Blake Griffin Says Damian Lillard Regularly Gets Snubbed for All-Star Game

Blake Griffin Says Damian Lillard Regularly Gets Snubbed for All-Star Game

Trail Blazers fans aren’t the only ones who think Lillard gets ignored for the NBA’s showcase game. In the context of a wide-ranging interview with Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated that covered subjects such as racial justice, injuries, and former owner Donald Sterling, Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin dropped an opinion about Damian Lillard’s extended absence from the NBA All-Star Game. When asked if making the 2018 All-Star roster in Los Angeles was a goal for the season, Griffin responded: I wouldn’t say it’s a big thing in my mind. Being healthy, playing well and...

Karl-Anthony Towns, Blake Griffin, and Nikola Mirotic Headline NBA Trade Rumors

With the trade deadline less than a month away, trade rumors are starting to heat up around the league. This Monday will mark the day when NBA players who signed new contracts during the offseason can officially be traded. Throw in an earlier than usual Feb. 8 trade deadline, and it’s no surprise that rumors around the league have started to heat up. A potential mega-trade involving the Timberwolves’ Karl-Anthony Towns and Clippers’ Blake Griffin, reported by Basketball Insider’s Michael Scotto on Twitter, headlines this week’s batch of rumors: Sources: The Los Angeles Clippers...

Jusuf Nurkic NBA King of Drawing Flagrant Fouls

Jusuf Nurkic NBA King of Drawing Flagrant Fouls

Chris Herring of FiveThirtyEight explains why Nurkic’s face takes such a beating. Every player who makes it to the NBA has talent. Portland Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic stands at seven feet, has a reasonably good jump shot, and can spin in the post fast as a whip. As Chris Herring of FiveThirtyEight points out, the Bosnian standout has one other bona fide skill: getting his face whacked. Nurkic accounts for almost 10% of flagrant fouls drawn in the NBA this season, all by himself. If the current rate continues, he will dethrone Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin, who owns the...

Lakers vs. Clippers: Start time, TV schedule and game preview

Lakers vs. Clippers: Start time, TV schedule and game preview

The Lakers are ailing, and the Clippers should be getting a big boost with the return of Blake. The Los Angeles Lakers find themselves back in the gutter of a losing streak, dropping four games in a row to match their longest stint without a win of the season. The Lakers are expected to be without Lonzo Ball once again, while the LA Clippers have to be thrilled that Blake Griffin is ready to return after missing a month with a sprained MCL. Griffin, coincidentally, has been out since the last time these two teams met. Blake had his night cut early after suffering the knee injury, but the...

Game thread: Rockets vs. Clippers

Houston looks to get back in the win column tonight against the Clippers. Well, with the win streak over, it’s a perfect time for the Rockets to start another one, as they take on a shorthanded Clippers squad in the final contest of a seven-game home stand. The Clips are without Patrick Beverley, Blake Griffin, Danilo Gallinari and Wesley Johnson, meaning the majority of their regular starting lineup is not playing. The Rockets, however, are almost matching that, with Chris Paul, Clint Capela, and Luc Mbah a Moute also sitting. It’s probably a wise move with a Christmas Day National TV...

Houston Rockets vs. Los Angeles Clippers game preview

I miss Patrick Beverley. It’s a shame that he’s injured and will miss the rest of the season. The Rockets will also not face Blake Griffin, Wesley Johnson, or Danilo Gallinari. How injured are the Clippers? They are playing guys I’ve never heard of. I write previews all the time. I know most of the end-of-the-bench guys in the NBA from their time in college or as journeymen around the league. Some guy named C.J. Williams started for them the other night against Phoenix. He’s a 27-year-old rookie. That would be crazy enough, except they have a second 27-year-old rookie starter...
