DeAndre Jordan’s free throw denied Timberwolves fans free dessert

With only two minutes left in the fourth quarter of the game between the L.A. Clippers and the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Center on Sunday, the home crowd howled wildly as they were on the verge of getting a free frozen yogurt each if DeAndre Jordan misses another free-throw.

But the 6-foot-11 center had a different plan as he made the foul shot and denied all ticket holders of the night their dessert. He joked about not allowing everyone to enjoy the free treat and also discussed the reason why he has improved his percentages from the free-throw stripe.

“Sometimes, I’m in a giving mood,” Jordan said with a grin. “Tonight, I was not.”

“I’m confident up there. I’ve got a routine. I’ve got everything I need. I’m just going to go up there and just shoot.”

“They’re all straight. “I’m shooting them the same way. I’m not changing my routine. I’m consistent when I’m at the line now.

Jordan’s 45.6 percent from the 15-foot line may not be seen as a good number to have but that is the highest he’s had in his career. During the summer, he worked on improving his form and having a routine to increase his chances of making more shots from the line.

It will be hard to question his new found confidence from the free-throw line and he has been making more of them now

By making 10-of-16 on Sunday, the Minnesota crowd who watched the game live found out for themselves that he is not the right person to foul if a free cup of frozen yogurt is at stake.
