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

    Jan 16, 2013, 12:56 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 14, 2013, 4:11 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 14, 2013, 12:59 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 13, 2013, 2:51 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 12, 2013, 8:26 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 11, 2013, 1:11 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 5, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    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,…

  11. Chris Paul leads Clippers to convincing win over Lakers

    Jan 5, 2013, 2:38 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 4, 2013, 6:41 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 4, 2013, 4:52 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 3, 2013, 4:01 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 3, 2013, 11:53 AM EST

    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…

Carlesimo has his signature win and for a night the Nets looked like the team from the first weeks of the season. Oh, they’re…

  17. Three Stars of the night: Getting your team wins against elite

    Jan 3, 2013, 2:58 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    There were so many people who could have made three stars of the night tonight we could have done 10 stars of the night. But, for the sake of my sanity (such as it is) we are keeping it at three. So how do you separate the top three? It’s not just numbers, but who…

  18. Blake Griffin has awkward fall after flagrant foul by Ezeli (VIDEO)

    Jan 3, 2013, 1:08 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Blake Griffin starts his drive from the top of the key, goes right and blows by Festus Ezeli and as he starts to elevate for the shot Ezeli hooks his arm. The result is an awkward and ugly foul that earned Ezeli a flagrant one foul. Griffin laid on the ground for a little bit grabbing his head…

  19. Ice-cold Clippers win streak ends at 17 in Denver

    Jan 2, 2013, 12:47 AM EST

    Blake Griffin

    The Clippers were not going to win the next 50 games, there was going to be a day when the shots would just clang off the rim. There was going to be a night when nothing went right. That night was Jan. 1 in Denver. The Clippers had shot 48.3% last 15 games, and 41.9…

  20. Top 10 NBA dunks of 2012 (VIDEO)

    Jan 1, 2013, 10:31 AM EST

    Blake Griffin, Jared Sullinger

    WIth 2012 officially in the books, it’s time to look back on the top 10 dunks of the past year. And just as we all expected, Byron Mullens makes the list and kicks things off at number 10. Yeah, I don’t know either. But his flying jam down the lane after getting his own rebound…

  21. Top 10 NBA bloopers of 2012 (VIDEO)

    JaVale McGee

    As we count down to the new year, let’s relive some of the lighter NBA moments of 2012 that we were fortunate enough to experience. At 10, we have Lamar Odom saying he’s with the Lakers in his first season with the Clippers. Wishful thinking, my friend. At 9, we have Omer Asik tipping the…

  22. Video: Blake Griffin’s between-the-legs warmup slam

    Dec 31, 2012, 11:04 AM EST

    Blake Griffin

    What’s crazy is how nonchalant Blake Griffin is about this dunk. You know, just your usual between-the-legs slam one throws down every day. Which I guess if you are Blake Griffin you do, but still. He and the Clippers are a walking, talking highlight show. But one that is defending well, forcing turnovers and that…

  23. Hornets guard Eric Gordon activated and expected to make debut

    Dec 29, 2012, 6:06 PM EST

    Eric Gordon

    After playing in just nine games last season and zero so far this year, Eric Gordon is finally set to return tonight against the Charlotte Bobcats. It’s been so long that it’s easy to forget just how good Gordon was with the Clippers two seasons ago. The stocky shooting guard averaged 22 points a game…

  24. Want to know if the Clippers are for real? Ask the Celtics (who lost to them by 29)

    Dec 28, 2012, 3:11 AM EST

    Blake Griffin, Jared Sullinger

    I’ve done some sports talk radio spots the last few days around the nation and this still seems to be the question on a lot of sports fans lips: Are the Clippers really that good? Like title contender good? Why don’t you go ask Doc Rivers or the Celtics? Or Rajon Rondo? Or Paul Pierce?…

  25. No changes atop latest All-Star voting, but Lin and Bosh could sneak in

    Dec 27, 2012, 2:54 PM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    NBA fans around the globe love Kobe Bryant. Stunning, I know. The latest update on the NBA All-Star voting is out and there are no changes among the starters for either conference — but it’s starting to get close for a few guys. What is different is that Kobe moved past LeBron James as the…
