Blake Griffin

  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

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

    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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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.…

  14. 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…

  15. Report: Dwight Howard adds Clippers to list of places he’d sign

    Jan 16, 2012, 6:48 PM EDT

    Magic's Howard meditates just before the tip-off of their NBA basketball game with the New York Knicks in New York

    Dwight Howard with Blake Griffin and Chris Paul? Take that Miami. This would be the new Big Three. Howard apparently likes the idea — almost as much as Clippers fans. No matter how unlikely it is in reality. Howard has added the Clippers to the list of teams he would sign an extension with, reports…

    When USA Basketball sends a dozen players to the Olympics in London this summer, the roster will come from these 20 finalists, released by USA Basketball on Monday: Guards: Dwyane Wade, Deron Williams, Chris Paul, Eric Gordon, Russell Westbrook, Chauncey Billups, Derrick Rose, Kobe Bryant Forwards: LeBron James, Andre Iguodala, Rudy Gay, Kevin Durant, Carmelo…

  17. Monday And-1 links: Schedule wearing everyone down

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    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). Is fatigue setting in for the Chicago Bulls? Maybe a little, but it is the same for every team. Yao Ming is getting into politics in…

  18. Clippers showing a lot of room for improvement… and still winning

    Jan 15, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Chris Paul is still trying to get his guys to know what he wants them to do. Chauncey Billups is still firing away without enough consideration and dribbling like he’s the point guard at times. Caron Butler is still finding his legs. DeAndre Jordan is still adapting to being the anchor of the defense down…

  19. Chis Paul strains hamstring in win over Lakers

    Jan 15, 2012, 2:09 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    During the Clippers’ 102-94 win over the Lakers Saturday night, while Kobe Bryant was shooting his way out of an early game slump on his way to 42 points on 28 shots, Chris Paul was slicing and dicing for 33 of his own on 22 shots. Paul was a monster against the Lakers, and the…

  20. Lakers-Clippers: 5 Things to Watch

    Jan 14, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Clippers' Paul sails to the basket as Lakers' players watch during their NBA preseason game in Los Angeles

    Saturday night is the first matchup of the new-look CP3-lead Clippers against the old guard Los Angeles Lakers. The Showdown at Staples, Part 1. The Lakers are coming in hotter than a pistol behind Kobe Bryant‘s 40-point streak, while the Clippers have also managed to hold on despite some questions about their defense, standing just…

  21. Video: Top 10 plays from Heat vs. Clippers

    Jan 13, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Yes, I know the game was a couple of days ago, but what do you want to watch — Blake Griffin and LeBron James or a parade of guys going to the free throw line from Thursday? Exactly. D’Andre Jordan is all over this highlight mix with blocked shots. You can decide for yourself if…

  22. Rudy Gay says he got Team USA invitation

    Jan 13, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Grizzlies Basketball

    The invitations are going out from USA Basketball to players who will be considered to make up Team USA at the London Olympics this summer. We showed you the initial reported list, Memphis’ Rudy Gay wasn’t on it. But he told the Commercial Appeals he got an invite. USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo called him…

  23. Dwight Howard leads everyone in first All-Star ballot returns

    Jan 12, 2012, 2:58 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    You didn’t love Dwight Howard as much as Derrick Rose and LeBron James when it came time to award the MVP last year (I know you didn’t get to vote on that, neither did I, but sentiment on this site ran heavy to Rose among commenters). But you love him now. Howard, the Magic’s center,…

  24. Video: Dunks galore when Heat meet Clippers

    Jan 12, 2012, 9:15 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Joel Anthony

    The game itself was a pretty sloppy — like so many games this young, condensed season — but the Clippers and the Heat certainly brought the dunks and the highlights. So we thought we’d pass on a few from Blake Griffin and LeBron James. Enjoy.  

  25. LeBron finally aggressive late, but Clippers hand Heat another loss

    Jan 12, 2012, 3:19 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Chris Bosh

    Last year’s “it” team faced off against this year’s “it” squad and fans from both sides got what they wanted. Sort of. They both got a wildly entertaining contest that had the intensity of May. But it came wrapped in a game where it looked like both teams were on the second night of a…
