Los Angeles Clippers

  1. No team has a drop off like Portland when Lillard, Aldridge sit

    Jan 3, 2013, 2:40 PM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Pablo Prigioni

    The first thing you should know about the +/- stat is that is says as much about the person who replaces a player as it does the player himself. Which makes sense when you look at a fantastic bit of work by NBA.com’s John Schuhmann, a list of the NBA’s biggest difference makers — a…

  2. Blake Griffin three hits side of backboard; Warriors, fans have fun with that (VIDEO)

    Jan 3, 2013, 11:53 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    That Blake Griffin missed a three isn’t really news — he’s 2-of-11 from there this season and most of those shots, like the one above, come late in the clock when he doesn’t have the time to get a better one. But when you are All-Star Blake Griffin and you hit the side of the…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nets, Warriors get statement wins

Carlesimo has his signature win and for a night the Nets looked like the team from the first weeks of the season. Oh, they’re…

  4. Three Stars of the night: Getting your team wins against elite

    Jan 3, 2013, 2:58 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    There were so many people who could have made three stars of the night tonight we could have done 10 stars of the night. But, for the sake of my sanity (such as it is) we are keeping it at three. So how do you separate the top three? It’s not just numbers, but who…

  5. Blake Griffin has awkward fall after flagrant foul by Ezeli (VIDEO)

    Jan 3, 2013, 1:08 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Blake Griffin starts his drive from the top of the key, goes right and blows by Festus Ezeli and as he starts to elevate for the shot Ezeli hooks his arm. The result is an awkward and ugly foul that earned Ezeli a flagrant one foul. Griffin laid on the ground for a little bit grabbing his head…

  6. Wednesday And-1 Links: Is Serge Ibaka the NBA’s most improved?

  7. Grant Hill hopes to be playing for Clippers later this month

    Jan 2, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

    Grant Hill Clippers

    A lot of NBA coaches wish they had Vinny Del Negro’s problem — too many talented players to give minutes to. Because the Clippers are winning there is little grumbling, but it’s a challenge Del Negro and others have admitted to. Soon there will be another wing player demanding minutes on the active roster. Grant…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lots of ‘Melo, not much else for Knicks

    Jan 2, 2013, 8:03 AM EDT

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while breaking your New Year’s resolutions already…. Nuggets 92, Clippers 78: The Clippers win streak dies at 17on a night they were just ice-cold from the floor — 38.5 percent as a team, with leading scorer Jamal Crawford shooting 2-of-11.…

  9. Ice-cold Clippers win streak ends at 17 in Denver

    Jan 2, 2013, 12:47 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    The Clippers were not going to win the next 50 games, there was going to be a day when the shots would just clang off the rim. There was going to be a night when nothing went right. That night was Jan. 1 in Denver. The Clippers had shot 48.3% last 15 games, and 41.9…

  10. NBA’s best crossovers of 2012 (video)

    Jan 1, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    I like a good dunk as much as the next guy, but if you give me my highlight loop of choice it would be crossovers. These are just so much fun. The fine folks at NBA.com have been putting together these year-end compilations, which have been fun. Well, this one wasn’t a lot of fun…

  11. LeBron takes ‘walking the dog’ to an entirely new level (VIDEO)

    Jan 1, 2013, 1:01 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    With under two minutes remaining in overtime of Miami’s game against the Magic on Monday, the Heat were trailing, and wanted to preserve every precious second on the clock to ensure enough possessions were available for the team to come back and get this victory. They got it down the stretch, but time ended up…

  12. Top 10 NBA dunks of 2012 (VIDEO)

    Jan 1, 2013, 10:31 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Jared Sullinger

    WIth 2012 officially in the books, it’s time to look back on the top 10 dunks of the past year. And just as we all expected, Byron Mullens makes the list and kicks things off at number 10. Yeah, I don’t know either. But his flying jam down the lane after getting his own rebound…

  13. Top 10 NBA bloopers of 2012 (VIDEO)

    Dec 31, 2012, 11:56 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    As we count down to the new year, let’s relive some of the lighter NBA moments of 2012 that we were fortunate enough to experience. At 10, we have Lamar Odom saying he’s with the Lakers in his first season with the Clippers. Wishful thinking, my friend. At 9, we have Omer Asik tipping the…

  14. Kobe says this is the best Clippers team he’s ever seen

    Dec 31, 2012, 12:42 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    The Clippers are the best team in Los Angeles. Right now, it’s not all that close. But Los Angeles is still a Lakers town. So when people want to validate how good the Clippers are they go and ask the Lakers about it. Because that’s just kind of how L.A. works. So ESPNLA.com’s Dave McMenamin…

  15. Video: Blake Griffin’s between-the-legs warmup slam

    Dec 31, 2012, 11:04 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    What’s crazy is how nonchalant Blake Griffin is about this dunk. You know, just your usual between-the-legs slam one throws down every day. Which I guess if you are Blake Griffin you do, but still. He and the Clippers are a walking, talking highlight show. But one that is defending well, forcing turnovers and that…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Boston’s defense has serious issues

    Dec 31, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while in a massive food fight including flour and eggs…. Clippers 107, Jazz 96: The Clippers win streak is at 17 and if you are having an early season MVP discussion and not including Chris Paul in the mix, you…

  17. Three Stars of the Night: The Butler did it

    Dec 31, 2012, 2:14 AM EDT

    Ryan Anderson, Caron Butler

    Four games, three stars on a Sunday night. As always there are some honorable mention guys left out — Tony Parker with his 21, Monta Ellis with 30 points and 9 assists, and Al Jefferson with 30 against the Clippers front line almost made the cut. But instead, it’s an all-perimeter guys three stars tonight.…

  18. Clippers sweep the month of December, beat Jazz for 17th straight win

    Dec 31, 2012, 1:59 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    They say you make your own luck, but in the month of December, the Clippers have had little need to manufacture much of it. They’ve blown out most of their opponents, coasting to victory easily and often sitting their starters the entire fourth quarter. For a franchise that many thought was legitimately cursed once upon…

  19. NBA issues flopping warnings to Royal Ivey, Gustavo Ayon and Tony Parker

    Dec 30, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Tony Parker, flop

    Tony Parker? Flop? Well, I never! The NBA has officially warned Parker, Royal Ivey and Gustavo Ayon today for violating the anti-flopping policy established this season. While this is solely a warning for all three players, if they’re accused of violating the policy again, they will be subject to a $5,000 dollar fine. Parker’s flop…

  20. Jarrett Jack isn’t exactly buying that playing with Chris Paul helped him

    Dec 30, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Jarrett Jack, Jrue Holiday

    Golden State Warriors point guard Jarrett Jack and Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul have a long-standing friendship. The two floor generals have known each other since they were teenagers on the AAU scene, and that carried over into a friendly ACC rivalry at Georgia Tech (Jack) and Wake Forest (Paul). When Jack was traded…

  21. Video: Eric Gordon returns to Hornets, scores 24 in win

    Dec 30, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    It’s going to take more than one game to make the fans of the New Orleans Hornets forgive Eric Gordon for signing an offer sheet with Phoenix last summer and saying publicly that is where he wanted to play, which combined with his injuries made it seem like he wanted out of New Orleans. But…

  22. Chris Paul puts Gordon Hayward on skates (GIF)

    Dec 29, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    The Clippers were down 19 to the Utah Jazz about halfway through the third period, and the 15-game winning streak looked like it was finally coming to a close. Utah was getting easy buckets inside, and the Clippers offense had turned to mush. But what do you know? Chris Paul suddenly snapped into attack mode,…

  23. Hornets guard Eric Gordon activated and expected to make debut

    Dec 29, 2012, 6:06 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    After playing in just nine games last season and zero so far this year, Eric Gordon is finally set to return tonight against the Charlotte Bobcats. It’s been so long that it’s easy to forget just how good Gordon was with the Clippers two seasons ago. The stocky shooting guard averaged 22 points a game…

  24. Want to know if the Clippers are for real? Ask the Celtics (who lost to them by 29)

    Dec 28, 2012, 3:11 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Jared Sullinger

    I’ve done some sports talk radio spots the last few days around the nation and this still seems to be the question on a lot of sports fans lips: Are the Clippers really that good? Like title contender good? Why don’t you go ask Doc Rivers or the Celtics? Or Rajon Rondo? Or Paul Pierce?…

  25. No changes atop latest All-Star voting, but Lin and Bosh could sneak in

    Dec 27, 2012, 2:54 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    NBA fans around the globe love Kobe Bryant. Stunning, I know. The latest update on the NBA All-Star voting is out and there are no changes among the starters for either conference — but it’s starting to get close for a few guys. What is different is that Kobe moved past LeBron James as the…
