Blake Griffin

  1. Kobe, LeBron, Howard lead NBA All-Star starters

    Feb 2, 2012, 7:20 PM EDT

    2011 NBA All-Star Game

    Well fans, you got the game you wanted. And it should be a good one (as defenseless exhibitions go). Good on ya. The NBA has announced the starters for the All-Star game, as voted in by the fans. Usually there are a painful choice or two, but this year it’s a solid group. We can…

  2. Report: Clippers will offer Kenyon Martin mini mid-level

    Feb 2, 2012, 12:47 PM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    Kenyon Martin and the Clippers look like a marriage that could work. Martin wants to be on a contender, the Clippers are starting to look like one but they need depth along the front line and experience (both of which Martin brings). He wants consistent minutes, he can get them in Los Angeles (the drop…

  3. Video: Blake Griffin’s dunk in Taiwanese animation

    Something is not a pop culture phenomenon until it’s been done in Taiwanese animation. So, welcome to the big stage, Blake Griffin. The best part is him taking the podium away from LeBron James. Hat tip to Eye on Basketball and I am a GM.

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Sixers are legit

    Feb 2, 2012, 5:52 AM EDT

    iguodala

    What you missed while rock climbing with your 2-year-old strapped to your back… Sixers 98, Bulls 82: The 76ers are legit. That fast start wasn’t the soft schedule, they are a quality squad. Good ball movement will beat even the best defense, and that’s what the story was here. They have balance — five guys…

  5. Kevin Durant calls monster Griffin dunk “a layup”

    Feb 1, 2012, 6:11 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin Clippers Thunder

    Kevin Durant was not very talkative after his Thunder squad got their heads handed to them by the Clippers Monday night. Not surprisingly. The entire Thunder team was frustrated. After the game a reporter asked Durant if he got a good look at that Blake Griffin’s monster dunk over Kendrick Perkins. He responded, “I don’t…

  6. Video: Which was better, Griffin’s Mozgov or Perkins dunk?

    Jan 31, 2012, 11:53 AM EDT

    griffin_dunk

    They have similarities. Both came off a wing pick-and-roll where the defense went with the point guard. Both were over a tall man wearing blue. But which was better, Blake Griffin‘s dunk over Timofey Mozgov last year or his throwdown over Kendrick Perkins Monday night? I vote Perkins, because he tried to defend it. But…

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Orlando with another bad outing

    Jan 31, 2012, 9:29 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, J.J. Redick

    What you missed while realizing that Homeland Security is monitoring your tweets…. Clippers 112, Thunder 100: There was a lot more to this than just Blake Griffin dunking on Kendrick Perkins, which is why it was our game of the night. Sixers 74, Magic 69: The Magic were just terrible shooting the ball in this…

  8. Kendrick Perkins on Blake Griffin dunk: “It happens.”

    Jan 31, 2012, 3:20 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    For a guy who was all over YouTube and twitter as the latest victim of a monster Blake Griffin dunk, Kendrick Perkins was philosophical after the game. “It happens,” Perkins said in the corner of the Thunder locker room. “A the end of the day if you’re a shot blocker, you’re going to get dunked…

  9. When you mention contenders, consider the Clippers

    Jan 31, 2012, 2:45 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin Clippers Thunder

    Sunday night, the Clippers went into the thin air of Denver and knocked off the Nuggets, the deepest and most steady team in the West (with the second best record in the conference). Monday night they faced a rested Oklahoma City Thunder team and ran the team to best in the West out of the…

  10. Video: Dunk of the year, Blake Griffin destroys Perkins

    Jan 31, 2012, 12:20 AM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    In a season plus of insane Blake Griffin highlights, what he did to Kendrick Perkins of the Oklahoma City Thunder Monday night may be the baddest a– of them all. This was better than the dunk over Timofey Mozgov. First, because Perkins went up and tried to contest it. Second, because it is Kendrick Perkins,…

  11. Blake Griffin heads 2012 rookie deal extension class

    Jan 27, 2012, 2:24 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Blake Griffin slam dunks against Memphis Grizzlies Hamed Haddadi of Iran and Dante Cunningham during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook got theirs. Kevin Love got a deal, as did Danilo Gallinari. Eric Gordon and Brook Lopez did not. And nobody seriously considered giving Michael Beasley one. It’s the first extension to the rookie contract — the first chance for NBA players to make serious, serious money. But as we saw…

  12. Chris Paul wants Pau Gasol to know he’s not his kid

    Jan 26, 2012, 1:27 PM EDT

    los-angeles-lakers, Kobe, Chris Paul, Pau Gasol, Clippers

    There is starting to be a real rivalry is Los Angeles. It showed up in a little end of game sequence from the Lakers win over the Clippers Wednesday night between Chris Paul and Pau Gasol. Chris Paul was walking near Pau Gasol and Kobe Bryant and all were talking a little when Gasol reached…

  13. Video: Blake Griffin was a highlight reel against Lakers

    Jan 26, 2012, 9:06 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Blake Griffin had it going on against the Lakers — he was in rare highlight form. Even for him. So we’re bringing a few to you. It was more than just the dunks, by the way — Griffin was 6-of-9 from 10 feet out to the arc. He is far from consistent on his midrange…

  14. Gasol, Bryant end Lakers’ losing streak, spoil Paul’s return to the court

    Jan 26, 2012, 2:37 AM EDT

    Pau Gasol, DeAndre Jordan

    The Los Angeles Clippers held the lead over the Lakers for most of the game on Wednesday night, but were unable to put the game away at any point, and ended up succumbing to the Lakers because of Pau Gasol‘s aggressive play and yet another late-game takeover by a Mr. Kobe Bryant. The Clippers got…

  15. NBA quarter pole awards: Yes, LeBron is the MVP

    Jan 24, 2012, 2:37 PM EDT

    Miami Heats' LeBron James plays against the Philadelphia 76ers during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    We are a quarter of the way into the NBA season, which is far too early to start talking about end of the season awards, playoffs or much of anything else. I’m going to anyway. Here are the awards in a few categories as we reach the quarter pole. We’ve got a long back stretch…

  16. All-Star rookies vs. sophomores game may see changes

    Jan 23, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    john-wall-021811

    It’s one of the “highlights” — and we use the term loosely — of Friday night of All-Star weekend: NBA rookies taking on NBA sophomores (officially called the Rookie Challenge). There’s a lot of showboating and not a lot of defense — basically a less interesting version of the All-Star game itself. But this year…

  17. Report: Magic may keep Howard, try to land Steve Nash

    Jan 20, 2012, 4:19 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    More and more, it feels like the Orlando Magic may not trade Dwight Howard — despite Howard’s trade request still being on the table — do what they can to keep him and roll the dice that he doesn’t opt out of his contract and walk away leaving them nothing this summer. How do they…

  18. Friday And-1 links: JaVale McGee’s mom loves her son

    Jan 20, 2012, 11:10 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    Welcome to our 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). JaVale McGee’s mom loves her son, even if her defense of him shows a few blind spots. As a parent, I can relate… except my kids…

  19. NBA All-Star starting teams pretty much set already

    Jan 19, 2012, 2:48 PM EDT

    All-star-nba-logo0103_rdax

    You can keep voting on the NBA All-Star Game players through the end of the month — you can vote every day between now and then, if your heart so desires. It’s not going to matter, the All-Star Game starters are pretty locked in. The NBA released the second round of All-Star balloting returns on…

  20. Video: Chauncey Billups hits game winner for Clippers

    Jan 19, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Billups game winner

    One play before this, the youngster D’Andre Jordan made a defensive mistake sliding off Jason Terry to get back to Ian Mahinmi, and we thought we’d be showing a Jason Terry three in this space. Instead, it’s Chauncey Billups. At the end of games he has to be one of the most feared Clippers, the…

  21. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s Bizzaro World night in NBA

    Jan 19, 2012, 8:05 AM EDT

    Andray Blatche Wizards

    What you missed while watching the Australian Open and thinking “I need to go to vacation there”…. Wizards 105, Thunder 102: Yes, you are reading that right. The worst team in the NBA (1-12 entering the game) just beat a title contender (12-2 before this started). It gets weirder — Oklahoma City shot 48.1 percent…

  22. Clippers not willing to trade Blake Griffin for Dwight Howard

    Jan 18, 2012, 6:42 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    We all knew this instinctively, because it’s the only smart choice. Now maybe this rumor can die. League officials have confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that while Dwight Howard may have interest in them the Clippers are not willing to trade Blake Griffin for Howard — and the Magic are not interested in the…

  23. Feared Blake Griffin, Chris Paul pick-and-roll lacks the roll

    Jan 18, 2012, 3:07 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Los Angeles Clippers

    From the second Blake Griffin said “lob city,” every one of us pictured his pick-and-roll with Chris Paul as potentially the most devastating play in the NBA. We pictured unstoppable dunks. So far, not so much. Through 11 games this season, Blake Griffin has gotten a shot attempt as the roll man in the pick-and-roll…

  24. However you build it, U.S. Olympic team will be very good

    Jan 17, 2012, 2:10 PM EDT

    Krzyzewski & Kobe Bryant

    We don’t know exactly what the U.S. Olympic team will look like in London. We know the pool of players — the 20 finalists — the roster will come from. And we know a couple other things: Mike Krzyzewski and staff have some hard choices ahead of them. This team will be very, very good.…

  25. Tuesday And-1 links: Portland’s sell out streak in jeopardy

    Jan 17, 2012, 11:07 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Welcome to our 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). Portland’s 166 game sellout streak is in danger of coming to an end. Which speaks more to the condensed schedule and the economy than it does…
