Howard-to-Clippers? Lakers say “never”

  The Los Angeles Lakers have rejected overtures from their Staple Center roommates about a sign-and-trade for Dwight Howard, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.   ESPN spent the past week pushing that old rumor that Howard and Chris Paul have been in touch about the possibility of playing together.   “They will never do it,”...

The Clippers need Jerry Sloan

  The days of Chris Paul playing point guard, coach, and general manager of the Los Angeles Clippers will soon be over. When he actually does re-sign (a lock, in my opinion), the team will finally be free from the pressure of “what will Chris think?” The offense too must change from the Chris Paul...

Deja vu in Memphis?

  While Memphis can take a lot of positives from their buzzer-beating Game 2 loss in L.A. (Conley’s 28 points, great 3rd quarter), it’s getting harder and harder to distinguish this series from what I saw last year around this time. After watching the first two games of the series between the Grizzlies and the Clippers, I can’t help but feel...

Recap: Clippers cruise past rival Grizzlies

  You just never got the sense that Memphis would win this one, even when the game was close at times.   The Clippers played their style of game of Saturday night en route to a win over the Grizzlies in Game 1. Normally, LAC has the guards, MEM has the bigs….but the Clips...

Clippers sweep season series w/ Lakers

  There’s no doubt now as to which team runs L.A. these days. The Los Angeles Clippers beat their Staples Center roommates 109-95 on Sunday, taking all three games from them this season. It was a textbook effort for the ‘Clips’, who were led by stars Chris Paul and Blake Griffin (24 points each). The...

Should Blake Griffin have retaliated?

  I don’t think Blake Griffin is soft. The man is just a shooting guard in a power forward’s body. He prefers to go over and around guys as opposed to just plain bullying them inside. Regardless, he’s still a beast who few players want to matchup with downcourt. That being said, when Griffin reacts to...

Ibaka facing suspension?

  Reputation or no reputation, I don’t see a way that Serge Ibaka avoids suspension for what he did to Blake Griffin on Sunday afternoon. As the Los Angeles Clippers mounted a furious comeback late in the game, Griffin was repeatedly giving his team second chance opportunities off the offensive glass. Ibaka then decided...

Clipper Blog: The sky is not falling

  Some media members are concerned about the Los Angeles Clippers right now, after starting their’ Grammy’ roadtrip 1-3. This panic is even starting to make its way to Clipper Nation. Now that’s funny. Since starting their roadtrip with a win at Minnesota, a team they beat handily the last time up there, LAC has lost...

Recap: Clippers dominate Grizzlies without CP3

  If Chris Paul is an MVP candidate then Rudy Gay should run for president. With Chris Paul out, the Clippers continued to run like a well-oiled machine Monday night. But without Rudy Gay out with a death in the family, the Grizzlies just couldn’t score. This game was decided in the 1st half. It...

Lakers can take positives from Clipper loss

  The Clippers beat the Lakers 107-102 Friday night. While the Lakers never led in the game, all wasn’t lost. The purp n’ yellow can take a lot of positives away from this one. 1. Mike D’Antoni can easily improve bench production. The Lakers’ worst stretch against the Clippers happened to start the 2nd...

Hack-a-Howard nearly backfires for Clippers

  Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro, with his team up 99-91 and 3:42 left to play, called for his team to intentionally foul Lakers center Dwight Howard. The result was a 99-97 game with 1:29 to play. Not only did Vinny take his team out of rhythm by imploying the tactic, he also showed zero confidence...

Blake, Kobe, & the end of ‘flopping’

  The NBA has taken a firm stand on ‘flopping’ in the NBA, dishing out the following punishments per violation: 1st – warning 2nd - $5,000 3rd – $10,000 4th – $15,000 5th – $30,000 6th – suspension My first thought on this was: sure, but if it’s an elimination game in the playoffs you can bet a...

CP3 & Dwight: The Battle for L.A. continues…

  It feels like it’s been years since the NBA Lockout ended. Remember when it was supposed to be a new landscape for the smaller market teams to thrive in going forward? Well, before the ink had even dried on the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, the names of Chris Paul and Dwight Howard dominated the news. Both...
