    Dec 27, 2013, 5:32 PM EST

    Blake Griffin, Andrew Bogut, DeAndre Jordan, Darren Collison

    The NBA league office. NBA referees. Something he’s not involved in directly. Yup, all the ingredients were there for Mark Cuban to speak up. The NBA admitted Blake Griffin shouldn’t have been been ejected from the Clippers’ game against the Warriors on Christmas, an Cuban praised the admission. Cuban, via Eddie Sefko of The Dallas…

  2. Blake Griffin: Warriors were ‘cowardly.’ Andrew Bogut: Yeah, so? We won

    Dec 27, 2013, 10:00 AM EST

    Blake Griffin, Andrew Bogut, DeAndre Jordan, Darren Collison

    Draymond Green elbowed Blake Griffin in the face, and then Andrew Bogut grabbed Griffin and refused to release. So, of course, Griffin was ejected from the Clippers-Warriors game on Christmas. Green took a total dirty shot, and seeing an opportunity to get an opposing All-Star ejected, Bogut seized it with another non-basketball play. There are…

  3. The Extra Pass: A big test for the Clippers; plus Thursday’s recaps

    Dec 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Pressure reveals character, and the last minutes of the Clippers road matchup with Portland did just that. Down the stretch, both teams played perfectly to their strengths. The Blazers ran everything through LaMarcus Aldirdge (32 points) on the left block, surrounding him with three-point shooters and daring the Clippers to double. The Clippers, meanwhile, put the…

  4. League admits Blake Griffin should not have been ejected Christmas night

    Dec 26, 2013, 5:16 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    When it happened everyone — from analyst Jon Barry to the NBA Twitterverse — knew it was a bad set of calls. Blake Griffin got ejected for two technical fouls after he had two flagrant fouls committed against him. The game had gotten a little physical but the referees — led by Bill Kennedy —…

  5. Latest NBA All-Star balloting released; LeBron, Durant leading vote getters

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:12 PM EST

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    We warned you this would be the case — there are not many changes in the All-Star Game fan voting as we move through the process. Who you vote for early tends to be who you vote for late. The fans choose the starters for the annual exhibition game and as of Thursday when the…

    Dec 26, 2013, 1:26 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets' Iguodala reacts after scoring over the Golden State Warriors in the final seconds of the second quarter of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Denver

    In case you missed it — and if you didn’t stay up to watch the Clippers at Warriors late game on Christmas Day then you really missed out — let me try to give you a little context. Golden State’s Draymond Green got ejected after he got his elbow up above the shoulder and caught…

  7. The Extra Pass: LeBron and Kobe miss each other once again, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 26, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES – The reason behind the NBA scheduling a Christmas Day marquee matchup between the Heat and the Lakers had nothing to do with the current fate of the respective franchises, and everything to do with potentially getting to see two of the game’s biggest stars competing in a rare head-to-head matchup. A Finals…

  8. Blake Griffin ejected after dust up with Andrew Bogut (VIDEO)

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:45 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    That is not worthy of an ejection. But this little dust up is what got Blake Griffin tossed, this gave him his second technical in the game and that is an automatic ejection. The first technical came when Draymond Green got an elbow up above Griffin’s shoulders and he reacted to the blow. Not sure…

  9. Christmas night NBA grades: Durant is on the nice list, the Nets get a lump of coal

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:26 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v New York Knicks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to get that “Christmas Jammies” song out of your head….  Brooklyn Nets not named Deron Williams. If you want to blame everyone in a Brooklyn uniform (ugly, Christmas Day sleeved uniform) for that disaster of a loss, I can’t blame you. They were…

  10. Warriors beat Clippers… do we have a rivalry brewing?

    Dec 26, 2013, 2:46 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    There isn’t a full-blown rivalry between the Clippers and Warriors. Yet. NBA rivalries are forged in the playoffs and these two up-and-coming teams in the West have yet to meet on that stage. But can they please? Can we get a Clippers/Warriors playoff matchup this season? I don’t think that’s too much to ask. The…

    Lil Cliff, Lil Chris -- State Farm

    Chris Paul (and his alter ego Cliff) have been part of an ad campaign for State Farm Insurance for some time.

  12. Kevin Love put up a monster line against Clippers (VIDEO)

    Dec 23, 2013, 8:45 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Clippers

    Minnesota lost another close game — they do that a lot — but you can’t blame Kevin Love for this one. He had a monster game — 45 points, 19 rebounds and 6 assists on the night. He got those 45 points on 15-of-23 shooting, hitting shots from the arc out to the post. He…

  13. The Extra Pass: Three things you think about Danny Granger that are wrong

    Dec 23, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Houston Rockets  v Indiana Pacers

    In his second game back Sunday, Danny Granger looked good. After battling knee issues that kept him out almost all of last season and most of this one, Granger returned the Pacers lineup this weekend. Sunday against the Celtics he looked like the guy the Pacers are hoping he will be off the bench —…

    Dec 23, 2013, 1:29 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Clippers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reading about how Charles Dickens’ classic “Christmas Carroll” almost didn’t get published… Kevin Love, Minnesota Timberwolves. Kevin Love is not going to own up to it, but this came off as a “are all of you really voting for Blake Griffin as an All-Star…

  15. LeBron, Kobe top NBA jersey sales list during holidays

    Dec 19, 2013, 12:51 PM EST

    Heat Media Day Basketball

    He’s the reigning NBA MVP, won the last two NBA titles, earned the last two the Finals MVPs… And not surprisingly, LeBron James sells a lot of jerseys. The NBA released the top selling jerseys from the start of this season (October through December this year), which includes the holiday buying rush, and not surprisingly…

  16. The Extra Pass: Golden State’s Elevator Screen plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    The Signature Series takes a look at a play that’s largely unique to one team. Here’s Golden State’s Elevator screen play: The “Elevator” screen is one of the most aesthetically pleasing plays you’ll see in the league, particularly when it’s run by Golden State. That’s in large part because any possession that ends in a…

  17. Google’s most searched NBA player in 2013? LeBron. Top trending team? Do you have to ask?

    Dec 17, 2013, 3:15 PM EST

    LeBron James

    Google search records are not the best way to test the popularity of something, but it is a pretty democratic way. Bottom line is you find out who people want to find out more about. As a fun little NBA treat, Google released Tuesday their most searched NBA players… and if you have to guess…

  18. The Extra Pass: The Clippers’ “Rosie” Screen; plus Monday’s recaps

    Dec 17, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Over the next few days in this space, we’ll break down a play that’s largely unique to one team. To kick off this signature series, we’ll start with the Los Angeles Clippers’ “Ring-Around-The-Rosie” screen. Innovation in the NBA is often about adding little wrinkles to something very simple. There are no “Wildcat” offenses that take…

  19. PBT’s NBA Power Rankings: Stability at the top, trades could shake up bottom

    Dec 16, 2013, 1:47 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    There is no movement at the top of the standings as the top five teams went 15-1 last week (and that one loss was to another top 5 team). However, get past that five and you get into teams like the Rockets, Suns and others where trades could really change rankings as we move toward…

  20. Nets notes: Kidd takes some credit, Lopez downplays injury, and Pierce off the bench

    Dec 13, 2013, 10:12 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    NEW YORK – A few leftover items from Thursday night’s big win for the Nets, the team’s third straight. When Jason Kidd parted ways with assistant coach Lawrence Frank a little more than a week ago, it was viewed in one of two ways. Either it was a desperate attempt to shift the blame for…

  21. Deserving or not Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade among All-Star starters in early voting returns

    Dec 12, 2013, 1:58 PM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    It’s your game fans. The NBA All-Star Game is an exhibition filled with the players you vote to see. Whether those players deserve the honor based on their performance the first half of the season or not. Sometimes the most deserving guys don’t make the cut while guys hobbling through the season do. Which brings…

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The Clipper locker room is not like others — Chris Paul‘s son has the run of the place and some other team members regularly bring their children in. It’s different, but it works for the Clips, who have pretty good team chemistry. Now ‘Lil Chris is showing up in the latest Foot Locker ad. And…

  23. The Extra Pass: Five quick ways to improve the league; plus Monday’s Recaps

    Dec 10, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Five ideas that could help make the NBA even greater: Offensive Goaltending: Let’s get rid of it. The “in the cylinder” call is routinely one of the toughest for refs to get right on the floor, and we know how the subsequent huddle and review process can suck the life out of a game. If it…

  24. LeBron James likely to start at center for Eastern Conference All-Stars

    Dec 8, 2013, 2:00 PM EST

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    The NBA changed the way they categorize players for All-Star voting purposes last season, eliminating the center position (and all others) from the ballot entirely and replacing those with either a frontcourt or backcourt player distinction. While it won’t affect superstar big men like Roy Hibbert making the All-Star roster, it will change the way…

  25. Clippers still searching for consistent defensive identity

    Dec 5, 2013, 4:12 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks
