Eric Bledsoe’s point guard opponents just aren’t getting any easier are they? Since picking up the job in the San Antonio game, he’s had to face Tony Parker, Russell Westbrook, Chauncey Billups, Deron Williams and now, la creme de la creme, Chris Paul. Not only is Chris Paul health[...]
In Denver tonight, the Clippers will focus on creating their first winning streak of the season. It will be tough playing against a talented, if injury-riddled, Nuggets team. Much of what lead to the Clippers first regular season victory can be found in tonight’s game. Against Oklahoma City, t[...]
Prior to the game, the Clippers lost to the Spurs in 24 of their last 25 times. It continued tonight. The Spurs dominated with stellar perimeter play, every time the Clippers made a little run there would be three from Manu, Richard Jefferson or Gary Neal. Those three and Tony Parker, he of the $50 [...]

In the second game of the season, the Clippers lost to the Warriors by 18 and the second half of the game didn’t even feel that close. The game’s first possessions started out ugly, as C[...]
Looking forward to tonight’s game against the Golden State Warriors (I’ll be live chatting at Daily Dime Live during the game). Never the most defensive minded team, this year’s Warriors team looks especially incapable of slowing the score down. Evidence: Wednesday’s 132-128 [...]
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[...]
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[...]
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[...]
