Watch Chris Paul Demolish The Suns

Chris Paul played angry last night. Well, angrier than usual for what is still a tune-up for the 2014-15 regular season. With many predicting the Clippers as a title contender, their 1-5 preseason record heading into last night’s game against the Suns did not bode well for their championship aspirations. So Paul, along with fellow all-star, Blake Griffin, decided to treat their second-to-last preseason contest like they had something to prove. Read More »

Taj Gibson Pokes Fun At Jared Cunningham After Eric Bledsoe Drops Him

Taj Gibson

Last night, Eric Bledsoe was going against his old team, the Clippers, after getting traded to Phoenix last fall. He dropped 27 on them; although, Chris Paul and Blake Griffin led the Clippers to a 108-105 win in a fun preseason contest. At one point Bledsoe made LA guard Jared Cunningham look downright foolish with a step-back that sent him toppling all the way under the basket, and Bulls forward Taj Gibson certainly noticed.

Video: Watch Stephen Curry Light Up The Clippers

Matt Barnes, Stephen Curry

First, the Clippers didn’t dress Blake Griffin or Chris Paul for last night’s game against the Warriors. Second, Stephen Curry had six turnovers to match his six assists in the 125-107 stomping of LA. Third, Steph dropped 27 on the “BGCP3“-less Clippers, by going 4-of-5 from the beyond the arc in a little over 30 minutes of action. Fourth, lists don’t accurately show how casually Steph can dominate a game like he did last night. Read More »

DeAndre Jordan can jump. We all know that. But what’s equally impressive though often overlooked about the Los Angeles Clippers high-flyer is his incredible speed and dexterity for a player his size. Jordan moves and contorts like a 6-7, 210 pound small forward as opposed to 6-11, 265 pound center, and it allows him to rim-run for finishes and lob other big men just can’t make. This sick halfcourt alley-oop against the Golden State Warriors is just such an example. Read More »

GIF: Blake Griffin Palms Loose Ball To Start Break, Finishes Lob Left-Handed

Blake Griffin

We’ve always maintained that more frightening than Blake Griffin’s otherworldly explosiveness is his unmatched blend of strength, coordination, and dexterity. No big man in the league has better balance than Blake, a trait that’s become more apparent as he’s expanded his offensive game to include a handle that belies his size. But the leaping ability sure is great, too – it’s certainly tough to choose one attribute over the other. Fortunately, this incredible sequence from last night’s Los Angeles Clippers-Denver Nuggets exhibition in Las Vegas ensures we don’t have to, and shows off the total package of Griffin’s surreal athleticism.

Video: Chris Paul Crossover & Lob To DeAndre Jordan

Trey Burke, Chris Paul

It wasn’t just Derrick Rose who showed off the handles in preseason action last night. Chris Paul shook Trey Burke by faking towards DeAndre Jordan‘s high screen, only to cross over to his right. Once in the lane, Paul lobbed it to DJ for the easy slam. If you want to study how to run the high screen and roll, this sequence by CP3 and DJ is a perfect example. Read More »

Blake Griffin

While Clippers power forward Blake Griffin worked on his stroke this offseason, and appears to have added a three-pointer into his bag of offensive tricks, he’s still the same guy who jumped over a Kia. Blake showed off his range and what that range means for him on the offensive end last night in Utah with 31 points in less than 30 minutes. Read More »
