With Blake Griffin going down 6 minutes into the game, DeAndre Jordan had to pick up the slack against the Houston Rockets and he did. Jordan dominated the Rockets with 20 points 12 rebounds 6 blocks and dunks galore. The only flaw in his line was the missed shots at the free throw line (6-14).
Flashback: It was at the John Lucas Houston Lockout game back in 2011 when we first got a good look at how impressive and athletic DeAndre Jordan was and knew it was just a matter of a time until he was putting on dunk exhibitions in NBA games like he was in this exhibition game.
