DeAndre Jordan gets loose for the fast break slam (VIDEO)

Oct 13, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

DeAndre Jordan is going to be possibly the most important player for the Clippers this season. Doc Rivers has already tabbed him as being part of the team’s so-called Big Three along with Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, and Rivers has been grooming Jordan to use his athleticism to anchor the defense much in the same way that Kevin Garnett was able to in Boston during the Celtics’ recent run of success.

Some of that trademark athleticism was on display on the offensive end of the floor during the Clippers’ preseason contest against the Jazz, as Jordan leaked out on the break, received the pass in transition and found the rim without putting the ball on the floor before delivering the powerful finish.

Jordan finished 6-of-7 from the field with 14 points, seven rebounds and six blocked shots.

    As I understood he’s really focused on his defensive way and he’s more powerful at the mental way. The season is long and with full of up-and-downs but if he catches his stability he is going to be a DPOY contender

    DJ needs to do something he has never done before, get 10 boards a game.

      He’s done 10 rebounds before (his career high is 22 against the Wizards in 2013). What DeAndre needs to have is a triple double.

    If we can get 75% of the type of game DJ has shown thus far in the regular season the Clippers will truly be unstoppable.

    Go Clippers!!!!!!!!
