Los Angeles Clippers

  1. Chris Paul may have had the flop of the year (VIDEO)

    Mar 20, 2013, 10:58 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    I know the video quality is not great, but that video does a great job of getting you to see what is my new favorite flop of the year. Chris Paul kind of makes contact with DeMarcus Cousins on Tuesday night then tries to sell a flop with some Keanu Reeves doing Shakespeare bad acting. Whoa.…

  2. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Clippers lose, fall to fourth

    Mar 20, 2013, 7:59 AM EDT

    Isaiah Thomas, Chris Paul

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while rethinking everything you knew about Star Wars…. Nuggets 114, Thunder 104: Denver won their 13th game in a row and in doing so made a statement that come the playoffs they are not to be dismissed. The Thunder went cold for the…

  3. Three Stars of the Night: Fourth quarter heroes edition

    Mar 20, 2013, 2:31 AM EDT

    Toney Douglas, Chris Paul

    There were people who put up bigger numbers on each of their teams, but these three players had the big fourth quarters that got their teams the win Tuesday night. So yes, that means guys like Kevin Durant with big lines (34 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists) miss the cut. That’s life. Third Star: Monta…

  4. Chris Paul with the spin move, behind-the-back, half-court alley-oop pass (VIDEO)

    Mar 20, 2013, 1:38 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Isaiah Thomas

    The Clippers are a nightly highlight show. And Chris Paul is the ringmaster — he knows how to set up the show, keep it moving, and entertain the crowd by himself when he needs to. And against the Kings Tuesday he did a little of that — he made a beautiful move at halfcourt that…

  5. Cuban thinks Nowitzki can be elite three more years. Dirk not so sure.

    Mar 19, 2013, 4:24 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Mike Scott

    It took a while after he recovered from knee surgery during training camp, but Dirk Nowizki is back to being his old self. In his last five games he’s averaged 19.6 points per game on 50.7 percent shooting and 52.6 percent from three. He’s pulling down 9.2 boards a game, too. Basically, All-Star numbers. So…

  6. JaVale McGee with huge throwdown dunk over Noah (VIDEO)

    Mar 19, 2013, 10:16 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    JaVale McGee can throw down with the best of him (he probably should have beat Blake Griffin in the dunk contest a few years back, I will take his dunk on two baskets over the car dunk every time). Which brings us to this dunk by McGee on Monday night that is just monster. They…

  7. Monday And-1 Links: Paternity suit against Michael Jordan dropped

    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 I love a good Guinness…. • We told you when it happened, to…

  8. Kenyon Martin says Clippers “can’t do it in the playoffs”

    Mar 18, 2013, 10:56 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The Los Angeles Clippers last four losses are to the Spurs, Thunder, Nuggets and Grizzlies. The teams they will have to beat in the playoffs. It doesn’t exactly inspire confidence. In the first months of this season the Clippers looked like a title contender, right now that is simply not the case. Their defense in…

  9. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Clippers dust off what’s left of the Knicks

    Mar 18, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Clippers center Jordan dunks the ball uncontested against the Knicks during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while making the case for the 68th team, the one left out of the NCAA Tournament, because they really had a shot to win it all…. Heat 108, Raptors 91: The Heat tied the second longest winning streak in NBA history with this…

  10. Blake Griffin finishes monster one-handed alley-oop in Clippers’ win over Knicks

    Mar 17, 2013, 10:15 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    We showed you DeAndre Jordan getting loose for a windmill jam on a fast break early in the Clippers’ win over the Knicks, and as it turned out, that was only the beginning of the highlight show. Blake Griffin got his share of dunks along the way, none more exciting than this one-handed throwdowm off…

  11. Larry Sanders fined $50K for using ‘a derogatory and offensive term’ and publicly criticizing officials

    Mar 17, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Larry Sanders

    Larry Sanders of the Milwaukee Bucks has been fined $50,000 for “using a derogatory and offensive term and publicly criticizing the officials,” the league announced on Sunday via official release. The incident occurred with 2:44 remaining the Bucks’ home loss to the Heat on Friday, when Sanders directed the language to the referees and was…

  12. DeAndre Jordan throws down the windmill jam against the Knicks (VIDEO)

    Mar 17, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Ersan Ilyasova

    DeAndre Jordan got loose on the fast break early in the Clippers’ contest against the Knicks, and made sure to finish with some style by throwing down the thunderous windmill jam. This wasn’t quite on the level of DeAndre’s destruction of Brandon Knight, but not bad for an early Sunday afternoon start.

  13. Clippers throw in towel on Trey Thompkins; sign DaJuan Summers

    Mar 15, 2013, 4:25 PM EDT

    Summers_DaJuan

    Trey Thompkins was a good second round gamble by the Clippers — a 6’10” forward out of Georgia with a world of potential as a guy who can play inside or out. Except he never lived up to that potential as a rookie (he only played in 24 games) then never saw the court this…

  14. Knicks to ink Kenyon Martin for rest of season Friday

    Mar 15, 2013, 11:38 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin, Jason Kidd

    Thursday night Kenyon Martin was a starter for the Knicks, playing better than 30 minutes and scoring 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting. Not bad for a guy on a 10-day tryout contract. That ends Friday — Martin’s second 10-day contract is up and the Knicks will make it official and sign him for the rest…

  15. Clippers know team they have been recently isn’t good enough

    Mar 15, 2013, 3:02 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    More and more it feels like they are just not there yet. The Clippers are 6-4 in their last 10, and as it has been with the Clippers the second half of the season you can’t say that is bad. They keep scoring points, they keep having highlights, they keep getting wins and having moments…

  16. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Denver fans savor blowout of Knicks

    Mar 14, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

    Ty Lawson, Tim Thomas, Chris Copeland

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were watching the papal seagull….. Heat 98, 76ers 94: There was a time this season when the Heat were coasting and this was the kind of game where they just didn’t bring any heart. But now they have something to play…

  18. Thursday’s hostile homecoming: Raymond Felton to Portland

    Mar 13, 2013, 4:14 PM EDT

    Raymond Felton

    While Carmelo Anthony is not going to be showered with rose petals and given boxes of chocolate Wednesday night when he returns to Denver, the venom for him there has tapered off with time. As Wednesday morning there were still tickets available — the game was not a sellout. But talk to people in Portland,…

  19. You can get DeAndre Jordan’s dunk face on a T-shirt

    Mar 13, 2013, 2:37 PM EDT

    Nice.-Image-via-Under-Armour

    DeAndre Jordan’s dunk over Brandon Knight was an instant YouTube sensation (that post is the most viewed on this site in the past week) and spawned a rash of memes (the Brandon Knight R.I.P. being the biggest if most misplaced). But maybe the best part of the video (after the dunk itself) was Jordan’s face…

  20. After everything else, Pistons had to take cold shower after loss to Jazz

    Mar 12, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    Brandon Knight, Andre Drummond

    I’m not sure what the Pistons players did in their past lives to deserve this karma, but it must have been something. Not only have they lost six in a row, not only is star rookie Andre Drummond still out, not only did Brandon Knight get dunked on then sprained his ankle and will be…

  21. Brandon Knight’s week gets worse, leaves game against Jazz with ankle sprain

    Mar 11, 2013, 10:03 PM EDT

    Brandon Knight, Tyson Chandler, Jason Kidd

    Brandon Knight seems like a nice enough guy, but perhaps that wasn’t the case in a previous life. It’s been a rough season for Knight, with Sunday night’s obliteration at the hands of DeAndre Jordan leading the list of events that haven’t exactly gone his way. Players will always take embarrassment over injury, however, so…

  22. Monday And-1 links: Should we be praising Brandon Knight for trying to make a play on DeAndre Jordan?

    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.

  23. Clippers’ Caron Butler out a week with elbow strain

    Mar 11, 2013, 5:46 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    Caron Butler is not a guy to oversell injuries. So when he was grabbing his left elbow Sunday night and went straight to the locker room, then when teammates seemed concerned after the game, there was reason for Clippers fans to be a little worried. X-rays on Sunday night were negative but the MRI was…

  24. NBA Power Rankings: After the Heat it gets interesting

    Mar 11, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers guard Stephenson is guarded by Heat forward Andersen and Battier during their NBA game at the American Airlines Arena in Miami

    Going to be an interesting week out West — Thunder and Spurs on Monday, while the Grizzlies play the Clippers and Nuggets this week. Those games don’t foreshadow playoff outcomes as much as hint at seedings — if Denver can get home court in the first round whoever has to face them is in trouble.…

  25. DeMarcus Cousins, your suspension is coming for elbowing Mike Dunleavy in head

    Mar 11, 2013, 12:59 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Scott Foster, Mike Dunleavy

    DeMarcus Cousins is going to get suspended for that. If there is one thing the Serge Ibaka nut shot on Blake Griffin made clear, it’s that the NBA league office takes prior offenses and any pattern of problems into account when dishing out punishments. This would be Cousins fourth suspension-worthy incident from the league this…
