Blake Griffin

  1. Blake Griffin, Lamar Odom ejected after tussle over hustle

    Jan 17, 2011, 12:33 PM EDT

    James Capers, Ron Artest, Lamar Odom, Randy Foye, Ryan Gomes, Blake Griffin

    The game was over, in any real sense of the word. It was 99-90 Clippers with 5.7 seconds left. Randy Foye would shoot his free throws, the Lakers would dribble out the clock and the Clippers would have beaten their second elite team in a week. But it didn’t end quietly. As Foye shot and…

  2. Why the Clippers are winning — things got simpler and players bought in

    Jan 14, 2011, 1:24 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Clippers

    Wednesday night the Clippers had their coming out party, beating the Miami Heat at their own game — the Clippers were more athletic, they were the ones hitting threes, they were the ones carving up a defense with penetration. Those Clippers are radically different from the ones that started the season 1-13. What happened? While…

  3. Game of the night: The Clippers announce their presence with authority against Heat

    Jan 13, 2011, 3:35 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, LeBron James

    The Clippers have arrived. Not arrived like a powerhouse in the Western Conference. Not even arrived like they will be a playoff team (they dug too big a hole early on to climb out of it). But arrived on the national radar. You need to be watching this team. Wednesday they announced their arrival with…

  4. Funniest part of ‘Melo trade: Nuggets asked about Blake Griffin

    Jan 11, 2011, 11:16 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    Can’t blame a guy for trying, I guess. Of all the crazy rumors flying around the Carmelo Anthony trade scenarios this one (from Marc Stein of ESPN) made me laugh out loud. The Clippers’ Blake Griffin is one of Denver’s dream targets in an Anthony trade, but sources told ESPN.com that those overtures have been…

  5. Nate Robinson thinks the dunk contest is rigged

    Jan 9, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Guard Nate Robinson of the New York Knic

    Nate Robinson is as much an authority on the dunk contest as anyone. He’s the only three-time winner of the thing, even if, well, he’s not really mentioned among the great dunk legends of our time. Part of that is he always seems to win when the competition is weak or someone better slips up.…

  6. JaVale McGee starts practicing for Dunk Contest

    Jan 7, 2011, 1:38 PM EDT

    Brand_McGee_Foul

    At last summer’s USA Basketball tryout and camp, some of the best players walking the planet were in awe of JaVale McGee’s pure athleticism. In a league filled with freak athletes, McGee stands out. Unfortunately, his mind and his game are a long ways from catching up with his body can do. But that athleticism…

  7. New legal filings against Clippers should make Blake Griffin cry

    Any time you feel yourself start to nod in agreement when someone says, “You know, with Blake Griffin and Eric Gordon, the Clippers are a team on the rise,” come back and read this post. ESPN got a hold of more legal filings in former Clipper GM Elgin Baylor’s wrongful termination lawsuit against the team…

  8. Blake Griffin has some “things up my sleeve” for dunk contest

    Jan 5, 2011, 8:58 PM EDT

    BGriffin_dunk

    It wasn’t just basketball fans thinking about Blake Griffin in the All-Star Dunk Contest, apparently he’s been thinking about it, too. In a video interview on NBA.com (via The Rookie Wall), Griffin says in his kind of understated way that he has been thinking about this and may have a few ideas. “I think I’m…

  9. It’s official: Blake Griffin to beat JaVale McGee, Serge Ibaka, Brandon Jennings in dunk contest

    Jan 5, 2011, 3:43 PM EDT

    BGriffin_dunk2

    Word leaked out about this Tuesday night so the NBA decided to just make it official on Wednesday: Your 2011 All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest participants are Blake Griffin (Clippers), JaVale McGee (Wizards), Serge Ibaka (Thunder) and Brandon Jennings (Bucks). Let’s be honest, this is essentially Blake Griffin — on his home court at Staples Center…

  10. Report: Blake Griffin, JaVale McGee, Serge Ibaka, Brandon Jennings in dunk contest

    Jan 5, 2011, 2:23 AM EDT

    Griffin_dunk3

    We thought it looked like Blake Griffin was going to be in the All-Star Weekend dunk contest, and now that appears all but official. This 2011 dunk contest will feature the Clippers Blake Griffin, the Wizards’ JaVale McGee, the Thunder’s Serge Ibaka and the Bucks’ Brandon Jennings, according to the Los Angeles Times. The official…

  11. Leaked video hints Blake Griffin to be in dunk contest

    Jan 5, 2011, 12:48 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    Honestly, if Blake Griffin is not in the dunk contest the whole thing will fail before it even begins. Just like TRON. So good news in the form of a leaked then quickly pulled video found on NBA.com — Griffin may well be in. The link was found by the blog Get Banged On (a…

  12. LeBron on dunk contest: “Blake Griffin has home court advantage”

    Dec 31, 2010, 7:22 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    LeBron James admitted to the Associated Press that he thinks about entering the dunk contest All-Star weekend, but he hesitates. One of the game’s best dunkers, James acknowledged Friday that he often considers committing to be part of the field, then finds himself waffling. James said at some points he tells himself, “Yeah, I’m going…

  13. One last Blake Griffin highlight package for 2010

    Dec 31, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Each year on New Year’s Eve we should look back at what we are thankful for in the previous year. I’m thankful for a lot of things — this blog and the chance to run it, the great people I work with (Matt Moore, Rob Mahoney and John Krolik) and all of you for taking…

  14. Blake Griffin with another spectacular dunk. Yawn.

    Dec 27, 2010, 9:27 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    It’s getting ridiculous. Every time Blake Griffin plays there is a spectacular dunk. Well, there are  a lot of dunks — Griffin leads the league in total dunks this season (ahead of traditional winner in this category Amar’e Stoudemire). But the Clippers are using it well because all you have to do is throw a…

  15. Watch Blake Griffin almost hit his head on the rim

    Dec 23, 2010, 8:26 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    From our ongoing “Did you see what Blake Griffin did last night?” series…. I’m starting to think he sat out last season so that doctors could attach a bionic leg to Griffin. Because no human leaps like this. Watch him almost hit his head on the rim. Also, I think it’s a nice contrast to…

  16. Clippers sign Ike Diogu as insurance policy

    Dec 22, 2010, 2:41 PM EDT

    2eaa0295d4_ike07312009

    Craig Smith was not playing a lot of minutes for the Clippers (11 a game) because he and Blake Griffin were not blending well on the court. And when you have Blake Griffin you play him a lot. But when Smith went down with a herniated disc in his back, sidelining him for a couple…

  17. Blake Griffin says he’ll do dunk contest if asked — and he’s never lost one

    Dec 22, 2010, 1:58 PM EDT

    BGriffin_dunk2

    Blake Griffin is a pretty humble, mild-mannered guy. Until you get between him and the rim. Just ask Timofey Mozgov. End up in the wrong spot and you end up on one of Blake’s fast-growing collection of poster shots. Griffin’s dunks are almost as big on YouTube as videos of kittens, so the next logical…

  18. Did you see what Blake Griffin did last night?

    Dec 21, 2010, 2:06 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    We are seriously considering just making this a daily feature on this blog. Because every night the Clippers’ Blake Griffin steps on the court some spectacular in-game dunk happens and we want you to see the video. But that is only three or four nights a week and this is a seven-day-a-week feature we’re considering.…

  19. Bulls lose to the Clippers — think they miss Joakim Noah now?

    Dec 20, 2010, 12:25 PM EDT

    Image (1) nba_noah_250.jpg for post 22

    For all of you out there insistent that the Bulls should put Joakim Noah in the offer package for Carmelo Anthony — did you watch your team Saturday? The Bulls lost at home to the Los Angeles Clippers. Yes, those Clippers, who picked up their seventh win of the season that night. Blake Griffin went…

  20. Dwight Howard says he has “retired for life” from dunk contest

    Dec 14, 2010, 8:59 AM EDT

    dhoward_627_080215

    In 2008 we were all buzzing about how Dwight Howard brought the dunk contest All-Star weekend back from the dead. The sticker dunk, the Superman dunk — he was flying high and he was creative. The next season he had a fun battle with Nate Robinson. Last season… not so much. No Dwight Howard, no…

  21. Chris Kaman out three weeks with sprained ankle. Welcome to the Clippers world.

    Dec 11, 2010, 9:01 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Clippers

    Chris Kaman — you know, that tall guy who is supposed to be playing next to Blake Griffin — will be out the next three weeks at least, the team announced. He has an “aggravated bone bruise and deltoid ligament sprain of his left ankle.” Which means his ankle really, really hurts right now. This…

  22. Quote of the day: Ron Artest wants to be in a Blake Griffin poster

    Dec 9, 2010, 9:20 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    “I’d buy it and tell him to sign it.” — Ron Artest, talking about the Clippers Blake Griffin and how he has posterized guys all over the league and Ron saying he’d love that to happen to him. “I hope he dunks on me. His highlights is stupid.” (Quotes via Kevin Ding of the Orange…

  23. Andre Miller calls league “soft” after suspension

    Dec 8, 2010, 10:22 PM EDT

    Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, Andre Miller

    Andre Miller did not play Tuesday night for the Portland Trail Blazers — the first time in 632 regular season games, or since the Matrix Reloaded. The reason is a blindside check on Blake Griffin. If he could have, he would have had his stick up on that one and slammed him into the boards.…

  24. Trick shots at home with Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan

    Dec 8, 2010, 5:08 PM EDT

    Griffin_Jordan

    Don’t go there with the “they should make more shots in the game” comments. Blake Griffin took time out from hanging in front of the television watching SportsCenter (“Hey, there I an again!”) to go shoot trick shots for your entertainment. You should thank them. Then you should watch the video.

  25. 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…
