  1. Chris Paul goes off the backboard to DeAndre Jordan for slam (VIDEO)

    DeAndre Jordan

    This is what the Clippers do, they put on a show. Midway through the first quarter Saturday night Chris Paul made the steal and it was a two-on-none fast break, so Paul went off the backboard to DeAndre Jordan for the slam. Not the best off the backboard I’ve ever seen, but not bad. The…

  2. Glen Davis says there’s a ‘supernatural belief’ surrounding the Clippers

    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.

  4. Tommy Lasorda gives Clippers impromptu pep talk, Chris Paul walks him back to seat

    Mar 6, 2014, 12:55 PM EST

    Los Angeles Dodgers Photo Day

    Tommy Lasorda is a motivator. The legendary Dodger skipper was never a managerial genius with moves that wowed baseball’s intellegentia, but his players would run through a wall for him. He understood enough that is a limping Kirk Gibson wants to pinch-hit in the World Series you send him out there, but mostly he just…

  5. Suns’ Leandro Barbosa fractures hand in loss to Clippers

    Mar 5, 2014, 10:14 AM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    With Eric Bledsoe out back in January the Suns turned to Leandro Barbosa to provide a little offensive spark to the second unit. He’s done that somewhat when he’s been healthy, but a series of nagging injuries have slowed him. Now he could be out for a while — Barbosa suffered a fractured left hand…

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

    Feb 27, 2014, 3:32 AM EST

    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…

  7. PBT Extra: Does Evan Turner solidify Pacers atop East? Rockets tops out West?

    Feb 26, 2014, 4:41 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Indiana Pacers

    After a few weeks mid-season hiatus — which is what Chris Paul and LeBron James really want for the All-Star break — PBT Extra is back with the incomparable Kay Adams at the helm. Today she and I start off talking about what Evan Turner can mean to the Pacers — as long as he…

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks - Game Two

    A report earlier on Wednesday had the Knicks engaged in trade talks with the Clippers that would send Iman Shumpert and Raymond Felton to Los Angeles in exchange for Darren Collison and Reggie Bullock. Despite getting out from under Felton’s contract, which is essentially for two more seasons beyond this one considering his player option…

    Iman Shumpert

    The Knicks may finally have found a team willing to take on Iman Shumpert and given them back a new point guard, something they have desperately been seeking. New York is talking to the Los Angeles Clippers about a swap that would bring Shumpert to the Clippers and send Darren Collison back to New York,…

    Forbes released its top 10 list of off-the-court NBA earners this week, and not surprisingly, a couple of the game’s biggest stars lead the pack.

  12. Clippers’ J.J. Redick out indefinitely with bulging disc in back, other injuries

    Feb 18, 2014, 9:08 PM EST

    J.J. Redick

    UPDATE: 9:08 pm: The Clippers have made it official, saying J.J. Redick is out “indefinitely with a bulging disc in his lower back.” While he certainly has a variety of injuries, it is the back that is the most serious. They still expect to have him back for the playoffs. 7:45 pm: This is pretty…

    2014 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Four days in New Orleans left me about 20 pounds heavier (at least it feels that way, time to mix in a salad) and with a notebook full of thoughts and tidbits that didn’t find their way into other posts. So, here is a notebook dump. • Paul George said after the All-Star Game Frank…

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

    Feb 17, 2014, 12:18 AM EST

    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…

  16. James Harden to start All-Star Game for Kobe Bryant

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    Kobe Bryant was already replaced on the Western Conference All-Star roster with Anthony Davis, but that was only half the process. Kobe must also be replaced in the starting lineup. Looks like that’s settled, too. Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports: Injured Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will be replaced as a Western Conference All-Star…

    NBA Commissioner David Stern Announces Retirement

    The All-Star weekend is a busy one — and not just for Damian Lillard (who will be in five events during the weekend). For the players selected to the team it is a whirlwind of media events, community events, practices and, oh yea, a basketball game. Plus a few parties. Then a few more parties.…

  18. The Extra Pass: Predictions for All-Star Weekend

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    All-Star weekend is upon us. While the rest of the PBT crew gets to eat beignets and earn beads for showing a little skin (that’s how that works, right?), some of us will be stuck at home watching the celebrity game and reevaluating our life choices. Not that I’m bitter or anything. Not at all.…

  19. Jim Boeheim tells Carmelo Anthony to leave Knicks (basically)

    Feb 13, 2014, 10:00 AM EST

    Syracuse v Wake Forest

    Jim Boeheim, who coached Carmelo Anthony at Syracuse, discussed Melo’s pending free agency with Jim Rome (hat tip: Matt Moore of Eye on Basketball). Boeheim: What I’d tell him is what I would tell any NBA great player. If you’re a great player in the NBA, for you to be recognized as a great player,…

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

    Feb 13, 2014, 3:21 AM EST

    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…

  21. There is zero chance the Knicks trade Carmelo Anthony, can we stop talking about it?

    Feb 11, 2014, 1:44 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New York Knicks

    I’ve been surprised how often this has come up lately. During radio talk show interviews, in emails, I even had a friend ask me: Are the Knicks trading Carmelo Anthony? No. Not even close. I’m not sure how this delusion even became a talking point. Yes, the Knicks do know Anthony can opt out of…

  22. The Extra Pass: The Minnesota Timberwolves are on the clock

    Feb 11, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Clippers

    10 days before the trade deadline. 30 games left in the season. One contract year remaining. To say this is one of the most important time frames in the history of the Minnesota Timberwolves franchise isn’t overly dramatic or hyperbolic. It’s reality. Minnesota has never won a championship. 25 years, no rings, and an overall…

  23. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder stay on top, Bucks stay on bottom

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:24 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now.   1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

  24. Blake Griffin with back-to-back windmill alley-oop throwdowns (VIDEO)

    Feb 10, 2014, 8:45 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Philadelphia “defense” provided a blank canvas on which the Los Angeles Clippers could create whatever art they wanted Sunday night (Los Angeles led 100-51 after three quarters). And when you let the Clippers do whatever they want, you get alley-oops. Chris Paul was back to throw them and Blake Griffin was finishing them with…

  25. Sunday night NBA grades: It’s Kevin Durant’s world we just live in it

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:08 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Jeopardy to see what all the Arthur Chu fuss is about…. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. If you are going to win the MVP award you need a couple monster games on national television. Durant delivered that on Sunday — 41 points, 10…
