  1. Clippers crossroads: Is Vinny Del Negro’s job in danger?

    Mar 22, 2012, 10:23 AM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro

    The Clippers are regressing. They have gone 7-11 since Chauncey Billups went down with his Achilles injury and they have looked a mess, including a blowout loss to the Thunder Wednesday. The Clippers have not played good defense all season but early on their offense was able to overwhelm teams — Chris Paul in the…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Five in a row for the Knicks

    Mar 22, 2012, 9:03 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Jrue Holiday

    What you missed while being thankful a rogue boulder didn’t destroy your home and car… Knicks 82, Sixers 79: This was the ugliest win for the Knicks on their five-game winning streak, but it may also be the best. Not the best because it moves them within three games of the struggling Sixers in the…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Heat hotter than the Suns

    Mar 21, 2012, 9:31 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem drives to the basket against the Phoenix Suns in the first half during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    What you missed while wondering why someone whose job it was to smuggle cocaine into the United States would get the personalized license plate “SMUGLER”… Heat 99, Suns 95: It looked like the Suns had a road upset in their pocket — they led most of the fourth quarter and were up 10 with just…

  4. Could ‘Melo’s role with D’Antoni cost him a spot on Team USA?

    Mar 20, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Jason Kidd, Olympics

    Mike Krzyzewski and the coaches of Team USA have some very tough decisions ahead of them as they trim the list of 20 candidates down to 12 who get to suit up in London this summer for the Olympics. Look at the power forward spot. You only really need three and the guys on that…

  5. Video: Blake Griffin takes seat in front row, drives up drycleaning bills

    Mar 19, 2012, 11:21 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    I suppose if you can afford front row seats to an NBA game, you can afford the dry cleaning bill that is going to come with Blake Griffin spilling beer all over you. Now, whether you can afford another beer at the Staples Center prices is another matter. (Why is it you pay more for…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bosh looks good in Heat victory

    Mar 19, 2012, 3:10 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwight Howard

    What you missed while thinking a new study proves your children are brilliant…. Heat 91, Magic 81: Everybody talks about the big man the Heat could use. We often underestimate Chris Bosh — he had 23 points on 13 shots. Dwyane Wade owned the fourth quarter with 14 of his 31 coming then, when the…

  7. Video: Another day, another monster slam from Blake Griffin

    Mar 18, 2012, 12:02 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Blake Griffin is going to end his career mentioned with Vince Carter, Shawn Kemp and the other great in-game dunkers of the NBA at his peak. Because he does things like this every game. It helps to have Chris Paul feeding you and all, but this guy is a monster. Whether he finishes his career…

  8. Clippers hold hour-long, closed-door meeting after ugly loss

    Mar 16, 2012, 6:35 PM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin

    The Clippers blew a 12-point fourth quarter lead at home to a Phoenix Suns team playing without Steve Nash or Grant Hill. That is pretty much the textbook definition of an ugly loss. The Clippers have had a number of losses lately, most accompanied by some poor end-of-game execution. Take the ball out Chris Paul’s…

  9. Friday And-1 links: Did Wade mock Dwight Howard’s loyalty?

    Mar 16, 2012, 11:06 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard

    Here is our daily 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). Was Dwyane Wade mocking Dwight Howard’s loyalty to the Magic? Kind of looks that way to me. Rudy Gay has cleared the league concussion protocols…

  10. Video: Kenyon Martin still has some hops left

    Mar 16, 2012, 8:26 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    There was a time when Kenyon Martin was one of the more feared dunkers in the league. Enjoy the video above as we travel back to that time… wait, what? This was Thursday night? But he’s 34 now? apparently watching Blake Griffin has rekindled a little of Martin’s ferociousness around the rim.  It’s fun to…

  11. Surveying trade deadline landscape: League’s second tier got better

    Mar 16, 2012, 12:56 AM EDT

    Nick Young

    As you survey the NBA landscape in the aftermath of the storm that is always the NBA trade deadline, and a couple things leap out: First, the title contenders did not change — and they all stood pat. In the East, the path to the finals goes through Miami and Chicago and nobody really moved…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bulls beat Heat even without that Rose guy

    Mar 15, 2012, 9:14 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James is guarded by Chicago Bulls' John Lucas and Luol Deng during their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    What you missed while waiting for Dwight Howard to change his mind again…. Bulls 106, Heat 102: This just shows the different mentalities of these two teams. No Derrick Rose, no Richard Hamilton and yet the Bulls just brought it with fantastic energy. They defended, guys like John Lucas III (24 points) and Jimmy Butler…

  13. Report: Howard likes Clippers, Heat. Please make this stop.

    Mar 12, 2012, 1:05 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Another day, another report that the Orlando Magic are leaning heavily toward keeping Dwight Howard in their camp and trying to convince him to stay. This time it’s in a series of tweets of from Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated we hear that Dwight is staying and that he still has no interest in going…

  14. Clippers not likely to get Ray Allen, won’t risk long term for short

    Mar 12, 2012, 9:48 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    It’s pretty easy to picture the Clippers as a serious threat to the Thunder in the West if they added Ray Allen — the Celtics sharp shooter who takes on the Clippers Monday night. The Clippers have struggled with production from the two guard spot since Chauncey Billups went down with an Achilles tendon injury.…

  15. Baseline to Baseline recaps: What kind of team are the Knicks?

    Mar 12, 2012, 4:07 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    What you missed while thinking if you are going to have two wives you may want to get off Facebook…. Lakers 97, Celtics 94: This rematch of a couple recent finals — which looked like those finals if you squinted really hard — was our game of the day. Sixers 106, Knicks 94: How this…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Night of the living game-winning shot

    Mar 8, 2012, 9:24 AM EDT

    Trevor Booker

    What you missed while realizing you figured out who is going to win the Darwin Award this year…. Sixers 103, Celtics 71: This battle for the top spot in the Atlantic division — and the four seed at least in the playoffs, allowing a team to avoid Miami and Chicago in the first round —…

  17. Timberwolves frustrated with physical play against Rubio

    Mar 7, 2012, 1:12 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio shoots a free throw during their NBA game against Los Angeles Clippers

    Welcome to the NBA, Ricky Rubio. And welcome to having good players again, Minnesota Timberwolves. When you have a good player like Rubio, other teams will target him and do what they can to knock him off his game. Literally, if they can. Other teams are finding that when Rubio has space he picks them…

  18. Video: Was Blake Griffin’s takedown of Luke Ridnour dirty?

    Mar 6, 2012, 2:11 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Blake Griffin is a chippy player. Which he needs to be — he’s a big man who is physical and other teams respond with physicality. If he didn’t push back and hold his ground (both physically and in terms of intimidation) he’d be swept aside. But there is a line there with being chippy and…

  19. Baron Davis says playing for Clippers almost killed his love of the game

    Mar 5, 2012, 12:26 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Right now, the Los Angeles Clippers are the most entertaining team to watch in the NBA. They are athletic, fast paced, smart thanks to Chris Paul at the helm. They are learning to be contenders. There is a buzz around their games that is reminiscent of that other team in Staples Center — the building…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s the Deron Williams show

    Mar 5, 2012, 5:18 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    What you missed while suing your college because your dorm roommate had too much sex… Celtics 115, Knicks 111 (OT): Rajon Rondo dominated Jeremy Lin, put up a monster line — 18 points, 20 assists, 17 rebounds — and got the Celtics a big win in one of our games of the day. Lakers 93,…

  21. Blake Griffin says teams are allowed to be more physical with him than with others

    Mar 3, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Blake Griffin had a tough outing against the Suns on Friday, and had to earn every single one of his 17 points and seven rebounds. Those numbers had little impact on the game, however, and his 4-of-14 shooting through three quarters were a true indication of just how much of a struggle it was for…

  22. Suns shut down Blake Griffin, win ugly over the Clippers

    Mar 3, 2012, 3:39 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Channing Frye, Grant Hill

    As the starting lineups took the floor Friday night in Phoenix for a nationally televised contest between the Clippers and the Suns, the matchup that looked to be far and away the most favorable for L.A. was Channing Frye against Blake Griffin. Griffin, after all, leads the league in dunks, and is so athletically gifted…

  23. Clippers ask long-time fan Clipper Darrell to stop using that name

    Mar 1, 2012, 11:04 AM EDT

    clipper darrell

    This is about brand image and money getting in the way of passion. It’s about misguided loyalty. It’s about the Clippers still being the Clippers. You know Darrell Baily as Clipper Darrell — the most passionate, long-time fan the Clippers have ever had. The guy with the blue-and-red suit (and car to match). He was…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Time to fear Brook Lopez?

    Feb 29, 2012, 6:30 AM EDT

    Deshawn Stevenson

    What you missed while you were spilling beer on the German Chancellor…. Nets 93, Mavericks 92: Dallas, you did a terrible job of trying to impress Deron Williams and make him want to join your roster. Starting late in the third quarter the Mavericks went on an 0-13 shooting streak, they didn’t have a field…

  25. Tuesday And-1 links: Let the trade rumors begin

    Feb 28, 2012, 11:46 AM EDT

    Brook Lopez

    Here is our daily 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). The Golden State Warriors have their eye on Brook Lopez (if that whole “trade for Dwight Howard” thing doesn’t work out for the Nets). Ramon…
