Los Angeles Clippers

  1. Shumpert, Williams headline All-Star Dunk Contest field

    Feb 16, 2012, 10:53 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v New Jersey Nets

    Blake Griffin will not be back to defend his All-Star Dunk Contest crown, and you can bet no Kia cars will be on the court this time. He wasn’t the only big name to stay away — all the stars are staying home. There are some quality dunkers in the field but all the names…

  2. Report: J.R. Smith deciding between Knicks, Clippers

    Feb 16, 2012, 10:06 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Wednesday in China, J.R. Smith hopped on a plane and said “zai zian” to the Zhejiang Golden Bulls of the Chinese Basketball Association where he played during the lockout. His team is out of the playoffs and he is on his way home. The only question is, where is that plane going to land? New…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: There are days the Magic look good

    Feb 16, 2012, 9:14 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Philadelphia

    What you missed while realizing your Valentine’s Day could have gone worse…. Knicks 100, Kings 85: The perfect storm that is Jeremy Lin continues, and it is our game of the night. Hawks 101, Suns 99: Our own Brett Pollakoff was at this game and filed a report. But that doesn’t mean we won’t give…

  4. Warriors front office takes heat because Jeremy Lin got away

    Feb 15, 2012, 4:35 PM EDT

    Knicks guard Lin smiles during player introductions before the start of the Knicks' NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Minneapolis

    At the time, Golden State was letting go a little-used guard who spent time in the D-League to clear the way for a $10 million a year offer to DeAndre Jordan, the big-time center the Warriors needed (and still need). Now, they are the team that had Jeremy Lin and didn’t realize what they had.…

  5. Video: Chris Paul and Bar Refaeli on a trampoline, because we can

    Feb 14, 2012, 7:29 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    I feel a little like Adam Carolla and Jimmy Kimmel (from the old Man Show days) running this video, but how could you not? I mean, it’s Chris Paul in a Sports Illustrated photo shoot on a trampoline… Oh, and Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli can kind of catch your eye. That too. Why are we…

  6. Video: Caron Butler gets his championship ring

    Feb 14, 2012, 1:35 PM EDT

    Clippers' Butler tries to strip the ball from Lakers shooting guard Bryant during NBA preseason basketball game in Los Angeles

    Caron Butler had a good night in Dallas — he got his championship ring as part of last year’s Mavericks (he was injured through the playoffs but was key for them the first part of the year), then he went out and scored a season high 23 on his old team as part of the…

  7. J.R. Smith returns to USA Wednesday, who gets him?

    Feb 14, 2012, 12:40 PM EDT

    CBA 11/12 First Round: Guangdong Hongyuan v Zhejiang Chouzhou

    In the next 24 hours, J.R. Smith will be on the long flight from China — where he signed to play during the lockout — back to the United States. He tweeted this the other day. Ladies and Gentleman I am happy to tell you my return to the United States is offical! I will…

  8. Tuesday And-1 links: Zach Randolph is back at practice

    Feb 14, 2012, 11:44 AM EDT

    zach-randolph-game-6

    Here is our daily 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). Zach Randolph has been cleared by doctors for non-contact practices and is expected to return to the Grizzlies in early March. That would be huge…

  9. Mark Cuban rips trade of Chris Paul to Clippers

    Feb 14, 2012, 10:14 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is shown on the court before the start of play between the Mavericks and the Miami Heat in Game 3 of the NBA Finals basketball series in Dallas

    The more I listen to him, the more I think Mark Cuban doesn’t like any trade that doesn’t benefit Mark Cuban. He was one of those who opposed the trade of Chris Paul to the Lakers (which was shot down by David Stern as defacto owner of the Hornets) and now he tells ESPNDallas.com he…

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dallas can still close out games

    Feb 14, 2012, 7:35 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    What you missed while wondering why a man would try to rob a store wearing only chocolate and peanut butter… Mavericks 96, Clippers 92: What do you need to do to win in tight fourth quarters in the NBA? Execute. For example, don’t turn the ball over — the Clippers has seven fourth quarter turnovers.…

  11. Eric Gordon to have knee scoped, out another six weeks

    Feb 14, 2012, 1:56 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    When Chris Paul was traded to the Clippers, the general consensus was it was a great move for Los Angeles so long as CP3’s knees held up. Turns out, it was the Hornets who should have been warned about Eric Gordon. He has played only two games for the Hornets this season due to a…

  12. Carmelo says playing with Lin will be “dream come true”

    Feb 13, 2012, 7:08 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v New York Knicks

    Reportedly, it was Carmelo Anthony — in street clothes due to a pulled groin — going to Mike D’Antoni at halftime of the Knicks game against New Jersey and suggesting to play Jeremy Lin more that kicked off “Linsanity.” Monday, the guy who came to New York to see himself on the back pages of…

  13. “Linsanity” came when Lin stopped trying to play for others

    Feb 13, 2012, 5:23 PM EDT

    New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin shakes hands with MInnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love before game

    Just go out and play. Let God and the universe take care of the rest of it. That is the battle Jeremy Lin says he fights daily now — not trying to live up to the expectations of others, not trying to control everything, but just going out and playing basketball. Lin — a devoutly…

  14. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs advancing, Heat still on top

    Feb 13, 2012, 3:22 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    I’m beginning to wonder: Will the Eastern Conference Finals be the real NBA finals this year? Feels that way some days. 1. Heat (21-7, last week ranked 1) The Magic and Knicks combined to shoot 85 threes against the Heat in two nights. The Heat’s defensive energy does that to teams, makes them settle (although…

  15. Why the bottleneck on NBA trades? Calendar and Howard.

    Feb 13, 2012, 12:04 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    We’re a couple months into the NBA season, and there have been very few trades. Before the season we had some biggies — Chris Paul to the Lakers, er, Clippers — but once the season started, that has dried up. And you can expect things to stay pretty much dry past the All-Star game at…

  16. Report: Chris Paul leading Clippers J.R. Smith recruitment

    Feb 13, 2012, 8:07 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    J.R. Smith is expected back in the United States this week an NBA free agent. His team in China has been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs and the season ends this week. And the Clippers want him. Badly. Especially now that their starting two guard is gone for the season. The Clippers are not alone…

  17. Spike Lee texts Mark Jackson “thanks” for cutting Jeremy Lin

    Feb 11, 2012, 7:58 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    Linsanity cannot be stopped in New York… well, until Carmelo Anthony comes back and takes the ball out of Jeremy Lin’s hands. But we’re not going to worry about that yet. The legend of Lin grew Friday night when he dropped 38 on the Lakers and led the Knicks to their fourth straight win while…

  18. Video: Chris Paul drains game winner in Philly

    Feb 11, 2012, 11:59 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is good. Ridiculously good. Andre Iguodala played about as good of defense as you can on Chris Paul on the final play in Philadelphia last night, and Paul twisted, turned then faded away and drained the game winner for the Clippers like a cold-blooded assassin. There should be no debate about who is…

  19. Your NBA All-Star reserves announced, coaches went safe

    Feb 9, 2012, 7:24 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    The fans picked the five starters, but this week the coaches voted to name the reserves to the All-Star Game in Orlando. And the coaches played it safe. They went with the old names they new not the future stars. They went with veteran Joe Johnson and left out Rajon Rondo. They left out Paul…

  20. Report: Lakers to retire Shaq’s #34 next season

    Feb 9, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    Shaquille O'Neal

    From NBA.com’s Scott Howard-Cooper: Indications are Lakers will retire @Shaq uniform No. 34 next season. Brief delay due to rush of schedule, not any doubt it would happen. O’Neal, who retired after last season, played for the Lakers from 1996-2004, and is still currently the only player to win a championship after signing a max contract with…

  21. Kendrick Perkins says he deleted his twitter because of “too much negativity”

    Feb 9, 2012, 4:52 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin Kendrick Perkins

    Kendrick Perkins has gained some national attention recently thanks to his strong words about LeBron James’ twitter reaction to Blake Griffin’s play-of-the-year dunk on Perkins, and his feelings towards “elite” NBA players on twitter in general. Perkins deletehavd his twitter shortly before he made his statements, and recently there have been some insinuations that Perkins…

  22. Mo Williams wants a contract extension with Clippers

    Feb 9, 2012, 2:46 PM EDT

    Mo Williams, Ian Mahinm

    Hello, Clippers, welcome to the price of success. I know this is all new to you, but you’re going to be getting a lot of this kind of stuff now. Mo Williams wants a contract extension. Pretty much that’s what you can read into this comment from the Los Angeles Times. “I just want to…

  23. Enjoying the Jeremy Lin ride, which may get bumpy

    Feb 9, 2012, 1:58 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    We need to be honest — the three defenses that Jeremy Lin has carved up as the starting point guard for the Knicks are three terrible defenses. All three are in the bottom 10 in the league in defensive efficiency, and the best one (Utah) has slow bigs who are awful against quick guards —…

  24. Kobe says he’d choose LeBron if he could pick a teammate

    Feb 9, 2012, 12:29 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant is a scorer. Which is why getting Chris Paul — a playmaker who sets others up as well as anyone in the game — made a lot of sense to Kobe. It made less sense to David Stern (and other NBA owners) and so that trade got shot down. Wednesday Kobe was talking…

  25. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Magic cool off Heat

    Feb 9, 2012, 9:24 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    What you missed while watching a guy get bit in the face by a dog on live television… Magic 102, Heat 89: Maybe the Magic owner should tell the media he doesn’t want to trade Dwight Howard before every game. Orlando played the game it wants to play — good defense (especially challenging in the…
