Blake Griffin

  1. We’ve played 20 games, let’s give out some awards

    Dec 8, 2010, 12:51 PM EDT

    CPaul-layup

    There’s a lot of people around the league that say you don’t really know much until you’re about 20 games into an NBA season, then the patterns have established themselves. Well, we’re about 20 games in now, one quarter of the season gone. Patterns are established. So… Let’s give out some first-quarter awards to players…

  2. Derek Fisher now your NBA consecutive games played leader

    Dec 8, 2010, 9:44 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Derek Fisher has played in 434 consecutive NBA regular season games — the longest such streak in the NBA. That is 5.3 seasons without a turned ankle or sore back keeping him out of the starting rotation. The streak had belonged to Portland’s Andre Miller at 632 until he sat out due to a suspension…

  3. Blazers Andre Miller, Clippers Brian Cook get suspensions

    Dec 6, 2010, 6:44 PM EDT

    For a game that wasn’t all that close, there was some chippy play in the Clippers and Blazers Sunday tilt. Chippy enough for the league to take notice and hand out its form of justice — Los Angeles’ Brian Cook has been suspended two games for a harsh flagrant two on Joel Pryzbilla (he flattened…

  4. Video to start your week — Top 10 Dunks of November

    Dec 6, 2010, 8:13 AM EDT

    Is there a better way to start your week than that cup of coffee and videos of Andre Iguodala, Blake Griffin and Russell Westbrook making posters? No, of course there isn’t. We’ll, unless you’ve got a nice bagel to go with it. Either way, enjoy.

  5. Blake Griffin has made the Clippers (yes, those Clippers) trendy

    Dec 1, 2010, 1:52 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    A couple weeks ago, Denver’s J.R. Smith popped up on twitter and asked if Blake Griffin was playing that night because he wanted to watch. He’s not alone — players around NBA locker rooms are talking about Griffin with an awe of his athleticism usually reserved for guys named LeBron. And count LeBron James in…

  6. This season’s top rebounders on pace for all-time mark

    Nov 29, 2010, 5:10 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Minnesota Timberwolves

    The NBA has seen a lot of fantastic rebounders in its history, but never before has the the league seen so many prolific board men grace its courts at one time. Even during the all-or-nothing days, the Vanishing Point days, the Dirty Mary Crazy Larry days, the NBA typically boasted just one or a few…

  7. We could do this everyday… more Blake Griffin highlights

    Nov 26, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    BGriffin_dunk2

    Maybe you missed what Blake Griffin did to the Kings on Thanksgiving (25 points, 15 boards), but Shaquille O’Neal didn’t. Nor did LeBron James. Both of them tweeted during the game they were watching Blake Griffin — and they are not alone. Guys around the league are taking notice. Personally, just can’t get enough Griffin…

  8. Games of the night: Where the Clippers pair beats the Kings pair

    Nov 26, 2010, 9:33 AM EDT

    gordon_griffin_clippers

    We hope you missed these games because you were with family and giving thanks, or at least because you were rooting against the Cowboys… Hawks 116, Wizards 96: The Hawks played their best game in a couple weeks, which started with them getting the ball inside. With JaVale McGee and Andray Blatche the Wizards have…

  9. Game of the Night: Clippers keep Paul in check, stun Hornets

    Nov 23, 2010, 2:35 AM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe, Chris Paul

    Well, that was unexpected. Monday’s game was supposed to be more of a welcome-to-the-Hornets party for new acquisition Jarrett Jack, but an actual basketball game ended up taking place between the 11-1 Hornets and the 1-13 Clippers. That’s surprising enough; the stunning thing is that the Clippers actually ended up winning the game. The Hornets…

  10. Quote of the Night: Monty Williams on Blake Griffin

    Nov 22, 2010, 10:13 PM EDT

    Griffin Dunk

    “We treat [Blake Griffin] like an All-Star. He can have those kinds of games all the time. We don’t treat him any differently than we would treat Amar’e Stoudemire. Those guys, you have to guard with team defense instead of one guy. He’s talented and explosive. The future’s bright here in L.A.” – Hornets coach…

  11. Fear Blake Griffin. Fear. Him.

    Nov 21, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    BGriffin_dunk2

    Yes, the Clippers suck. Yes, they lost — again — to the New York Knicks Saturday night. But Blake Griffin is a beast. A physical force. A highlight reel. A reason to actually watch Clippers games. He had 44 points and 15 rebounds against the Knicks. We know you didn’t spend your Saturday night watching…

  12. Deron Williams decides to go ahead and kill the Clips on his schedule

    Nov 7, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/_rXD2AGob0c?fs=1&hl=en_US" height="205" width="320" /]

    The Clippers battled last night. They really did. Without Baron Davis (fatness), without Blake Griffin (fouled out), without Eric Gordon (injury), they still managed to tie the Jazz with 7 seconds to go in double overtime. Then, of course, Deron Williams decided he’d played enough minutes and would like to go home. Williams took the…

  13. Game of the Night: The Clippers are fun. Not good, that’s the Spurs. But fun.

    Nov 2, 2010, 2:59 AM EDT

    Griffin_dunk3

    The Clippers are dynamic. They are athletic. They are fast and fun and give you monster dunks. They are not yet a basketball team, not in the true sense, not one that is going to win consistently in the NBA. The Spurs are what we thought they were — a relentless execution machine. A team.…

  14. In case you missed it: Blake Griffin can sky

    Oct 29, 2010, 6:35 PM EDT

    The Clippers and Blake Griffin take on Golden State tonight and that might be must-watch television. Yes, “Clippers” and “must watch” in the same sentence, but it’s Griffin. The man just skies, and in what should be a wide open game he should have chances. Plus Griffin on David Lee should be s show.

  15. Blake Griffin is must watch. Baron Davis is still Baron Davis.

    Oct 28, 2010, 1:50 PM EDT

    BGriffin_dunk2

    My god Blake Griffin. This was his first NBA basket, and it wasn’t even his best of the night. The guy electrified Staples Center had had people talking about him being the second best basketball player in Los Angeles right now. (Fourth or fifth may be more accurate, which after one game is gigantic.) Every…

  16. Baseline to Baseline (your game recaps): Where the Clippers are fun to watch

    Oct 28, 2010, 4:27 AM EDT

    BGriffin_dunk

    Our game of the night was Kevin Durant doing Durant like things all over the Bulls in the closing minutes. Which was a great choice because after the slog of ugly basketball that was much of Heat/Celtics opening night we needed new energy. But that wasn’t the only good show Wednesday night. Blake Griffin’s first…

  17. Top 10 dunks of the preseason

    Oct 26, 2010, 10:58 AM EDT

    Tonight we put the preseason behind us for good and embrace the new season. But before we go, how about a quick look back at the top 10 dunks of the preseason? Just because the games don’t count doesn’t mean the dunks are any less fun.

  18. NBA Season Preview: Los Angeles Clippers

    Oct 22, 2010, 6:06 PM EDT

    Clippers_huddle

    Last season: 29-53, a season that seemed lost when Blake Griffin fractured his kneecap landing after a monster dunk in the preseason. But only the Clippers can find ways to bring that down even farther: there was the Mike Dunleavy firing (which is on its way to court), Baron Davis checked out mentally, then there…

  19. See Blake Griffin dunk.

    Oct 20, 2010, 6:13 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    In honor of the Harvard Sports Analysis Collective’s correlative study linking winning and dunking — and in honor of everything that is good and awesome in this world — we have a special treat for you today. Few players in the league have been on-highlight-par with Blake Griffin throughout the preseason, and the NBA was…

  20. Blake Griffin misses game with sprained ankle… don’t go there. This is different.

    Oct 18, 2010, 11:17 AM EDT

    griffin_dunk

    Blake Griffin sat out the Clippers preseason game Sunday night with a sprained ankle and… Don’t go there. Just don’t. This is a tweak of the ankle, not some major knee issue, Clippers coach Vinny del Negro told the LA Times. “To be honest with you, I was kind of thinking about giving him the…

  21. Saturday Starting Five: Your Preseason Rookie Report

    Oct 16, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    griffcli

    Hey, so, you’re stuck with me on the weekends, so I thought we’d put together something you can count on. Every weekend here at PBT we’ll have the Saturday Starting Five. Five elements, chosen thematically (so I’m not just basically vomiting words onto a screen for you) and brought for discussion about the NBA. Today’s…

  22. As no games have been played, Clippers still very optimistic. Especially about Blake Griffin.

    Oct 4, 2010, 11:39 AM EDT

    On paper, the Clippers are a good team. All of us not named Clipper Daryl are tempered in our enthusiasm, based on history. And a deep Western conference. But you can see why there would be optimism, we just need to see it on the court. Craig Smith has seen that optimism on the court,…

  23. Don’t forget that Blake Griffin is really, really good

    Sep 30, 2010, 11:44 AM EDT

    Out if sight, out of mind. We didn’t see Blake Griffin in one NBA game last season as he recovered from knee surgery, so… The guy is still very, very good. He went No. 1 overall for a reason. Do not forget that. He is back and already wowing teammates in camp, as Eric Pincus…

  24. Other rookies think John Wall is good, too

    Sep 19, 2010, 10:47 AM EDT

    It’s not just you, me and every scout on the planet that thinks John Wall is going to be very good. So do his fellow rookies. During the rookie photo shoot last month, the league’s rookies took a survey about their expectations for the coming year (and John Schuhmann of NBA.com had the results). The…

  25. Blake Griffin, Eric Gordon are nice, but Clippers season really about Baron Davis

    Sep 8, 2010, 2:53 PM EDT

    When Baron Davis is good, he is very good. Just ask the Mavericks. When he is bad… well there goes another missed pull up three 10 seconds into the shot clock. There is a lot of potential in Clipper land this season — Blake Griffin is back and will play. Eric Gordon is showing what…
