The rivalry has played into the lates State Farm Insurance ad “Trees.” The Clippers’ Paul and center DeAndre Jordan can be seen watching game film of Portland guards Lillard and CJ McCollum from last season’s playoffs, of which the Blazers defeated LA in six games during the opening round. As the Clipper teammates break-down film, Paul notes, “These two could be a problem. They can hit from anywhere!.” To which Jordan responds, “They’re going down!.” “We’ve got a a plan for them,” Paul quips back. The ad then cuts to Paul and Jordan, along with a State Farm agent, repeating the script verbatim as two trees fall over to smash a luxury SUV.
“I feel like sometimes we’re a better road team than we are a home team, and that’s not good,” center DeAndre Jordan said. “I mean it’s good, but we want to be a great team at home and a really, really, really good team on the road. We need to figure out how to transition that, and we’ll be fine, but we’ve got to pick it up at home.” “I feel like when we’re at home, we rely on our crowd, we rely on, ‘OK, we’re at home.’ But (when) we’re on the road, we know it’s us against everybody else in this arena, so that’s more motivation, more fire, I guess. So, we’ve got to find that same fire at home.”
While Stephen Curry scares defenses 25 feet from the hoop, one of the league’s best centers, the Los Angeles Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan, recently talked about whether his position would soon be extinct. More and more, players who can do little more than shoot have teams pining for their talent. Last season, teams averaged 24.1 three-point attempts a game, compared with 2.8 when the line debuted in the 1979-80 season. “With the way the game is trending, every team needs a three-point threat,” Los Angeles Lakers director of player personnel Ryan West told USA TODAY Sports.
