DeAndre Jordan played 34 minutes in a loss against the Nuggets on Monday, finishing with 12 points on 4-of-7 from the field to go 4-of-5 from the line, 11 boards, three steals, one block and one turnover.
Jordan actually hit his free throws tonight and added three steals to his usual offering of efficient double-double lines. With Chris Paul and Blake Griffin out, you would hope that he carries more of an offensive load, but he isn’t that type of scoring threat. He should be grabbing more rebounds at least, but still there shouldn’t be any nitpicking with a line this helpful. Look for him to be more of a beast on the boards against the Pelicans on Wednesday.
