Pneumonia ends DeAndre Jordan's streak of 360 straight games
LOS ANGELES (AP) Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan has been scratched Wednesday night against Miami because of pneumonia, ending the NBA's longest active consecutive games streak at 360.
Jordan last missed a game on March 23, 2011, after being diagnosed with a mild case of pneumonia.
The eight-year veteran has been sick for at least the last four days, coach Doc Rivers said.
Jordan's playing streak was the second-longest in the history of the Clippers franchise behind Randy Smith's 595 straight with the Buffalo Braves.
Jordan has won the last two NBA rebounding titles and is the franchise leader in that category.
