“He scares the hell out of guys and alters shots and he makes guys think about coming into the middle” said Coach Byron Scott about DeAndre Jordan after the Lakers lost by only 5 to the Clippers on Tuesday.
One player who wasn’t afraid of taking it to the potential Defensive Player of the Year was March’s rookie of the month, Jordan Clarkson, who had a team-high 20 points and 6 assists. The play i’m referring came in the 2nd quarter when DeAndre took the challenge of guarding Clarkson one on one. Clarkson gave him a couple of shake and bake moves before hitting a tough layup with the foul by DJ.
Jeremy Lin also challenged Jordan earlier in the game and the results weren’t as good for Lin.
