Another day, another high-light real dunk by Los Angeles Clipper Blake Griffin. Griffin, that best dunker in the league, is making a routine of having a high-light real dunk about once every week. Last night was no different as Griffin had a monster dunk against the Denver Nuggets.
This is how the play broke down. Griffin set a pick for Chris Paul at the free throw...
The Clippers are joining the storied tradition of growing playoff beards to build team unity for the postseason. Chris Paul says the players were discussing ideas for what they should do and they thought about growing their hair out. They ran into some trouble there because of the bald players like Chauncey Billups, so they settled on beards.
Here are some of the quirky highlights...
When the Nuggets and Clippers meet conventional wisdom suggets that Blake Griffin and Kenneth Faried will eventually cross paths somewhere above the rim. Last night, the Nuggets and Clippers met, and Griffin and Faried did indeed cross paths in the stratosphere–twice, actually. On the first occasion, Faried chased Griffin down on a one-on-none fast break and prevented the monster...

PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Suns now have provided enough material for us to pull dangerously close to acknowledgment of the season's first overstatement game.
By dropping the Los Angeles Clippers, 93-90, in a Thursday-night bar fight at U.S. Airways Center, the Suns may have saved their postseason hopes ... well, for now.
With three tricky games still separating them from a playoff...
The Suns did themselves a big favor by snapping the Clippers’ five-game win streak (93-90), and they did it by playing an uncharacteristically-physical style of basketball. After allowing Los Angeles to score 29 points in the opening quarter, Phoenix held them to 61 over the next three, including 16 in the second and 19 in the fourth. Blake Griffin had been dominant in the early...
