    granger clippers inactive

    Danny Granger was set to make his debut for the Clippers on Saturday, after signing with L.A. following a trade from the Pacers and a buyout from the Sixers. But a mistake by Doc Rivers when submitting his lineup inadvertently left Granger off of the game’s active roster. From the Associated Press (via Basketball Insiders):…

  2. It’s official: Danny Granger is a member of the Los Angeles Clippers

    Feb 28, 2014, 6:31 PM EDT

    Portland Trailblazers v Indiana Pacers

    Doc Rivers realized earlier this season that this Clippers roster was not going to be enough to contend in the West. Now during buyout season he’s gone and added some talent. Glen Davis as the third big will be the most important addition — he’s solid and that makes him a massive upgrade over Ryan…

  3. Reports: Danny Granger will sign with Clippers when he clears waivers Friday

    Feb 28, 2014, 1:27 AM EDT

    Danny Granger

    Doc Rivers has been looking for some help at the three — Jared Dudley has not panned out as hoped and Matt Barnes is solid as a reserve but not the guy who starts on a contender. Rivers even tried Hedo Turkoglu in that role. Now Danny Granger is going to get a chance. Granger,…

  4. It’s official: Sixers reach buyout with Danny Granger; Clippers frontrunners to land him

    Feb 26, 2014, 5:27 PM EDT

    Danny Granger

    Danny Granger is going to get his chance to play for a contender — and his next contract. Which it looks like he will do as a member of the Los Angeles Clippers. While this has been expected for days it has become official: The Philadelphia 76ers have reached a buyout agreement with Granger, ,…

    Kevin Durant

    Kevin Durant turned in a spectacular performance against the Clippers on Sunday, finishing with 42 points and 10 assists in a game his Thunder lost. This was one of KD’s better highlights of the afternoon, a spin move just past mid-court, followed by a drive to the basket and a finger roll finish through the…

    Feb 21, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Six

    It’s not uncommon for NBA players to find out they’ve been traded under somewhat unusual circumstances; we’ve heard of players waking up from naps to discover they’ve been dealt, or even finding out from a teammate once a flight had landed. But the Clippers created an extremely uncomfortable situation for their players on Thursday that…

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

  8. Report: Thunder had interest in trading for Iman Shumpert

    Feb 20, 2014, 1:39 PM EDT

    Iman Shumpert

    There was progress made on talks Wednesday between the Knicks and the Clippers that centered around a trade involving Iman Shumpert. It would have been a disaster for the Knicks, who would have received Darren Collison (who isn’t good) and Matt Barnes or Reggie Bullock in exchange for Shumpert and Raymond Felton. Discussions eventually faded,…

  9. Report: Knicks may be closer to dealing Iman Shumpert to Clippers, talking smaller trade with Nuggets

    Feb 19, 2014, 8:06 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks - Game Two

    A report earlier on Wednesday had the Knicks engaged in trade talks with the Clippers that would send Iman Shumpert and Raymond Felton to Los Angeles in exchange for Darren Collison and Reggie Bullock. Despite getting out from under Felton’s contract, which is essentially for two more seasons beyond this one considering his player option…

  10. Clippers’ J.J. Redick out indefinitely with bulging disc in back, other injuries

    Feb 18, 2014, 9:08 PM EDT

    J.J. Redick

    UPDATE: 9:08 pm: The Clippers have made it official, saying J.J. Redick is out “indefinitely with a bulging disc in his lower back.” While he certainly has a variety of injuries, it is the back that is the most serious. They still expect to have him back for the playoffs. 7:45 pm: This is pretty…

  11. The Extra Pass: Central heat, plus Monday’s recaps

    Mike Brown

    No NBA head coach has been fired yet this season. Of course, “yet” is the key word there. Given the performances and the high expectations of a few teams in the Eastern Conference’s Central Division, that could be changing soon. Here’s a look at the tenuous positions of three coaches from that division, in order…

  12. Denver’s Randy Foye hits ridiculous leaning game-winning three (VIDEO)

    Feb 4, 2014, 2:28 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Denver Nuggets

    Just seconds before the Clippers’ Matt Barnes had drained a three off a pass and a nice bit of improvisation from J.J. Redick. The Clippers had a two-point lead and looked like they were going to escape Mile High with a win. Then Randy Foye happened. Whatever Nuggets coach Brian Shaw drew up in the…

  13. The Extra Pass: A big test for the Clippers; plus Thursday’s recaps

    Dec 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Pressure reveals character, and the last minutes of the Clippers road matchup with Portland did just that. Down the stretch, both teams played perfectly to their strengths. The Blazers ran everything through LaMarcus Aldirdge (32 points) on the left block, surrounding him with three-point shooters and daring the Clippers to double. The Clippers, meanwhile, put the…

  14. Clippers Matt Barnes fined $25,000, not for foul to Love but for not leaving court

    Dec 23, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    We mentioned this when we brought you this ejection the first time — the foul didn’t seem that bad but if you’re ejected you can’t hang around and argue with the referees. The league frowns on this. And by “frowns” I mean “hates.” The Clippers’ Matt Barnes was fined $25,000 for the incident above from…

  15. Matt Barnes ejected for hard foul on Kevin Love (VIDEO)

    Dec 23, 2013, 1:55 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Clippers

    It’s some Bruin on Bruin crime. Kevin Love was having a monster night (he finished with 45 and 19) and the Clippers big men had no answer for him (or Nikola Pekovic) when this happened: Love got the ball at the three point line, pump faked and that just burned Ryan Hollins, so Love put…

  16. It’s official, Clippers agree to terms with Stephen Jackson

    Dec 9, 2013, 6:01 PM EDT

    stephen-jackson-spurs

    As we told you earlier was likely to happen, Stephen Jackson has agreed to terms with the Los Angeles Clippers. For one, Doc Rivers confirmed it to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times. Second, Jackson himself posted this on Instagram. The Clippers need some depth on the wing because J.J. Redick is out with…

  17. Report: Clippers close to adding Stephen Jackson to roster

    Dec 9, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Stephen Jackson

    J.J. Redick is out with a broken hand. Matt Barnes is out following surgery to repair a retinal tear in his left eye. Reggie Bullock is out with a sprained ankle. All this has left the Los Angeles Clippers short bodies on the wing, so they may bring in veteran Stephen Jackson to fill the…

  18. Thunder race out to early lead, get comfortable win over Clippers

    Nov 22, 2013, 1:17 AM EDT

    Reggie Jackson Thunder

    If you watched Thursday night’s Thunder win over the Clippers, and compared it to the first time these two teams met — at least up to the point in that first game when Serge Ibaka was ejected — you could come away saying that the Thunder are just flat out better than the Clippers. At…

  19. Clippers’ Matt Barnes to have surgery to repair retinal tear, out two weeks

    Nov 21, 2013, 9:14 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Six

    The Clippers need Matt Barnes off the bench — he’s about the only guy off the bench who could be considered a plus defender — but they are going to be without him for a couple weeks. Barnes is going to have surgery to repair a retinal tear in his left eye, the team announced…

  20. PBT Extra: When Kobe comes back what does he bring to Lakers?

    Nov 20, 2013, 7:11 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    It’s an all Los Angeles PBT Extra with Kay Adams and myself. Of course, that means Kobe Bryant talk. That starts with when he comes back but moves on to what he brings when he does get back — it’s going to be gradual, but the Lakers’ offense is so off (25th in the league…

    Nov 14, 2013, 6:03 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    No suspension for Matt Barnes, the league didn’t come down on him as hard as expected.

  23. Clippers’ Matt Barnes apologizes for ejection, twitter rant

    Nov 14, 2013, 4:09 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Six

    Matt Barnes has apologized. Wednesday night when the Thunder’s Serge Ibaka and the Clippers’ Blake Griffin got tangled up, Barnes rushed to Griffin’s defense and shoved Ibaka. The result was an ejection and you can bet a suspension from the league will follow (Ibaka was ejected as well, Griffin got a technical). That suspension for…

    Chances are at some point this season, you’ve heard about SportVU. For the uninitiated, SportVU is a player tracking software that utilizes cameras positioned around the court to collect all sorts of data.

    Nov 14, 2013, 2:45 AM EDT

    ibaka-blake griffin

    LOS ANGELES – The Thunder looked to be well on their way to a convincing win over the Clippers on Wednesday, following a strong first half that saw them dominating the game offensively, and doing so with relative ease. But the results of an entanglement between Serge Ibaka and Blake Griffin with 6.2 seconds remaining…
