  1. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder on top, Nuggets climbing ranks

    Jan 14, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Chris Duhon, Earl Clark

    Each of the top five teams in last week’s ranking suffered losses, some pretty ugly losses. So, who bounced back and looked best after that? Oklahoma City, so they maintain the top spot. 1. Thunder (28-8, Last week ranked No. 1). Kevin Durant is a better playmaker than last year. Russell Westbrook a better floor…

  2. Magic snap Clippers’ 13-game home winning streak

    Jan 12, 2013, 8:26 PM EDT

    Grant Hill, Josh McRoberts

    The Orlando Magic are just 13-23 on the season, but they have some surprising signature wins that give the fan base hope as the team rebuilds without a superstar on the roster, and with a first-year head coach running the show. Saturday afternoon’s come-from-behind 104-101 win over a Clippers team that held a share of…

  3. Grant Hill to make season debut for Clippers Saturday vs. Magic

    Jan 12, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Grant Hill Clippers

    If you were looking for a reason to tune in for an afternoon contest between the Clippers and the Magic, Grant Hill making his season debut for Los Angeles is as good a reason as any. Hill was said to be a game time decision after practice on Friday, but Vinnie Del Negro told reporters…

  4. The Extra Pass: The All-Value Team

    Jan 11, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Extra Pass is a new daily column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme. Today, we’ll put together a squad featuring some of the league’s most valuable contracts.  Signing players to any substantial contract during the offseason free agency period is like tap dancing through a…

  5. Grant Hill practicing with Clippers, could play Saturday

    Jan 8, 2013, 1:33 PM EDT

    Grant Hill Clippers

    Great news Vinny Del Negro, you’ve got another perimeter player you need to find minutes for… Grant Hill and his 40-year-old knees are back practicing with the team, reports Arash Markazi of ESPNLosAngeles.com. He could return to the lineup Saturday when the Clippers host the Magic. “We’ll see how he does tomorrow in practice and…

  6. Grant Hill hopes to be playing for Clippers later this month

    Jan 2, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

    Grant Hill Clippers

    A lot of NBA coaches wish they had Vinny Del Negro’s problem — too many talented players to give minutes to. Because the Clippers are winning there is little grumbling, but it’s a challenge Del Negro and others have admitted to. Soon there will be another wing player demanding minutes on the active roster. Grant…

  7. Suns coach Gentry gets vote of confidence; report has Beasley as issue

    Dec 11, 2012, 10:25 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    When the Phoenix Suns traded Steve Nash, let Grant Hill go and brought in Michael Beasley to be the designated scorer, you knew things were not going to go all that well in the Valley of the Sun this year. But Suns fans weren’t ready for a 7-15 record with seven straight losses, and everyone…

  8. Clippers 92, Spurs 87: Making a list, checking it twice

    Nov 20, 2012, 1:52 AM EDT

    Matt Barnes, Manu Ginobili

    Doubting the legitimacy of the Los Angeles Clippers is not a new or particularly uncommon practice. Despite laying waste to the Grizzlies, Spurs, Lakers and Heat in convincing fashion already, there was a sense that this would be the first true test for the Clippers. They’d be out on the road, against the team that…

  9. Billups could rejoin Clippers by Thanksgiving. Grant Hill… not so much.

    Nov 6, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups Clippers

    Here is where things stand Clippers fans — Chauncey Billups, at age 36 and recovering from a major Achilles tendon injury, will be back with your team before Grant Hill. Billups could be back by the time you’re taking a nap after eating too much turkey and stuffing, with a side of sweet potatoes. That’s…

  10. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs and Knicks movin’ on up

    Nov 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EDT

    Fans celebrate as Knicks' Anthony sinks a three-point shot against Heat during NBA basketball game in New York

    The first few power rankings of the year show the most volatility — we don’t have established patterns for teams and so if someone gets hot or cold for a few games there is no context yet to put that in. It’s Small Sample Size Theatre. The Magic are 2-0 but I don’t think they…

  11. Grant Hill to get another knee exam, miss season opener

    Oct 25, 2012, 9:11 AM EDT

    Grant Hill Clippers

    We told you a couple days ago that it looked like Grant Hill would be out for the season opener, and that because he was not able to get the Phoenix Suns training staff to come to Los Angeles with him Clippers fans should be a little nervous. Hill owned up to the fact he…

  12. Grant Hill to miss “at least a couple of weeks”

    Oct 23, 2012, 10:36 PM EDT

    Grant Hill Clippers

    Remember that scene from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade when the bad guy “chooses poorly” and ages rapidly until he deteriorates into nothingness? Well, this kind of feels like that. Grant Hill managed to be amazingly healthy during the last five seasons with the Phoenix Suns, who just so happen to employ what many…

  13. The Clippers brought in veterans for depth, who are now all banged up

    Oct 20, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom, Caron Butler

    The Clippers went for the sure thing this offseason. They want to compete now, so instead of developing young talent or going for upside, they brought in veterans to round out their roster. They wound up with a pretty deep team with a lot of experience. Who are currently all hurt in minor ways. From…

  14. NBA season preview: Phoenix Suns

    Oct 17, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Last Season: We could talk about the slow start, the impressive run in the season’s second half, or the eventual finish two games outside of the playoff picture. But all anyone in Phoenix will ultimately remember about the 2011-12 campaign is that it was the last time they would witness the on-court brilliance of Steve…

  15. NBA season preview: L.A. Clippers

    Oct 16, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    Last Season: Perhaps it was the start of a cultural change in Clipperland, or maybe it was simply the beginning of a very short-term spike of relative success. Either way, your 2011-12 Clippers were competitive, fun to watch, and a team that made its way into the playoffs — three qualities that have been completely…

  16. Chris Paul returns… just don’t expect to see him vs. Heat

    Oct 9, 2012, 3:03 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul was back on the court with his Clippers teammates. Held back by doctors after off-season thumb surgery, he has been cleared for full-contact practices and is out there getting run. That’s the good news. It doesn’t mean we are going to get to see him against the Miami Heat as the two teams…

  17. LeBron going to spend more time in post, play some point forward

    Oct 1, 2012, 4:19 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James takes part in a team practice for the NBA basketball finals in Oklahoma City

    The Miami Heat have found their identity — they are going to play small. They are gong to have Chris Bosh spend lot of time at the five spot (he says he is ready for it) then have LeBron at the power forward spot. He says he’s ready for all of it. He says he…

  18. Clyde Drexler thinks the Suns will make playoffs. This year.

    Sep 26, 2012, 1:28 AM EDT

    clyde drexler

    Steve Nash is gone. Grant Hill is gone. Michael Beasley is going to be picking up a lot of the scoring slack. Channing Frye is now likely out for the season. It’s going to be a rough season for the rebuilding Suns… unless you ask Clyde Drexler. Drexler is the one Suns true believer. He…

  19. Matt Barnes talks being a Clipper, finding minutes

    Sep 22, 2012, 12:59 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs

    For a guy who has spent the past few seasons being a solid role player on quality teams — Orlando first then the Los Angeles Lakers — it took a while this summer for Matt Barnes to catch on with a team. And Barnes understands why. “First and foremost, me being injured last year during…

  20. Chris Paul a few weeks away from workouts due to thumb

    Sep 21, 2012, 4:44 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Chris Paul quietly played through pain to get a gold medal in London — his thumb injury suffered one of the first days in Las Vegas was bad enough to require surgery afterward, but he was not going to bow out. He got his surgery, and he should be ready to go when the season…

  21. Grant Hill says what Nash did like going from Duke to North Carolina

    Sep 19, 2012, 11:13 AM EDT

    steve nash-grant hill

    Grant Hill left Phoenix for Los Angeles, but nobody in the Valley of the Sun really holds that against him because he’s going to the Clippers and, while they certainly will be good, nobody really hates them yet. Everyone kind of shrugs at that move west. Steve Nash going from the Suns to the hated…

  22. Winderman: The NBA is too nice. We need some real rivalries.

    Sep 19, 2012, 10:33 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, LeBron James

    Dwight Howard somehow now is friends with Stan Van Gundy and hopes to eventually be remembered fondly in Orlando. LeBron James returned to Cleveland last season saying he would not rule out perhaps one day again playing for the Cavaliers. Ray Allen took out a full-page ad in Boston to remind Celtics fans how much…

  23. In case you are curious how much pull CP3 has with Clippers, check out what Barnes said.

    Sep 15, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Four

    Matt Barnes is a member of the Los Angeles Clippers. We told you about that yesterday. We’ve also told you that Chris Paul was playing GM and doing the recruiting — the Clippers want to keep Paul happy heading into his free agency and the buzz around the league is he and CAA have been…

  24. It’s official: Matt Barnes signs with Los Angeles Clippers

    Sep 14, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs

    We told you this was coming and now it is official — Matt Barnes has signed to play with the Los Angeles Clippers this season, the team announced Friday. Getting an athletic player who can defend on the wing for the league minimum is a good signing for the Clippers. While the official terms of…

  25. Report: Matt Barnes agrees to sign with L.A. Clippers

    Sep 13, 2012, 11:03 AM EDT

    Matt Barnes

    We told you yesterday that Matt Barnes looked done with the Lakers but was close to a deal to stay in Los Angeles with the Clippers. Now comes this tweet from Sam Amick at Sports Illustrated: Source says Matt Barnes has informed the Clippers he will sign with them. Nothing is ever final until ink…
