If (DeAndre) Jordan were to sit out any games before the Playoffs, it would snap a league-best streak of 238 consecutive games, including starting Saturday against the Kings. Rivers talked about Jordan’s durability prior to the game.

“He’s one of those guys that does have bangs and bruises and sprains,” Rivers said. “He just keeps playing though them. There are people made that way. It’s their makeup and D.J. is one of those guys. I can say 10 practice this year where [Clippers trainer Jasen Powell] would come up and say, ‘I don’t think D.J.’s going to practice.’ And then he’d go the whole practice and you didn’t know he was injured.

“He had a root canal one morning before practice and practiced the whole practice. It was great. He didn’t talk a lot which was even better. He didn’t complain once at the refs. It was awesome.”
