Blake Griffin

  1. Another report Chris Paul very likely to re-sign with Clippers

    Feb 9, 2013, 2:00 PM EST

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is simply put the best player available as a free agent this summer. And while teams will call, the buzz around the league is none of them think they have a shot at him. Everyone is pretty convinced he will re-sign with the Los Angeles Clippers. That includes the Clippers. Marc Stein wrote…

  2. Wade, Bosh, Allen all could be out for Heat vs. Clippers Friday

    Feb 8, 2013, 12:40 PM EST

    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade drives between New Orleans Hornets in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    If you paid a lot of money to see the Heat and Clippers in an All-Star battle Friday night, I’d hold my breath. The good news is the Clippers could be getting Chris Paul back — their MVP candidate is a game time decision, but it is thought he will play. Not so much for…

  3. 2013 Slam Dunk Contest: Jeremy Evans will defend title against Green, Bledsoe, Ross, Faried, and James White

    Feb 7, 2013, 7:14 PM EST

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Utah’s Jeremy Evans — the human pogo stick — will be back to defend his All-Star weekend Sprite Dunk Contest title. But a repeat will not be easy because the NBA has lined up some high flyers to step up to challenge him — Gerald Green of the Pacers, James White of the Knicks, Eric…

  4. Thursday And-1 Links: Blake Griffin taps Chandler Parsons in the… watch the video

    Blake Griffin

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points like old ladies like to complain about how loud movies are now days (written…

  5. The Dallas Mavericks are growing mediocre beards

    Feb 7, 2013, 3:07 PM EST

    BKB-GER-US-ALBA-MAVERICKS

    You’ve probably heard of guys growing letting their facial hair grow for the postseason. The Clippers did it last year with hilarious results — Blake Griffin made Paul Pierce‘s beard look lustrous and full by comparison. The tradition of playoff beards has been around a long time in all sports, but the Dallas Mavericks are…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: LeBron, Wade enough for Heat

    Rockets Heat Basketball

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while trying out your stylish new Get Smart shoe-phone…. Heat 114, Rockets 108: What a fun finish. After collapsing in the finals last year against the Heat, James Harden exacted a little personal revenge. Harden was a one-man wrecking crew, scoring 36 points…

  7. Durant admits he needs to “shut up,” stop getting technicals

    Feb 6, 2013, 5:10 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Three

    Kevin Durant has become a complainer — the “nicest guy in the NBA” has joined the superstar trend of complaining about calls to the referees. And the yapping has cost him — he is tied for the league lead with 9 technicals. The other guys on the list are notorious complainers — Carmelo Anthony, Matt…

  8. Chris Paul, Blake Griffin out again Wednesday vs. Magic

    Feb 6, 2013, 1:42 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers have struggled of late going 2-6 in their eight games without Chris Paul in the lineup. They are 0-1 when Blake Griffin is out as well. We’ll see what happens in CP3s ninth game out Wednesday, although it’s against a team even more banged up — Orlando. Chris Paul and Blake Griffin are…

  10. Blake Griffin out for Clippers Monday versus Wizards

    Feb 4, 2013, 7:44 PM EST

    Clippers Raptors Basketball

    When Washington came to Los Angeles they played Blake Griffin physically with Nene and Kevin Seraphin, holding him relatively in check (in what was a close game). I was curious to see how Griffin and the Clippers would counter that. We’ll never know. Griffin was a late scratch for the Clippers with a hamstring issue…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: For one night at least Celtics look fine post-Rondo

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while thinking you may have finally found the perfect job… Suns 92, Lakers 86: Ouch. You can apply that one word sentence to Dwight Howard’s shoulder, he left the game midway through the fourth quarter and did not return, seeming to aggravate his…

  13. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs back in the saddle again

    Jan 28, 2013, 4:29 PM EST

    Tony Parker

    You know the consistently good Spurs are going to climb into the top spot a couple times during the season. The top four remain the same but we see some teams fall farther down the list while teams like the Wizards and Hornets climb. 1. Spurs (36-11, last week ranked No. 2). They have won…

We have a lot more detail on…

  15. Blake Griffin was dunking all over Phoenix Thursday (VIDEO)

    Jan 25, 2013, 8:55 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Phoenix Suns

    Dunks don’t equal wins — the Phoenix Suns moved to 2-0 under Lindsey Hunter with one of their best games of the year beating the Clippers Thursday night on national television. But the Blake Griffin aerial show was in full effect in Phoenix. Personally, the second one of those is the only classic Griffin power…

  16. Suns move to 2-0 under new head coach with win over Clippers

    Jan 25, 2013, 3:50 AM EST

    Lindsey Hunter, Goran Dragic

    PHOENIX — The Suns said the team needed a “jolt” when it parted ways with Alvin Gentry last week, and replaced him with Lindsey Hunter as the interim head coach for (at least) the rest of this season. Hunter said from day one his first priority would be defense, and he’s been a man of…

  17. 2013 NBA All-Star reserves announced

    Jan 24, 2013, 7:39 PM EST

    East All-Star Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat (L)  battles West All-Star Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder

    The 2013 NBA All-Star reserves were announced Thursday, and while there will always be a few players who fans will argue should have made it, it’s tough to disagree with the ones the coaches selected. In the Western Conference, Tony Parker, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden were the guards selected, and big men Tim Duncan,…

  19. PBT’s NBA Mid-Season Awards: All hail Kevin Durant

    Jan 24, 2013, 12:31 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    It’s the halfway point of the NBA season. To me having a serious discussion about end of season awards before this point is like discussing the 2016 presidential election today — it’s all speculation and wishful thinking. Now we have enough games to have a body of evidence and a discussion. So here are my…

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

    Jan 23, 2013, 2:32 AM EST

    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…

    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,…

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

    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,…

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

    Jan 20, 2013, 6:30 PM EST

    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,…
