DeAndre Jordan and Chris Paul were way too pumped for this headbutt

Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan made strong starts to the season as the L.A. Clippers have set the pace in the NBA. Sitting on 10-1, the Clippers currently top the Western Conference and boast the best record out of all 30 franchises.

Last night they swept past the Brooklyn Nets at Staples Center with consummate ease, sprinting out to a 39-14 lead at the end of the first quarter and never looking back. 

They showed the same intensity that has led them to a league-best start, but the aforementioned duo maybe went a bit overboard during a break in play. 


Butting heads in appreciation of each other's play, Paul and Jordan - especially the big man - were left regretting their decision as they clutched their heads in pain following the bump. 

Paul was over it pretty quickly, but his All-NBA first team teammate clearly took the brunt of the pain as he struggled to recover. 

It was soon back to action and the Clippers were able to coast past a depleted Nets, who were competing without Brook Lopez and Jeremy Lin. 


CP3 ended the game with 21 points, 4 rebounds and 9 assists while Jordan had 7 points and 14 boards. 

With games against the Grizzlies, Kings, Bulls and Raptors to come, L.A. will be hopeful of extending their start to 14-1 - but they may need to lay off the head bumping.
