5 things: Grizzlies grind Clippers' offense to a halt

Video: Austin Rivers goes for a career high 28 points

When Danny Ainge traded Austin Rivers to Doc Rivers and the Clippers for a 2nd round pick, basically all of the NBA, the media, and fans gave Ainge props for fleecing Doc. Many people mocked Doc for being a clueless GM and practicing nepotism. Doesn't seem like the Clippers are regretting giving up a pretty much useless future late 2nd rounder for the younger Rivers. Austin has improved...

WWE Diva Lana and the Clippers are Made for Each Other

We know WWE Diva Lana hates most American things, but there’s one thing in the states she doesn’t mind—the Los Angeles Clippers. She’s been spotted at Clippers games a number of times and it’s safe to assume that she probably enjoys the product on the court. It seems like an odd pairing considering real world Lana (CJ Perry) is from Gainesville (and might be an Orlando...

The argument could be made that a good five to seven West teams could potentially win the conference...

The Cleveland Cavaliers routed the visiting Los Angeles Clippers 105-94 Thursday night, a final score that doesn't indicate the lopsidedness of the game that saw the Cavs lead by 32 points in the third quarter, enough that LeBron James and Kevin Love had the luxury of sitting out the final frame to rest.
