In a close game, the Clippers found themselves down by 3 last night in overtime to the Dallas Mavericks. An offensive possession finds the ball in Matt Barnes hands at the top of the key for a wide open 3-pointer. Barnes shoots 34% from 3 on the season, so many would conclude that that was a good shot and had a decent chance to tie the game.
Unfortunately, the shot wasn’t even close. A wide open airball in fact. Thanks to NBA Mistress for the video.
BEST OF MAXIM
Matt Barnes will likely want to forget this possession from Wednesday night ASAP. With under 25 seconds to play in OT against the Dallas Mavericks and down 103-100, Barnes got the ball at the top of the arc, launched an uncontested three point shot and caught air. The Mavericks went on to beat the Clippers 109-102.
Lamar Odom returned to Dallas for the first time since his disastrous tenure and mutual agreement to part ways with the Mavericks last season. Upon checking into the game, Odom received thunderous boos from the crowd, which returned every time he touched the ball. To the delight of Dallas fans, Odom turned the ball over on his first offensive possession sparking cheers from the...

Jada Paul, Chris Paul’s wife, was on Instagram straight flexin’ recently, showing off her husband’s ridiculously massive sneaker collection, and it’s a sneakerhead’s dream. CP3′s wall to wall collection is so large, a customized walk-in closet was insufficient. Instead, Paul transformed an entire bedroom in the couple’s home into the ultimate...
The Los Angeles Clippers lost an overtime thriller to the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night, but they were a mere shove away from winning the game in miraculous fashion. After OJ Mayo tied the score with 0.6 seconds remaining, Blake Griffin nearly pulled off the highlight of the season. However, he was called for an offensive foul and the shot didn’t count.
As you can see, Griffin...
Chris Paul’s wife provided this picture on her Instagram of just a portion of his shoe stock which is so huge that they needed an entire bedroom to make all those Jordans fit. I think Paul has more shoes right now than I’ve had in my entire life.
Chris Paul turned a bedroom of his house into a museum specifically for his shoes, and it is glorious.
During Tuesday's Mavericks-Clippers game, veteran announcer Dick Stockton had a pretty egregious announcing flub that he covered up pretty quickly. In the third quarter, Mike James of the Mavericks hoisted up a three that bounced off the front of the rim and into the arms of Blake Griffin. Stockton called the shot like it was a made three, and it took a second for him to realize...
Lamar Odom received a roar of boos every time he touched the ball in his return to Dallas Tuesday, and though he says he’d apologize to Mark Cuban for the way things ended last season, he feels no guilt about his early departure from the team.
According to Tim MacMahon, ESPN Dallas:
“Guilty? No, no, no,” Odom said when asked if he felt guilt about the way his season in Dallas...
Lamar Odom had the worst season of his career with the Dallas Mavericks last year. When the Mavericks acquired the 12-year veteran, they thought they would be getting the same type of role player the Los Angeles Lakers had during the seven years prior. That did not happen, and Odom’s only season in Dallas ended with the team paying him to not be on the roster.
As you might expect...

Reaching 50 wins is rather routine for the San Antonio Spurs, but it's uncharted territory for the Los Angeles Clippers.
Winning three straight regular-season games in San Antonio would also be a new feat.
