Los Angeles Clippers

  1. Chris Paul’s son apparently not convinced Dad can dunk

    Dec 20, 2012, 2:29 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    There is the video proof. I think we all knew Chris Paul could dunk, he’s plenty athletic, but he’s the below-the-rim guy on the high-flying Clippers. But CP3 threw a quality two hander down against the Hornets on Wednesday night and after the game he tried to get a respect from his son (who is…

  2. Video: Is New York “Lob City?” Sure looks like it lately.

    Dec 20, 2012, 10:59 AM EDT

    Tyson Chandler, Gerald Wallace

    The Clippers — with Chris Paul‘s impeccably-timed passes to Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan — has been Lob City ever since Griffin said that when he found out CP3 was coming to Los Angeles. But no combo has connected on more alley-oop dunks this season than Raymond Felton and Tyson Chandler of the Knicks. That…

  3. Eric Gordon to rejoin Hornets Saturday, start workouts to return this month

    Dec 20, 2012, 10:28 AM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    Eric Gordon is about to be back with the Hornets. That’s when the work begins. First the work of practices and conditioning to get back on the court following the months of rehab to get his right knee healthy. Then there is the work of winning back a fan base that is ticked at him.…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: That Kevin Durant guy is pretty good

    Dec 20, 2012, 8:29 AM EDT

    Thunder forward Durant reacts after a three point shot against the Atlanta Hawks in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while being more than willing to do your part to fight breast cancer…. Knicks 100, Nets 86: Battle of New York? Not really. The Knick are an elite team that got Carmelo Anthony back and he dropped 31 (that makes it…

  5. Kings players want Isaiah Thomas to start; don’t know what they’re running on offense

    Dec 19, 2012, 10:17 PM EDT

    Isaiah DeMarcus

    If you’ve caught yourself watching a Sacramento Kings game lately and thought to yourself, ‘this can’t get any worse’ only to see it get much, much worse – you’re not the only one. As it turns out, the Kings players themselves are having a real hard time understanding the train wreck they’re a part of…

  6. Highlights from Kyrie Irving’s career-high 41 against the Knicks through NBA’s Phantom Cam (VIDEO)

    Dec 19, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers' Irving brings the ball up court against New York Knicks during their NBA basketball game in New York

    Kyrie Irving put on a show at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, pouring in a career-high 41 points as the Cavaliers gave the Knicks fits for most of the night, before ultimately falling 103-102. Irving was forced to wear a mask during the game due to a broken bone in his jaw, which made the…

  7. Video: Gerald Henderson dunks spectacularly on Dwight Howard

    Dec 19, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Los Angeles Lakers

    Damn. That dunk had the Staples Center crowd buzzing when it was replayed — and he just did that over their new hero. Gerald Henderson cut down the lane and showed no fear going up over Dwight Howard with authority and dunking on the Lakers big man. Granted, Howard didn’t jump to defend it, but…

  8. Report: Celtics want another big, may offer Lee to get it

    Dec 18, 2012, 8:44 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics guard Courtney Lee drives to the basket past Brooklyn Nets forward Reggie Evans in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Boston

    Things are not right in Boston — this was a veteran team that was expected to break out of the pack in the East and be the team that would challenge Miami for conference supremacy. Instead the Knicks have broken out of the pack while the Celtics have floated around .500 (12-11) and they are…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Serge Ibaka is to be feared as Thunder beat Spurs

    Dec 18, 2012, 3:05 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Ibaka plays against San Antonio Spurs during their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while thinking “if you’re going to play Santa make sure you fit down the chimney”…. Rockets 109, Knicks 96: Jeremy Lin was back in New York and he doesn’t just play well at Madison Square Garden when Carmelo Anthony is out,…

  10. Video: Blake Griffin put on an exhibition in Motown

    Dec 18, 2012, 12:43 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Blake Griffin and the Clippers still can put on a show and he did it in Detroit Monday. First, there was the end-to-end block at one end alley-oop at the other. He is unbelievable. Second is the highlight of the night — Matt Barnes with the off-the-backboard pass to Griffin for the tomahawk dunk. Not…

  11. Monday And-1 Links: Should the Rockets send Jeremy Lin to the bench?

    Dec 17, 2012, 7:29 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    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. • Should the Houston rockets bring Jeremy Lin off the bench? What has been…

  12. NBA Power Rankings: Right now, Clippers are second best in West

    Dec 17, 2012, 2:35 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin and Chris Paul run off the bench to celebrate a basket against the Toronto Raptors during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    What we see in December is not always a great predictor of what we see in the playoffs, but the Clippers look very good lately. Better than their more talked about roommate in Los Angeles. 1. Thunder (19-4, Last week ranked No. 1). They are the winners of 10 in a row. I still think…

  13. Jeremy Lin returns to Madison Square Garden Monday, without “Linsanity”

    Dec 17, 2012, 11:54 AM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    Jeremy Lin is back in the place it all came together for him. But it’s not the same. Monday night Jeremy Lin brings his new team the Houston Rockets into Madison Square Garden to take on the team where for a stretch he played stunningly good, exciting basketball that energized a sullen fan base. It…

  14. The biggest advantage in basketball

    Dec 13, 2012, 7:05 PM EDT

    Chris Paul,  Eric Bledsoe

    A quarter of the way through the season, which team do you think possesses the greatest positional advantage in basketball? Is it the Heat with LeBron overwhelming every 3 in the league? The Thunder with Durant at the 3 and the 4? Carmelo thriving at power forward with the Knicks? Kobe beating up on the…

  15. While you weren’t looking, Golden State got really good

    Dec 13, 2012, 4:21 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Miami Heat

    They are 15-7, on a five-game winning streak all on the road with a signature win now in Miami. Their shooters and offense starting to find a groove while they dominate the glass. They are a team to watch in the Pacific because they are just going to get better. The Lakers wish we were…

  16. Nothing shocking here: Kobe, LeBron lead All-Star ballot early returns

    Dec 13, 2012, 2:32 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    We don’t exactly need Nate Silver to break down these voting returns and trends — the players in the lead early in the NBA All-Star balloting almost always stay on top. Occasionally guys close small gaps, but generally what you see now is what you get. In which case — good job public. No glaring…

  17. Video: Chris Paul with double behind his back crossover

    Dec 13, 2012, 10:17 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is very, very good. The Clippers have won eight in a row and while CP3 doesn’t put up gaudy numbers that get him in the MVP conversation, he could. He chooses to worry about winning, about leading a team, about controlling the flow not just getting his own. But if you ever doubted…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Pierce, Rondo lead Celtics to win

    Dec 13, 2012, 6:57 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching the Sandy relief concert and thinking the Who looked really old… Celtics 117, Mavericks 115 (2OT): This game was fun. It entertained. Oh, no it wasn’t pretty at all — Dallas had 27 turnovers — but it had its…

  19. Terrell Owens asked for a 10-day contract with Clippers

    Dec 12, 2012, 2:59 PM EDT

    Premiere Of  Summit Entertainment's "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" - Arrivals

    Terrell Owens can’t get an NFL contract right now (39-year-old receivers rarely do), so he’s looking at some other career options. Like the NBA. Maybe not officially, but he’s been around the Clippers and their workout facility. Blake Griffin was talking about him on the Dan Patrick Show (which you can see on the NBC Sports…

  20. Video: Clippers with four huge dunks in two minutes on Bulls

    Dec 12, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Joakim Noah, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin

    You’ll have to forgive the Clippers announcers hyperbole through this (or you can just turn the sound down — they shouldn’t be comparing Blake Griffin to Michael Jordan inside the United Center), but this was still must see video. The Clippers are still lob city, they still put on an arial show night after night.…

  21. Three Stars of the Night: Big nights for Kobe, Carmelo

    Dec 12, 2012, 2:29 AM EDT

    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony reacts after he scored past Brooklyn Nets Joe Johnson and Gerald Wallace in NBA game in New York

    This was one of those nights when a number of guys could have made the three-stars list — Blake Griffin had 22 points and 10 rebounds; Carlos Boozer had 24 points and 13 rebounds; Ty Lawson with an impressive 26 points; and there were others in consideration. Even Andray Blatche. But in the end, these…

  22. Video: Clippers players talk about how they like Del Negro

    Dec 11, 2012, 7:12 PM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro

    When I put together a list of coaches who could be on the hot seat I added Vinny Del Negro because it was obligatory. Fans saw him in Chicago, they heard the now-gone GM wanted him out the middle of last season and there is a national sense he can’t be the guy that coaches…

  23. Who is next NBA coach to be fired? Watch your back, Dwane Casey

    Dec 11, 2012, 4:13 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Los Angeles Clippers

    We’ve had one coach canned in the first quarter of the NBA season, and just as we expected it was Mike Brown from the Lakers. Which is why it is ironic to listen to Lakers brass and supporters say it’s too early to judge Mike D’Antoni because so many players are injured and they haven’t…

  24. Suns coach Gentry gets vote of confidence; report has Beasley as issue

    Dec 11, 2012, 10:25 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    When the Phoenix Suns traded Steve Nash, let Grant Hill go and brought in Michael Beasley to be the designated scorer, you knew things were not going to go all that well in the Valley of the Sun this year. But Suns fans weren’t ready for a 7-15 record with seven straight losses, and everyone…

  25. NBA Power Rankings: Oh-oh Thunder road, oh Thunder road

    Dec 10, 2012, 2:43 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    A lot of the preseason talk in the West focused on the Lakers… and it still does. And too often it ends with “and the Thunder are still contenders, too.” No, the Thunder are the defending Western Conference champs, the team to beat in that conference and they look pretty good right now. Thank you…
