  • Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Milwaukee Bucks

    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.

  • Clippers Dispatch Lakers, 113-97

    Led by standout performances from DeAndre Jordan and Chris Paul, the Clippers avenged their Christmas night loss to the Lakers.

  • Clippers Look to Cool Off Streaky Heat

    In the second game of their East Coast road trip, the Clippers match up with a Miami team that has won two in a row.
