  2. 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…

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

    Mar 8, 2014, 9:30 PM EDT

    glen davis 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…

  4. Is Carmelo Anthony’s smart play to opt in and play out contract with Knicks?

    Mar 7, 2014, 5:46 PM EDT

    New York Knicks vs Miami Heat

    According to every reliable source, Carmelo Anthony is going to opt out of the final year of his contract this season and look either to re-sign a five-year deal with the Knicks or move on to another team to be part of a contender. If Anthony wants to jump ship and go somewhere like oft-mentioned…

    Pau Gasol

    The Clippers beat the Lakers, 142-94, Thursday night – the biggest loss in Lakers history. In the spirit of Lakers schadenfreude, let’s dig a little deeper into the blowout: 48 – Margin of victory/defeat, the largest for the Clippers/Lakers in each franchise’s history 3 – Years since any team has been beaten so badly.

  6. Blake Griffin with a monster alley-oop throw down, even for him (VIDEO)

    Mar 7, 2014, 8:46 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    That feels pretty much how the last three quarters of the Clippers/Lakers game went Thursday night. The Clippers did whatever they wanted all night on the Lakers’ “defense” and that led to a few spectacular plays. The best of them was this ridiculous alley-oop dunk by Blake Griffin. Griffin finished with 20 points in the…

  7. Extra Pass: Golden State Warriors defending at historically high level

    Mar 7, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Jermaine O'Neal, Joakim Noah, Andrew Bogut

    BOSTON – Game-planning for the Golden State last season, the Phoenix Suns wrote “Finesse” on their whiteboard. “Be physical with them, and they tend to back away,” said Jermaine O’Neal, who played for Phoenix last year. Now a Warrior, O’Neal didn’t hesitate to share the observation of their defense with his new teammates. “I told…

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

    Mar 6, 2014, 12:55 PM EDT

    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…

  10. Report: Carmelo Anthony’s camp doesn’t want to wait for 2015 Knicks rebuild

    Mar 5, 2014, 1:42 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    Every player says it. Carmelo Anthony is saying it. It’s is some variant of “I’m not about the money, I’m about winning.” Then the money goes on the table and it’s all about the money. That’s the choice facing Carmelo Anthony this summer — a big payday from the Knicks and trust them to rebuild…

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

    Mar 5, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT

    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…

  12. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Miami putting its foot down on the gas

    Mar 3, 2014, 3:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The PBT power rankings have returned with not a lot of change from last week — Miami, Indiana, San Antonio and Oklahoma City are the top four (in whatever order you wish) then there is a gap to the Clippers, Rockets and teams trying to knock on that door. Meanwhile the Sixers look like they…

  13. DeMar DeRozan wants to know where he’d get picked in 2009 re-draft

    Mar 3, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Warriors Raptors Basketball

    Imagining how previous NBA drafts would play out in hindsight is always fun, an instant debate starter for basketball fans. I’m sure we’ve all wasted a countless hours analyzing questions like: Carmelo Anthony or Chris Bosh No. 3 behind LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in 2004? Do half the top-eight picks in 2013 remain in…

  14. Doc Rivers says Danny Granger ‘ideally’ would be a starter, but he has to mark him as active first

    Mar 2, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    granger clippers inactive

    Danny Granger was set to make his debut for the Clippers on Saturday, after signing with L.A. following a trade from the Pacers and a buyout from the Sixers. But a mistake by Doc Rivers when submitting his lineup inadvertently left Granger off of the game’s active roster. From the Associated Press (via Basketball Insiders):…

  15. PBT Podcast: Your twitter questions get us talking Clippers’ moves, Knicks’ future

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Clippers

    We’re back with the latest PBT Podcast and today you set the topics — myself and  Eytan Shander of NBC Sports Radio discuss your twitter questions. First up we discuss the Clippers moves at the buyout deadline — I think getting Glen Davis is huge, Danny Granger on the other hand is not better than Jared…

  16. It’s official: Danny Granger is a member of the Los Angeles Clippers

    Feb 28, 2014, 6:31 PM EDT

    Portland Trailblazers v Indiana Pacers

    Doc Rivers realized earlier this season that this Clippers roster was not going to be enough to contend in the West. Now during buyout season he’s gone and added some talent. Glen Davis as the third big will be the most important addition — he’s solid and that makes him a massive upgrade over Ryan…

  17. The Extra Pass: Is the second tier in West ready to challenge Thunder, Spurs?

    Feb 28, 2014, 8:51 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    We know Oklahoma City is a contender — despite their little three-game blip as they re-adjust to Russell Westbrook in the lineup, they are still 21-7 when Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook both play this season, they have a top-10 offense and defense when you look at points per possession. The same is true of…

  18. Reports: Danny Granger will sign with Clippers when he clears waivers Friday

    Feb 28, 2014, 1:27 AM EDT

    Danny Granger

    Doc Rivers has been looking for some help at the three — Jared Dudley has not panned out as hoped and Matt Barnes is solid as a reserve but not the guy who starts on a contender. Rivers even tried Hedo Turkoglu in that role. Now Danny Granger is going to get a chance. Granger,…

  19. Wednesday night NBA grades: How about that Kyrie Irving?

    Feb 27, 2014, 4:05 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while you and your friends debated canned vs. bottled beer…. Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers. He wasn’t in attack mode, he was in seek-and-destroy mode. With Dion Waiters and basically everyone who can shoot outside 15 feet injured he knows he has to be the man…

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

    Feb 27, 2014, 3:32 AM EDT

    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…

  21. It’s official: Sixers reach buyout with Danny Granger; Clippers frontrunners to land him

    Feb 26, 2014, 5:27 PM EDT

    Danny Granger

    Danny Granger is going to get his chance to play for a contender — and his next contract. Which it looks like he will do as a member of the Los Angeles Clippers. While this has been expected for days it has become official: The Philadelphia 76ers have reached a buyout agreement with Granger, ,…

    Feb 26, 2014, 4:41 PM EDT

    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…

  23. A four-point line in the NBA? Larger court? League not talking about it, just fans.

    Feb 25, 2014, 5:50 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    We’ve all seen guys like Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Jamal Crawford launch three pointers from several feet beyond the arc and knock them down with enough regularity that defenses have to respect the shot. What if those guys shooting from out there were rewarded with a four-point basket? Henry Abbott (ESPN.com’s just promoted NBA…
