Thursday Night Second Half Double Feature Thread!

Clips bag a win in Minny and now the Lakers go up against the Heat in Staples. Stick around and discuss Kobe versus Lebron.

Sam Amick on Eric Bledsoe

Sam Amick notices Eric Bledsoe and likes what he sees.

Chris Paul Out Tonight

Chris Paul out for Rockets game.

Howard says Lakers 'have to play like we like each other'

We've all heard this quote by now, but this is the source. Ramona Shelburne's article features her interview with DH. I guess I'm stubbornly trying to keep fanshots alive. Even way down here under all the flotsam and jetsam.

Arnovitz on the Clippers' Defense

We love it when Kevin Arnovitz writes about the Clips. This is classic KA on precisely WHY the team has improved so much on defense this year.

The NY Times on the Strange Case of Eric Bledsoe

Even Beckley Mason provides no new information, it's nice to get noticed by the NY Times... even if it's because our junior point guard is playing in a lackluster fashion.

KA on the Seventeenth

There's a nugget about why Caron Butler hit all those threes last night. I miss KA's daily X and O's. "In the pick-and-roll sets, initially [Utah] was blitzing Chris [Paul] and Blake [Griffin] was getting the ball," Butler said. "[Utah] was sending a man off the top or from the baseline, and that's what made me so wide open on the weakside."

Nice Article on Clips in the New York Times

Interesting that the team pretty much admits that Chris Paul was the fourth member of front office this summer.

Paul and Griffin Bust Kings for an Even Dozen

Chris Paul and Blake Griffin Break Down Kings for Twelve in a Row

Zach Lowe on Clipper Trade Possibilities

Zach Lowe at Grantland looks at some possible trade scenarios involving the Clippers.


Stein's Power Rankings: Clips at Number Two...

They're here (I guess this means even I am abandoning the fanshots, they're on the wrong side of the page and I have to fight through too much stuff to get there... and no one seems to go down...

Paul and Griffin conserving energy - Markazi

Laker fan Arash Markazi put up this pretty interesting post about CP3 and Big Red sitting out fourth quarters.

Clippers looking for a better outcome on this four-game trip -

Lisa Dillman on the impending road trip. Nice to see reallisa back on the scene.

Clips smother Kings, 116-81

I mean smother. They put a pillow over the Kings collective head and that was that.

Nets Give Clips Black Eye on Black Friday

Clippers visit Nets in Brooklyn for the very first time and get a black eye on black Friday.

Clips Hit the Road... Going Where?

The LA Clippers are about to leave on on a brief but tough road trip. Where will we be a week from now?

McMillan to Lakers as Assistant?

If this happens I will be really annoyed. They'd have McMillan's scowl and defensive mind and D'Antoni's player-friendly vibe and offensive skills on one team. Of course they're still stuck with the same thin roster, but...

Phil Jackson's Return from the Grave

Clipper fans live in a Laker World.

Lakers Show Mike Brown the Door...

LA Lakers dump Mike Brown. D'Antoni rumors.

Final Score: Clips Smoke Blazers, 103-90

Clippers beat down Blazers with their deep bench in first game away from Staples Center. 103-90

Final Score: Dubs Drub Clips, 113-110

Clips cut Travis Leslie

Clips let go of Travis Leslie, a second-year, second round draft pick. Roster stands at fourteen.

Clips win-loss predictions. What's yours?

Where will the Clippers finish this year. A fan's prediction.

Grant Hill to Miss at Least Two Weeks

Grant Hill to Miss at Least Two Weeks with bone bruise. Two many players not enough minutes. A problem vanishes before it appears.

Woike on Chris Paul's Thumb

He wears a brace in practice. He's not all there yet.

Elliott on Crawford: Working on his shot

Helene Elliott checks in with this small bit on Jamal Crawford coming in early, working on his shot, for the first time ever. In regard to this Clipper team Crawford says, the sky's the limit.

2012-2013 Clipper Player Previews: Lamar Odom

Lamar Odom originally came to the LA Clippers as a first round pick in the 1999 draft. Clipper fans were delighted by this charming, flexible big man with the Elvis grin. But, after 4 years, injuries, and a drug suspension, Elvis left the building...

2012-2013 Clipper Player Previews: Matt Barnes

Matt Barnes began his NBA career as a Clipper, but has spent the last two seasons playing for the enemy. He returns to the Clippers this season, but can he win back the hearts of Clipper fans?

The New SB Nation Format... Can we handle it?

Okay, after five days of the new site, let's evaluate: The old site was great wasn't it? Wasn't it? I mean, I knew where everything was and I could navigate it in my bare feet! It was perfect. So...
