Can anyone believe the NBA season is almost at an end? The playoffs are almost upon us, which means some teams will be reaching for NBA championships while other teams will be at home reaching for the remote. Every season that passes by there are players that have taken their game to the next level. These players have made the “leap” essentially, star players finally asserting themselves as dominant, All-Star caliber talents. 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 »

Confession time: we sometimes deliberately re-watch Giannis Antetokounmpo film in the morning praying he did something noteworthy enough to publish. This is 80 percent related to what a fantastic 19-year-old kid he appears to be, and 20 percent because we’re super stoked we can spell his name from memory. Anyway, in spite of a, 106-98, loss to the Clippers at Staples last night, Giannis got a nice block on one end, then finished off the sequence with a jam on the other end. Our prayers were answered.

Gordon Hayward Skies For Chase-Down Rejection

The Jazz got beat by the Clippers, 96-87, Friday night, but they started off strong, opening up an 11-point lead after the first session. The Clippers eventually asserted their dominance over their less talented counterparts during the second half at Energy Solutions Arena. Despite succumbing in a disastrous final three quarters, Gordon Hayward got a filthy chase-down block on Darren Collison. 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 »

Blake Griffin’s Gravity-Defying Putback Jam

Blake Griffin again put on an aerial display in the late game last night. He also dropped 30 points on a so-so (for him) 13-for-28 from the field, making it his 23rd straight game with at least 20 points — a career high. He added 15 rebounds, three assists, three steals and a putback slam that had our heart rate well over 150 BPMs. Watch as he throws it down one-handed while the Dubs look equal parts helpless and impressed.

The Clippers withstood a rally by the Hawks in the fourth to escape a meeting Saturday night with a 109-108 win that could have gone to an extra session if Jeff Teague had made both his free throws with a second remaining. But Blake Griffin continues to lead the way for the Clippers, shooting 11-of-19 from the field for a game-high 27 points. Despite Blake’s continued excellent, it was Chris Paul‘s off-the-backboard lob for the DeAndre Jordan slam that drew the “oohs and aahs.” Read More »
