  1. Kevin Durant delivers daggers as the Thunder roll over the Clippers

    Jan 23, 2013, 2:32 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Clippers

    In a big road test against the Los Angeles Clippers for Western Conference supremacy, Kevin Durant was unproductive and almost non-existent to start the game. Those aren’t words you typically use to describe Durant at any point, but it was inexplicably true. The league’s leading scorer was quiet throughout the first quarter, scoring only one…

    Brooklyn Nets Joe Johnson celebrates with Brook Lopez after he shot three-point against New York Knicks in NBA game in New York

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while wondering what made Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia think that hat was a good choice at the inauguration…. Bulls 95, Lakers 83: Chicago is what Los Angeles is not — passionate, committed to the system, hustlers on every play and defenders. So,…

  4. Stephen Curry with the amazing pass to Jarrett Jack on the break (VIDEO)

    Jan 21, 2013, 8:32 PM EDT

    stephen curry

    In a day full of highlights, this might have been one of the best. Midway through the fourth quarter of a tight contest between the Clippers and the Warriors, Stephen Curry grabs the rebound and leads the fast break. He doesn’t get very far, though, before spotting a streaking Jarrett Jack. Curry stops at halfcourt,…

  6. Blake Griffin leads the break, finds DeAndre Jordan for the alley-oop slam (VIDEO)

    Jan 20, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    We can probably find some sick Blake Griffin highlights from just about every one of the Clippers’ games this season. But usually he’s on the receiving end of one of these plays, not the one leading the break and throwing the perfect pass. Midway through the third quarter of Saturday night’s win over the Wizards,…

  7. After 11 straight All-Star selections, Nowitzki’s streak about to end

    Jan 20, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki reacts after hitting a shot against the Oklahoma City Thunder during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    Dirk Nowitzki missed the first third of the season with following knee surgery. Since he has returned he hasn’t been himself — 14 points a game on 41 percent shooting, with a PER right at the league average of 15. All of that has been just part of a disappointing season so far in Dallas.…

  8. Clippers send promotional material to coaches to try to get Jamal Crawford voted in as an All-Star

    Jan 19, 2013, 9:01 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford, Chris Bosh

    The All-Star reserves will be announced this Thursday, and with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin both already in as members of the Western Conference starting lineup, there isn’t a great possibility that another player from the Clippers will make it as the team’s third representative. But that isn’t stopping the Clippers organization from trying. With…

  9. Ugly gets uglier as the Clippers defeat the injury-riddled Timberwovles

    Jan 18, 2013, 12:26 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves guard Rubio is defended by L.A. Clippers' Crawford and Griffin during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Minneapolis

    It was easy to be excited for this one going in. Ricky Rubio is always must see TV, and Eric Bledsoe is capable of providing some serious fireworks. Pit the two against each other, throw in a few Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan jams, and you’ve got yourself a game, right? Well, not exactly. Bledsoe…

    kobe all-star 2013

    The 2013 NBA All-Star starters were announced just after 7 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, and in the both the Eastern and Western conferences, there were no surprises. In the east, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, and Kevin Garnett were the frontcourt players voted in by the fans, and Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo were selected to…

    The Extra Pass is a new daily column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme. Today, we look at the maturation of the Los Angeles Clippers. For years and years, the Los Angeles Clippers were a failure on a systemic level. The on-court talent was faced with…

  12. Nets show real ball movement on fast break (VIDEO)

    Jan 16, 2013, 12:56 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Brooklyn Nets

    Yes, there were a lot of fantastic highlights last night — Blake Griffin with a steal and another huge dunk, Terrence Ross with probably the best dunk of the night, and many more. But this was probably my favorite, because after the Robin Lopez block there is one dribble on a fast break all about…

  13. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder on top, Nuggets climbing ranks

    Jan 14, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Chris Duhon, Earl Clark

    Each of the top five teams in last week’s ranking suffered losses, some pretty ugly losses. So, who bounced back and looked best after that? Oklahoma City, so they maintain the top spot. 1. Thunder (28-8, Last week ranked No. 1). Kevin Durant is a better playmaker than last year. Russell Westbrook a better floor…

  14. Report: Cavaliers wanted DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe for Varejao

    Jan 14, 2013, 12:59 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Atlanta Hawks

    Injured or not, Anderson Varejao is one guy whose name will come up around the trade deadline — big men who work hard, defend and rebound are always in demand. The buzz has been that Cleveland would listen to your offer but they wanted a lot back in return for Varejao. A lot. And this…

  16. Blake Griffin goes off for 30, and don’t think they’re all dunks (VIDEO)

    Jan 13, 2013, 2:51 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    It wasn’t enough — the Orlando Magic snapped the Los Angeles Clippers 13-game home winning streak. Mostly because the Clippers defense — which has been stout all season — took the night off. But Blake Griffin had a big game for Los Angeles — 30 points on 15-of-22 shooting. Here are the highlights. Yes, there…

  17. Magic snap Clippers’ 13-game home winning streak

    Jan 12, 2013, 8:26 PM EDT

    Grant Hill, Josh McRoberts

    The Orlando Magic are just 13-23 on the season, but they have some surprising signature wins that give the fan base hope as the team rebuilds without a superstar on the roster, and with a first-year head coach running the show. Saturday afternoon’s come-from-behind 104-101 win over a Clippers team that held a share of…

  18. Chris Paul, Blake Griffin stop by Jimmy Kimmel Live (VIDEO)

    Jan 11, 2013, 1:11 PM EDT

    Clippers guard Paul and forward Griffin return to the court following an injury to Griffin against the Grizzlies during the second half of game five in the Western Conference quarterfinals of the 2012 NBA playoffs in Memphis

    Los Angeles isn’t a Clippers town. But it is a town with a growing number of Clippers fans. And it sounds like half of them were in the crowd at Jimmy Kimmel Live when Blake Griffin and Chris Paul swung by. The one new bit of information is that during the 17-game winning streak the…

  19. Pau Gasol says he won’t ask to be traded from Lakers

    Jan 5, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Pau Gasol was essentially non-existent in the Lakers loss to the Clippers on Friday, finishing with just two points on 1-of-6 shooting in his 27 minutes of action. Defensively, he wasn’t much better, and seemed to be playing in slow motion at times against the likes of the super-athletic Blake Griffin. To make matters worse,…

  20. Chris Paul leads Clippers to convincing win over Lakers

    Jan 5, 2013, 2:38 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Chris Paul dribbles the ball as Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant defends during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The battle of Los Angeles turned out to be not much of a contest after all, and if you’ve been paying attention to the fortunes of the Lakers and Clippers to this point in the season, the end result shouldn’t have come as much of a surprise. Chris Paul controlled the game from the very…

  21. Lakers vs. Clippers: Not a battle for soul of L.A., but a real battle

    Jan 4, 2013, 6:41 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Bryant brushes past Los Angeles Clippers' Paul during their NBA preseason game in Los Angeles

    The soul of Los Angeles is not at stake on Friday night when the Clippers “host” the Lakers at Staples Center. First off, Los Angeles sold its soul for year-around 70 degree weather  long ago. Second, Los Angeles is a Lakers town. Trust me, I live there, and while Clippers fans are no longer afraid to…

  22. One last look back: Top 10 plays of 2012 (VIDEO)

    Jan 4, 2013, 4:52 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    This is it. We are done after this one. No more looking back at 2012, only looking forward to 2013 and when the Lakers trade Pau Gasol. Maybe. But the NBA’s top 10 plays of 2012 was too good not to run. Watch it and you get to see Rudy Fernandez with the buzzer-beating tip-in…

  23. Latest All-Star voting returns in, Charles Barkley will not be happy

    Jan 3, 2013, 4:01 PM EDT

    APTOPIX NBA All Star Basketball

    Apparently, you folks have no concern whatsoever for Charles Barkley’s feelings. The day after Barkley said Dwight Howard and Kevin Garnett have not played well enough to be part of the All-Star starters, they are both in. Howard solidly, he’s a lock, and Garnett has stretched out his lead over Chris Bosh. Basically, nothing has…

  24. Blake Griffin three hits side of backboard; Warriors, fans have fun with that (VIDEO)

    Jan 3, 2013, 11:53 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    That Blake Griffin missed a three isn’t really news — he’s 2-of-11 from there this season and most of those shots, like the one above, come late in the clock when he doesn’t have the time to get a better one. But when you are All-Star Blake Griffin and you hit the side of the…
