    Glen Davis has only been a member of the Clippers for four games, but he’s already sensing something special about his new team. Davis was bought out by the Magic and signed with Los Angeles less than two weeks ago, but played for Doc Rivers in Boston during his first four NBA seasons. He was…

    Pau Gasol

    The Clippers beat the Lakers, 142-94, Thursday night – the biggest loss in Lakers history.

  3. Blake Griffin with a monster alley-oop throw down, even for him (VIDEO)

    Mar 7, 2014, 8:46 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    That feels pretty much how the last three quarters of the Clippers/Lakers game went Thursday night. The Clippers did whatever they wanted all night on the Lakers’ “defense” and that led to a few spectacular plays. The best of them was this ridiculous alley-oop dunk by Blake Griffin. Griffin finished with 20 points in the…

  5. Report: Carmelo Anthony’s camp doesn’t want to wait for 2015 Knicks rebuild

    Mar 5, 2014, 1:42 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    Every player says it. Carmelo Anthony is saying it. It’s is some variant of “I’m not about the money, I’m about winning.” Then the money goes on the table and it’s all about the money. That’s the choice facing Carmelo Anthony this summer — a big payday from the Knicks and trust them to rebuild…

  6. DeMar DeRozan wants to know where he’d get picked in 2009 re-draft

    Mar 3, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Warriors Raptors Basketball

    Imagining how previous NBA drafts would play out in hindsight is always fun, an instant debate starter for basketball fans. I’m sure we’ve all wasted a countless hours analyzing questions like: Carmelo Anthony or Chris Bosh No. 3 behind LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in 2004? Do half the top-eight picks in 2013 remain in…

  7. Wednesday night NBA grades: How about that Kyrie Irving?

    Feb 27, 2014, 4:05 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while you and your friends debated canned vs. bottled beer…. Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers. He wasn’t in attack mode, he was in seek-and-destroy mode. With Dion Waiters and basically everyone who can shoot outside 15 feet injured he knows he has to be the man…

  8. Clipper defense, Darren Collison lead L.A. to win over Houston

    Feb 27, 2014, 3:32 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    For both the Clippers and the Rockets, the conventional wisdom is the same: If they can defend well and consistently in the playoffs they move into contender status. Wednesday night it was the Clippers that defended when it mattered — the Rockets shot just 33 percent in the fourth quarter. Combine that with some impressive…

  10. Report: Glen Davis committing to Clippers, Nets to then sign Jason Collins

    Feb 23, 2014, 12:29 PM EDT

    Jason Collins

    Glen Davis has chosen his old coach over his old teammate. Well, that’s not the whole story. It appears Davis will choose the Los Angeles Clippers as his next destination, a spot where he moves to a team on the cusp of contending (how close is up for debate) where they are in desperate need…

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

    Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan have played 1,638 minutes together this season — 61.7 percent of the Clippers’ total minutes this season. The next big man on the minutes list in Ryan Hollins and he has played 406 minutes. Total. Doc Rivers is riding the Griffin/Jordan combo hard because he has no choice — Hollins,…

    Feb 17, 2014, 12:32 PM EDT

    2014 NBA All-Star Game

    NEW ORLEANS – Blake Griffin has shown a much rounder game this season — his midrange game is solid, he has a variety of post moves and counters, his handles have stepped up the past few years. Yet it’s the dunks we want to see, and Griffin understands that and put on a high-flying show…

    NEW ORLEANS — Right now it’s a serious debate about who is the best power forward in the game — LaMarcus Aldridge and Kevin Love lead most lists, Blake Griffin is trying to muscle in on the list, but guys like Tim Duncan and Dirk Nowitzki still have a say in the matter. If five…

    Feb 17, 2014, 12:40 AM EDT

    NBA-All-Star-Game-2014-starters

    First, the obvious: The NBA All-Star Game is different from a normal basketball game. Apathy often reigns supreme, especially on defense, in this yearly exhibition, and there’s a premium on flashy play instead of solid, efficient basketball. For some players, it’s a dream format, while it’s less than ideal for others. In short, how a…

  19. Kyrie Irving, Carmelo Anthony shoot East to win in highest scoring NBA All-Star Game ever

    Feb 17, 2014, 12:18 AM EDT

    2014 NBA All-Star Game

    NEW ORLEANS — The NBA All-Star Game is never exactly a defensive showcase, it’s an exhibition. But this year’s version was an analytic lover’s dream: Three pointers and dunks. A lot of them. In the highest-scoring NBA All-Star Game ever, the East beat the West 163-155. This was the kind of showcase of athleticism the…

  20. John Wall on LeBron: “I don’t think he is a big dunk contest person”

    Feb 15, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Washington Wizards

    John Wall is stepping up his game. He admitted Friday when speaking to the media before the All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest that in games he holds back — his fear of missing and embarrassing himself makes him go the safe route rather than to show off. Saturday night he’s in the dunk contest and he…

  21. Blake Griffin leaves door open for Slam Dunk Contest return

    Feb 13, 2014, 7:15 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Ten of the 13 Slam Dunk Contest champions since Vince Carter have defended their title the following year.

    Feb 13, 2014, 11:29 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics  v Los Angeles Clippers

    In the Lamarcus Aldridge vs. Blake Griffin, give the latest round to Griffin. On points. A lot of points.

Griffin had the kind of big numbers, highlight-filled game that had fans…

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to buy jeans for an Olympic skier… DeMar DeRozan, Toronto Raptors. He certainly looked like an All-Star before hopping on a plane to New Orleans — 31 points on 11-of-19 shooting, five rebounds, three assists. Granted, he was being covered by Kyle Korver…

  24. Clippers hold off Trail Blazers for win… can these two meet in playoffs, please?

    Feb 13, 2014, 3:21 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    If the playoffs started today, the Los Angeles Clippers and Portland Trail Blazers would meet in the first round… please let that happened. Defense? Who needs it? We want Blake Griffin vs. LaMarcus Aldridge. We want dunks and threes. This matchup would just be entertaining. When these two teams first met the day after Christmas…

  25. John Wall: People see me as a No. 1 pick who hasn’t done anything

    Feb 11, 2014, 4:22 PM EDT

    John Wall, LeBron James

    Professional athletes love to talk about all the people who don’t believe in them, even if everyone believes in them. Some get creative. Throughout his NBA career, Michael Jordan referenced a high school coach cutting him. That was because nobody really doubted Jordan during his time at North Carolina and with the Chicago Bulls. But…
