Jamal Crawford

  1. Blake Griffin with the monster alley-oop finish against Knicks (VIDEO)

    Jan 17, 2014, 9:51 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Blake Griffin seemingly converts at least one of these per game, but there were a couple of things we liked about this particular alley-oop he completed against the Knicks. The pass from Jamal Crawford was simply perfect, and the fact that Griffin was further away than usual and had to extend to throw it down…

  2. Mark Cuban wants one last fine from David Stern

    Jan 16, 2014, 12:45 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban,  Brian Forte

    In two weeks, David Stern will step down as commissioner of the NBA after 30 years on the job, handing the reins over to Adam Silver. Before Stern goes, Dallas Mavericks owner wants one last fine from David Stern. For old time’s sake. That’s what Cuban has said, as reported by ESPNDallas.com. Stern isn’t so…

  3. Clippers end wild game on 11-0 run to come back, beat Mavericks

    Jan 16, 2014, 2:45 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Clippers

    LOS ANGELES — If the ball hadn’t been orange with David Stern’s signature on it rather than red, white and blue I would have sworn this was an old ABA game. It was fast paced with all kinds of offense, questionable defense, a ton of threes, some chippy play, and huge runs — the Los…

  4. The Extra Pass: The Raptors press pause, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers

    When Masai Ujiri jumped from the Denver Nuggets to the Toronto Raptors to take over as general manager, the objective was clear. Ujiri was to do what he does best: tear it down, and try to salvage as much value as possible from the mistakes made by the previous regime. Ujiri hasn’t failed to live…

  5. Christmas night NBA grades: Durant is on the nice list, the Nets get a lump of coal

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:26 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v New York Knicks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to get that “Christmas Jammies” song out of your head….  Brooklyn Nets not named Deron Williams. If you want to blame everyone in a Brooklyn uniform (ugly, Christmas Day sleeved uniform) for that disaster of a loss, I can’t blame you. They were…

  6. For your Christmas viewing: Top 10 crossover moves of 2013

    Dec 25, 2013, 9:31 AM EDT

    Kyrie Irving

    We figured it was time to test out the video capabilities of the new iPad Santa just brought you this morning, so here you go. Before you jump on me in the comments: 1) I know that several of these are not crossover moves. 2) I didn’t put together this compilation, the fine folks at…

  7. The Extra Pass: Three things you think about Danny Granger that are wrong

    Dec 23, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets  v Indiana Pacers

    In his second game back Sunday, Danny Granger looked good. After battling knee issues that kept him out almost all of last season and most of this one, Granger returned the Pacers lineup this weekend. Sunday against the Celtics he looked like the guy the Pacers are hoping he will be off the bench —…

  8. Sunday night NBA grades: Kevin Love makes his All-Star statement against Griffin

    Dec 23, 2013, 1:29 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Clippers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reading about how Charles Dickens’ classic “Christmas Carroll” almost didn’t get published… Kevin Love, Minnesota Timberwolves. Kevin Love is not going to own up to it, but this came off as a “are all of you really voting for Blake Griffin as an All-Star…

  9. Clippers could get J.J. Redick back sooner than expected

    Dec 16, 2013, 11:49 AM EDT

    J.J. Redick

    The Clippers just ended a rough seven-game road trip with a 4-3 record, and have struggled overall since J.J. Redick went down with a pair of injuries back on Nov. 29. The initial timetable for his return was 6-8 weeks, but it appears he may be on the low end of the scale in terms…

  10. The Extra Pass: Our awards at the quarter pole, plus Monday recaps

    Dec 3, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    Believe it or not, we’re nearly at the quarter mark of the NBA season already. That means it’s time to start believing a little more in what we’ve seen so far, and maybe even time to dish out a few awards. Remember, these aren’t predictions for what will happen at the end of the season.…

  11. Jamal Crawford with the ankle-breaking move on Lance Stephenson (VIDEO)

    Dec 2, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    Jamal Crawford is known for having some of the game’s sickest handles, and even when he executes one of his signature moves less than perfectly, it can have an embarrassing effect on the defender in front of him. Crawford made Lance Stephenson look silly early in the fourth quarter of the Pacers’ win over the…

  12. Clippers Redick out 6-8 weeks with fractured hand, torn ligament in elbow

    Dec 1, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    J.J. Redick

    J.J. Redick has been a key part of the Clippers having the third best offense in the NBA this season — he gives them an efficient 15.8 points a game in kind of a “Ray Allen in Boston” role coming off screens and spotting up at the arc as a kick-out option. But the Clippers…

  13. Thunder race out to early lead, get comfortable win over Clippers

    Nov 22, 2013, 1:17 AM EDT

    Reggie Jackson Thunder

    If you watched Thursday night’s Thunder win over the Clippers, and compared it to the first time these two teams met — at least up to the point in that first game when Serge Ibaka was ejected — you could come away saying that the Thunder are just flat out better than the Clippers. At…

  14. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  15. Wednesday And-1 Links: Did Nate Wolters have a turnover last night?

    Nov 13, 2013, 7:19 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than we love reheated pizza for breakfast… Did Nate Wolters Have A Turnover…

  16. Jamal Crawford with half court buzzer-beater that matters (VIDEO)

    Nov 12, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford, Chris Paul

    Usually we bring you the video of these half-court buzzer beaters just because they are fun shots to watch, they rarely have a big impact on the game itself. But this one from the Clippers’ Jamal Crawford at the end of the third quarter did. Crawford’s shot took a 2 point lead and jacked it…

  17. PBT NBA Power Rankings: It’s the Pacers, Spurs then everyone else

    Nov 11, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    David Stern’s nightmare Finals matchup is on top of the second PBT NBA Power rankings — Indiana and San Antonio. Lots of shifting still going on in the rankings as teams shake themselves out just a couple weeks into the season, but a few patterns are emerging. 1. Pacers (7-0, Last Week No. 1). Yes…

  18. Vintage Dwyane Wade drops 29 on Clippers (VIDEO)

    Nov 8, 2013, 8:46 AM EDT

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-GAME 6

    When LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are all playing well Miami remains very, very difficult to beat. That’s what the Clippers ran into Thursday night — specifically vintage Wade. He had 29 points and 7 assists, carving up J.J. Redick (and Jamal Crawford) with both drives to the baskets and pull up jumpers.…

  19. The Extra Pass: Clippers offensive fireworks cover up struggling defense, plus Monday recaps

    Nov 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    LOS ANGELES — The Clippers know how to put on a show — they dropped a highflying 137 points on the Rockets and blew the up-and-coming team out of the water. Through four games the Clippers are averaging 116.7 points per 100s possessions, that is almost 7 points better than the second place team (Houston).…

  20. Red-hot Clippers put on a show at Rockets expense, win big

    Nov 5, 2013, 2:40 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford, Chris Paul

    LOS ANGELES — This happens a few games a season. It was a perfect storm of the already explosive Clippers offense really finding its flow in an up-tempo game, a Rockets defense that was just floundering, some foul trouble to the Rockets defensive anchor, and to top it all off Chris Paul had the Midas…

  21. J.J. Redick returns to Clippers practice, likely to play Friday

    Oct 23, 2013, 4:03 PM EDT

    J.J. Redick

    The Los Angeles Clippers have finally admitted there was more than just a bruised thigh that was keeping J.J. Redick sidelined the last three weeks — there was a little bit of a tear. But that is apparently a thing of the past. Redick is back on the Clippers practice court Tuesday and told Arash…

  22. Nick Young calls Clippers covering up Lakers championship banners at Staples Center ‘disrespectful’

    Oct 20, 2013, 8:03 PM EDT

    Lakers.com

    We knew this was coming. After the Clippers redecorated Staples Center by putting up large images of their own players over the space on the wall where all of the Lakers’ championship banners and retired jerseys reside, comments from the Lakers were to be expected. But most, wisely, couldn’t care less about how the Clippers…

  23. Chris Paul, J.J. Redick bury hatchet on long-running feud

    Oct 17, 2013, 8:39 PM EDT

    Chris Paul, J.J. Redick

    Chris Paul and J.J. Redick didn’t get along. It started down on Tobacco Road, where Redick started at Duke and Paul at Wake Forest, but it was more than just that. This was Redick punched Paul when they met at the Jordan camp kind of feud. (Truth be told, I had a little more respect…

  24. Clippers’ J.J. Redick out about 10 days with a bruised thigh

    Oct 10, 2013, 2:51 PM EDT

    J.J. Redick

    When the pulled muscles, sprained ankles and other assorted injuries that are just part of the NBA grind hit this season, few teams will be as deep and prepared as the Clippers. They are as deep a team as there is in the league (at least in the backcourt, up front… not so much). For…

  25. Jamal Crawford won’t use crossover as often this season

    Oct 4, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    Jamal Crawford’s slick crossover has made him one of the NBA’s best sixth men and a fan favorite. Though it’s probably not time to bid Crawford’s handles adieu, you might not see them as often this season. Doc Rivers’ preferred offense includes more passing and less isolation, and that means a guard like Crawford will…
