Outside the Boxscore:
It wouldn't be a quality week on Outside the Boxscore without an alley-oop slam coming from Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin.
During Wednesday night's Los Angeles Clippers/Minnesota Timberwolves affair, a Clippers fast break in the first quarter saw Matt Barnes find Griffin for a thunderous jam:
BEST OF MAXIM
RETURN OF RICKY
After consulting with his doctor, T'Wolves point guard Ricky Rubio returned to practice with the team on Wednesday and has been cleared for full contact with no restrictions.
MINNEAPOLIS No knock on Kevin Love, but that was supposed to go well.
Those were the Kings, and the Timberwolves were on a five-game losing streak with something to prove. Those were the Kings, who went into the game 4-9. Those were the Kings, and to lose in Sacramento would be to declare some sort of alarm surrounding a team that started the season 5-2.
Combine all that with Love...
MINNEAPOLIS The Timberwolves are on their way back to Minnesota Thursday morning after a week on the road in Portland, Oakland, Sacramento and Los Angeles. They come away from the trip with one win the obvious one, Sacramento and three losses, and it's hard to chalk the trip up as anything more than a slight disappointment.
No, it wasn't terrible. There weren't blowout...
MINNEAPOLIS The state of Minnesota just let out a massive sigh. After an eight-month absence, Ricky Rubio is back well, almost.
The Timberwolves announced Wednesday that Rubio has been cleared to participate in full-contact practices with no limitations. He visited with Dr. Richard Steadman in Vail, Colo., early this week, and this was the outcome the team expected going into...
The Los Angeles Clippers today announced that five-time NBA All-Star guard Chauncey Billups will return to action on Wednesday, Nov. 28 against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Billups appeared in 20 games for the Clippers last season before suffering a torn left Achilles tendon on Feb. 6 in Orlando.
We are all excited to have Chauncey back, Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro said...
Clippers forward, Matt Barnes, and his wife Gloria Govan stripped down for this photoshoot with Urban Ink magazine:
Sometimes a little locker room fun can turn out to be a little embarrassing. Check out the video of Memphis Grizzlies center Zach Randolph (a.k.a. Z-Bo) wearing a pair of “drunk goggles.” They’re designed to simulate the double vision, blurriness, loss of depth perception and coordination that happens when you drink too much.
Ricky Rubio has been cleared to begin practicing with the Minnesota Timberwolves for the first time since tearing ligaments in his left knee last March.
Rubio met with the doctor who performed his surgery in Vail, Colo., this week to get the final clearance, and the team announced that he was given the green light Wednesday.
Rubio tore the ACL in his left knee in a game against...
Say what you want about Harrison Barnes not being aggressive, but here’s a clip of him throwing down a one handed dunk on Nikola Pekovic. He even took the bump and was still able to get up and smash on Pekovic’s head. Source: Dime Magazine
Their centerpiece's return has not solved the Minnesota Timberwolves' problems, but another key player is closer to coming back. The Milwaukee Bucks will largely have to solve their issues using the pieces already in place.
Both Minnesota and Milwaukee started the season surprisingly well but have since struggled heading into their matchup at the Target Center on Friday night...
LOS ANGELES - Chris Paul had 23 points and 11 assists, and the Los Angeles Clippers welcomed Chauncey Billups back to the lineup for the first time this season with a 101-95 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night.
Billups had eight points and three assists in 20 minutes as the Clippers ended a four-game losing streak. The five-time All-Star, beginning his 16th...
Minnesota Timberwolves star Kevin Love is one of the smartest players in the league and that was on display in a game against Golden State. During the third quarter of that game Love found himself caught in midair trying to shot a jump shot. So instead of firing up a bad shot Love fired a pass off the back of teammate Greg Steimsma. Love then got the ball back and drew a foul on...
