All of the misery was necessary, because now DeAndre Jordan is getting ready to go in this season. The Clippers kicked off their preseason with a game against the Nuggets. Jordan got the year's first highlight. It was also a doozy, too: A reverse alley-oop from none other than Chris Paul.

It seems like Paul and Jordan are cool. Also, Jordan might not suck at free throws anymore.

Strange But True: DeAndre Jordan made his 1st 2 free throws of the preseason.
