Chris Paul may meet with other teams, but that doesn’t mean he’ll turn down more money from the Clippers.
Chris Paul will be one of the more coveted free agents on the market this offseason and will have his fair share of suitors. And according to reports from the LA Times, Paul is interested.
The Pelicans just didn’t have enough firepower on the court.
In a game where the Clippers were rested and hosting one of the league’s worst teams, and the Pelicans were playing without both Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday, there isn’t much that the home team could do to exceed expectations.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lakers fans packed Los Angeles City Hall chambers to witness the mayor and other officials declare Kobe Bryant Day in honor of the retired NBA superstar.
The Portland Trail Blazers tried to find a way to lose to the Dallas Mavericks, but their shooting guard said, “Nay Nay!”
Of late the performances of the Portland Trail Blazers could be termed “sporadic”. That’s if you like three-syllable words and were being charitable. Otherwise the sub-.500 team would be described as “limp and mediocre, headed towards bad” or, more simply, “disappointing”.
It may be remembered as the night the Cavs got their groove back.
Tonight, two teams came into Quicken Loans Arena in need of a win. The Cavaliers had lost six of their last nine games, and their lead in the Eastern Conference was down to just two games over the Celtics. The Pistons, winners of four of their last five, are locked in a tight playoff race down at the other end of the conference.
The Cavaliers take a 2-0 lead over the Indiana Pacers
If there’s one thing that’s consistent with the Cleveland Cavaliers, it’s that they have a knack for making things more difficult than they need to be. This was once again the case with their 117-111 win in game two.
The Cavs win in a shoot-out against the Lakers.
It’s official, the Cavaliers are going back to the playoffs. Not that it was ever in doubt, but with the 125-120 win over the Los Angeles Lakers the Cavs clinched their third straight playoff appearance.
After Kyrie Irving missed a game winning attempt, LeBron took over
LeBron James played 47 minutes tonight. That’s a lot, and it’d be tough to swallow if the team hadn’t come home with a win. The issue was very much in doubt, but James himself took matters into his own hands with long three pointers sprinkled in throughout the second half and overtime. He got just enough help from Kyrie Irving and company, and the Cavs scored a tough road victory over a decent team without Kevin Love.
Fresh from a run in the finals of the Governor’s Cup last year, the disappointment of the recent Philippine Cup campaign came as quite a surprise for many. But while the recent struggles have cast a shadow on last season’s breakthrough, co-captain Cliff Hodge is confident that there’s light at the end of the tunnel. Selected fourth overall in the 2012 draft, the do-it-all forward is one of a few with the unique perspective of seeing exactly how the franchise has evolved over the years.
Moving up to 4-0 in the 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup might have come with a cost for Meralco.
Cliff Hodge suffered an apparent calf injury late in the Bolts’ 89-83 victory over Rain or Shine on Wednesday, and coach Norman Black is wishing that the injury won’t be anything grave.
The turbulent season has come to a close
Well folks, the 2016-2017 season is officially over and another disappointing campaign is in the books. I’m sure we’ll have many more thoughts about the odd season that we just endured, but tonight the visiting Kings managed to help their lottery position by losing to the Clippers while Los Angeles guaranteed themselves home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.
In an exciting shootout against the New York Knicks, the L.A. Clippers ended their multiple-game skid.
If you were looking for an exciting NBA matchup tonight, look no further than the L.A. Clippers versus the New York Knicks. This game had everything: lobs, dunks, wild threes, ties, clutch shots, subplot drama. It even had a Charles Oakley arrest.
Clippers beat Lakers 133-109, Clippers fans collectively shrug.
The Clippers completed dominated the Lakers at Staples Center Tuesday night. Approximately 16 minutes into the game, the Clippers were already up 25 points and the game was effectively over.
The Los Angeles Clippers led 94-76 with five minutes left in a home game against the Sacramento Kings. Then they lost.
In a winner-take-all game, the Clippers came out flat, and were dominated by the Jazz from start to finish.
There really isn’t much to say about this game that hasn’t already been said in previous game recaps. The Clippers’ defense was effective only in very small doses, their offense struggled to generate anything, especially in the halfcourt, and their energy wasn’t great.
The L.A. Clippers, in a well-balanced effort, blew by the Houston Rockets for their 50th win of the season.
The L.A. Clippers reached 50 wins for the 5th straight season, won their 6th consecutive game, and Paul Pierce even reached 15th amongst the NBA’s all-time scoring leaders. And still, with just one game remaining in the regular season, the Clippers’ magic number remains 1 for securing home court advantage against the Utah Jazz in the first round of the playoffs.
Led by standout performances from DeAndre Jordan and Chris Paul, the Clippers avenged their Christmas night loss to the Lakers.
The Clippers usually aren’t the kind of team that gets fired up to play early weekend games. Their Saturday and Sunday matinees are usually sluggish, hard-to-watch tilts that tend to leave you wondering whether watching the game was worth it, even after a win.
With only six games remaining in the regular season, the L.A. Clippers must find some pre-playoff rhythm as they face the lottery-bound Phoenix Suns.
The Big Picture
Despite all of the injury woes, defensive collapses, and chemistry disruptions that have occurred over the course of the season for the L.A. Clippers, there is still a chance to build some timely momentum heading into the playoffs.
In a game with its share of groans, the Clippers break the law and get a hard fought victory.
Man, this game.
This game was absolutely loaded. It was mostly an offensive display from both teams aside from a nice defensive effort from Portland during a chunk of the second quarter, but it was quite a show to watch.
