Every morning, we will give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: Paul, Griffin come alive in final act/quarter
A good piece of music rises and falls like a good story. It climaxes at the end and builds and builds.
Excuse the cliche, but it fits what happend when the Clippers won at EnergySolutions Arena, erasing a 10-point deficit entering the final quarter. Chris Paul came alive with 14 points and nine assists in the game, doing must of the action in the fourth quarter. That included the game-winning basket.
Utah remains a difficult place to play and so any win a team like Los Angeles can get there is still a pretty significant one.
The thing was that Blake Griffin busted out to get this win. Griffin scored a season-high 30 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. More impressively, as Griffin expands his game expands, Griffin shot 11 for 20 from the floor.
Certainly the Clippers showed a lot of grit on the road in trailing most of ...

Jason WhitneyBlake Griffin already has a plethora of poster dunks, so why not add Elton Brand to the group! This game was filled with highlight dunks, like the one Caron Butler had just before Griffin’s dunk that had the crowd buzzing. Blake Griffin actually had another dunk that was very reminiscent of this dunk later in the game. One thing should be noted, Griffin threw a couple...
Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin was dunking all over the Dallas Mavericks during Wednesday night's NBA game at the Staples Center.
In the first quarter, Griffin caught a bounce pass from Chris Paul that was actually deflected by a Mavs defender, but still managed to throw down a powerful left-handed dunk over Elton Brand.
In the third quarter, Paul and Griffin...
In a picture from Complex, Blake Griffin was spotted in Hollywood getting into his Mercedes-Benz. Apparently, this photo is of the Clippers forward getting into his whip after having dinner at a fancy steakhouse with a teammate. One may be asking why this is relevant. The reason for this is because Blake Griffin is sponsored by Kia. Now do those lame, but funny, commercials...
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Blake Griffin scored 30 points, Jamal Crawford added 20 off the bench and the Los Angeles Clippers defeated Utah 105-104 on Monday night to hand the Jazz their first loss at home this season.
Crawford made a pair of free throws late and ex-Clipper Randy Foye countered with a 3-pointer with 1.2 seconds remaining. But Foye's desperation 3 after stealing...

One of the overriding themes in Chris Kaman's years-past time with the Los Angeles Clippers was owner Donald T. Sterling's "Reign Of Error." One of the overriding themes of the Clippers of present-time is Sterling's willingness to maintain happiness for stars like Chris Paul, a free-agent-to-be in the summer of 2013 and a long-time Dallas Mavericks acquisition...

Los Angeles Clippers (10-6) vs. Utah Jazz (9-9)
When it comes to teams straddling the line between the two post, grind-it-out basketball and the stretch-4, spread the floor basketball that has pervaded the NBA, these two teams are in the middle of that spectrum. If the Grizzlies are on one end and the Heat are on the other, the Clippers and Jazz are truly in the middle...
It is a luxury to have two of the best leaders in the NBA on one team. That is exactly what the Clippers have in guards Chris Paul and Chauncey Billups. CP3 was voted by the general managers in 2012 as the best point guard and leader in the NBA - the previous winner of the award - was his current teammate, Chauncey Billups.Billups is the sage voice of reason, usually found in the...
The road is full of potholes, and the Clippers almost fell into one Monday night. If they had, it wouldn't have been too surprising; teams don't go to EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City with big hopes.
The Utah Jazz were one of only three teams still unbeaten at home this season, and they seemed perfectly situated to beat the Clippers. But for all their missteps over...
