  1. PBT’s NBA Mid-Season Awards: All hail Kevin Durant

    Jan 24, 2013, 12:31 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    It’s the halfway point of the NBA season. To me having a serious discussion about end of season awards before this point is like discussing the 2016 presidential election today — it’s all speculation and wishful thinking. Now we have enough games to have a body of evidence and a discussion. So here are my…

  2. Kevin Durant delivers daggers as the Thunder roll over the Clippers

    Jan 23, 2013, 2:32 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Clippers

    In a big road test against the Los Angeles Clippers for Western Conference supremacy, Kevin Durant was unproductive and almost non-existent to start the game. Those aren’t words you typically use to describe Durant at any point, but it was inexplicably true. The league’s leading scorer was quiet throughout the first quarter, scoring only one…

  3. Clippers send promotional material to coaches to try to get Jamal Crawford voted in as an All-Star

    Jan 19, 2013, 9:01 PM EST

    Jamal Crawford, Chris Bosh

    The All-Star reserves will be announced this Thursday, and with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin both already in as members of the Western Conference starting lineup, there isn’t a great possibility that another player from the Clippers will make it as the team’s third representative. But that isn’t stopping the Clippers organization from trying. With…

  4. Ugly gets uglier as the Clippers defeat the injury-riddled Timberwovles

    Jan 18, 2013, 12:26 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves guard Rubio is defended by L.A. Clippers' Crawford and Griffin during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Minneapolis

    It was easy to be excited for this one going in. Ricky Rubio is always must see TV, and Eric Bledsoe is capable of providing some serious fireworks. Pit the two against each other, throw in a few Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan jams, and you’ve got yourself a game, right? Well, not exactly. Bledsoe…

  5. The Extra Pass: How the Clippers Grew Up

    Jan 17, 2013, 9:58 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul puts his arm around teammate Griffin during NBA basketball game against the Memphis Grizzlies in Los Angeles

    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 look at the maturation of the Los Angeles Clippers. For years and years, the Los Angeles Clippers were a failure on a systemic level. The on-court talent was faced with…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Night of the offensive outbursts

    Jan 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while thinking about what a jump to hyperspace in the Millennium Falcon would really be like… Lakers 104, Bucks 88: Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard each had 31 points, but the real key for Los Angles was their defense — Kobe was on…

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

    Jan 12, 2013, 8:26 PM EST

    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…

  8. The Extra Pass: The All-Value Team

    Jan 11, 2013, 10:00 AM EST

    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…

  9. J.R. Smith believes an All-Star spot is within reach

    Jan 5, 2013, 5:00 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Phoenix Suns

    J.R. Smith has been lauded for his play in New York this season, coming off the bench to provide a solid scoring punch at 16.6 points per game, while giving the team an active defensive presence on the perimeter. Smith’s name, along with that of the Clippers’ Jamal Crawford, has been widely mentioned when discussing…

  10. Lakers vs. Clippers: Not a battle for soul of L.A., but a real battle

    Jan 4, 2013, 6:41 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers' Bryant brushes past Los Angeles Clippers' Paul during their NBA preseason game in Los Angeles

    The soul of Los Angeles is not at stake on Friday night when the Clippers “host” the Lakers at Staples Center. First off, Los Angeles sold its soul for year-around 70 degree weather  long ago. Second, Los Angeles is a Lakers town. Trust me, I live there, and while Clippers fans are no longer afraid to…

  11. Report: Despite plenty of interest, Clippers not likely to trade Bledsoe at deadline

    Jan 4, 2013, 5:49 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Los Angeles Clippers

    Eric Bledsoe is in a funk on the court. And it’s hard to blame him — the Clippers reserve guard would start for half the teams in the league (at least) but he is buried behind Chris Paul among the starters then off the bench Jamal Crawford is the primary scorer and ball handler. Bledsoe…

  12. No team has a drop off like Portland when Lillard, Aldridge sit

    Jan 3, 2013, 2:40 PM EST

    Damian Lillard, Pablo Prigioni

    The first thing you should know about the +/- stat is that is says as much about the person who replaces a player as it does the player himself. Which makes sense when you look at a fantastic bit of work by NBA.com’s John Schuhmann, a list of the NBA’s biggest difference makers — a…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nets, Warriors get statement wins

    Jan 3, 2013, 8:01 AM EST

    Brooklyn Nets' Williams drives against Oklahoma City Thunder's Westbrook during their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while figuring out what’s in and what’s out for 2013… Nets 110, Thunder 93: Well, P.J. Carlesimo has his signature win and for a night the Nets looked like the team from the first weeks of the season. Oh, they’re…

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lots of ‘Melo, not much else for Knicks

    Jan 2, 2013, 8:03 AM EST

    New York Knicks Stoudemire reacts after stuffing ball to score against Portland Trail Blazers in NBA basketball game in New York

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while breaking your New Year’s resolutions already…. Nuggets 92, Clippers 78: The Clippers win streak dies at 17on a night they were just ice-cold from the floor — 38.5 percent as a team, with leading scorer Jamal Crawford shooting 2-of-11.…

  15. Ice-cold Clippers win streak ends at 17 in Denver

    Jan 2, 2013, 12:47 AM EST

    Blake Griffin

    The Clippers were not going to win the next 50 games, there was going to be a day when the shots would just clang off the rim. There was going to be a night when nothing went right. That night was Jan. 1 in Denver. The Clippers had shot 48.3% last 15 games, and 41.9…

  16. NBA’s best crossovers of 2012 (video)

    Jan 1, 2013, 6:30 PM EST

    Chris Paul

    I like a good dunk as much as the next guy, but if you give me my highlight loop of choice it would be crossovers. These are just so much fun. The fine folks at NBA.com have been putting together these year-end compilations, which have been fun. Well, this one wasn’t a lot of fun…

  17. Want to know if the Clippers are for real? Ask the Celtics (who lost to them by 29)

    Dec 28, 2012, 3:11 AM EST

    Blake Griffin, Jared Sullinger

    I’ve done some sports talk radio spots the last few days around the nation and this still seems to be the question on a lot of sports fans lips: Are the Clippers really that good? Like title contender good? Why don’t you go ask Doc Rivers or the Celtics? Or Rajon Rondo? Or Paul Pierce?…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Rockets, Celtics, Clippers get Christmas blowouts

    Dec 26, 2012, 8:35 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Clippers

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while running to the store to buy more double-AA batteries for those Christmas toys…. Celtics 93, Nets 76: The Nets are not a good defensive team, rather they are prone to lapses, like the second quarter when Boston put up 34…

  19. Jamal Crawford Calls His Own Shot, Delivers the Shake and Bake Crossover (VIDEO)

    Dec 26, 2012, 2:16 AM EST

    Jamal Crawford

    Following NBA players on Twitter is kind of an adventure. JaVale McGee retweets all his own tweets, Iman Shumpert talks almost solely in the third person…you get the idea. While some guys are hit and miss on that social media outlet, Jamal Crawford is usually hit. He answers fan questions, comments on articles that come…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nowitzki is back and the Spurs could not care less

    Dec 24, 2012, 8:00 AM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki, Elton Brand

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while starting you Christmas shopping finally…. Spurs 129, Mavericks 91: Dirk Nowitizki is back and… yikes. San Antonio just dominated that game, hitting 20-of-30 three pointers, driving into the lane, basically doing whatever they wanted whenever they wanted. Danny Green led…

  21. Kyrie Irving crosses up Monta Ellis and drops a perfect dime (VIDEO)

    Dec 23, 2012, 12:30 PM EST

    Kyrie Irving

    Kyrie Irving has the best handle in the NBA. Look, I know what you’re thinking. You’re probably worried that the Clippers’ winning streak has caused me to develop temporary amnesia and forget about the existence of Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford. Those guys are great, but I don’t remember seeing a player with a handle…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Serge Ibaka is to be feared as Thunder beat Spurs

    Dec 18, 2012, 3:05 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Ibaka plays against San Antonio Spurs during their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while thinking “if you’re going to play Santa make sure you fit down the chimney”…. Rockets 109, Knicks 96: Jeremy Lin was back in New York and he doesn’t just play well at Madison Square Garden when Carmelo Anthony is out,…

  23. Terrell Owens asked for a 10-day contract with Clippers

    Dec 12, 2012, 2:59 PM EST

    Premiere Of  Summit Entertainment's "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" - Arrivals

    Terrell Owens can’t get an NFL contract right now (39-year-old receivers rarely do), so he’s looking at some other career options. Like the NBA. Maybe not officially, but he’s been around the Clippers and their workout facility. Blake Griffin was talking about him on the Dan Patrick Show (which you can see on the NBC Sports…

  24. Video: Clippers players talk about how they like Del Negro

    Dec 11, 2012, 7:12 PM EST

    Vinny Del Negro

    When I put together a list of coaches who could be on the hot seat I added Vinny Del Negro because it was obligatory. Fans saw him in Chicago, they heard the now-gone GM wanted him out the middle of last season and there is a national sense he can’t be the guy that coaches…

  25. NBA Power Rankings: Oh-oh Thunder road, oh Thunder road

    Dec 10, 2012, 2:43 PM EST

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    A lot of the preseason talk in the West focused on the Lakers… and it still does. And too often it ends with “and the Thunder are still contenders, too.” No, the Thunder are the defending Western Conference champs, the team to beat in that conference and they look pretty good right now. Thank you…
