Fox Sports West:
Jamal Crawford, the Clippers super-sub guard, was not picked as a reserve for the NBA All-Star game in Houston Feb. 17.
NBA head coaches selected 14 reserves for the East and West teams. Crawford, in his 13th NBA season, has never made an All-Star team but was thought to have a good chance to be selected.
Instead, the All-Star reserves named Thursday to the Western Conference team are: Tim Duncan and Tony Parker (from San Antonio); Russell Westbrook (Oklahoma City), James Harden (Houston), Zach Randolph (Memphis), LaMarcus Aldridge (Portland) and David Lee (Golden State).
This is Duncans 14th All-Star team. Its the first selection for Harden.
The reserves for the Eastern Conference team are: Chris Bosh (Miami), Tyson Chandler (New York), Joakim Noah (Chicago), Paul George (Indiana), Luol Deng (Chicago), Jrue Holiday (Philadelphia) and Kyrie Irving (Cleveland).
This is the first All-Star team for Chandler, Noah, George, Holiday and Irving.

Is it just me? Or has video of Kevin Durant dunking just become a regular across sites lately?
This latest one comes against the Clippers last night, late night the 4th quarter. A mean crossover at the top of the key led Durant to meet Lamar Odom at the rim and well…. I’ll just let you watch.

The Los Angeles Clippers are unsure if Chris Paul can play in their upcoming games, most of which will take place on the road.
A visit to the Phoenix Suns might help if Paul has to sit out and could aid the Clippers' attempt to avoid a third straight defeat Thursday night.
Paul missed the Clippers' sweep of a three-game road trip last week because of a bruised right kneecap...
After the Clippers lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night with Chris Paul sitting out because of a bruised right kneecap, Coach Vinny Del Negro didn't offer encouragement about his All-Star point guard.
"Chris is going to be out," Del Negro said. "Hopefully we get him back soon, but other guys have got to step up."
That most likely means that...
Eric Bledsoe bounced back from a rough night with a full stat line in a 93-88 loss to the Phoenix Suns. The Clippers point guard had 15 points (5-10 FG, 4-4 FT) to go with a 3-pointer, seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block in 30 minutes before fouling out.
Bledsoe is a must-own player with Chris Paul sidelined with a kneecap injury and a must-stash player for...
Caron Butler blocked a shot from Serge Ibaka on Tuesday night during the Los Angeles Clippers’ loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, but Ibaka was not nearly as embarrassed after the play was over as the official who was standing nearby. As you can see, the block sailed out of bounds and drilled one of the refs right in the dome, knocking him to the ground.
The official laughed it...
Heads up! NBA referee Derek Richardson deserves hazard pay — or a reminder to pay better attention to the action going on right in front of him — after he was served a face full of basketball while officiating Tuesday’s game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Los Angeles Clippers.
After Serge Ibaka drove the baseline and settled up for a short jumper, Caron Butler rose and...

Kevin Durant takes Matt Barnes one-on-one and finishes with the HUGE flush. Durant’s big jam came during the 4th quarter of Tuesday night’s game and put the Thunder up 101-85 at Staples Center, as they were in total control over the Clippers and would eventually walk away with the 109-97 win against a strong Western Conference foe. Durant finished with 32 points, 7 assists and...

In many people’s mind the way to get to the finals in the West is going through the OKC Thunder and/or the LA Clippers. Last night was a preview of what might happened if these two happened to face each other in the Western Conference Finals this season. Only one problem, the Clippers were without Chris Paul, but the game was still competitive and interesting. However without Paul...
