Clippers games are an odd sight. Not so much because there is basketball, it is just that it is hard to believe the team finally got its act together long enough to be this g...

Los Angeles Clippers center Ronny Turiaf decided to celebrate his 30th birthday in style, throwing a party in his Beverly Hills home. What really made it distinctive was the cake that he was received, which looks like a Louis Vuitton bag:
No comment, honestly, on the cake, but it has me thinking of this now.
Maybe it wasn’t a purse cake, it was just European?
Turiaf according to TMZ celebrated his 30th birthday at a ritzy Beverly Hills home (not his own) and the cake was a woman’s Louis Vuitton bag.
Don’t ask me why.
Arron Afflalo was somewhat reflective in his return to Denver on Wednesday. He told the reporters, including Christopher Dempsey of the Denver Post, covering the game that playing for the Nuggets was his first opportunity to grow as a scorer and become a better player. In Detroit, he was a bit player on a good team relied on mostly for defense. In Denver, he needed to do more.
J.J. Redick was constant movement, and Matt Barnes was visibly tired chasing him around. Somehow the Magic had to know that would play a role in deciding this one.
So when Redick gave pump fake to Barnes after coming around a screen at the top of the key, Barnes went flying, knowing he had to worry about the sharp shooter. Redick clamly dribbled to the side and pulled up for...
Tomorrow afternoon at 3:30 p.m. EST, the Magic will square off against the current number one team in the league, the Los Angeles Clippers. This will be the two teams' first meeting of the season. The Clippers are looking to extend their franchise-record home winning streak to 14, part of a larger winning streak that has culminated in 20 wins in just 22 games. On the other hand...
J.J. Redick is having a career-year for the Magic.
The streak has finally ended! The Orlando Magic (13-23) beat the Los Angeles Clippers (28-9) in an exciting upset Saturday afternoon with a final score of 104-101. The Clippers entered the game tied with the Thunder for the best record in the league, and left it having failed to beat the slumpingest (it's my blog, I'll make up words if I want to) in the entire league.

That was the number nobody on the Magic specifically talked about following Wednesday's loss to the Nuggets. Jameer Nelson opened up his postgame comments saying he was not going to talk about the foul disparity. Jacque Vaughn deadpanned he was going to talk to George Karl and his staff about learning some of the defensive schemes he used in the game to implement with...
As late night host Jimmy Kimmel moved officially to 11:35 this week, he lined up some big name guests to appear on his new time slot.For the final show of his week, Clippers forward Blake Griffin and Chris Paul stopped by to talk about the ongoing NBA season.One of the highlights of the interview was Kimmel showing off some of the sleep prank photos taken on the team plane:
Whenever there are athletes that appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live, you know it’s going to be something interesting to see. Los Angeles Clippers teammates and “Lob City” producers Blake Griffin and Chris Paul appeared on the show Thursday and had a lot of interesting things to share.
They talked about their huge winning-streak they were coming off of, Lamar Odom‘s favorite...
