The Clippers beat the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday, 102-87. Here are five takeaways from that game.
1. Hack-A-Jordan was taken to the next level
DeAndre Jordan shot a career-high 34 free throws against the Trail Blazers, making 12 of those attempts. From the 3:50 mark in the fourth quarter to the 2:18 mark, Jordan shot 18 free throws. Jordan, who is shooting 38.7% from the foul line this season, joked after the game that he got in some good practice Monday, though he acknowledged that shooting so many free throws is a bit of a nuisance.
Said Jordan: "It gets boring, and it makes me miss my reservations after the game."
