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

    Dec 25, 2013, 9:31 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 23, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    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 —…

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

    Dec 23, 2013, 1:29 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 16, 2013, 11:49 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 3, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    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.…

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

    Dec 2, 2013, 12:02 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 1, 2013, 1:50 PM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 22, 2013, 1:17 AM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 13, 2013, 7:19 PM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 12, 2013, 8:45 AM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 11, 2013, 2:21 PM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 8, 2013, 8:46 AM EST

    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.…

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

    Nov 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    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).…

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

    Nov 5, 2013, 2:40 AM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 23, 2013, 4:03 PM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 20, 2013, 8:03 PM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 17, 2013, 8:39 PM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 10, 2013, 2:51 PM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 4, 2013, 3:59 PM EST

    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…

  21. Isaiah Thomas shows off handles at Seattle pro-am (VIDEO)

    Sep 6, 2013, 6:57 PM EST

    Isaiah Thomas

    This isn’t exactly new — the Jamal Crawford pro-am in Seattle was going on couple weeks back — but Kings point guard Isaiah Thomas is one of those guys with a game made for this kind of event. Ball is Life put together a highlight package of his handles and moves from the event and you…

  22. Jamal Crawford says there’s ‘no question’ Eric Bledsoe will be a star

    Sep 5, 2013, 10:54 PM EST

    Eric Bledsoe, Jerryd Bayless

    The Clippers loved what they got from Eric Bledsoe last season, an explosive 6’1″ guard who was dubbed “mini-LeBron” by none other than King James himself. Bledsoe is still on his rookie contract, however, and at some point soon he’s going to get an extension commensurate with what he brings to the table. L.A. has…

  23. Does Jamal Crawford have the game’s best handles? (VIDEO)

    Sep 3, 2013, 12:05 AM EST

    Jamal Crawford

    The ability to control the ball off the dribble in a variety of ways is a key component of being able to score from the guard position. This video mix of Jamal Crawford, compiled from his summer pro-am in Seattle, is proof that he’s among the best in the league at this very specific skill.…

  24. Doc Rivers embraces high expectations for Clippers

    Aug 23, 2013, 10:44 AM EST

    Doc Rivers, Matt Barnes, Darren Collison, Jared Dudley, Ryan Hollins, Chris Paul, ,J.J. Redick

    On paper, the Los Angeles Clippers should be contenders. In reality, they got eliminated from the playoffs in the first round — they got up 2-0 on Memphis then were swept out of the playoffs. The Clippers started that series with a good plan, the Grizzlies adjusted and Los Angeles had no counters. They went…

  25. Jeff Green can still throw down dunks (VIDEO)

    Aug 20, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Last season it was just good to to see Jeff Green back out on the court. This season he is going to get asked to do a lot more for a Boston team in transition, we’ll see how that goes. Green was in Seattle for the Jamal Crawford pro-am and what did we learn? He…
