It shouldn’t be a surprise that the Clippers and Marqus Blakely are parting ways. He played only two preseason games and ran for 18 minutes of them. Sure, he’d be worthwhile to keep around if only because of his impressive Summer League performance, but the Clippers had 15 men on their r[...]
Buried in Mark Heisler’s opinion piece on LeBron James is a trade nugget that I can’t help but mull over: An NBA source says the Cavaliers then offered Mo Williams and Jamario Moon for the Clippers’ Baron Davis, desperate to please James, who likes Baron and was down on Mo … [...]
I’m glad that’s over. Pre-season came to a merciful close tonight with a 96-94 loss to the Sacramento Kings. The Clippers came out hot, built a double digit lead, squandered it, fell behind, tied the game with under 30 seconds to go on a loooong 3-pointer by rookie Al-Farouq Aminu, and were beaten i[...]
Even before the off-season started, it was quite obvious what position the Clippers were going to focus on: acquiring a small forward. As a part of a financial overhaul to potentially lure a top free agent SF, the Clippers cut ties will all but five players, keeping Baron Davis at PG, Eric Gordon at[...]
Tonight is the Clippers last pre-season game and they’ll play the Sacramento Kings at home before taking eight days off for the season opener. In the last pre-season game, the Clippers cleaned the Kings clocks, beating them by 42 in their lone win of the pre-season. Kaman, Blake and Al-Farouq [...]
A few notes as I get back into town and the groove of things: last night, I came home late to check in on the Clippers and the first thing I find is that Blake Griffin isn’t in the box score and I’m instantaneously nervous. I try to evaluate how the Clipper players have played (Cookie 28[...]
After blowing an 18 point lead against San Antonio in Mexico City, the Clippers tried to make up an 18 point deficit tonight against the Denver Nuggets in their preseason home opener. That they fell short in both games is neither a good sign for the regular season nor a reason to panic quite yet. Gi[...]
There should be a lot of chatter and controversy with Carmelo Anthony in the building tonight. When will he be traded? Will the Clippers get him (I say probably not)? Do the Clippers even want him? Etc. Will you come to any conclusions when you watch him tonight as the Nuggets come to town in the Pr[...]
Let's Go Clippers, let's go! This 2019/2020 season is going be incredible and we're watching every step with you.
