DeAndre Jordan double-doubles w/ five blocks (Apr 19 12:00 ET )
DeAndre Jordan blocked five shots with 11 points and 14 rebounds on Saturday, but he turned the ball over seven times and missed 5-of-8 free throws in L.A.'s Game 1 defeat.
DeAndre Jordan started on Wednesday, but played just one minute before leaving with no stats.
The Scoop:He's not hurt. He just wanted to say he started all 82 games this season, as well as keep his streak of 241 straight games played alive. He's good to go for the playoffs, along with Blake Griffin and the rest of the Clippers. They'll face the Warriors in Round 1.
DENVER -- Guard Jordan Crawford scored a career-high 41 points and the Golden State Warriors beat the Denver Nuggets 116-112 to enter the playoffs on a winning note. Forward Harrison Barnes also had a career high with 30 for the Warriors, whose postseason fate was determined when Oklahoma City edged Detroit for the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference. Golden State, the No. 6 seed, will open the first round in Los Angeles on Saturday against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Warriors (51-31) finished 2-2 against L.A., but the Warriors will be without center Andrew Bogut, making it tougher to go against Clippers' big men Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan.
DeAndre Jordan had 13 points, six rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Tuesday's win, and will be getting some votes for the Defensive Player of the Year Award.
The Scoop:He was a pleasant fantasy surprise this season, but could take it easy on Wednesday night. The Clippers can get the No. 2 seed with a win and a Thunder loss, but OKC tips off at 8 p.m. ET in Detroit. If they're up big, or have already won when LAC tips off, the Clippers will literally have nothing to play for. And we're guessing Doc Rivers will give his big names a rest if that's the case, and possibly even if the Thunder lose.
