Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
There was a time not too long ago when 22 wins constituted a season’s haul for the Clippers. They already have that many — and it’s not even the new year. They haven’t lost since Nov. 26, when they dropped a home decision to the New Orleans Hornets. That was the Clippers’ fourth straight loss and they were a ho-hum 8-6 after that game. Now they are rolling. Blake Griffin is averaging 18.1 points and 8.8 rebounds a game, while Chris Paul trails only Rajon Rondo in assists, and Jamal Crawford is the Microwave off a deep and productive bench that also features ex-Lakers Lamar Odom and Matt Barnes. The Clippers own the league’s best differential, in part because they are playing championship-caliber defense. They allow 91.9 points a game, third fewest in the league, and hold opponents to 42.7 percent shooting, second in the

Magic Johnson, who played a more than integral role in the "Showtime" Lakers teams of the 1980s, believes that the Clippers are the team that currently deserves that moniker.
Actor/comedian Marlon Wayans had fun clowning around behind Billy Crystal as he was chatting with NBA analysts Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy during the Los Angeles Clippers-Denver Nuggets game at the Staples Center on Christmas Day.
Wayans started out by making a series of funny faces behind Crystal, and then later stepped it up by clapping his feet right behind Crystal's...

Thus far, Chris Paul has dished out over 5,000 assists since he was drafted by the New Orleans Hornets in 2005. So it’s only right that for once Paul was on the other end of an assist after receiving a huge shipment of sneakers from Jordan Brand. The shipment most notably included the Air Jordan 1 “Knicks”, Air Jordan 1 “Bulls”, Air Jordan 13 “Bred”, Air Jordan...
The Clippers took on the Celtics Thursday night and pretty much busted the game wide open in the first quarter, and never looked back to secure their 15th win in a row. As the greater show in LA grows, so do the celebs courtside. Thursday night’s game was no exception, with teen heart throb Justin [...]

As this wonderful Christmas Day comes to an end, let us remember the time that Denver Nuggets’ Danilo Gallinari looked like he punched the Clippers’ Blake...
Tweet In the first half of the Denver Nuggets-Los Angeles Clippers game that was jam-packed with highlights and dunks. It was a non-dunk that had the crowd oohing. Midway through the second quarter, Clippers guard Jamal Crawford was at the front of a fast-break. Andre Miller of the Nuggets stood in front of him defensively. [...]
No one's rushing to anoint the Los Angeles Clippers, who at 22-6 own the NBA's best record. They're not exactly impressed with themselves, either - despite a franchise-record 14-game winning streak.
''It is still early in the season and we have a lot to prove to the rest of the league,'' Matt Barnes said after he helped the Clippers' reserves outscore...
The Clippers put on a show Tuesday night in a win against the Nuggets – first with a shake & bake crossover from Jamal Crawford and later as Ronny Turiaf posterized JaVale McGee:
Jamal Crawford led a dominant performance by the Los Angeles reserves with 22 points and the Clippers defeated the Denver Nuggets 112-100 on Tuesday night, extending their franchise-record winning streak to 14 games.
Matt Barnes added 20 points - one off his season high - as the bench outscored the Clippers starters 64-48 in claiming the NBA's best record at 22-6, one win better...
On Thursday night the Celtics started out their three game road trip against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Celtics come in off a blowout win on Christmas day against the Nets in which the team was firing on all cylinders. The Clippers own the league's best record at 22-6 and had a 14 game winning streak coming into the night. The Celtics looked to start off their trip ending...
The Boston Celtics were soundly trounced by 29 points at the hands of the Clippers in Los Angeles on Thursday. The win extends the Clippers’ franchise record streak to 15 games while dropping the Celtics back to the .500 mark. While few will compare this team to the 1972 Los Angeles Lakers who won an [...]
For Christmas, at least, the Celtics played well. Jared Sullinger solidified himself as my hero, Rajon Rondo continued to show more aggression as a scorer, Gerald Wallace may or may not have wanted to brawl, Deron Williams (and Joe Johnson) used to be a lot better, and I don’t know if I said this before, but Sullinger’s my hero.I would write more, but I’m going to see Les Miserables...
