On the brink: Trailblazers stall Clippers

LOS ANGELES-Life without Blake Griffin and Chris Paul wasn’t too kind to the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night. Nearly 40 points went out the window when both Griffin and Paul crashed and burned with season-ending injuries in Game 4 of the Clippers’ first round series against the Portland Trailblazers. Portland’s dynamic backcourt duo Damian […]

Clippers comes to community with giving

LOS ANGELES-It’s the holiday season. This is the time of year where humanity is at its best as the need to lend a hand to help others becomes more out of free will rather than obligation. It becomes the right thing to do. Giving is not just the right thing to do; it is a […]

Clippers thinking title not summer distraction

CULVER CITY-The loud hoopla about the summer saga around Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan has made some players weary about discussing the topic any further. To them, it’s a moot point. The focus now is on basketball, practice and preparing for a 2015-2016 season that they hope will result in possibly raising a championship […]

Chris Paul Family Foundation brings smiles to Compton

COMPTON-Good things do happen in Compton. The Chris Paul Family Foundation is now a part of that legacy. For a city largely associated with being the innovators of gansta rap, high crime rates and economic and educational depravity, there are good amount of pockets of goodness that are part of the Compton fiber. Major League […]

Pickups give Clippers new and improved look

There might be a lot of people who may have to wait on that early delivery of handing the Cleveland Cavaliers and San Antonio Spurs the NBA title next season.

The Steph Curry affect

Ice water in the veins. A wicked crossover dribble. The lethal jump shot. The Steph Curry affect. Catch it while you can. That’s what the Golden State Warriors have done, riding the league’s MVP all the way to the NBA Finals. As former Golden State coach and now current ABC/ESPN NBA analyst Mark Jackson would […]

Then there are others that we learn, grow and can build from. This is one of those moments for the Los Angeles Clippers. The pain of losing a seven-game series, especially the […]

Game 3 a moment for Austin

LOS ANGELES-Six minutes. That’s all the time that Austin Rivers needed to help out his dad. That’s all the time the Los Angeles Clippers needed to put away the pesky Houston Rockets in Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinals series.

Paul and Clippers KO Spurs

LOS ANGELES-It was fitting that Game 7 of the NBA Western Conference first round series between the Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio Spurs would be played on the night when the boxing world was at the center of attention with the Floyd “Money” Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao welterweight championship bout holding court. Like the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight, […]

Time for Clippers to finish it

Game 7. This is grown folks’ business. This is where guts and glory come into play. There’s something about a Game 7 that makes you tune in. Maybe it’s the unfolding drama that comes with a series-deciding game. Maybe it’s seeing the joy of  celebration of a team climbing through and over mountainous obstacles they’ve […]

Warriors-Clippers: Collision Course

LOS ANGELES-Splash versus blue-collar. Grit or highlight reel. The youthful energy of the Golden State Warriors or the experience of the Los Angeles Clippers. Take your pick. Tuesday night’s finale at Staples  Center which landed in Golden State’s favor with a 110-106 win could be a precursor to the two teams meeting up in the […]

Blake, the difference maker

LOS ANGELES–No worries here. Blake is here.

A struggle but a win for Clippers

LOS ANGELES-Nothing comes easy these days for the Los Angeles Clippers. Not even beating the Charlotte Hornets on a Tuesday night at Staples Center. Holding on to a large double-digit lead against a team with 37 losses for the season seems to be too much of a task to ask for. But this is still […]

NBA’s 5 Best Point Guards

Basketball is a young man’s game and because of it the NBA is in good hands. Just look around and you’ll see a bunch of young talent springing all over the place, particularly at the point guard position. The old-school definition of point guard has evolved into the modern-day floor general being formed more in the […]

A Day of Charity for Clippers

LOS ANGELES-There is an old saying that says charity begins at home. Well, the Los Angeles Clippers have been pretty good on that front in taking care of communities that support them in and around the Los Angeles area.

Redemption. Chemistry. Progress. Advancing past the second round. That was pretty much the theme of the Los Angeles Clippers Media Day. The Clippers have the right nucleus of players to take care of the chemistry part.

OKC Stumble, Clippers Surge Late

LOS ANGELES-This was probably not the Mother’s Day celebration that Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder had in mind. Durant scored 40 points against the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 4 of the Western Conference second round playoff game. Looking back, Durant probably should have scored more than that after being guarded by Chris […]
