With start point guard Chris Paul leaving the game in the third quarter with a shoulder injury, the Los Angeles Clippers needed someone to step up.

Center DeAndre Jordan did just that, scoring a career-high 25 points, pulling down 18 rebounds and blocking three shots in a 119-112 victory over the Dallas Mavericks Friday night.

Plus, Jordan, as he so often does,  had the dunk of the night.
