Clippers, Awaiting Teodosic’s Return, Host Wizards

Clippers, Awaiting Teodosic’s Return, Host Wizards

Bradley Beal is good at the sports. Something was different on Wednesday when the Clippers faced off against the Minnesota Timberwolves at STAPLES Center: they were only missing three of their starters. Danilo Gallinari struggled in his return from a left glute injury, but at least he was on the court, where he’ll hopefully be able to provide a much-needed scoring punch for the Clippers going forward. They’ll be without star forward Blake Griffin for at least a few more weeks, and starting point guard Patrick Beverley is done for the season following knee surgery, but they Clippers...

Patrick Beverley: I might ‘pop up early’

Patrick Beverley: I might ‘pop up early’

Patrick Beverley has been outspoken on social media since his injury. Today, he gave insight to his rehab progress. Two weeks ago, it was announced that Patrick Beverly would miss the remainder of the season after a knee surgery. Yesterday, it was reported that the Clippers would receive $2.75M in a “disabled player exception. Well, today, Patrick Beverly gave us a more intimate look into his situation: Great. Getting my range back. Super excited. Might pop up early. #Wolverine https://t.co/voOxswmUdK— Patrick Beverley (@patbev21) December 6, 2017 This tweet stood out to me for...

Jamil Wilson, C.J. Williams in Starting Lineup vs Minnesota

Two Clippers getting their first chances in the starting lineup. Doc Rivers, trying to experiment and find a way to win while missing four starters, inserted Jamil Wilson and C.J. Williams into the starting lineup at shooting guard and small forward tonight in Minnesota. With starters Patrick Beverley, Milos Teodosic, Danilo Gallinari, and Blake Griffin all out with various injuries, Doc has been forced to find creative ways to try and compete against teams with much more talent on their rosters. Williams and Wilson are both on two-way contracts with the Clippers and their NBA G-League...

Jazz Find More in Reserve Than Clippers Do, 126-107

Jazz Find More in Reserve Than Clippers Do, 126-107

Both teams are hurt, but Utah had more to fall back on. No Blake Griffin. No Rudy Gobert. No Patrick Beverley. No Rodney Hood. No Milos Teodosic or Danilo Gallinari. No Joe Johnson, Raul Neto, or Dante Exum. So of course we got a shootout. Unfortunately for the Clippers, the Jazz had shooting and playmaking to spare. The Utah Jazz’ superior scoring depth ignited lopsided runs in the third and fourth quarters to earn the victory in a surprisingly offensive game, 126-107. The remaining Clippers played with admirable verve and chemistry, but couldn’t maintain their unexpected...

First Half Update: Austin Rivers Lifts Clippers With 18 Early Points

First Half Update: Austin Rivers Lifts Clippers With 18 Early Points

The Clippers are surviving without Blake Griffin Heading into tonight’s game, I would have expected a very low-scoring contest. The Utah Jazz aren’t a team full of offensive weapons, and they’re without Rudy Gobert, Rodney Hood, and Joe Johnson. The Clippers, a more competent offensive team when healthy, are without most of their firepower as Patrick Beverley, Milos Teodosic, Danilo Gallinari, and Blake Griffin are all sidelined with various injuries. So, I’m pretty surprised to see a 61-61 halftime score. Thankfully, Austin Rivers picked up the load in the first half, scoring 18...

Nobody is Playing Tonight in Clippers-Jazz

Nobody is Playing Tonight in Clippers-Jazz

Everyone is out! Maybe tonight’s game should just be cancelled. The Clippers probably have as much room to complain about injuries as any team that comes to mind—they’re currently missing four starters, including their best player and leading scorer Blake Griffin. Take away their best defender (Patrick Beverley), best passer (Milos Teodosic), and best shooter (Danilo Gallinari), and you see a team that doesn’t have much left—Lou Williams and Austin Rivers, two bench guards, providing all of the offense, while a disillusioned DeAndre Jordan anchors a defense. Surrounding those...

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

Lakers basketball returns! The Los Angeles Lakers were gifted a four-day layoff following their loss to the Sacramento Kings, providing the entire team a chance to reboot early in the season. We’ll get to see what that opportunity means to their success on the court when they get back to the grind Monday night as the visiting team against the LA Clippers. The Clippers’ hot start, winning their first four games of the year, hit a few huge bumps already. They’ve since lost 11 of their last 15 games, are without Milos Teodosic, Danilo Gallinari and Patrick Beverley, and look like a...

Locked on Clippers 11/27/2017—Recent Victories and Potential Roster Moves

The Clippers are looking for their third straight win. In today’s episode of the Locked on Clippers podcast, I looked at the Clippers’ last two victories within the scope of a current 5-game stretch against weak teams. A few more victories could help them turn their season around. I also briefly examined some possibilities for the Clippers to make roster upgrades at the guard positions with Patrick Beverley out for the season.

TLTJTP: To Tank or Not to Tank?

TLTJTP: To Tank or Not to Tank?

Robert and Shapan discuss a few topics, from recent Ws to that T word. The Clippers are in a weird spot right now. Patrick Beverley is out for the season and two other starters are currently injured, they're well under .500, but they're in a weak spot in the schedule. What would be best for this Clipper team going forward? What do we think of all these DeAndre Jordan rumors? Should this team consider tanking or making a run for a bottom seed out West? Without Beverley, is this realistically a playoff team even with full health otherwise? Is Blake Griffin secretly clutch? These questions...

Game Preview: Clippers Look To End Road Trip With a Win in Sacramento

A rare game against a team below L.A. in the standings. The Big Picture: The Clippers are in a rough spot. Their starting point guard, Patrick Beverley, will miss the rest of the season after knee surgery earlier this week, and their starting shooting guard and best passer, Milos Teodosic, remains out indefinitely with a tricky foot injury that he suffered in the team’s second game of the season. That has forced backup guards Austin Rivers and Lou Williams, who are both capable rotation players, into large roles that have left them overworked and inefficient. Rookie guards Jawun Evans...

Clippers are unlikely to sign replacement for injured Patrick Beverley

The Los Angeles Clippers have lost guard Patrick Beverley for the remainder of the season. He was traded to the Clippers as part of the Chris Paul trade with the Houston Rockets. Patrick Beverley is known for his defensive prowess, but the @LAClippers have actually missed him most on the offensive end of the floor. Theyre over 9 points per 100 possessions better offensively with Beverley on than when hes been off. pic.twitter.com/58270FkZN2 — ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) November 22, 2017 Beverley, 29, will be sidelined after having surgery on his right knee and has an expected...

Patrick Beverley Just Had Surgery On His Right Knee, Will Be Out Indefinitely

Patrick Beverley Just Had Surgery On His Right Knee, Will Be Out Indefinitely

This is very bad The Clippers’ hellish season continues, as Adrian Wojnarowski reported this morning that Patrick Beverley had surgery on his right knee back in Los Angeles, and is expected to miss a “significant amount of time”. Beverley missed five games with soreness in his right knee before returning against the Knicks Monday. It is currently unclear whether he needed surgery the whole time, or came back to soon and aggravated the injury, necessitating the surgery. Regardless, Beverley is out indefinitely, and will be joining fellow starting guard Milos Teodosic in street clothes...

Knicks Send Clippers to Ninth Straight Loss, 107-85

Knicks Send Clippers to Ninth Straight Loss, 107-85

Patrick Beverley returned but the Clippers still sucked. The Clippers’ offense is streaky. It’s prone to ponderousness. Passing activity ceases for long stretches and the players revert to unproductive hero-ball. These are negative qualities. But when added to the Clippers’ unwillingness or inability (or whatever) to play something resembling effective defense, the resulting combination is fatal. That’s how you lose nine in a row. The Clippers couldn’t muster the defense necessary to compensate for their periods of offensive impotence, and the Knicks ran away with victory,...
