Los Angeles Clippers

  1. Rio Grande Valley Vipers sign former Duke guard Jon Scheyer

    Feb 18, 2011, 3:43 PM EDT

    Jon Scheyer

    Jon Scheyer was never a surefire NBA player to begin with, a point made crystal clear when he went undrafted last summer. That said, Scheyer still seemed like an interesting prospect, even if he’s fairly limited in terms of athleticism. As a tall combo guard who can initiate offense and his outside shots consistently, Scheyer…

  2. Blake Griffin becomes the NBA’s reluctant new celebrity

    Feb 17, 2011, 3:35 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    Blake Griffin wants to be just a regular guy. Not on the court — there he is fully at home on the stage. There he wants to win. He wants to destroy you. And dunk on you ferociously. But when your dunks electrify stadiums and bring life to a dormant franchise, when you have the…

  3. Chris Kaman set to return tonight

    Feb 16, 2011, 5:49 PM EDT

    Chris Kaman

    You may have forgotten, but the Clippers have had a starting-level center in their back pocket all along. Chris Kaman has played just eight games this season for Los Angeles, but the once quasi-All-Star is apparently ready for his first NBA action since December 5th. Here’s what Kaman had to say on Twitter: I will…

  4. PBT Wednesday morning one liners

    Feb 16, 2011, 9:35 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Is talking about sports better than watching it? Is Blake Griffin more watchable than LeBron James? Things I never thought I’d type: The Clippers have become a huge road draw. See the paragraph above for your reason. Kevin Love had his 50th double-double of the season Monday night. The only other man with 50 before…

  5. You’ll never believe it, but Blake Griffin had a monster dunk

    Feb 14, 2011, 8:20 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    Is there a better way to start off your week than with a Blake Griffin dunk? Well, sure there is, but we’re not that kind of site. Best part of this all-oop from Sunday against the Raptors, watch Baron with the behind-the-back dribble for no particular reason. Which is very Baron. Of late he has…

  6. Cavs Win! Cavs Win! Cavs Win! (It still counts against the Clippers)

    Feb 12, 2011, 12:00 AM EDT

    Antawn Jamison

    There is something historically appropriate that the Cavaliers ended their losing streak against the Clippers. Cleveland’s oddly fascinating losing streak ended dramatically at 26 with a 126-119 overtime win at home on Friday night. It seemed a fitting way to go — the Cavs had been giving the effort (mostly) for weeks, but had not…

  7. Byron Scott rips his team, effort after loss 26 in a row

    Feb 10, 2011, 11:57 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    In the games leading up to the Cavaliers record in futility — 25 consecutive losses in a row — there were a lot of things you could pick apart about the Cavs: The lack of guys who can create their own shot, the lack of rebounding, the poor execution, the non-existent interior defense, and so…

  8. 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…

  9. NBA players flexible when it comes to yoga

    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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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.…
