  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dwight Howard makes Blake Griffin look like a rookie

    Feb 9, 2011, 2:48 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Dwight Howard

    What you missed while campaigning for former Fort Wayne, Ind., mayor Harry Baals to get a building named after him… Magic 101, Clippers 85: The last time these two met the Clippers struggled with the Magic’s defense, and that continued again. The Clippers do not get out in transition, take too much time to initiate…

  2. NBA players flexible when it comes to yoga

    Feb 8, 2011, 11:55 PM EDT

    Yoga Aid Challenge 2009 Takes Place Around Australia

    My wife (if I tried to go with a cute name like Mrs. BasketballTalk I’d be sleeping on the couch for a week, so we’ll stick with wife) has long said that there needs to be a class called “Yoga for dudes.” Men tend to turn away from the crunchy “be at one and breathe…

  3. Video: A rim’s ode to Blake Griffin

    Feb 7, 2011, 7:30 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin Dunk

    A rap about Blake Griffin, from the point of view of a terrified rim? Yep, it exists. Surprisingly good use of AutoTune? Check. Multiple references to Optimus Prime? Check. A pie to the face? Check. This is pretty much everything you could ask an NBA-related YouTube video to be, and it looks like it was…

  4. Spurs sign three-point specialist Steve Novak from D-League

    Feb 7, 2011, 3:13 PM EDT

    Steve Novak

    Well, that didn’t take long. We told you Friday former Maverick (and Clipper and Rocket) Steve Novak was headed to the D-League’s Reno Bighorns to try and play his way back into an NBA contract. Monday we learned that the San Antonio Spurs are about to pick up Novak, according to Jonathan Givony of Draft…

  5. Your Monday morning cup of coffee, er, Blake Griffin dunk

    Feb 7, 2011, 8:44 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin Dunk

    What’s a Monday morning without a Blake Griffin dunk? It’s like Boston without a Dunkin Donuts run, or New York without an H&H Bagels. We could go with a couple from the Miami Heat game. You should check out the big Windmill dunk. But the best was this put-back dunk. Nobody on the Heat puts…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: So that Dwyane Wade guy is pretty good

    Feb 7, 2011, 12:27 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    What you missed while watching the Black Eyed Peas reenact Tron (that is what they were doing, right?)… The Celtics beating the Magic was the game of the day (and we’re just now sure how good Orlando really is). Heat 97, Clippers 79: Both teams started this game out looking sloppy — poor shooting, lots…

  7. LeBron to refs: “I got a Super Bowl party to go to”

    Feb 6, 2011, 4:48 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    LeBron James is a man who likes a good party. And Super Bowl Sunday is really about parties — ones that start long before the game kicks off under a massive video screen. Which is why the Heat had a noon tip-off against the Clippers Sunday, so fans could come to the game and still…

  8. Blake Griffin shows Al Horford he could start for Steelers Sunday, loses game

    Feb 5, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    In a development that’s certain not to spark useless debates between people regarding the words “excessive,” “soft,” and “good hard fouls,” Blake Griffin fouled the ever loving mercy out of Al Horford on a last second game-winning drive attempt. Griffin went straight up, kind of, rose both arms to block the shot, made a play…

  9. Another day, another thunderous Blake Griffin dunk

    Feb 3, 2011, 8:45 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Clippers

    There is this buzz at Clippers games now — people know it is coming. At some point Blake Griffin is going to get behind the defense, the lob will go up higher than any human should be able to catch it and Griffin will get it and throw it down.  Every time he touches the…

  10. Clippers put Chris Kaman on the trade block

    Feb 1, 2011, 12:44 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Clippers

    Any team need a center with a .50 caliber rifle at home? Of course, who doesn’t? Last season, Chris Kaman was an All-Star. In truth that was due to injuries which forced the Clippers to run their offense through him. He was putting up a quality 18.5 points and 9 boards a game (even still…

  11. DeAndre Jordan was the Clippers best dunker Monday

    Feb 1, 2011, 11:03 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Corey Maggette

    Clippers games are a dunk fest. Usually because that Griffin guy is embarrassing someone (or just windmilling one home). But sometimes Eric Gordon (when healthy) and Baron Davis (who actually is healthy) sneak into the highlight reel. And some nights, DeAndre Jordan just takes it over. Jordan is the more overlooked of the freakish athletes…

  12. Andrew Bogut injures knee; X-rays negative but MRI next

    Feb 1, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

    andrew bogut

    It just seems like it has been one of those seasons for the Bucks. With just more than four minutes left in the Bucks loss to the Clippers Sunday, Andrew Bogut’s knee collided with Randy Foye, who was diving after a loose ball. The result being Bogut had to limp off court and leave the…

  13. Time for your Monday Blake Griffin highlight package

    Jan 31, 2011, 9:12 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Mondays suck. Not much we can do about that, sorry. But to help get you through the day we present a trio of Blake Griffin highlights from the Clippers game against the Charlotte Bobcats over the weekend. That and some strong coffee will make Monday feel a little less sucky. While the three-quarter court ally-oop…

  14. Blake Griffin and the greatest missed dunk ever

    Jan 30, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    We’ve seen a lot of great highlights from Blake Griffin. But last night we dodged a bullet. Had Blake Griffin nailed this one, it would have been devastating to the game of basketball. Every dunk from then after would have been a disappointment. No alley-oop would ever match it. We’d just be going through the…

  15. Dunk of the Night: Tyson Chandler throws it down. Yes, Tyson Chandler.

    Jan 26, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Tyson Chandler

    On a night when Blake Griffin plays, Tyson Chandler has the best dunk of the night?. I’ll have to double-check Revelations, but I’m pretty sure that’s one of the signs of the end times. Griffin did have a nice dunk, but nothing quite like Chandler, who clearly won this dunk contest. The guy most credited…

  16. Blake Griffin is fine. Stop worrying. It’s just a bruise.

    Jan 26, 2011, 10:40 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    If it weren’t for that whole “missing last season” thing, we’d have put a red cape on the back of Blake Griffin and be constructing a myth of invincibility around the man right now. I mean, we’ve seen him fly, so we can assume bullets bounce right off him, right? Dallas’ Brendan Haywood put that…

  17. Clippers Eric Gordon out about three weeks with wrist injury

    Jan 25, 2011, 8:42 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon, Solomon Jones, Brandon Rush

    Eric Gordon, the less flashy but equally important to Blake Griffin part of the Clippers rise in the past month, will be out for abut three weeks due to a wrist injury including a chipped bone, according to Art Garcia at NBA.com. He could be out only a couple weeks, but somewhere around the All-Star…

  18. You’ll never believe it, but Blake Griffin had a big dunk

    Jan 23, 2011, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Once upon a time, there was a man. Okay, I don’t think that’s verifiable at this point.  All of our evidence seems to suggest he’s somehow more than a man. Some sort of part-man, part-robot, part-beast combination. A man-beast-bot. Anyway, he did something insane that involved jumping again last night. Observe. That’s a tasty meatball.…

  19. Blake Griffin rookie card auctioning for $14,999

    Jan 21, 2011, 12:02 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Clippers

    You were just thinking: Should I buy a new car or a Blake Griffin rookie card? We know you were. Because it turns out they are about the same price, as The Rookie Wall reports. Panini, who manufactures the trading cards for the NBA, blogged about the rising value of Blake’s rookie cards. The National…

  20. Knicks may get ‘Melo, but don’t expect it via free agency

    Jan 20, 2011, 1:55 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    There are a lot of questions and a lot of rumors flying around about what happens with Carmelo Anthony now that the Nets have pulled out of the running. One of the theories: Anthony will play out his contract, opt out next summer and come to the Knicks as a free agent. Not going to…

  21. Clipper GM: Blake Griffin will forever be a Clipper

    Jan 20, 2011, 11:26 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Clippers

    We all keep doing it. We watch the Clippers do something like dismantle Minnesota Wednesday night, we see them beat the Lakers and Heat, we look at their franchise player in Blake Griffin, their young core of talented players, and we ask… How are the Clippers going to screw this up? The Clippers GM told…

  22. The other Clipper keys: DeAndre Jordan and Baron Davis

    Jan 19, 2011, 9:58 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Blake Griffin is a walking highlight factory. And not just for his dunks anymore, people are figuring out he can play the game. Eric Gordon has become the outside to Griffin’s inside for the Clippers. He’s the guy knocking down key threes — just like he did for Team USA when they were winning the…

  23. If you push Blake Griffin, the Clippers are pushing back

    Jan 18, 2011, 5:42 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Opposing teams have been trying to knock Blake Griffin off his game. Literally. As Griffin has emerged as an NBA star and powerhouse offensive force, other teams have started to combat his physical presence with some physical play of their own. Teams have been trying to push Griffin around. The Clippers noticed and as a…

  24. Quote of the day: Ron Artest loves him some In-N-Out burgers

    Jan 18, 2011, 9:03 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    “I could’ve bought 10,000 In-N-Out Burgers. I rather would’ve done that than give it away. I’m going to get 10 burgers [after Monday's game]. I love In-N-Out. It’s addicting. It’s the only reason I’m here in L.A. If it wasn’t for In-N-Out Burger, I probably would’ve gone to Memphis or something.” —Ron Artest‘s reaction to…

  25. Blake Griffin puts up 47, NBA one-game high for season. He’s more than dunks.

    Jan 17, 2011, 11:46 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Tyler Hansbrough

    Blake Griffin is a basketball stud. I don’t mean in the highlight dunk kind of way… well, yes I do. That too. He has more dunks than anyone in the league by a long shot. But in the “this guy can flat out ball” kind of way. He dropped 47 on the Indiana Pacers Monday…
