Clippers rookie DeAndre Jordan said after his breakout 23-point, 12-rebound game against the Lakers whether he knew he had that kind of performance in him.
“I’m just as surprised as you all,” he said with a laugh.
Not everyone was so blase.
Jordan’s monster dunks even seem to have caught the eye of the league’s reigning MVP.
“He has a lot of talent man,” Kobe Bryant said after the game. “He’s just got to keep on working hard to improve the other aspects of his game, shooting in particular. He’s got a lot of potential.”
