While Los Angeles may be "Lob City" with Chris Paul throwing oops to high flyers like Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, perhaps the best lob of the early NBA season came tonight from Rudy Fernandez of the Denver Nuggets. Fernandez had quite the journey this offseason to Denver from Real Madrid via Dallas, but could turn out to be a solid addition for the high powered Nuggets. Check out this highlight as Rudy throws a no look, over the back of his head alley oop to rookie Kenny Faried for the jam. The basket also doubled as Faried's first hoop in a Nuggets uniform as Denver routed Sacramento 110-83. It was on the same court back in March where Faried and his Morehead State team upset Louisville thanks to another great highlight.
BEST OF MAXIM
Oh boy, the Kings are in town! I figure something along those lines must’ve crossed each Nugget’s mind prior to this evening’s game, because a visit from Sacramento has been synonymous with showtime lately.
Coming into tonight’s contest, the Queens ranked 29th in the league in points allowed… and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. These guys had surrendered...
The Nuggets are catching breaks like Rudy Fernandez alley-oops.
Al Harrington scored 15 points, Rudy Fernandez had 12 points to go with eight assists, and the Denver Nuggets won their third straight by beating the Sacramento Kings 110-83 Wednesday night.

LOS ANGELES — “I actually feel like I’m cheating when I play in my shoe,” Chris Paul said, holding aloft his latest signature kick, the Jordan CP3.V.
Paul was speaking this afternoon to a crowd of media gathered in downtown Los Angeles at the Cooper Tower. Jordan Brand transformed an empty loft space atop the building into a temporary showroom...
Over the years the Los Angeles Clipper have been the worst pro sports franchises in all of sports. Both in terms of record, moves of management and some much more. This pre season the Clippers made a trade that showed they were committed to winning for once.
They traded away a handful of players to the New Orleans Hornets in return for superstar point guard Chris Paul...
It’s been quite a good new NBA season for the Los Angeles Clippers. They already boasted one of the brightest young frontcourts in the league with Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan and things only got better when the stole all-star point guard Chris Paul away from their Staples Center co-tenants the Los Angeles Lakers.
The move instantly made the Clippers relevant...
The likes of Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan are benefiting from the calming presence of Chris Paul and the savvy of Chauncey Billups, who have preached the need for steady progress.The likes of Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan are benefiting from the calming presence of Chris Paul and the savvy of Chauncey Billups, who have preached the need for steady progress.
Blake Griffin had 22 points and nine assists before sitting out most of the fourth quarter, Chris Paul added 20 points and 10 assists, and the Los Angeles Clippers cruised to a 117-89 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night. Paul shot 9 for 14 and had three steals, extending his streak to 14 consecutive games with at least one.
Ever since Chris Paul became a member of the Los Angeles Clippers, the name "Lob City" has been the top meme of the 2011-12 NBA season. The moniker promises visions of basketballular delight on the level of gumdrop forests and marshmallow clouds. What we've seen from the Clippers so far this season has been a work in progress, but the name persists nonetheless. Once...
Chris Paul visited the Jimmy Kimmel show this week, and handled all of Jimmy’s jabs about the Clippers’ lack of success in the past—and his snide remarks about CP3 preferring the Lakers. He also talked about how he’s living, his recent marriage and of course, hoops.

After years of futility, the new-look Los Angeles Clippers are suddenly anything but lacking in confidence.
The same can't be said for the Milwaukee Bucks, who let another potential win slip away their last time out.
The Clippers look for an 11th victory in 12 home meetings with a Bucks team hoping to avoid opening 0-5 on the road for the first time in seven seasons Saturday...
