Blake Griffin

  1. The Extra Pass: Five observations from the East and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Pacers' Hibbert looks down court during Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series against the Heat in Indianapolis

    After a busy Monday night in the NBA, let’s swing around the Eastern Conference for a few observations. Indiana: If Roy Hibbert keeps getting that “verticality” respect from officials, it’s goodnight, Irene time for all of the other the Defensive Player of the Year candidates. Look at these numbers: Per 36 minutes on his career: 2.6…

  2. James Harden fined $5,000 for flop against Blake Griffin, Clippers (VIDEO)

    Nov 11, 2013, 3:07 PM EDT

    James Harden

    Congratulations James Harden, you have become the first player fined by the NBA for flopping this season. Harden had been warned before this season, then on Saturday against the Clippers the flop above happened. And it was a flop. Harden drove the lane, missed the shot, got his own rebound as he faced the baseline…

  3. Dwight Howard swats Blake Griffin’s shot into the stands (VIDEO)

    Nov 10, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard attempted to make a statement early in his team’s contest against the Clippers on Saturday, coming over to help defensively and swatting Blake Griffin‘s shot attempt deep into the stands. It was an intimidation move by Howard and not a smart one, because keeping the ball in play or deflecting it to a…

  4. Heat’s Mario Chalmers fined $15,000 for forearm to Blake Griffin’s neck (VIDEO)

    Nov 8, 2013, 7:12 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    In the third quarter of the Heat’s win over the Clippers Thursday, Blake Griffin was setting a pick for Chris Paul and Mario Chalmers decided to fight through it — with his forearm up, catching Blake Griffin in the neck. Friday the league announced a $15,000 fine for Chalmers for the play. Not a shock,…

  5. Blake Griffin with the dunk past LeBron James and Chris Bosh (VIDEO)

    Nov 7, 2013, 11:33 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Scott Machado, Derrick Favors

    The Clippers dropped their nationally televised matchup against the Heat on Thursday, but Blake Griffin had by far the best statistical effort for his team, as well as one of the better highlights. Miami’s defensive rotations broke down on this particular play late in the fourth, and Griffin took advantage by soaring past LeBron James…

  6. Chris Bosh, back from birth of daughter, will play vs. Clippers Thursday

    Nov 7, 2013, 5:28 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh

    No more Shane Battier jumping center for the Miami Heat. After not traveling with the Heat to Toronto so he could be there for the birth of his daughter — which is the only right decision to make — Chris Bosh is back with the Heat to take on the Clippers Thursday night. That’s 19.8…

  7. Wednesday Night NBA Grades: Larry Sanders out of action, and Tony Parker’s big fourth quarter

    Nov 7, 2013, 1:06 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game Four

    Our grades from Wednesday night around the NBA, or what you missed while securing funds in advance of twitter’s IPO … Larry Sanders. Apologies for starting things off on a negative note, and even more so for discussing someone who didn’t even play in Wednesday night’s action. But signing a contract worth a guaranteed $44 million…

  8. Chris Paul is the “Point Gawd,” goes off for 23 and 17 on Rockets (VIDEO)

    Nov 5, 2013, 10:42 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Jeremy Lin

    If you want to know why most people around the league rank Chris Paul third on the list of best NBA players, watch this video. He went up against Jeremy Lin and a very porous Rockets defense on the night and just dominated the game with 23 points and 17 assists. He was setting up…

  9. The Extra Pass: Clippers offensive fireworks cover up struggling defense, plus Monday recaps

    Nov 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    LOS ANGELES — The Clippers know how to put on a show — they dropped a highflying 137 points on the Rockets and blew the up-and-coming team out of the water. Through four games the Clippers are averaging 116.7 points per 100s possessions, that is almost 7 points better than the second place team (Houston).…

  10. Red-hot Clippers put on a show at Rockets expense, win big

    Nov 5, 2013, 2:40 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford, Chris Paul

    LOS ANGELES — This happens a few games a season. It was a perfect storm of the already explosive Clippers offense really finding its flow in an up-tempo game, a Rockets defense that was just floundering, some foul trouble to the Rockets defensive anchor, and to top it all off Chris Paul had the Midas…

  11. Lob City is not dead: CP3, Griffin connect on back-to-back-to-back alley oops (VIDEO)

    Nov 1, 2013, 10:26 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    The reports of Lob City’s death have been greatly exagerated. Golden State lost to the Clippers Thursday night in a wildly entertaining game because of 24 turnovers (11 by Stephen Curry) and with all the changes in Los Angeles one thing remians the same — turn the ball over and they will get out in…

  12. PBT Roundtable: Who is the most overrated team in the NBA to start season?

    Nov 1, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Raymond Felton

    Each week the PBT writers sit at a virtual roundtable, just like the knights of King Arthur, drink mead and discuss the NBA topic of the day. This week’s question: Kurt Helin: There are a few candidates here, but after seeing them in person opening night I will say the Clippers (and I picked them…

  13. What to expect from LeBron and the Heat?

    Oct 28, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    You’re busy, so I’ll save you some time: a championship.  They’ve won two straight, basically their entire squad is coming back, and their best guy is the most dynamic and exciting player since Michael Jordan.  The Heat have all the tools they need to make a run at a three-peat – but even with them…

  14. Utah’s Rudy Gobert thinks better of blocking Blake Griffin dunk (VIDEO)

    Oct 24, 2013, 1:04 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Scott Machado, Derrick Favors

    This dunk by Blake Griffin is pretty much standard Clippers fare — it’s an impressive throw down but Chris Paul sets guys up like that half a dozen times a game. It’s Utah rookie Rudy Gobert that makes this video work. Watch him rotate over and think about going for the block on Griffin, realizing that…

  15. J.J. Redick returns to Clippers practice, likely to play Friday

    Oct 23, 2013, 4:03 PM EDT

    J.J. Redick

    The Los Angeles Clippers have finally admitted there was more than just a bruised thigh that was keeping J.J. Redick sidelined the last three weeks — there was a little bit of a tear. But that is apparently a thing of the past. Redick is back on the Clippers practice court Tuesday and told Arash…

  16. Coach says Sixers’ Nerlens Noel likely out for season

    Oct 21, 2013, 7:22 PM EDT

    Nerlens Noel

    This shouldn’t be a shock, it’s rather a logical extension of the 76ers long-term plans and their rather painful experience with Andrew Bynum last year. But it still is a little jarring to hear it. Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said Monday before the 76ers preseason game that Nerlens Noel likely will miss the entire season,…

  17. Nick Young calls Clippers covering up Lakers championship banners at Staples Center ‘disrespectful’

    Oct 20, 2013, 8:03 PM EDT

    Lakers.com

    We knew this was coming. After the Clippers redecorated Staples Center by putting up large images of their own players over the space on the wall where all of the Lakers’ championship banners and retired jerseys reside, comments from the Lakers were to be expected. But most, wisely, couldn’t care less about how the Clippers…

  18. Chris Paul drops 40 on Nuggets in preseason (VIDEO)

    Oct 20, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Maybe there is something special about those powder blue with sleeves uniforms of the Clippers. Or maybe Chris Paul just loves Las Vegas. Whatever the case, CP3 went off in a preseason game against Denver and dropped 40 points in Los Angeles’ 118-111 overtime win at Mandalay Bay. Doc Rivers decided to stretch the legs…

  19. DeAndre Jordan dunks so hard he hurts teammate Collison (VIDEO)

    Oct 19, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    The reports of Lob City’s death was an exaggeration. While Blake Griffin doesn’t want to talk about it because he wants the Clippers to be seen as serious contenders — it’s time to put away childish things  — the Clippers are still going to throw down lobs. They should, if the goal is to find…

  20. Clippers are covering up Lakers’ championship banners at Staples Center

    Oct 18, 2013, 11:03 PM EDT

    lakers banners

    The Clippers are in the odd and historically unfortunate situation of sharing an arena with the storied Los Angeles Lakers franchise. It makes for an awkward game night when the Clippers are the home team, considering one of the walls of the arena is covered with large banners representing all of the Lakers’ 16 NBA…

  21. Chris Paul, J.J. Redick bury hatchet on long-running feud

    Oct 17, 2013, 8:39 PM EDT

    Chris Paul, J.J. Redick

    Chris Paul and J.J. Redick didn’t get along. It started down on Tobacco Road, where Redick started at Duke and Paul at Wake Forest, but it was more than just that. This was Redick punched Paul when they met at the Jordan camp kind of feud. (Truth be told, I had a little more respect…

  22. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Los Angeles Clippers

    Oct 16, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    Last season: The Clippers finished the regular season with a franchise best 56 wins, good enough for the fourth seed in the West and home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs over the Memphis Grizzlies. L.A. went up two games to none in the series, before Memphis came back to win the…

  23. DeAndre Jordan gets loose for the fast break slam (VIDEO)

    Oct 13, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    DeAndre Jordan is going to be possibly the most important player for the Clippers this season. Doc Rivers has already tabbed him as being part of the team’s so-called Big Three along with Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, and Rivers has been grooming Jordan to use his athleticism to anchor the defense much in the…

  24. Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, CP3 swing by Jimmy Kimmel (VIDEO)

    Oct 11, 2013, 12:57 PM EDT

    Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan

    I’m sure you didn’t watch Jimmy Kimmel last night because you were reading “The Moons of Jupiter” by Alice Munro, so here is what you missed when the Clippers’ Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan swung by the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live. 1. It takes two buffalos to make a pair of Kanye-style…

  25. PBT Roundtable: Who will win Rookie of the Year?

    Oct 11, 2013, 12:55 AM EDT

    Trey Burke

    Welcome to PBT’s regular roundtable on issues around the NBA, where our writers weigh in on the topic of the day. Today: Who will win the NBA Rookie of the Year Award? Kurt Helin: There’s a formula to this — you need a guy with the ball in his hand on a bad team that is…
