Los Angeles Clippers

  1. Wade, Bosh, Allen all could be out for Heat vs. Clippers Friday

    Feb 8, 2013, 12:40 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade drives between New Orleans Hornets in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    If you paid a lot of money to see the Heat and Clippers in an All-Star battle Friday night, I’d hold my breath. The good news is the Clippers could be getting Chris Paul back — their MVP candidate is a game time decision, but it is thought he will play. Not so much for…

  2. 2013 Slam Dunk Contest: Jeremy Evans will defend title against Green, Bledsoe, Ross, Faried, and James White

    Feb 7, 2013, 7:14 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Utah’s Jeremy Evans — the human pogo stick — will be back to defend his All-Star weekend Sprite Dunk Contest title. But a repeat will not be easy because the NBA has lined up some high flyers to step up to challenge him — Gerald Green of the Pacers, James White of the Knicks, Eric…

  3. Thursday And-1 Links: Blake Griffin taps Chandler Parsons in the… watch the video

    Blake Griffin

    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 like old ladies like to complain about how loud movies are now days (written…

  4. The Dallas Mavericks are growing mediocre beards

    Feb 7, 2013, 3:07 PM EDT

    BKB-GER-US-ALBA-MAVERICKS

    You’ve probably heard of guys growing letting their facial hair grow for the postseason. The Clippers did it last year with hilarious results — Blake Griffin made Paul Pierce‘s beard look lustrous and full by comparison. The tradition of playoff beards has been around a long time in all sports, but the Dallas Mavericks are…

  5. Clippers likely to get Chris Paul, Chauncey Billups back Friday

    Feb 7, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    How much does Chris Paul mean to the Clippers? They have looked like a contender for much of the season with him running the show, but without him the last nine games they have gone 3-6. And it’s not like his backup stinks — a whole lot of teams are trying to trade for Eric…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: LeBron, Wade enough for Heat

    Feb 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Rockets Heat Basketball

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while trying out your stylish new Get Smart shoe-phone…. Heat 114, Rockets 108: What a fun finish. After collapsing in the finals last year against the Heat, James Harden exacted a little personal revenge. Harden was a one-man wrecking crew, scoring 36 points…

  7. Durant admits he needs to “shut up,” stop getting technicals

    Feb 6, 2013, 5:10 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Three

    Kevin Durant has become a complainer — the “nicest guy in the NBA” has joined the superstar trend of complaining about calls to the referees. And the yapping has cost him — he is tied for the league lead with 9 technicals. The other guys on the list are notorious complainers — Carmelo Anthony, Matt…

  8. Will Rockets make run at Andrew Bynum this summer? Will others?

    Feb 6, 2013, 3:05 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    It’s part of the NBA’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement — it is better financially for a potential free agent to become a free agent and re-sign with his team than to just sign an extension. So even if a sure max player has no intention of leaving a team, he has to at least dip…

  9. Chris Paul, Blake Griffin out again Wednesday vs. Magic

    Feb 6, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers have struggled of late going 2-6 in their eight games without Chris Paul in the lineup. They are 0-1 when Blake Griffin is out as well. We’ll see what happens in CP3s ninth game out Wednesday, although it’s against a team even more banged up — Orlando. Chris Paul and Blake Griffin are…

  10. The Extra Pass: The Eric Bledsoe Predicament

    Feb 6, 2013, 9:05 AM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe Clippers

    Los Angeles Clippers guard Eric Bledsoe is one great big problem. He’s a problem for opponents who have to bring the ball up against him. He’s a problem for big men that think they’ll safely collect rebounds. He’s a problem for the backpedaling guard in transition that has to stay in front of him. He’s…

  11. Tuesday And-1links: Chris Paul could be back this weekend

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Pacers, Bulls get together for shootout

    Feb 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Pacers' West shoots the basketball defended by Bulls' Boozer during the first quarter of their NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while building a nuclear fusion reactor in your garage like any normal teenager…. Pacers 111, Bulls 101: If you were expecting a defense struggle between two of the top three defenses in the Association… well, sorry. There wasn’t a lot of defense and…

  13. Blake Griffin out for Clippers Monday versus Wizards

    Feb 4, 2013, 7:44 PM EDT

    Clippers Raptors Basketball

    When Washington came to Los Angeles they played Blake Griffin physically with Nene and Kevin Seraphin, holding him relatively in check (in what was a close game). I was curious to see how Griffin and the Clippers would counter that. We’ll never know. Griffin was a late scratch for the Clippers with a hamstring issue…

  14. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs still riding along in top slot

    Feb 4, 2013, 2:46 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Tony Parker

    Not a lot of changes at the very top, although we see the Knicks and Nuggets making climbs with winning streaks. At the bottom the Magic have lost 9 in a row, lost Big Baby for the season and are about to trade their best shooter in the next couple of weeks. Do they ever…

  15. Kevin Garnett to Clippers trade nowhere close to happening

    Feb 4, 2013, 10:22 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    At this time of year, teams have some preliminary discussions about more trades than you do with your buddies in your fantasy league — teams will even ask about guys they never would trade, just to get a sense of their market value. There is a Mississippi River of back-channel or down-low trade conversations that…

  16. Report: Clippers have contacted Celtics about trading for Kevin Garnett

    Feb 3, 2013, 8:01 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers have been sliding a bit recently, but that’s been largely due to the absence of Chris Paul, who’s missed more time than initially expected with a bruised knee. That apparently hasn’t deterred the franchise’s thinking, however, that with all of its pieces healthy, it can contend legitimately for the title this season. This…

  17. Boston wins third straight because of their… offense? Yup.

    Feb 3, 2013, 5:05 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Courtney Lee

    The Boston Celtics won their fourth straight game without Rajon Rondo — this one against a title contender from the West (well, contender unless you ask Charles Barkley) — because of their high-powered offense. You read that right. The Celtics without Rondo and Jared Sullinger abused the fifth-best defense in the NBA this season on…

  18. Jamal Crawford broke his nose, will be a game-time decision Sunday against Celtics

    Feb 2, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    The Clippers are already struggling to put together wins with Chris Paul missing time due to a bruised knee, and now they’re facing the possibility of playing without their highest-powered scoring option off the bench. Jamal Crawford broke his nose in the fourth quarter of the Clippers’ loss in Toronto on Friday, reports Brad Turner…

  19. Rudy Gay scores 20 points in debut with Raptors (VIDEO)

    Feb 2, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Rudy Gay

    Rudy Gay played his first game with the Raptors on Friday, after being the main piece in a three-team trade that sent him out of Memphis due to the team’s finances more than anything else. Gay came off the bench in his Toronto debut, and finished with a team-high 20 points in 33 minutes as…

  20. Caron Butler tricks Jonas Valanciunas, gets a steal at end of Clippers blowout loss to Raptors (VIDEO)

    Feb 2, 2013, 12:10 AM EDT

    Caron Butler

    The Clippers essentially didn’t bother to show up Friday night in Toronto, falling behind by as many as 31 points before eventually losing 98-73. Caron Butler shot just 3-of-12 from the field in 37 minutes, which may explain why he attempted to trick Jonas Valanciunas into getting one more chance to score as the clock…

  21. Wade tried to get LeBron to enter dunk contest. He failed.

    Feb 1, 2013, 5:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James and Wade speak during a time out during Game 1 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff against New York Knicks in Miami

    No matter how much money people are willing to throw at him, LeBron James has said no every time the league has called about him being in the All-Star weekend dunk contest. Now Dwyane Wade has come calling. Under the new Saturday format, the Western and Eastern Conferences compete against each other in events like…

  22. Clippers Matt Barnes suspended game for foul on Stiemsma

    Feb 1, 2013, 2:38 PM EDT

    L.A. Clippers' forward Matt Barnes pushes Minnesota Timberwolves' center Greg Stiemsma during the first half of their NBA basketball game in the Target Center in Minneapolis

    Yes, that deserved a suspension — you go at a guy’s neck, you get ejected and suspended for a game. The league officially suspended the Clippers Matt Barnes one game for his flagrant foul II on Gregg Stiemsma of the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday. Barnes will sit out the Clippers game Friday night against Toronto. The…

  23. Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul named team captains for All-Star Saturday Night

    Jan 31, 2013, 8:40 PM EDT

    dwyane wade chris paul

    We know what you’re thinking. Since when does All-Star Saturday Night — the evening of skill-based competitions that includes the Slam Dunk Contest — have team captains? Since this season. And since it’s all in the name of charity, we don’t see any reason it shouldn’t happen. Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul were named team…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: For one night at least Celtics look fine post-Rondo

    Jan 31, 2013, 9:34 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while thinking you may have finally found the perfect job… Suns 92, Lakers 86: Ouch. You can apply that one word sentence to Dwight Howard’s shoulder, he left the game midway through the fourth quarter and did not return, seeming to aggravate his…

  25. Matt Barnes ejected for flagrant-two foul on Greg Stiemsma (VIDEO)

    Jan 30, 2013, 10:09 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    Matt Barnes was ejected in the second quarter of Wednesday night’s game between the Clippers and the Timberwolves, after violently grabbing the neck of Greg Stiemsma. Barnes apparently didn’t like the screen Stiemsma set, and initially shoved him while trying to fight through, before delivering the far more violent shot the second time around. It…
