Jordan scored a game-high 20 points (8-10 FG, 4-7 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, a steal and a block in 30 minutes during Sunday's 98-97 loss to the Kings. After scoring just seven points Saturday to break his double-double streak, Jordan kicked off a new one Sunday. The 28-year-old center has now recorded double-digit boards in 13 of his last 14 games, and blocked at least one shot in 15 of his last 16.
Jordan contributed 14 points (6-6 FG, 2-4 FT), 18 rebounds, two blocks and one assist across 35 minutes during Thursday's 97-95 loss to the Mavericks. Despite opposing coach Rick Carlisle starting Nerlens Noel at center in an attempt to slow down Jordan, he still managed to snag 18 boards and didn't miss a shot on his way to 14 points. What Jordan lacks in free-throw percentage (49.0) and points per game (12.5), he makes up for in efficiency from the field -- knocking down 70.4 percent of his attempts. He should continue to garner 30 to 35 minutes per night and put up his season averages for the remainder of the season.
Jordan tallied 13 points (4-5 FG, 5-11 FT), 17 rebounds, two assists and one steal across 27 minutes during Saturday's 108-78 over the Cavaliers. Despite the Cavaliers being down two of their three best rebounders in Kevin Love (rest) and LeBron James (rest), 17 rebounds in just 27 minutes is an impressive feat for Jordan. Though his game-to-game production has been fairly inconsistent throughout the season, he should still be relied upon for his season averages of 12.5 points, 13.5 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks per game.
Jordan will start at center for Saturday's matchup against the Cavaliers. As expected, Jordan will rejoin the starting five after being absent for Thursday's game against the Nuggets for rest. He's averaging 14.5 points, 12.6 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks across 34.0 minutes per game since the All-Star break.
Jordan will not travel with the Clippers to Denver for Thursday's game against the Nuggets, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports. The Clippers are heading into the second game of a back-to-back set, so both Jordan and Blake Griffin are expected to head back to Los Angeles in anticipation of Saturday's home matchup with the Cavaliers. That's means neither will be available Thursday, which should leave the Clippers thin in the frontcourt. With the two aforementioned players out, guys like Marreese Speights and Brandon Bass should pick up a much bigger workload in the frontcourt.
