Chris Paul furious with DeAndre Jordan for not shooting ball (Video)
A brain fart by DeAndre Jordan at the end of regulation Wednesday in the Clippers-Blazers game cost his team a chance at a win and left teammate Chris Paul furious with him.
The game was tied at 87 and the Clippers had the ball. CP3 drove towards the basket and missed a runner with about a second left, right as the shot clock was expiring. Jordan got the offensive rebound with 0.7 seconds left, but he was confused after seeing the lights turn on above the basket, thinking that signified the end of the game. It was actually just the shot clock expiring, meaning Jordan missed an opportunity for a put-back.
Check out how CP3 freaked out:
Paul, who had 36 points and 12 assists, had every reason to be upset with Jordan for his lack of awareness; the Clippers ended up losing 98-93 in overtime.
I’m not sure I’ll be able to get over CP3’s face here:
