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.
The Los Angeles Clippers announced today that Blake Griffin will be suspended four games without pay, and fined an additional game check, for punching team equipment staffer Matias Testi.
We haven’t seen much of Blake Griffin since he broke his hand punching out his friend and Clippers equipment manager Matias Testi. But thanks to TMZ, you can now have a decent look at Griffin’s broken right hand:
It’s time again for us to make fun of the Clippers’ J.J. Redick, who today blew a bunny during L.A.’s home matchup with the Bulls. We imagine you’ll enjoy this, simply that even nine years into his pro career Redick is still the most hated player in college basketball.
Holy crap. Did anyone know Lance Stephenson could do this? He just chokeslammed the Lakers back to whatever slop bucket they were dredged up from. Once again, the Lakers have proven themselves a valuable source for highlight reel raw materials.
The NBA is investigating the incident the Jan. 23 incident in which Clippers forward Blake Griffin punched assistant equipment manager Matias Testi, breaking his own hand. And as part of that investigation, they’re speaking to the other two men who were at the dinner table, C DeAndre Jordan and assistant athletic…
Blake Griffin, who was already recovering from a quadriceps injury, will be out for approximately four to six weeks with a broken hand after fighting with a Clippers staffer at a restaurant in Toronto earlier this week. According to USA Today’s Sam Amick, the other person involved in the fight is assistant equipment…
Clippers forward Blake Griffin has missed the last 15 games with a partially torn quadriceps, but he was expected to make his return to the floor as early as tonight in Indiana. That all went out the window last night, though, when ESPN’s Marc Stein and Ramona Shelburne reported that Griffin flew back to L.A. after…
Depth was a problem that the Los Angeles Clippers aimed to fix last offseason, particularly with the signings of Josh Smith and Lance Stephenson. Both have been disasters this season, and now Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Clips are sending Smith back to the Houston Rockets in exchange for what is…
Blazers shooting guard C.J. McCollum, who is scoring 21 points per game and having a fine year all around, was not on the active roster for last night’s game against the Clippers. McCollum wasn’t in street clothes because he was hurt or serving a suspension, but because his coach screwed up the lineup card.
Kevin Durant hit a tough jumper over Luc Mbah a Moute with 5.8 seconds left to help the Thunder top the Clippers, 100-99. And just for good measure, he blocked Chris Paul’s attempted game-winner too.
Last week, we showed you a funny little Dwight Howard lowlight reel. It was some deserved shade, but last night he led the Rockets in a rare victory over the Clippers, and more importantly, embarrassed Austin Rivers then jammed it on the other end:
We learned last night that the Clippers have a bit: the last player back to the locker room after the final buzzer has to dance for the rest of the team. How did we learn it? The game’s two heroes, forced to remain on the court for interviews, took off sprinting first chance they could.
Clippers center DeAndre Jordan made a bit of NBA history last night, tying the record for most missed free throws in a game. While getting maimed by the Trail Blazers’ hack-a-Jordan strategy, Jordan bricked 22 freebies.
It’s not often we see a coach being held back by his team from going after an opposing player, but things got chippy in the fourth quarter of the Clippers’ 111-94 win in Denver. The scuffle—limited to a verbal one—was sparked by Griffin’s displeasure with the Nuggets’ “Hack-A-DJ” strategy, and damned if intentionally…
Midway through the third quarter, Blake Griffin was set up outside the three-point line, but couldn’t repress his alley-oop instincts enough to shoot this here shot while earthbound.
The ever-combustible Clippers up and combusted today. This afternoon, they dropped their third straight game (and their sixth of seven) to the Toronto Raptors. 6-7 is good for the worst start of the Chris Paul era. Given the cocktail of stubborn personalities in that locker room, it’s thoroughly unsurprising that this…
