VIDEO: Nets’ DeAndre Jordan’s assist celebration ruined by Garrett Temple’s blown layup
Maybe that’s why Jordan got slightly prematurely excited after finding Garrett Temple under the basket towards the end of the 1st quarter — only for Temple to somehow blow the layup.
Even though he may have been slightly late with a almost-no-look delivery, Temple was wide-open enough to have an easy point blank opportunity. Jordan was just about to pick up his make believe dime on the ground when Temple’s shot rimmed out.

The dime pickup is a wonderful minor move, and not Jordan’s only one with the Nets. His pregame fro-check pregame routine with fellow starting center Jarrett Allen is enjoyable, as well.
DeAndre Jordan and the Nets need all the points Wednesday night. After all, entering the game, the Raptors are riding a 15-game winning streak.
