In his first season as coach of the Clippers, you could say Vinny Del Negro was exactly what we expected him to be. His perceived ability to develop players and to “get” his team to play hard through the last whistle were the reasons the Clippers hired him over Dwane Casey, who came with high praise[...]
When you take Baron Davis off a team, any team, and replace him with Mo Williams, you will inevitably get a different style of play from your point guard. One is an exceptional passer, the other – aside from a few months this year in Cleveland – a gifted shooter. But beyond these most basic characte[...]
Over the past four seasons, neither the Clippers nor the Knicks have won more than 32 games in any of them. During the losing, they have shared such players as Zach Randolph, Tim Thomas, Mardy Collins and Cuttino Mobley (kind of). Yet while both struggled to win, even to put together consistent line[...]
How’s that for the start of an 11-game road trip? The shorthanded Clippers entered The Highlight Factory hoping for a win against the team with the fourth best record in the Eastern Conference. They wanted to set the tone for a successful trip that will lead them to Miami and then Orlando next, so y[...]
Over the summer, back when the Clippers had five players under contract and aspirations of building a team around LeBron James, I (with the help of my brother) found it appropriate to examine the cases of two particularly significant pieces of the puzzle in some detail. The future of the franchise w[...]
Don’t look now, but the Clippers have beaten two streaking Western Conference teams in a row, both by double digits. For the second consecutive game, they showed a consistent level of play that comes at the right time, because their next game is against the Heat. After dismantling a full-strength De[...]
Perhaps understanding the excitement they have garnered across the NBA, the Clippers did their part to entertain the local fans in the state’s capitol on the way to a 100-99 victory over the Kings. During the start of the season, they managed to be fun to watch despite the near inevitability of defe[...]
When Baron Davis came back a couple of games ago, I couldn’t help but wonder how it would impact the Clippers’ backcourt rotation. Eric Gordon had taken his game to another level in Davis’ absence, seizing control of the offense and assuming a majority of the playmaking duties. Hopeful point guard o[...]
