Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! Back in November the Clippers turned in their biggest stinker of the season, getting run off the Pacers home floor 107-80. They shot poorly from the field (33 percent, 22 percent from three) and they defended poorly (Pacers shot 50 percent from the field and 54 perc[...]
I keep going back to that Blake Griffin locker room interview after the Miami game. “Teams can’t come in here and punk us,” he said. “Not by a long shot.” Sadly, I erased the game, and I’m worried I don’t have the quote exactly right – except for “punked.” I know he said “punked.” Blake is usually a[...]
Today’s game against the Lakers drags up memories of the last LA grudge match, a game the Clippers should have won but didn’t. It’s a slightly easier pill to swallow now, since the Clippers have won 8 of their last 12, including wins over the Nuggets and the Heat, but that Laker ga[...]

After the Clippers’ best game of the season, I’ve been curious to see the reactions all around. I mean, do the Clips revel in this? Do they rest on their laurels? Do they continue to grow? So I looked around to see what was the reaction to the Clippers, which in large part was positive. [...]
Most recaps begin with what happened coming down the stretch, how the Clippers handled the pressure, if they folded or withstood the heat, but I want to talk about the first quarter, well, first. That, my friends, was the best quarter I’ve ever seen from the Clippers. Consider the circumstance[...]
The game’s highest profile team strolls into Staples Center tonight, winner of 21 of their last 22. They are laughing, having fun and enjoying being the bad guys. During the Cavs’ brutal loss to the Lakers, LeBron tweeted: “Crazy. Karma is a b****.. Gets you every time. Its not goo[...]
