5 things: Crawford catches fire in the fourth

Clippers coach Doc Rivers' gamble paid off during Monday night's 102-98 comeback win over the Denver Nuggets. Instead of sticking with his starters -- a lineup that has played over 250 more minutes than any other lineup in the NBA, and to great success -- down the stretch, Rivers decided to keep Jamal Crawford in for J.J. Redick.  On the surface, that's not an atypical move. Crawford...

DeAndre Jordan is having another impressive season, but at the end of close Clippers games, Doc Rivers is faced with the question of leaving him in the game or sitting him.

The NBA product, at times, can be tough enough to watch. Add intentional fouling to the equation and a normal 15 minute quarter can seem like it lasts an eternity. Other than with two minutes remaining in the quarter, the league has no rule discouraging the act of fouling players on purpose.Coach Brad Stevens had this to say Monday regarding the issue, before his team took on the...

Work in progress: Are Clippers running out of time to fix issues?

There aren't many teams in the NBA that are dissected more -- both good and bad -- than the Los Angeles Clippers. 'Polarizing' might be a better way of describing the perception of this 2014-15 Clippers squad. Despite sitting with 28 wins through 42 games, good for sixth place in the Western Conference, not everyone is sold on the construction of this Clippers team. The honus for...

Ainge with the sneaky genius move of trading Austin Rivers to the team whose 1st rounder we own

Talk about a trojan horse move. The Celtics own the Clippers 1st rounder this year due to allowing Doc Rivers to coach in L.A. The pick shouldn't end up being all that great, since the Clippers are a stacked team (and Doc is a good coach), but it's still a 1st rounder. Besides acquiring a 2nd rounder for a player the Celtics didn't want in Austin Rivers, the added bonus of the trade...
