Los Angeles Clippers

  1. Three Stars of the Night whose seasons are over

    Apr 18, 2013, 2:23 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Miami Heat

    Pau Gasol (17 points, 20 rebounds and 11 assists), John Henson (28 points and 16 rebounds), Zach Randolph (25 points and 19 rebounds), Chris Paul (25 points, 11 assists and no turnovers) and Gerald Green (34 points) will have at least a chance to make their mark in the playoffs, but we’re honoring three players…

  2. Denver wins, earns West No. 3 seed; Clippers get home court

    Apr 18, 2013, 2:03 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    While everybody was watching the overtime drama to see how the bottom half of the Western Conference would play out, there were a lot of questions in the middle of the conference as well: Could Denver hold on to the three seed? Could the Clippers hold off the Grizzlies and have home court in the…

  3. DeAndre Jordan throws down alley-oop Lillard has no chance of stopping (VIDEO)

    Apr 17, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    There are better front lines in the NBA (hello Memphis!) but there is no front line that runs the court better than the Los Angeles Clippers. Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan spring up and down the court, and that means occasionally in transition they get matched up on a guy who has no chance physically…

  4. Chauncey Billups with between legs assist to Blake Griffin (VIDEO)

    Apr 17, 2013, 8:41 AM EDT

    Chauncey Billups

    Chauncey Billups is back. After missing 11 of the  last 12 games with a groin injury, Billups was back on the floor trying to get some rhythm back before the playoffs. It sure looked like he had is mojo back on this play, where he makes the nifty between-the-legs pass to Blake Griffin. And Griffin…

  5. PBT’s NBA season awards: LeBron for MVP is the easy one

    Apr 17, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Heat's James prepares to dunk against the Bulls in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Miami

    In the NBA, reputations are made and broken in the playoffs — but that is like a different season completely. The NBA gives out its awards based on the regular season. And this season a couple awards are obvious, but a couple could go a lot of different directions. Here are PBT’s awards for the…

  6. Clippers keep dream of three seed alive with easy win over Blazers

    Apr 17, 2013, 1:55 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    In the last couple weeks the Clippers have hit a playoff stride — they had won five games in a row coming into Tuesday night and they were motivated because they still had playoff seeding to play for. On the other side the Trail Blazers had lost 11 in a row and have looked like…

  7. Tuesday And-1 links: Dennis Rodman is heading back to North Korea

    Apr 16, 2013, 7:50 PM EDT

  8. Pistons owner says he expects playoffs next year; quiet on Dumars, Frank

    Apr 16, 2013, 11:46 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons head coach Frank talks with Pistons players during their NBA basketball game against the Toronto Raptors in Auburn Hills

    It’s not hard to see some serious potential in Detroit — rookie Andre Drummond is the real deal and paired with Greg Monroe could form the best front line in basketball in a couple years. Add in some young backcourt guys like Brandon Knight and Kyle Singler who could have a role, and you’ve got…

  9. Clippers move closer to home court advantage in first round of playoffs with win over Grizzlies

    Apr 13, 2013, 11:27 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Marc Gasol

    The Clippers got a huge win in terms of their possible playoff position on Saturday, by rolling into Memphis and taking down the Grizzlies 91-87. The victory puts L.A. in the driver’s seat for home court advantage in a potential first round matchup against these same Grizzlies, and gives the team a chance of moving…

  11. Baseline-to-baseline recaps: Heat set franchise record for wins, Lakers remain in playoff position

    Apr 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while waiting for Microsoft Office to come to your mobile devices … Lakers 113, Trail Blazers 106: Kobe Bryant scored 47 points to out-duel rookie Damian Lillard, who finished with 38. Bryant dragged his team to victory for the second straight night, and…

  12. What Wednesday’s games mean: Heat can lock up best record; Lakers need win

    Apr 10, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers

    There is one week of NBA regular-season basketball left — next Wednesday, April 17 is the final day of games, then we get to focus on the playoffs. Right now teams are jockeying for playoff position — or in the case of the Lakers and Jazz a spot in the playoffs. Which means a lot…

  13. Fans tweets to count toward MVP voting

    Apr 9, 2013, 8:15 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James trots back after scoring a basket against the Philadelphia 76ers in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    LeBron James is going to win his fourth MVP going away. It’s a sure thing. But if you think we in the media are clearly missing how great Tyler Hansbrough has been this season and think there should be a vote for him, now you can do it yourself on twitter. The NBA is taking…

  14. Quote of the Day: Dwight Howard says Lakers could still win title

    Apr 9, 2013, 3:38 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard

    “If we get into the playoffs, there’s no doubt in my mind and in any of our minds, that we can win a championship. It would be stupid of me to sit here and say to you [media] guys that if we make it to the playoffs, we’ll be out in the first round. I…

  15. Carmelo Anthony passes LeBron for top selling jersey

    Apr 9, 2013, 10:18 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Anthony reacts after scoring against Miami Heat during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    LeBron James may be the best player in the NBA, but Carmelo Anthony is the biggest star on the biggest NBA stage — the scorer leading the best New York Knicks team in more than a decade — and that sells a lot of jerseys. Anthony moved past LeBron into the top spot in national…

  17. NBA Power Rankings: Knicks climb up to No. 2

    Apr 8, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT

    Raymond Felton, Carmelo Anthony, Jason Kidd

    Welcome to the penultimate PBT power rankings for the season. If you win 12 games in a row you can get the No. 2 spot, but if you asked me to pick who wins a seven game series between the Thunder and Knicks it would look different than this ranking. Same with the Spurs. But…

  18. Report: Hornets still looking to move Eric Gordon this summer

    Apr 8, 2013, 10:20 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets' Gordon reacts after a call by officials while his team took on the Miami Heat during their NBA basketball game in New Orleans

    At the trade deadline the New Orleans Hornets had some discussions about trades for shooting guard Eric Gordon, but nothing came of it. Not surprising — it’s not easy to move a guy on a max contract coming off knee surgery. But after an up and down season where he averaged 16.5 points on 40.2…

  19. Blake Griffin was dunking all over Lakers Sunday (VIDEO)

    Apr 8, 2013, 9:01 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin smiles after hitting a three-point shot against the Los Angeles Lakers during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Blake Griffin dunks on a lot of teams. Of course, it’s easy to say a lot of teams don’t have Dwight Howard protecting the rim and the Lakers shouldn’t allow this. The problem for the Lakers is their perimeter defense is so poor Howard is often trying to stop the guard driving in for a…

  20. Three Stars of the Night: Three All-Stars lead teams to wins

    Apr 8, 2013, 12:31 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    This was a tough night to narrow the list to three, some guys with huge games miss the cut — Russell Westbrook with 36 points and a near triple-double, Nikola Vucevic with 21 points and 21 boards for the Magic. But there was a key theme to go with for the night — current or…

  21. Clippers clinch first division title in team history with win over Lakers

    Apr 7, 2013, 6:29 PM EDT

    Clippers forward Griffin grabs a rebound as Lakers forward Gasol defends during first half NBA game in Los Angeles

    Division titles don’t mean a whole lot in the NBA these days. But for a Clippers franchise that has been mired in mediocrity or worse for the better part of its existence, clinching the first Pacific Division championship in franchise history with a runaway 109-95 win over a Lakers team with more than any of…

  22. Blake Griffin says Clippers shouldn’t hang division title banner at Staples Center

    Apr 6, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    lakers banners

    The Clippers are having one of their best seasons in franchise history, but unless it ends in the team’s first NBA title, Blake Griffin is among those who aren’t interested in putting up any banners at the Staples Center to commemorate the accomplishment. Having already reached the 50-win mark for the first time ever, the…

  23. Do Clippers have chemistry issues? Depends who you ask.

    Apr 5, 2013, 7:29 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Los Angeles Clippers

    We need to acknowledge that this is a historic season for the Los Angeles Clippers — it is the franchise’s first time ever to 50 wins and first time ever it will win the Pacific Division. Some luck in the draft, some aggressive moves by management and owner Donald Sterling writing bigger checks has changed…

  24. DeAndre Jordan: Fans who question his devotion to improving free throws are ‘idiots’

    Apr 5, 2013, 4:05 PM EDT

    Knicks guard Kidd holds on to Clippers center Jordan from going to the basket during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    DeAndre Jordan, a career 43 percent free-throw shooter, is shooting 39 percent from the line this season. Via Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles TImes: “Yeah, I’m aware of it, but I also work on it,” Jordan said. “I could understand it if I just didn’t work on my free-throw shooting and I’m just going…

  25. Grant Hill says there’s a ‘strong chance’ he’ll retire after this season

    Apr 4, 2013, 9:47 PM EDT

    Grant Hill Clippers

    Grant Hill joined the Clippers last summer, after the one-year offer that was presented by the Suns was inferior to the two-year deal he received from Los Angeles. That second year may not end up mattering much after all, since Hill says he’s leaning toward retiring at the conclusion of this season. From Paul Coro…
