DeAndre Jordan playing with more confidence
He took only eight shots against the Oklahoma City Thunder Wednesday night, but Clippers center DeAndre Jordan made those count in a big way.
Perhaps more important, Jordan showed himself and his teammates during the overtime loss to the Thunder that he is taking the next step in his progression.
Jordan made four of the eight shots he took, but he made both of his field goals in the overtime period and a free throw when the game still hung in the balance.
It seemed clear that Jordan is gaining confidence in his game.
"I'm comfortable down there in the low post," Jordan said. "When your teammates trust you with the ball and to make the right basketball play, that makes you more confident."
