Portland Trail Blazers
Every morning, we will give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: Statement made
Los Angeles is a two-team town. California is a four-team state.
Only one team is at the top of that mountain. Only one team right now looks like a championship-caliber team. Only one of these teams looks serious.
Yes, that would be the Clippers. It still feels weird to say that. But the Clippers dismantled their two biggest rivals in the Pacific Division at home in back-to-back nights. That is a statement of sorts. It is a statement that the Pacific Division is theirs.
And this was quite a statement.
Golden State got beat up pretty bad. The Clippers defeated the Warriors 115-89. They now have a four-game lead over the Warriors for first place. And they are pretty well established now as the top dog in the West.
Los Angeles scored 35 points in the first quarter and had a 35-12 lead after 12 minutes. The Clippers scored 104 points through three...

Tweet Friday night featured a matchup of Los Angeles’ NBA squads, the Lakers and the Clippers. The Clippers have become known for their high-flying dunks lately, but Friday it was Kobe Bryant who brought the house down early: Not bad for an “old” man. Chris Paul should have ducked. -ALR
Mark Jackson and the Golden State Warriors have been a pleasant surprise this season as a Western Conference upstart. One glowing statistic was the Warriors being 2-0 against the Clippers this season.
The Clippers had grown tired of the losses to the Warriors this season and thumped them 115-89 Saturday night. Chris Paul in particular was fired up about the game and wanted the...
Kobe Bryant may have said the Los Angeles Lakers were “old as s—,” but his 34-year-old body isn’t preventing him from making athletic plays. The Black Mamba stole a pass from Chris Paul and then dunked on the Clippers point guard to make a statement early in Friday’s game at Staples Center.
We see dominant plays like that on a fairly regular basis, but when you consider...
Chris Paul had 27 points and nine assists, Blake Griffin added 20 points and the Los Angeles Clippers set a franchise record with their 12th straight home victory, 115-89 over the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night.

Without leading reserve Jamal Crawford, sidelined by a sore foot suffered Tuesday in their win streak-snapping loss at Denver, the Clippers turned to their two...
LOS ANGELES It's not about the Lakers anymore. There might still be a rivalry a battle to stake a claim to LA but the Clippers look at themselves from a different angle, a different standard.
They beat the Lakers 107-102 Friday night at Staples Center and ended a two-game losing streak. The fact it was their co-tenant they beat seemed less important than proving they could...
Kobe Bryant steals, dunks on Chris Paul.
LA 107, Los Angeles 102
