Jamal Crawford was in the middle of an interview after Monday night’s win when DeAndre Jordan decided to interrupt for just a few seconds — with a song about how Crawford should be the Sixth Man of the Year. Crawford, who seemed to be completely unfazed by his teammate’s interruption, wiped his face with a towel after Jordan’s song and answered the question. For The Win

The NBA All-Star starters were announced last week and only one Clippers player was voted in by the fans -- Blake Griffin. That means Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan were both passed over for that honor. Not to worry, Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said he's been making some phone calls to try to get the coaches to vote those guys in as reserves. When asked how those conversations go, Rivers smiled. "Well, there's some begging," he said. "I offer them food, drinks and all of that kind of stuff." Los Angeles Times

Does Jordan get too little credit? "He's going to get a max contract this summer," Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick said. "That's a lot of credit." Jordan's teammates showed him respect with their playfulness. Forward Matt Barnes wrapped a towel around Jordan's mouth during an on-court television interview after the game, and Redick couldn't resist quipping about a player who has made 39.9% of his free throws this season.

DeAndre Jordan has his All-Star weekend routine all figured out. He'll probably be relaxing somewhere next month while Clippers teammates Chris Paul and Blake Griffin take part in the festivities in New York. "Blake sends me pictures and FaceTimes me when he's there," Jordan joked Monday, referring to past experience during the NBA's midseason showcase. Los Angeles Times

A lot of guys try to downplay the weather factor. Are they fronting? DeAndre Jordan: I think so. I don’t want to be freezing every day. But if the team is great, then you have to make a choice. And they have heaters. I play for a great coach, a great point guard here, a great forward. You definitely look at things like that. The group of guys you have, you want to be able to be around when you’re not at practice and not at the games. You want to be around a lot of guys who have high character and are on the team for the same reasons. Sports Illustrated

How do you respond to outsiders who might look at the defensive numbers and the standings and wonder whether there’s something wrong? DeAndre Jordan: I hit them with the Aaron Rodgers. We can’t let people outside our core group of guys, our team, our coaches, anybody in that gym with us every day helping us become a better basketball club, we can’t listen to what outsiders say. Once you start doing that, you start thinking, "Is there something wrong with our team? Am I not getting the ball enough?" It just creates a cancer. Sports Illustrated

Hasn’t the world waited long enough for DeAndre Jordan in the Dunk Contest? DeAndre Jordan: I always think about the Dunk Contest. I want to be a Dunk Contest champion sometime in my career. But I’ve always told myself that I don’t want to do it until I am an All-Star. No disrespect to the Dunk Contest, that’s just a personal goal I set for myself. My family, my brothers have all told me, "You need to do it. It would be fun. You would win it." It’s just something about that deal I made with myself. If that time happens, I’m in.
