Doc Rivers wants DeAndre Jordan to be "the best defensive player in the league" this season.

"He scored a lot of points last year," Rivers said. "He will get better because we asked him to work on things offensively, but he's our defensive captain and that will not change." If you can live with his atrocious FT shooting, he's a nice center to target at the start of the middle rounds. Jordan is eligible for a contract extension before the Oct. 31 deadline, but he insisted that he's "not thinking about it at all" during training camp.

DeAndre Jordan made all six shots from the field in Saturday's Game 7 win, finishing with 15 points, 18 boards, two assists and three blocks in 41 minutes.

He had a couple huge dunks late in this game and also just dominated on the glass. Jordan was leading all players in the postseason in contested rebounds per game and his timing was outstanding in pulling down boards this entire series. He averaged 15.1 boards per game in this series with 12.1 points, so coach Scott Brooks might have to figure out how to neutralize the big man in the next round.

DeAndre Jordan dominated during Tuesday's 113-103 win over the Warriors with 25 points, 18 boards, one steal and four blocks in 38 minutes.

He shot 8-of-10 from the field and 9-of-17 from the line for his highest scoring playoff game of his career. The Warriors were doing the Hack-A-Jordan down the stretch, but it didn't work with DJ going 6-of-8 in the fourth quarter. He became the first player since Tim Duncan in 2008 to have 25 points, 18 boards and four blocks in a playoff game. The Warriors not having Andrew Bogut definitely hurt them tonight and will have to go back to the drawing board before Thursday.

DeAndre Jordan did not score against the Warriors on Sunday with six boards and two blocks in 25 minutes.

The Clippers didn't have it today and only had three offensive rebounds in the first three quarters. Jordan only attempted one shot from the field and didn't even get to the line in the loss. He did suffer a very minor injury in this game, but that probably doesn't explain the sub-par line. If something comes up about an injury, we'll pass that info along.
Apr 27 - 6:30 PM

DeAndre Jordan grabbed 22 boards against the Warriors during Thursday's Game 3 98-96 win to go with 14 points and five blocks in 35 minutes.

His 22 boards and five blocks matched franchise playoff records and he has been unbelievable in the paint this season. Jordan had a stretch of 22 consecutive games with at least 10 boards and one block this season, which is the second longest in NBA history behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's 24. Chris Paul and Blake Griffin get a ton of press, but Jordan's improved play has gone a long way to the Clippers' success.
Apr 25 - 2:26 AM

DeAndre Jordan blocked five shots with 11 points and 14 rebounds on Saturday, but he turned the ball over seven times and missed 5-of-8 free throws in L.A.'s Game 1 defeat.

Blake Griffin was mired in early foul trouble so Jordan barely left the court in the first half, and to his credit he knocked down a pair of critical free throws late in the game after being intentionally fouled. With Andrew Bogut (ribs) unavailable for Golden State, Jordan should have a big first-round series against backup centers Jermaine O'Neal and Marreese Speights.
Apr 19 - 6:48 PM

DeAndre Jordan started on Wednesday, but played just one minute before leaving with no stats.

He's not hurt. He just wanted to say he started all 82 games this season, as well as keep his streak of 241 straight games played alive. He's good to go for the playoffs, along with Blake Griffin and the rest of the Clippers. They'll face the Warriors in Round 1.
Apr 17 - 1:14 AM

DeAndre Jordan is expected to start to keep his games played streak alive, but isn't expected to play a lot of minutes.

If you can still sub him out, it's probably a good idea.
Apr 16 - 9:13 PM

DeAndre Jordan had 13 points, six rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Tuesday's win, and will be getting some votes for the Defensive Player of the Year Award.

He was a pleasant fantasy surprise this season, but could take it easy on Wednesday night. The Clippers can get the No. 2 seed with a win and a Thunder loss, but OKC tips off at 8 p.m. ET in Detroit. If they're up big, or have already won when LAC tips off, the Clippers will literally have nothing to play for. And we're guessing Doc Rivers will give his big names a rest if that's the case, and possibly even if the Thunder lose.
Apr 16 - 1:46 AM

In a recent interview, coach Doc Rivers praised DeAndre Jordan's durability.

"He’s one of those guys that does have bangs and bruises and sprains," Rivers said. "He just keeps playing though them... He had a root canal one morning before practice and practiced the whole practice. It was great. He didn’t talk a lot which was even better. He didn’t complain once at the refs." DeAndre has truly blossomed under coach Doc Rivers, leading the league in total rebounds (1098) and sitting second in total blocks (201). That's pretty good for a guy that was drafted outside of the 10th round in most leagues.

DeAndre Jordan was intentionally fouled during Saturday's game vs. Sacramento, making 3-of-11 shots at the FT line to finish with 21 points, nine rebounds and seven blocks in 34 minutes of action.

He was 9-of-13 from the field to balance things out offensively, but the success of the Kings' strategy will not go unnoticed by the teams L.A. might face in the playoffs. He's shooting a mere 42.5 percent at the line since the All-Star break, as his fantasy owners know all too well.
Apr 12 - 7:11 PM

DeAndre Jordan scored 21 points during Thursday's 113-107 loss to the Mavericks, adding 15 boards, two steals and two blocks in 39 minutes.

He holds a lead in the chase for the rebounding crown by over 1.0 per game and he's also up 67.2 percent from the field, which crushes second-place Andre Drummond's 61.9 percent. His extra minutes this season have turned him into a fantasy monster.
Apr 4 - 2:08 AM

DeAndre Jordan grabbed a career-high 24 rebounds in the Clippers' road win over the Wolves, and also added 11 points and four blocks.

Jordan had five turnovers and hit just 3-of-8 shots from the line, but otherwise gobbled up all of the rebounds left free by Blake Griffin's absence. He's finishing up strong and has top 20-30 value on the year (9/8 cat), which means he'll be on a lot of championship squads. Chris Paul added 22 points, seven rebounds, nine assists, three steals, two threes and hit all eight of his freebies on the night.
