Los Angeles Clippers

  1. Chris Paul doesn’t buy Jamal Crawford doesn’t practice dribbling

    Nov 3, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    At one point in the second quarter of the Clippers win over the Lakers Friday night — on what was supposed to be the Lakers home court — Jamal Crawford crossed over a Lakers defender to get an open look on the left wing, a move so sweet there was an audible gasp from the…

  2. Video: Watch DeAndre Jordan almost kick the rim on a dunk

    Nov 3, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Dwight Howard

    DeAndre Jordan can jump high and finish. If you want him to rotate quickly on defense or knock down his free throws you are talking to the wrong guy. But if you want a guy to throw it down and give you a highlight, he’s your man. Jordan drew the foul on this play —…

  3. Lakers identity crisis runs into confident Clippers, result is 0-3 Lakers

    Nov 3, 2012, 3:16 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES — The Clippers know who they are. They are Chris Paul’s team, Lob City, a lot of pick-and-roll, Jamal Crawford breaking guys ankles, Blake Griffin attacking the rim The Lakers are… still trying to figure it out. Through three games the Lakers have tried on more personalities than an 13-year-old girl. And none…

  4. Steve Nash will sit out for Lakers. Welcome to the Steve Blake era.

    Nov 2, 2012, 10:06 PM EDT

    Lakers Steve Nash smiles as he plays in the Lakers season opening game against  Dallas

    As we pretty much all expected, Steve Nash will not suit up for the Lakers Friday night against the Clippers, the contusion on his shin still limiting movement too much, Lakers coach Mike Brown confirmed before the game on Friday. Steve Blake will start, and Brown said both Chris Duhon and Darius Morris could see…

  5. Report: Antonio McDyess thinking about return to NBA

    Nov 2, 2012, 9:44 AM EDT

    McDYESS_ANTONIO

    Antonio McDyess, last seen coming off the Spurs bench and playing respectably if not well, is thinking about returning to the NBA after a year off. With teams always looking for help along the front line, and with his reputation as being good in the locker room, the 6’9” McDyess might get some attention. Adrian…

  6. Kobe Bryant: “’Everybody shut up. Let us work.”

    Nov 2, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    Lakers starters chat during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Hey, Charles Barkley and Shaq. Hey, Lakers haters who have savored the past week. Hey Lakers fans. Yes you. The ones saying the it’s all Mike Brown’s fault the Lakers are 0-2. The ones blaming the Princeton offense for everything except Hurricane Sandy. All of you. Kobe Bryant has two words for you: Shut up.…

  7. Why didn’t Dwight Howard and Chris Paul end up playing together?

    Nov 1, 2012, 11:00 PM EDT

    2009 NBA All-Star Game

    Today’s NBA is nothing like the eras of the league that have long since passed. Picture Michael Jordan recruiting Isiah Thomas to join the Bulls, or Larry Bird trying to coerce Magic Johnson into leaving L.A. for the bright lights cold weather and rickety conditions of the ancient Boston Garden. Exactly — it just wasn’t…

  8. Eric Gordon says he had recovery setback, there is no timetable for return

    Nov 1, 2012, 3:10 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    It just feels like there is a missing puzzle pieces in New Orleans. Wednesday, both Hornets GM Dell Demps and coach Monte Williams — two player-friendly guys — basically suggested Hornets doctors say there is nothing wrong with Eric Gordon’s surgically-repaired knee. But he says there is. Then Thursday Gordon said things were pretty bad,…

  9. Video: Jamal Crawford breaks Rudy Gay’s ankles

    Nov 1, 2012, 8:30 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford, Marc Gasol

    There were plenty of highlights from the first big night of games in the NBA, but this is my favorite. Jamal Crawford has long had one of the better crossovers in the NBA and if you think he’s lost his touch, I think you should go ask Rudy Gay. Although, this was more of a…

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Lakers defense sucks, too

    Nov 1, 2012, 4:13 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Jodie Meeks

    Our nightly recap of every gamegaround the NBA. It’s what you missed while buying dive bar T-shirts…. Trail Blazers 116, Lakers 106: In the season opener, Dallas scored at a 108.7 points per 100 possessions pace on the Lakers (for comparison, only five teams in the NBA averaged giving up more points per 100 last…

  11. Kenyon Martin wants back in NBA — for mini mid-level

    Oct 31, 2012, 5:30 PM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    Under the new CBA, a lot of quality veterans who were used to getting a few million to play have had to sign for less than they thought they were worth, taking veteran minimum deals. Kenyon Martin wouldn’t play that game, he wanted to get paid. Now Martin isn’t playing any game — no team…

  12. Kyrie Irving would like to remind you he is very good. And Cavaliers win.

    Oct 31, 2012, 12:47 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Cleveland Cavaliers

    You know why the Cleveland and Washington were on the NBA opening night schedule along with marquee teams like the Lakers, Heat and Celtics? Because the NBA likes to showcase its future, and here were John Wall and Kyrie Irving to entertain you… except John Wall is out for a while with a cracked patella.…

  13. Clippers’ Matt Barnes suspended one game following arrest

    Oct 30, 2012, 4:25 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    Matt Barnes, the Clippers’ best wing player during the preseason, has been suspended one game by the league after pleading no contest this summer to a misdemeanor following an arrest on outstanding traffic warrants. Barnes will sit out the Clippers season opener Wednesday at home against the Memphis Grizzlies Back in July Matt Barnes was…

  14. A guide for which teams to watch

    Oct 30, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Steve Nash, Dwight Howard, Metta World Peace, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol

    Our ideas of fun may be completely different. Personally, I like to pretend I’m playing Supermarket Sweep in the grocery store, but you may like going out on “dates” or “talking to actual people.” With that said, I can’t in good faith tell you which teams will be fun this year. That’s a decision for…

  15. PBT Power Rankings: Heat start season on top, Bobcats in cellar

    Oct 29, 2012, 4:56 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh,Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    It’s that time of year — the PBT’s NBA Power Rankings are back. Power Rankings before a single game is played are admittedly a bit silly, but then again the NBA has playoffs to determine which team is best so really all power rankings are silly and just for the entertainment value. It would take…

  16. Four teams that could head off a Lakers vs. Heat NBA final

    Oct 29, 2012, 2:42 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    It’s the consensus of prognosticators (and me as well) — the NBA finals will be the Miami Heat vs. Los Angeles Lakers. Kobe Bryant vs. LeBron James. You can already sense David Stern drooling like a Pavlovian dog thinking about the television ratings. What teams could destroy David Stern’s dream? There are four. While we…

  17. Video: Blake Griffin helps his younger self in clever Kia ads

    Oct 29, 2012, 2:29 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Blake Griffin has just found his groove in front of the camera. He’s got a great, dry  sense of humor that works really well with the right material. These ads from Kia are the right material. Pretty funny stuff. Personally, I’d be afraid of what 10-year-old me would say back to current me if I…

  18. Video: Griffin, Clippers dance Gangnam style on the bench

    Oct 29, 2012, 11:36 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Blake Griffin

    If DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin are doing the dance on the bench, has said dance jumped the shark? Can we move on now? Well their ain’t no dance party like a Caron Butler dance party, and it was going onto Psy’s “Gangnam Style”  during the Clippers final preseason game. What I enjoy most is…

  19. Count LeBron among those impressed with Anthony Davis

    Oct 28, 2012, 7:01 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    We all knew Anthony Davis was potentially a very special player — some scouts graded him out as the best player in years, better than Blake Griffin or a host of other recent No. 1 overall picks. But he was supposed to be a bit of a project on offense, a guy with potential that…

  20. Video: Daryl Morey talks Rockets’ trade for James Harden

    Oct 28, 2012, 5:31 PM EDT

    daryl-morey-rockets

    Rockets GM Daryl Morey has been on a quest for an elite player for more than a year — Pau Gasol (part of the Chris Paul trade David Stern blew up), Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony — and he thinks he finally has one in James Harden. Morey was on Comcast SportsNet Houston to talk about…

  21. Lamar Odom says he doesn’t think he’ll be ready for opener

    Oct 27, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom was expected to be a steal for the Clippers — they needed frontcourt depth behind Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan and if the former Sixth Man of the Year could return to form them could provide that and more. Well, he can when he’s on the court. Which may well not be season…

  22. Cuban says no final decision, Delonte West could return to Mavs

    Oct 27, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Mavericks owner Cuban waves to fans before the start of Mavericks versus 76ers NBA basketball game in Philadelphia

    When the Dallas Mavericks suspended Delonte West this week, it had a pretty permanent feeling. There’s the part where the Mavs said it was indefinite. Or the reports they were negotiating with his agent on a buyout. Or the part where they went out and got Eddy Curry and Chris Douglas-Roberts to potentially fill in…

  23. With Silver, NBA gets same business with softer face

    Oct 26, 2012, 11:50 AM EDT

    NBA Commissioner David Stern Announces Retirement

    Things are not going to change much. There will come a time, just a few years into his tenure as commissioner, when Adam Silver will walk out on the stage at the NBA Draft and be instantly booed by fans. Just as David Stern has been for years. A lot of things will stay the…

  24. NBA season preview: New Orleans Hornets

    Oct 26, 2012, 10:40 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Houston Rockets

    Last Season: The player the franchise had built itself around, Chris Paul, decided he wanted out before last season began. He did so in a far less-aggravating way than his superstar counterparts (we’re looking at you, Mr. Anthony and Mr. Howard), but he did it just the same. Since the key piece the Hornets received in…

  25. Video: Another day, another CP3 to Blake Griffin ally-oop

    Oct 26, 2012, 8:44 AM EDT

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

    They make it look routine. There are challengers to the “most entertaining team in the NBA” crown that for my money the Clippers still have. OKC is always good, Denver is going to be one of those teams this year but the Clippers are just fun. They have Chris Paul throwing lobs to Blake Griffin.…
