It’s personal for DeAndre Jordan, Clippers

Recently, the talk of the Clippers’ defense has started with the almost fanatical way DeAndre Jordan has embraced his role as the defensive captain.
“It starts with our bigs. DJ and Blake (Griffin) have been amazing,” Coach Doc Rivers said. “DJ’s leadership defensively – It’s funny, he’s mad the most on defense now, which I love because he takes it so personal when anybody scores.
“Earlier in the year I thought he took it personally when his guy scored. Now he’s taking it personal if a guy’s making a 3 on the opposite side of the floor.
“That’s what you need to take scoring personal and I think our guys are starting to do that.”
