Blake Griffin

  1. Grizzlies steal Clippers’ script — come from behind to win, force Game 7

    May 12, 2012, 1:26 AM EDT

    Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Kenyon Martin, Blake Griffin

    In the first four games of this series, Chris Paul owned the fourth quarter, while at the same time the Grizzlies would get away from their game plan of pounding the Clippers inside with Zach Randolph. It’s why Los Angeles had a 3-1 series lead. There will be a Game 7 Sunday because that script…

  2. Chris Paul, Blake Griffin to start for Clippers, may be limited

    May 11, 2012, 8:05 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    They will be out there, how effective they are remains to be seen. Both Chris Paul and Blake Griffin will start for the Clippers despite suffering injuries in Game 5, coach Vinny Del Negro confirmed. However, he said he would monitor both and might limit their minutes depending on how they are moving and performing…

  3. Banged-up Clippers look to wrap up Grizzlies in Game 6

    May 11, 2012, 6:03 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

    For Memphis, Game 6 is must win. For the Clippers, it isn’t that (they are up 3-2) but it’s about as close as you can get, because if they have to go win Game 7 on the road they face climbing K2. It’s a big mountain. Which makes Game 6 in Los Angeles on Friday…

  4. MRI shows no structural damage to Griffin’s knee; Paul, Griffin game-time calls

    May 11, 2012, 11:35 AM 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

    I’d be surprised if both are not out on the floor for a crucial Game 6, but officially both Chris Paul and Blake Griffin are game-time decisions due to their injuries suffered in Game 5 Wednesday. Griffin had an MRI on his sprained left knee but it found no structural damage, tweeted Ramona Shelburne of…

  5. Chris Paul, Blake Griffin injured; both expected to play Game 6

    May 10, 2012, 3:50 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin injury

    Please, no more injuries in these playoffs. The Clippers Blake Griffin and Chris Paul both suffered injuries in Los Angeles’ Game 5 loss to Memphis Wednesday — Griffin has a sprained knee after a fall under the basket, Paul aggravated a groin injury going for a rebound. Both will be re-evaluated on Thursday once the…

  6. Grizzlies impose their will, take game 5 from Clippers

    May 10, 2012, 1:01 AM EDT

    Zach Randolph

    With their backs to the wall, the Memphis Grizzlies played the exact game they needed to play to beat the Clippers, and now find themselves one road win away from a Game 7 on their home floor, where they were 26-7 in the regular season and are now 2-1 in the playoffs. The Grizzlies pounded…

  7. Charles Barkley joins growing chorus annoyed with Blake Griffin flopping

    May 8, 2012, 3:24 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, lKenyon Martin

    After last night’s Memphis loss to the Clippers, I asked a couple Memphis players if the Clippers’ theatrics and flopping bothered them. Nobody would go near the topic. Well, Memphis coach Lionel Hollins called Chris Paul a flopper on national television, but even off the record the Memphis players would shake their heads to acknowledge…

  8. Once again Clippers/Grizzlies play it close. Once again Clips have too much Chris Paul.

    May 8, 2012, 3:37 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    Again it was physical and nasty game. Again it was close at the end. Again the Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies fought like two evenly matched teams that just don’t like each other. This time it went all the way to overtime. And Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins said it was the same thing that…

  9. The only series worth watching, Grizzlies try to get even with Clippers

    May 7, 2012, 6:32 PM EDT

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

    In a kind of washout of a first round of the NBA playoffs, the Clippers vs. Grizzlies has been the only series completely watchable for anyone other than diehard fans. (The Oklahoma City wins over Dallas were not bad, but that was a sweep.) This series saw Los Angeles come back from 27 down to…

  10. Video: Chris Paul’s son makes his Blake Griffin face

    May 6, 2012, 9:21 PM EDT

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

    The way he has been playing lately — all season, really — I didn’t think I could like Chris Paul more. Then he brought his son up to the podium with him after the Clippers Game 3 win, had him make his Blake Griffin face and… I like him more. And love his son.

  11. Video: Blake Griffin makes steal, beats buzzer against Griz

    May 6, 2012, 8:06 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin dunks the ball over Memphis Grizzlies' Marreese Speights in the last second of the first half during their NBA Western Conference basketball playoff game in Los Angeles

    In a game that was decided by one point, you can look back at a lot of little things and say “this was the key” to the Clippers taking a 2-1 series lead. But this steal and dunk by Blake Griffin at the end of the first half was a key couple of points. Memphis’…

  12. NBA Playoffs: Can the Clippers assert themselves in Game 3?

    May 5, 2012, 3:37 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Two

    It’s as simple as this: if the Clippers hadn’t pulled off a miracle comeback in Game 1, they would be on the wrong side of a 2-0 deficit coming into Game 3. The Clippers have been dominated for 87 of the 96 minutes played in this series so far, and they desperately need to make…

  13. Video: Top 10 bloopers from NBA regular season

    May 4, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    The fine folks at NBA.com put together a blooper reel from this past season, and it seemed like the one thing that might make Mavericks and Knicks fans smile today. So here you go. I mean, it’s got Dwight Howard eating a cookie, Blake Griffin‘s airball free throws, Vince Carter‘s vintage travel and more. But…

  14. Anthony Davis, James Harden added to Team USA training camp

    May 3, 2012, 6:59 PM EDT

    Kentucky Wildcats' Davis goes to the hoop against Kansas Jayhawks' Withey during the second half of their men's NCAA Final Four championship college basketball game in New Orleans

    Anthony Davis could go straight from winning a national championship with Kentucky to winning an Olympic gold medal with Team USA. Davis, along with Oklahoma City guard James Harden, has been added to the pool of potential candidates that could be selected to represent the United States in London, USA Basketball President Jerry Colangelo announced.…

  15. Kentucky’s Davis draws comparisons to Griffin, Garnett

    May 3, 2012, 10:48 AM EDT

    Final Four - Louisville v Kentucky

    May 30 the NBA Draft Lottery will take place in a state the NBA has abandoned, but most of the time we will be calling the draw the “Anthony Davis Sweepstakes” because Kentucky big man will be the first guy taken in the draft. This is a draft where GMs are saying there could be…

  16. Video: Clippers, Grizzlies threw down some big dunks

    May 3, 2012, 9:04 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v New York Knicks

    Win or lose — and this time it was lose to even the series — the Clippers throw down some huge dunks. DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin had theirs in Game 2 Wednesday. Not to be outdone, Rudy Gay put on a little show and joined the dunk party. It will be interesting to see…

  17. Does Game 2 of Clippers/Grizzlies look like first 40 or last 8 of Game 1?

    May 2, 2012, 5:22 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers

    Any discussion of Game 2 between the Clippers and Grizzlies has to start at the end of Game 1, when a 28-3 run by Los Angeles led to an improbable comeback win. It was devastating to Memphis. Can the Grizzlies put that behind them and bounce back? If the Grizzlies can, will the Clippers be…

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    This summer, the United States will send it’s best 12 best basketball players to London to represent our nation in the Olympic Games. Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban hates the idea, and he’s not alone. This summer will be the 20th anniversary of the original Dream Team and for some the bloom is off the rose.…

  19. USA Basketball may look at new players after Rose injury

    Apr 30, 2012, 8:13 AM EDT

    Rose injury

    Back in January USA Basketball released a list of 20 players, a pool from which the United States basketball team for the London Olympics would be chosen. But due to injuries, that list is down to 15. Derrick Rose’s ACL injury puts him on the shelf, along with Dwight Howard, LaMarcus Aldridge and Chauncey Billups.…

  20. NBA Playoffs: Clippers end game on 28-3 run, win 99-98

    Apr 30, 2012, 12:37 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Zach Randolph

    With 9 minutes and 12 seconds remaining in Game 1 of the Grizzlies-Clippers series, O.J. Mayo hit a 3 to put the Grizzlies up by 24 points in front of their hometown crowd. The Grizzlies were doing everything perfectly: Mayo and Mike Conley were on fire from beyond the arc, the Clippers had no answers…

  21. Quote of the Day: Blake Griffin might not make it

    Apr 28, 2012, 12:20 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Blake Griffin has heard the playoffs are quite physical. “If it gets any more [physical], I might not make it,” he said today, half-kidding. — Baxter Holmes (@BaxterHolmes) April 28, 2012 Haha, it’s funny, because he may wind up with a collapsed lung and everyone will still think he’s faking. Haha, that’s funny… wait, no…

    Tyson-Chandler-and-Mike-Krzyzewski

    When USA Basketball announced the pool of players it would choose from to select who would represent the USA at the London Olympics this summer, there were 20 names. Now, there are 16 who can go. Dwight Howard (back), LaMarcus Aldridge (hip) and Chauncey Billups (Achilles) are out due to injury and surgery, while Lamar…

  24. Derrick Rose tops NBA jersey sales list, Jeremy Lin second

    Apr 26, 2012, 10:25 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose celebrates after teammate Luol Deng was fouled while shooting by Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The last time a lot of people wanted to wear a Bulls jersey was… oh, yea, back when the Bobcats owner played for them. Derrick Rose has a long way to go before he is mentioned in the same breath with Michael Jordan, but he is filling in that gap in some ways. For example,…

  25. Kobe says Griffin needs to “smack the f— out of somebody”

    Apr 26, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin

    It’s been a big concern for the Clippers, the hard fouls Blake Griffin has started to take. From Jason Smith to Robin Lopez guys are getting ejected knocking Griffin around, and other guys are not getting ejected for some physical play on the Clippers star. Kobe Bryant has been there and says Griffin needs to…
