It was only a matter of time. With the perfect rhyme nickname for Blake, QuakeGriffin.com has launched with all your Blake Griffin glory dunk needs. Yes, yes, it even has news that Blake has announced to join in the (formerly) culturally significant basketball spectacle that is the dunk contest. Reg[...]

The Clippers only played well enough to lose to the Orlando Magic by a respectable 9 points. The struggling Magic regained their mojo, ran out to a 35-14 lead after the first quarter and the Clippers never came all the way back. They did outplay the Magic in the last three quarters but they never go[...]
