Video: Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan gets ‘Los Angeles’ ripped off his jersey
Center DeAndre Jordan gave the Clippers the shirt off his back during a 94-83 win at Philadelphia on Monday night.
Early in the first quarter, Jordan and Sixers guard Tony Wroten became entangled as they battled for rebounding position. The 6-foot-5 Wroten ripped in vain at Jordan’s jersey as he attempted to keep the big man off the offensive glass. Wroten’s tug completely tore off the cursive “Los Angeles” that was stitched to the front of Jordan’s uniform.

Play continued until Jordan and the Clippers realized what had happened, and thankfully L.A. had a replacement jersey on hand to make up for the wardrobe malfunction. Plenty of laughs ensued as the game stopped for Jordan to switch out the busted top for a fresh new one.
You can’t really blame Wroten for trying anything and everything. Jordan dominated the glass on Monday, registering a season-high 21 rebounds, just one off his career high. Jordan added 11 points (on 5-for-7 shooting).
Blake Griffin led the Clippers with 26 points (on 9-for-14 shooting) and eight rebounds. Chris Paul added 25 points (on 10-for-18 shooting) and 13 assists as the Clippers improved to 14-8.
Evan Turner finished with 25 points (on 11-for-23 shooting), eight rebounds and five assists for the Sixers, who fell to 7-15.
