  1. Thunder 117, Clippers 111: A Chris Paul survival guide

    Nov 22, 2012, 1:44 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    Chris Paul is terrifying, and he knows it. Paul doesn’t score just to score — he does it to establish the threat. When you’re 6-foot-nothing in a league filled with giants, you manipulate instead of overwhelm. Paul can have 6 points and it will feel like he’s dominating, just because he made his shadow look…

  2. Clippers 92, Spurs 87: Making a list, checking it twice

    Nov 20, 2012, 1:52 AM EDT

    Matt Barnes, Manu Ginobili

    Doubting the legitimacy of the Los Angeles Clippers is not a new or particularly uncommon practice. Despite laying waste to the Grizzlies, Spurs, Lakers and Heat in convincing fashion already, there was a sense that this would be the first true test for the Clippers. They’d be out on the road, against the team that…

  3. Video: Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan with steals, lobs, slams

    Nov 18, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    There are other contenders for the title, but the Clippers remain the king of highlights. In part because they have Blake Griffin and D’Andre Jordan — the most athletic front line in the NBA. But mostly because they have Chris Paul — watch the lobs on the second of these dunks, almost a volleyball set…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Memphis can flat out ball

    Nov 12, 2012, 1:53 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Marreese Speights

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while thinking maybe you should lay off those breakfast sandwiches…. Lakers 103, Kings 90: The Lakers are 2-0 in the Bernie Bickerstaff era and all anybody wants to talk about is Phil Jackson. We break it all down right here. Grizzlies…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs lose and we have a DeAndre Jordan sighting

    Nov 8, 2012, 7:34 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while you were watching the first episode of the new season of Top Chef and thinking you could make an omelet…. Jazz 95, Lakers 86: Well, that was about as ugly as the Lakers have looked this season. Utah’s front line…

  6. Blake Griffin to play through burst bursa sac in right elbow

    Nov 6, 2012, 10:21 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Blake Griffin is shooting 45.1 percent this young season, a dramatic drop off from the 54.9 percent of last season. The result is he is scoring 16.3 points per game, down from 20.7 last season, and he is doing it far less efficiently. After the Clippers loss to the Cavaliers we found out why —…

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs, Knicks remain undefeated

    Nov 6, 2012, 4:42 AM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace, Tyson Chandler

    Our nightly recap of every game around the NBA. We catch you up on what you missed while you were finding out where Superman’s home planet Krypton actually was…. Spurs 101, Pacers 79: Don’t look now, but the Spurs are defending again this year. Which is how they crushed the Pacers. We broke it down.…

  8. David Lee tells Blake Griffin to ‘stop flopping’ (VIDEO)

    Nov 4, 2012, 11:00 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, David Lee

    It’s honestly a surprise that this doesn’t happen more often. Mid-way through the fourth quarter of the Warriors’ win over the Clippers on Saturday, David Lee didn’t appreciate the way Blake Griffin reacted to some contact underneath the basket. Likely dealing with this in varying degrees all night, Lee had a message for Griffin, and…

  9. Lakers identity crisis runs into confident Clippers, result is 0-3 Lakers

    Nov 3, 2012, 3:16 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES — The Clippers know who they are. They are Chris Paul’s team, Lob City, a lot of pick-and-roll, Jamal Crawford breaking guys ankles, Blake Griffin attacking the rim The Lakers are… still trying to figure it out. Through three games the Lakers have tried on more personalities than an 13-year-old girl. And none…

  10. Why didn’t Dwight Howard and Chris Paul end up playing together?

    Nov 1, 2012, 11:00 PM EDT

    2009 NBA All-Star Game

    Today’s NBA is nothing like the eras of the league that have long since passed. Picture Michael Jordan recruiting Isiah Thomas to join the Bulls, or Larry Bird trying to coerce Magic Johnson into leaving L.A. for the bright lights cold weather and rickety conditions of the ancient Boston Garden. Exactly — it just wasn’t…

  11. A guide for which teams to watch

    Oct 30, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Steve Nash, Dwight Howard, Metta World Peace, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol

    Our ideas of fun may be completely different. Personally, I like to pretend I’m playing Supermarket Sweep in the grocery store, but you may like going out on “dates” or “talking to actual people.” With that said, I can’t in good faith tell you which teams will be fun this year. That’s a decision for…

  12. Four teams that could head off a Lakers vs. Heat NBA final

    Oct 29, 2012, 2:42 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    It’s the consensus of prognosticators (and me as well) — the NBA finals will be the Miami Heat vs. Los Angeles Lakers. Kobe Bryant vs. LeBron James. You can already sense David Stern drooling like a Pavlovian dog thinking about the television ratings. What teams could destroy David Stern’s dream? There are four. While we…

  13. Video: Blake Griffin helps his younger self in clever Kia ads

    Oct 29, 2012, 2:29 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Blake Griffin has just found his groove in front of the camera. He’s got a great, dry  sense of humor that works really well with the right material. These ads from Kia are the right material. Pretty funny stuff. Personally, I’d be afraid of what 10-year-old me would say back to current me if I…

  14. Video: Griffin, Clippers dance Gangnam style on the bench

    Oct 29, 2012, 11:36 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Blake Griffin

    If DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin are doing the dance on the bench, has said dance jumped the shark? Can we move on now? Well their ain’t no dance party like a Caron Butler dance party, and it was going onto Psy’s “Gangnam Style”  during the Clippers final preseason game. What I enjoy most is…

  15. Count LeBron among those impressed with Anthony Davis

    Oct 28, 2012, 7:01 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    We all knew Anthony Davis was potentially a very special player — some scouts graded him out as the best player in years, better than Blake Griffin or a host of other recent No. 1 overall picks. But he was supposed to be a bit of a project on offense, a guy with potential that…

  16. Lamar Odom says he doesn’t think he’ll be ready for opener

    Oct 27, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom was expected to be a steal for the Clippers — they needed frontcourt depth behind Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan and if the former Sixth Man of the Year could return to form them could provide that and more. Well, he can when he’s on the court. Which may well not be season…

  17. Video: Another day, another CP3 to Blake Griffin ally-oop

    Oct 26, 2012, 8:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul puts his arm around teammate Griffin during NBA basketball game against the Memphis Grizzlies in Los Angeles

    They make it look routine. There are challengers to the “most entertaining team in the NBA” crown that for my money the Clippers still have. OKC is always good, Denver is going to be one of those teams this year but the Clippers are just fun. They have Chris Paul throwing lobs to Blake Griffin.…

  18. Video: Bledsoe no-look to DeAndre Jordan ally-oop slam

    Oct 25, 2012, 2:12 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    You can take Chris Paul and Blake Griffin out of the picture, and the Clippers still have the best highlights in the land. This was Eric Bledsoe with the no-look ally-oop pass to DeAndre Jordan (who has had some impressive nights this preseason). And there you have the dunk of the night. Other teams will…

  19. Five players that need a change of scenery

    Oct 23, 2012, 9:41 PM EDT

    Kevin Martin

    Breakups are never fun, but sometimes it just has to be done. Maybe there’s someone new, or things have become stale, or both parties just need to go a different direction. The following is a list of five talented players who could really use the “it’s not you, it’s me” speech from their current teams.…

  20. The case for why Chris Paul is staying with the Clippers

    Oct 21, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is technically back in that same spot so many stars have been in over the past few years which has resulted in a transition of teams. He’s a free agent at the end of this season with his contract expiring. He would have been a free agent this summer but as part of…

  21. Del Negro says Odom will work way into shape “eventually”

    Oct 18, 2012, 2:18 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom, Caron Butler

    The Clippers needed depth along the front line and signing Lamar Odom, just a couple years removed from being the Sixth Man of the Year, seemed like a good fit. That is, if his head was in the right place and he wasn’t lost like he spent the last year with the Mavericks. Apparently his…

  22. Video: Another day, another CP3 to Griffin ally-oop dunk

    Oct 18, 2012, 10:53 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul celebrates with Griffin after Griffin scored against the Memphis Grizzlies during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    What does it say about us as fans that this kind of play between two of the league’s superstars is so routine as to make us think “that was nice, but they’ve done much better?” Anyway, here is Chris Paul‘s ally-opp to Blake Griffin in transition from Wednesday night against the Jazz. Monster jam. Yawn.…

  23. Apparently Jarrett Jack gets the first warning about flopping

    Oct 17, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets

    Is there flopping in the preseason? Apparently. At least someone in the league office in New York thinks so. Golden State point guard Jarrett Jack tweeted this on Wednesday: So I’ve been warned for flopping hahaha smdh — JARRETT JACK (@Jarrettjack03) October 16, 2012 If you want to bask in some irony for a moment,…

  24. Odds on NBA MVP (yes, LeBron leads), Rookie of Year

    Oct 17, 2012, 2:23 PM EDT

    James of the U.S. hugs teammate Durant after their game against Lithuania at their men's preliminary round Group A basketball match at the Basketball Arena during the London 2012 Olympic Games

    If you don’t have LeBron James, Kevin Durant on top of your “most likely to win the MVP” list you’re doing it wrong. Professional odds makers don’t do it wrong. So when the guys at offshore book Bovada put together a list, you know who is at the top. But the real value is farther…

  25. NBA season preview: L.A. Clippers

    Oct 16, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    Last Season: Perhaps it was the start of a cultural change in Clipperland, or maybe it was simply the beginning of a very short-term spike of relative success. Either way, your 2011-12 Clippers were competitive, fun to watch, and a team that made its way into the playoffs — three qualities that have been completely…
