Los Angeles Clippers
LOS ANGELES -- After Chris Paul joined the Los Angeles Clippers and Blake Griffin last summer, they were supposed to become a two-man show. But now the Clippers have the balance of a ballerina. Los Angeles had six players in double-figures - but none with more than 16 points - as it disposed of visiting Atlanta, 89-76, on Sunday afternoon at Staples Center. Griffin had 16 points and six rebounds and Paul added 15 points and eight assists as the Clippers won their third straight to move to 4-2. Los Angeles forced 22 Atlanta turnovers and picked up 12 steals. Josh Smith had 13 points, six rebounds, four assists and five turnovers for the Hawks (2-3), who lost their second straight after also falling to the defending-champion Miami Heat on Friday. Al Horford and Louis Williams each added 11 points for Atlanta, which shot 41.7 percent from the field and just 7-of-16 from the free-throw line. The Clippers relied on their bench for a long stretch in the fourth quarter as the...

LOS ANGELES -- From the beginning, the Clippers knew they had an experienced group of reserves -- players who knew what to do with their limited minutes on the court.
They had Matt Barnes and Jamal Crawford and Ronny Turiaf and Lamar Odom, and they figured all of them, plus burgeoning star Eric Bledsoe, would be capable enough to give the team a boost of energy and important offensive...
The Clippers folks, the other team in LA, have all the tools this season to make some serious NBA noise. For the first time in decades, the Clippers front office has filled most of the teams holes and has placed a competitive team on the floor that can compete every night. This Clippers team has size, speed, depth, youth, and star power. Not to forget a superior clutch performer...
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Blake Griffin scored 16 points, Chris Paul had 15 points and eight assists and the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Atlanta Hawks 89-76 on Sunday.
Jamal Crawford, who won the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year award in 2010 while playing for Atlanta, had 11 points after coming in with a team-high 21.8 average -- tops among the league's reserves. Fifth-year center...
Kenyon Martin continues to look for an NBA contract.
The Los Angeles Clippers are still Blake Griffin's team, but the star power forward doesn't need to do all the heavy lifting on the offensive end.
Center DeAndre Jordan and newcomer Jamal Crawford have been taking care of that lately.
They're a big reason Los Angeles could score in triple figures in seven consecutive games for the first time in nearly two decades as...
Lamar Odom is trying to lose another 12 pounds.
Marvin Williams will never live up to his draft position, but there’s really no shame in that. After all, he didn’t decide to select himself ahead of Chris Paul and Deron Williams, and it wasn’t his problem that the Hawks were in desperate need of a point guard. It isn’t like Williams is an Olowokandi type, either. With great size and a dependable jump shot, Marvin...
With seven games and two weeks in the books for the wine and gold you can start to see trends taking shape, some good and some bad. In the end the Cavs started the week out with a buzz and ended it with a whimper. Such ups and downs should be expected from a team this young and a roster so incomplete. But as a proud shareholder of Glass Half Full Incorporated I think I’ll...
