When Doc Rivers and the Los Angeles Clippers traded for Austin Rivers in 2015, he became the first son to play for his father in the NBA. The natural assumption was that Doc favoring his child, but when asked about playing for his father, Austin said that his bond with Doc isn’t as close as people think—it’s purely…
The Clippers are currently tied at two in their series against the Trail Blazers, but the rest of those games are going to be tough. Chris Paul and Blake Griffin won’t play in any of them.
Hours after Stephen Curry was officially diagnosed with a sprained MCL, the Clippers’ Chris Paul left the game and has reportedly been diagnosed with a broken hand. As you can see, he bent it while guarding the Blazers’ Gerald Henderson.
Adam Silver says watching DeAndre Jordan shoot free throws isn’t “entertaining.” He’s usually right, but when he’s airballing back-to-back charity stripe attempts, it carries its own special charm.
Clippers star DeAndre Jordan makes less than half his free throw attempts, and has almost singlehandedly prompted future NBA rule changes. Here’s his attempt early in tonight’s Blazers-Clips contest. It’s really something to behold.
The Los Angeles Lakers only have four games left to play, which means we are nearly out of chances to watch old man Kobe Bryant creak his way through some extremely funny and embarrassing possessions. He gave us one last night, though, so let’s hold onto it. It could be the last one we ever see:
It’s almost time for the NBA playoffs, otherwise known as the time of year when non-Clippers fans are reminded that Austin Rivers still, somehow, plays 20 minutes a game. Based on this play from last night’s Clippers-Spurs game, Rivers is ready to do his thing on the big stage.
While Jamal Crawford was shooting free throws during Tuesday night’s game against the Spurs, the NBA TV mics picked up a high-pitched Spurs fan attempting to heckle his teammate J.J. Redick:
Los Angeles Clippers rookie Branden Dawson was arrested around 8:30 Pacific Time this morning in Playa Vista, Ca. and charged with felony domestic violence, per a report from TMZ Sports. The former Michigan State star was released from LAPD custody after posting his $50,000 bail a few hours later, according to ESPN.
This will sound deeply strange, but: the Thunder are in survival mode. With the West shaking out the way it has, even a team as good as OKC has no shot at catching Golden State or San Antonio—they’re now 9.5 games back of the Spurs with 21 games left to play. All the Thunder functionally have left to play for is to …
The Los Angeles Clippers unveiled a new mascot during halftime of their game against the Nets, and for some reason they went with a condor that looks suspiciously like a toucan. Vince Staples, your thoughts?
Boogie Cousins and Chris Paul are probably the two most easily riled up dudes in the Pacific Division, so even though they don’t play the same position, it makes sense that they could very well find themselves beefing. They’re pretty good foils for each other, all told: both guys play with an unveiled intensity, and…
The Spurs lost to the Clippers last night in L.A., 105-86. In typically passive-aggressive Spurs fashion they managed to deflate the game before it happened, holding out Kawhi Leonard with “calf tightness,” so who the hell knows what the result means. Probably nothing. That probably does not make Danny Green feel much…
Clippers star Blake Griffin spoke to the media today for the first time since he broke his hand punching friend and Clippers’ equipment staffer Matias Testi in the face, and apologized profusely for it.
Here’s a moment from last night’s game between the Clippers and Celtics, in which Clips point guard Chris Paul invents a great way to short-circuit the Cetlics’ attempt to deploy everyone’s least-favorite NBA strategy:
The Clippers played in Boston last night, possibly marking former Celtics great Paul Pierce’s last chance to play in front of his old fans. Pierce received a warm welcome from the crowed when he was introduced, and then participated in a very strange skit with his teammates.
