Chris Paul Says Home Loss To Bulls “Somewhat Felt Like A Road Game”

Chris Paul, Kirk Hinrich

Home court advantage is important in sports; Chris Paul doesn’t believe the Los Angeles Clippers have much of one at all. After his team lost to the Chicago Bulls 105-89 at Staples Center on Monday night, Paul said the game “somewhat felt like” it was played on the road. Read More »

GIF: Doc Rivers Is Shocked…Movember Edition

Doc Rivers

The Clippers got romped last night, and Doc Rivers was shocked by a call/play in the fourth. Those two things aren’t mutually exclusive, obviously, but since Doc joined his players in celebrating men’s health for Movember, the LA coach’s bewildered expression plus plus that thin, John Waters mustache made it all the more hilarious as the good folks on reddit’s r/NBA community show.

Video: Kirk Hinrich Shakes Jamal Crawford, Gets Revenge From Six Years Ago

Blake Griffin, Kirk Hinrich, Jamal Crawford

A Bulls team without Derrick Rose spanked the Clippers, 105-89, last night with six Bulls players reaching double-figures led by Jimmy Butler‘s 22 points and eight dimes. But it was Kirk Hinrich who did his best to exorcise the demon of Jamal Crawford‘s crossover on the break six years ago. Read More »

GIF: Chris Paul Spins Goran Dragic With Step-Back, Drains Three-Pointer

Chris Paul, Goran Dragic

Chris Paul isn’t the athlete he used to be, but that doesn’t mean he can’t still shake defenders with the best of them. Watch the Los Angeles Clippers’ point god spin Goran Dragic 180-degrees with a sick step-back move before draining a three-pointer in his team’s 120-107 win over the Phoenix Suns. Read More »

Kawhi Leonard: “I’m Pretty Sure I’ll Be In A Spurs Jersey For My Whole Life”

Kawhi Leonard, Blake Griffin

Picture Kawhi Leonard in anything but the silver and black of the Borg-like Spurs. We bet you can’t — unless you’re a Lakers fan unwilling to embrace reality (Leonard is allergic to the Hollywood glitz and glam). That’s why San Antonio’s decision not to offer the 2014 NBA Finals MVP an extension by the Oct. 31 deadline was so hard to comprehend. But Leonard knows what the Spurs are doing, and — after leading them to a 89-85 win at Staples Center last night — he made it clear he’s not likely to go anywhere in restricted free agency next summer.

Video: Kawhi Leonard Rips Chris Paul’s Crossover In Crunch-Time

Kawhi Leonard, Chris Paul

Plays like this are why Kawhi Leonard is so valuable to the San Antonio Spurs despite impaired vision. And even better, he certainly didn’t shoot like he couldn’t see tonight against the Los Angeles Clippers. The reigning Finals MVP scored 26 points (10-18 FGs) in the champs’ 89-85 come-from-behind victory at Staples Center, and made the game’s key defensive play by ripping Chris Paul’s dribble from a near standstill when the home team trailed by three with with under a minute remaining.

After Destruction By ‘Dubs, Doc Rivers Says Clippers Are Soft And Lack Heart

Doc Rivers

We’re barely a week into 2014-2015. It’s too early for legitimate worry let alone panic at the prospects of teams failing to meet expectations, and it’s too soon to hop on the bandwagon of squads outperforming them. Everyone can play in the NBA, and early-year results often prove anomalies as the regular season grind really gets underway come December. But Doc Rivers doesn’t care for such reasoning. After the Los Angeles Clippers confirmed their coach’s skepticism by getting destroyed by the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night, Rivers held nothing back while critiquing his team’s overwhelmingly dispiriting start to the season.

Blake Griffin, Draymond Green

This is a pretty accurate summary of the “showdown” between the rival Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors. After Draymond Green connected on his fourth triple to extend his team’s lead to 29 points, the do-everything forward taunted Blake Griffin in an extremely up close and personal manner. Read More »

Video: Utah’s Trevor Booker Rises To Another Level For Powerful Tip Dunk

Trevor Booker

DeAndre Jordan provided more aerial highlights in the Los Angeles Clippers’ win over the Utah Jazz last night, but Trevor Booker’s tip dunk might be just as impressive as any of them. Watch the high-flying southpaw cap an impressive individual performance by crashing in from the weak-side and showing off insane hang-time on a sick follow slam. Read More »
