Without Steven Adams it was a struggle on both ends of the floor for the Thunder against the Clippers. Russell Westbrook didn't pick up an assist until about 90 seconds left in the first half, and is just 3-13 shooting (12 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists).

Efficiency of scoring has given the Clippers a 34-25 lead after one quarter. LA has scored two more baskets on seven less attempts and we're a blistering 5-of-9 from deep. DeAndre Jordan? He flirted with a double-double (9 points, 8 rebounds) before sitting the final minute of the opening quarter.

No Steven Adams means DeAndre Jordan is feasting. The Clippers C is at 7 points and 5 rebounds through 7 minutes of action. He's averaging 12.1 points and 13.8 rebounds this season.

DeAndre Jordan sank his first two free throws of the night. He's shooting 51.7 percent this season. Jordan shot 43 percent last season and is a career 42.9 percent free throw shooter.
