Last night, the Los Angeles Clippers destroyed the Golden State Warriors to tie up their first round series. The game never seemed close, and it’s games like this that make the Clippers look like serious title contenders. Without Andrew Bogut in the lineup, Jermaine O’Neal has suddenly found himself playing a big role for the Warriors. While Mark Jackson often will play David...

Your Morning Dump..Where Chris Herren’s A Marathon Man

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. With only 10 weeks to prepare for the marathon to begin with, Herren, who said he ran only when he was being punished by a coach, didn’t have much time to build endurance for the 26.2-mile trek. The weather didn’t...

NBA Playoff Preview

"My ***** is about thaaaaaaaaat big.  Give or take a foot."So the NBA playoffs are officially underway.  There was a request last week by Commenter Larry for some HOT NBA playoff TAEKS and since Larry most likely gets bossed around at home, I figured I would let him have his way for once.  Judging by the way Mrs. Ward comments, I'm stunned she didn't force Larry...

Clippers shift momentum with big Game 2 win

LOS ANGELES -- The Clippers didn't just erase the horrific memory of Game 1, they smothered it. Monday night, they attacked. They were so relentless on defense and offense that by the midway point of the third quarter, the score no longer mattered. They simply kept pushing, from starters to reserves, from the opening tip to the final buzzer. "We told them before the game...

Doc Rivers and Jermaine O'Neal get into it during game 2

Doc Rivers once called Jermaine O'Neal training camp MVP when he was with Boston. Time has passed, and Doc Rivers is out west, and so is O'Neal. Doc Rivers seemed to be upset that O'Neal was playing some hard defense on his precious Blake Griffin. Who went off for 35 in the Clippers 138-98 win over Golden State. Some point to Doc being upset with Jermaine about being...

VIDEO: Clippers tie red and blue balloons to Lakers statues ahead of Game 2 versus Warriors

PHOTO: Mark Medina Last month, we posted a photo of two immature Clipper fans who took a pic of themselves flipping off the Chick Hearn statue outside Staples Center. Now, the Los Angeles Clippers themselves have gotten involved. No, they’re not flipping off Chick – instead, they’ve tied red and blue (Clipper color) balloons to the statue of the legendary announcer. They...

Game 2 a must-win for Clippers vs. Warriors

PLAYA VISTA, Calif. -- Two weeks before the playoffs began, Clippers coach Doc Rivers warned his players that they probably would lose a game at home. He just didn't think it would happen this quickly. No one did, of course, but now the Clippers are down 1-0 in the best-of-7 first-round Western Conference series against the Golden State Warriors. That makes Game 2 on Monday night...

Blake Griffin spills water on fan

The other team I follow is Golden State. It means more that the Dubs are going up against Doc Rivers Clippers. Old friend Jermaine O'neal was big for the Warriors Saturday. Especially with Bogut out. Blake Griffin was in foul trouble all day, and after he fouled out. Blake showed some signs of being an asshole.

5 things: Warriors stun Clippers in Game 1

LOS ANGELES -- With the Clippers down by three with 11 seconds left and the game's fate still undecided, Chris Paul stepped to the charity stripe for two free throws. As a 85.7 percent free-throw shooter and notable clutch performer, it was assumed Paul would make both freebies. Clank. He missed the first one. Clank again. He missed the second one. It was that kind of day for...

Two days after Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson called out Clippers star Blake Griffin for flopping and playing out of control, L.A. coach Doc Rivers said he wants Griffin to keep doing what he's been doing this season, even if that includes flopping.

NBA Playoffs: Golden State Warriors vs. Los Angeles Clippers

In a matchup for the battle of California, the upstart Golden State Warriors are taking on the ‘Lob City’ Los Angeles Clippers. This series has a lot of bad blood in it that goes all the way back to the regular season. For me this series falls on the shoulders of the head coaches for both teams, Doc Rivers and Mark Jackson. For Rivers, this is his first season with the Clippers...
