The NBA Playoffs provides a unique landscape. After 82 games are played, eight teams from each conference are pitted against each other in the NBA’s version of The Hunger Games. At the front of this battle are the stars of each respective team. Some are coming into the playoffs with high expectations, while some are just happy to be here. Let’s put it this way, the Wizards and Bobcats are happy just to be in the playoffs whereas teams like the Pacers and Thunder won’t be satisfied without holding a trophy. Read More »

Blake Griffin’s Lob For The Dazzling DJ Dunk

Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan

It’s become commonplace to see Blake Griffin on the receiving end of a towering alley-oop slam any time the Clippers get out in transition. A lot less frequently, we see Griffin actually leading the fast-break and lobbing the alley-oop himself. In the case of Thursday night’s 109-103 win in Dallas, Griffin found DeAndre Jordan, and the results were pretty spectacular. Read More »

Chris Paul Lob Off The Glass To Blake Griffin

Blake Griffin

The Pelicans made the mistake of allowing the Clippers to get into the open court early in their Wednesday game against the Pacific Division leaders. After coming up with the loose ball, Chris Paul found himself with no traffic in front of him. Blake Griffin was the only one to follow in tow, and viewers knew they were about to witness a thrilling play between the duo. CP3 decided to throw a high lob off the backboard to Griffin, who powerfully crushed it through with both hands. Read More »

Who Dunks It Better: Blake Griffin Or Derrick Favors?

Derrick Favors, Blake Griffin

While the Clippers handled the Jazz in Salt Lake last night, following a dreadful first quarter that gave Utah an 11-point head start, Blake Griffin and Derrick Favors did their own version of the dunk contest. Griffin started things off with a putback jam where he swooped right over a guy that had a pretty nice chase-down block. Then Favors tried to one-up him with a finish off the pick-and-roll that DeAndre Jordan would just assume forget. So which one was better? Read More »

Dime Q&A: Isaiah Thomas On His P&R Defense, Playing With Boogie & A Lot More

Isaiah Thomas

Isaiah Thomas (Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports)

We freakin’ love Isaiah Thomas, and we’re not bashful about it either. The 5-9 point guard was selected with the last pick, No. 60, by the Kings in the 2011 NBA Draft, and he has met every challenge since head-on. His ability to score and lead the offense is the result of all his hard work, and it played a role in forcing Sacramento to switch Tyreke Evans to a small forward role. He also beat out a succession of point guards to retain the starting point guard spot in each of his three seasons in the NBA. We got lucky and spent a long time chatting with him by phone as he mentally prepared to face Detroit earlier this week. Read More »

After Clippers Win, Jermaine O’Neal Confronts Blake Griffin & CP3 Keeps Shooting

After the Clippers’ impressive 111-98 win over the Warriors Wednesday night, Chris Paul kept going. Not satisfied with his subpar 5-for-15 night shooting the ball, CP3 was spotted after the game hoisting up jumpers in a deserted Staples Center. That’s why he’s Chris Paul, we suppose. Like Paul, Dubs reserve center Jermaine O’Neal couldn’t let things on the court go after the game and patiently waited outside the Clippers locker-room for Blake Griffin. Read More »
