    Mar 5, 2013, 10:42 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    Is Matt Barnes saying anything we weren’t all thinking? When the word came down that Serge Ibaka was not getting suspended for his foul hitting Blake Griffin in the crotch the NBA twitterverse did a collective, “Really?” I don’t think Ibaka intentionally hit Griffin in a place no man wants to be hit, he was…

    If you watch even a little bit of NBA basketball, there’s no way you haven’t seen one of the Kia ads featuring Blake Griffin going back in time to give his younger self various tidbits of helpful information that will prepare him for the future that Griffin is dealing with now.

    When the news was released today that Serge Ibaka would be fined $25,000 for his below-the-belt hit on Blake Griffin during the Thunder’s win over the Clippers on Sunday, it wasn’t a shock that a suspension wasn’t handed down, but it was a bit of a surprise. The league hasn’t been afraid to retroactively drop…

  4. League downgrades J.J. Barea’s foul on Ray Allen, no fine/suspension

    Mar 5, 2013, 6:31 PM EDT

    Ray Allen, J.J. Barea

    J.J. Barea may have body checked Ray Allen to the ground, but it wasn’t done in a “unnecessary and excessive” way. At least if you ask the league. Allen may feel differently. Barea’s foul on Allen was downgraded from a flagrant 2 to a flagrant 1 by the league — that means there will be…

  5. Thunder’s Ibaka fined $25K, not suspended, for blow to Griffin

    Mar 5, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Clippers

    When you see the play above most people who are not Thunder faithful thought Serge Ibaka punched Blake Griffin in the groin and should have been ejected. But he wasn’t, it was ruled a flagrant 1 foul, and Ibaka went on to make key plays down the stretch (including drawing Griffin’s sixth foul) that helped…

    Mar 4, 2013, 5:14 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    There are times it sounds like Kobe Bryant is channeling Dalton from “Roadhouse” — “pain don’t hurt.” With the Lakers having an off day after a win over the Hawks — and before a much tougher test with Thunder Tuesday — Kobe was asked about Sunday’s other talked about play at Staples Center where Serge…

  11. Thunder overcome late rally by Clippers to win a physical one in Los Angeles

    Mar 3, 2013, 7:07 PM EDT

    ibaka griffin

    The Thunder and the Clippers are likely second round playoff opponents, should neither team be able to overtake the Spurs for the number one overall seed in the Western Conference. If it ends up happening, and if Sunday’s contest at Staples Center was any indication, we’d be in for a battle of epic proportions. Oklahoma…

    Mar 1, 2013, 5:22 PM EDT

    Greg Monroe

    This summer the draft class of 2010 is eligible for contract extensions — teams with a star they want to lock up can do what the Thunder did with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, what the Clippers did with Blake Griffin, and so on. Give your franchise player the max. So who from that draft…

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul looks to get past defending Indiana Pacers' West and Pendergraph during their NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    The Clippers probably thought they had sealed a quality road win over the Pacers much earlier than they had, getting out to a lead of as many as 17 points with 5:38 remaining in regulation. But as they’ve done all season long, the Pacers refused to quit, and went on a furious 13-0 run in…

    Feb 27, 2013, 7:59 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Bismack Biyombo

    If you’re going to beat the Clippers, you have to take away their ability to get easy baskets. The Bobcat’s didn’t. Blake Griffin was catching lobs and throwing them down all night from Chris Paul against the Charlotte “defense” and that was one of a few reasons the Clippers cruised to a 106-84 win. Above…
