3/25/15: As has been mentioned several times before, Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers was not happy that DeAndre Jordan was overlooked for the All-Star Game this season. Jordan is set to be a free agent once the season is over and has put up career numbers. Jordan could take the easy one year contract with the expectation that the salary cap will grow significantly for the 2016-17 season, but says that he will not be greedy. He wants to sign a long-term deal and 'get it over with'. The Clippers would be wise to resign him and structure the contract to go with the big salary cap jump.
3/18/15: It was only a few weeks ago that Clippers head coach Doc Rivers was loudly complaining that big man DeAndre Jordan was left off of the Western Conference All-Star roster (though there were some pretty strong names ahead of him on the list). If anyone used the argument that Jordan cannot do it all, well that argument is now moot. Jordan hit his first career three-pointer last weeks when the Clippers visited the Dallas Mavericks. That trey was seven years and eight attempts in the making, and everyone knew it was good the moment it left his hands.
3/11/15: The Clippers missed out on two big points in the standings last week thanks to a huge mental mistake by DeAndre Jordan. Guard Chris Paul missed a game winning shot with under two seconds remaining and Jordan grabbed the rebound and was not covered by and Trail Blazers defenders. However, Jordan must have thought the game was over because he did not follow through with a sure bucket. That allowed the clock to expire with a tie score in regulation. Unfortunately for the Clippers, the Blazers won in overtime 98-93. Every win is a big one with the season winding down, and this may haunt the team down the road.
3/4/15: There are a lot of things to like about the Los Angeles Clippers these days. The team has a great top six players, and those guys can win a lot of basketball games. The knock on the team is that they lack depth. Fortunately for them, basketball, particularly playoff basketball is not as reliant on depth as every other sport. The Clippers tried to get some bench depth by signing guys were bought out of their contracts. That worked last season, but not this year. Josh Smith and Kendrick Perkins chose other destinations, going to Houston and Cleveland, respectively.
2/25/15: The Clippers acquiring Austin Rivers a few weeks ago was a minor transaction, most people ignored the move. The only real significance it had was that Austin would be the first player to play for his father, head coach Doc Rivers in NBA history. That is a nice trivia question, but not much significance on the court. However, Austin scored a career high 28 points last Saturday in the Clippers 126-99 rout of the Sacramento Kings. No one expects Austin Rivers to take Chris Paul's place in the lineup, but it is reassuring to know that they have a serviceable guard on the bench if needed.
2/18/15: Sometimes in sports, fans, coaches and/or the media use superlatives in trying to describe a situation. This is not one of those times when an incident causes everyone to put things, including sports, into perspective. This is another example of over-embellishment. Clippers head coach Doc Rivers referred to DeAndre Jordan not making the All Star game 'a travesty'. While Jordan is certainly a great player and being snubbed is a disappointment, 'travesty' seems like a stretch. At least Doc cares enough for his players to comment, but he could keep it within reason and not insist that it is a great injustice in any way.
2/11/15: Chris Paul of the L.A. Clippers is in the news these days, but not for great play or getting an invite to the All Star Game. He was given a technical foul by referee Lauren Holtkamp, and he thought it was an unwarranted T. His post-game comments drew the ire of social media tough guys who claimed he made a sexist remark. Paul maintains that he was complaining about the referee, with no regard to gender. Whether this should be an issue or not is up to individual beliefs. The only real truth is that there is a controversy afoot and the referees union is not happy about it.
2/5/15: Hockey fans should love the Clippers Matt Barnes. He plays like a hockey player and is not afraid to be physical in a league that is getting decidedly more finesse-oriented. But his style of play and words can get him into trouble. He was fined $25,000 last week for "directing inappropriate language toward a fan". Getting into it with a heckler will never serve a player well. However, Barnes claims that he was fined for directing his ire toward Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver. Video of the incident indicates that it was toward a fan, though. In any case, Barnes is great to watch. Especially if you like hockey.
1/28/15: Whether or not anyone agrees with him, Charles Barkley seems to have an opinion on everything and does not mind sharing it. His latest is his belief that Clippers guard Chris Paul does not deserve to be an All Star, at least not this year. Barkley said that Paul is the best leader in the NBA, but the West is so deep in great guards that Paul does not make his cut. Paul is having another fine year, averaging 17.3 points and 9.8 assists per game. He has made the last seven All Star Games and played in six of them.
1/21/15: The Los Angeles Clippers finally completed the much-discussed trade that brought Austin Rivers to the team. It is significant in that Austin is the son of Clippers head coach and vice president of basketball operations Doc Rivers. It is the first time in NBA history that a son has actually played for his father. Austin Rivers is in his third season and will function primarily as a reserve player, but that will give him the chance to learn under all-star guard Chris Paul and fellow Duke player J.J. Reddick. Austin is averaging about 21 minutes and just under 7 points per game this season, so maybe this will help his development.
1/14/15: The Clippers are one of the better teams in the West and currently hold the sixth spot in the playoff rankings - but they have had a tough time catching up or even keeping pace with the Golden State Warriors this season. Part of that is due to a lack of depth at point guard. There is not much there behind Chris Paul. So the Clippers are in discussions with the Boston Celtics to bring in Austin Rivers (assuming he is traded to the Celtics from New Orleans). That would provide the Clippers with depth at point guard and reunite Austin with his father, head coach Doc Rivers.
1/7/15: There are some seriously high expectations on the L.A. Clippers this season. They have a great roster and well-respected coach, so should be near the top of the league in wins. That they have 22 wins out of 33 games is usually impressive, though that is good only for sixth in the hyper-competitive Western Conference. So, naturally, the media suggests that they are underachieving and has set out to determine why. One report posits the idea that the players do not get along with each other. Another thought is that they have still won two-thirds of the games and that is in a highly talented conference.
12/3/14: The Los Angeles Clippers continue to improve in the Pacific Division. The team has won four in a row, including wins over the Utah Jazz, Houston Rockets and Detroit Pistons. Blake Griffin has been big recently, including 28 points against the Jazz and 0 points against the Rockets. The Clippers now find themselves in second place, trailing the red-hot Golden State Warriors by three games. Golden State, of course, has been the best team in the league of late, winning nine in a row. The Western Conference is ultra competitive this season, but the Clippers look like they have the roster and coaching to make it into the playoffs.
11/19/14: If the playoffs started now, then the L.A. Clippers would be on the outside looking in. It is not that being a game over .500 is bad, it is jut not good enough in the hyper-competitive Western Conference. It is true that the Clippers are scoring less than last year, but the real problem seems to be their perimeter defense. Against the Spurs, Kawhi Leonard simply overmatched Jamal Crawford all night to the tune of 26 points. But the season is still young and Doc Rivers has time to improve the defense either by coaching or trade. Don't forget, Ron Artest/Metta World Peace/The Panda's Friend says he wants to play again and is available.
11/5/14: Fortunately, it is a new era for the L.A. Clippers. The team turned the corner a few years ago from annual laughingstock to contender - so this is not an on-court change. Steve Ballmer, the new owner and former Microsoft CEO, has the reigns now, and he will be fun to watch. He may even challenge Mark Cuban for the crown. The Clippers won their first game with Ballmer and his son sitting courtside, and Ballmer's excitement and jumping around did not disappoint. Final score: Clipper 93, visiting Oklahoma City 90. It will be a fun season for the Clippers and their fans.
5/25/12 The Los Angeles Clippers wowed a lot of NBA fans this season with the play of Chris Paul and Blake Griffin and the thrill of 'Lob City,' but their season came to an abrupt end on Sunday night with a 102-99 loss to the San Antonio Spurs at the Staples Center. The Clippers were swept 4-0 in their Western Conference semifinals series by the currently unstoppable Spurs juggernaut, but they are a young team with a lot of potential and there is no doubt that they will be back again to make another run at it next season.
5/18/12 The Los Angeles Clippers had no answer for Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and the rest of the San Antonio Spurs in Game 2 as they fell 105-88 and now trail their Western Conference semifinals series 2-0. Blake Griffin scored 20 points for the Clippers and led the team in scoring, however he was closed out of the paint and could only manage a single rebound all night. On Saturday, the series will move to the Staples Center in Los Angeles for Game 3 and the Clippers will look to grab a victory on their home floor and jump back into the series.
5/11/12 The Los Angeles Clippers had an opportunity to close out their first round series with the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 5 but fell 92-80 and will now return to the Staples Center in Los Angeles for a chance to wrap up the series at home in Game 6. Both Blake Griffin and Chris Paul suffered minor injuries in Game 5, but both will likely be on the floor for Game 6, as the Clippers do not want the Grizzlies to force a Game 7 and take the series back to Memphis. The winner of this series will certainly have a tough task in the semifinals, as they will have to face the top-seeded Spurs.
After being down by 27 points with only 8 minutes remaining in the game, the Los Angeles Clippers stunned basketball enthusiasts around the world as they rallied back for a 99-98 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies in the opening game of their Western Conference playoff series. Rudy Gay had a chance to put the game away for the Grizzlies, but missed a jump shot with 0.9 seconds left to seal the victory for Los Angeles. Chris Paul added 14 points and 11 assists for the Clippers, while forward Blake Griffin added 17 points and 7 rebounds. Memphis will look to even the series up on Tuesday.
5/4/12 After one of the more remarkable comebacks in NBA history in Game 1 of their best-of-seven first round series with the Memphis Grizzles, the Los Angeles Clippers fell 105-98 in Game 2 to find the series evened up at 1-1 as they head back home to the Staples Center in Los Angeles for Games 3 and 4 of the series. Chris Paul led the Clippers with 29 points and 6 assists in Game 2, but it wasn't enough to stop the Grizzlies from avenging their heartbreaking Game 1 loss and tying up the series. Now, Blake Griffin and Chris Paul will try to lead the Clippers to a couple of home wins and turn the series back in their favor.
With just a few games left in the NBA season, the Los Angeles Clippers have clinched a playoff berth and will be either the three, four or five seed in the Western Conference. The team sits just a game behind the division leading Lakers and could clinch the division with victories in it's final two games. The team's final game is against the New York Knicks, and while the team has already clinched a playoff spot itself, it is also battling for a higher seed and will be tough competition. Power forward Blake Griffin leads the team, averaging 20.6 points per game on the season.
After finishing 8-2 over their last 10 games, the Los Angeles Clippers find themselves in a tight race for a playoff spot as the shortened season winds down. Currently, they are 1.5 games behind the Lakers and are entrenched as the #4 seed, however Memphis sits only a half game behind them and Dallas, Houston and Denver are all also within striking distance. The Clippers will rely heavily on the likes of Chris Paul, averaging 19.5 points per game and 8.9 assists, to provide them with timely shooting down the stretch. They will also look to Blake Griffin to provide leadership on and off the court. Griffin is averaging 20.7 points and 10.9 rebounds per game. 4/12/12 Although the Los Angeles Lakers have long been the kings of basketball in L.A., the Clippers are rewriting that story as we speak. With a 36-23 record and the 4th spot in the Western Conference, the Clippers sit only a game behind the Lakers in the West's Pacific Division. If they can pass the Lakers in the final week of the season, they will capture their first division title in 42 years. Behind the stellar highlight reel play of Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, the Clippers have burst onto the scene in the Western Conference and look to make a splash come playoff time.
Los Angeles Clippers Tickets - Team History
Los Angeles Clippers tickets allow fans the opportunity to see one of the NBA's youngest franchises. Established as the Buffalo Braves in 1970, the Clippers made the move west, eventually settling in Los Angeles in 1984. The Clippers play their games at The Staples Center and have called the venue home since it opened in 1999. Watch as the Clippers build their legacy and work to bring a world title to L.A.!
With a first selection of the 2009 NBA Draft, the Los Angeles Clippers selected forward Blake Griffin from Oklahoma and traded Zach Randolph to Memphis so Griffin had a position on the starting lineup. In February 4, head coach Mike Dunleavy resigned his position as the head coach and was eventually fired as the General Manager of the Clippers being replaced by Neil Olshey. Although the Clippers did see minor improvement with the duration of the season, the interim Coach Kim Hughes was fired at the end of the season.
With high hopes for the 2011 season with Eric Gordan, Chris Kaman, DeAndre Jordan, Baron Davis, and the #1 selection Blake Griffin, the Clippers ended up getting off to a weak start. Griffin was chosen as a Western Conference Reserve for the NBA All-Star Game. Since Tim Duncan in 1997, Griffin has been the only player to receive this honor as a rookie.
