Hours after owner Donald Sterling was banned from the NBA for life, the Los Angeles Clippers returned to an energized Staples Center and beat the Golden State Warriors 113-103 on Tuesday night to take a 3-2 lead in their first-round playoff series.
Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers would prefer to be talking about how well Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan have played against the Golden State Warriors. Or how his team has defended Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Or just about anything that has happened on the court in the first-round playoff series.
Blake Griffin buried bank shots, turnaround jumpers and spinning layups. DeAndre Jordan gobbled up rebounds and opposing shots, often flexing his muscles and letting out a roar.
Blake Griffin scored 27 points, DeAndre Jordan added 21, and the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Sacramento Kings 117-101 on Saturday to earn their franchise record-tying 56th victory of the regular season.
There’s something about the Detroit Pistons that seems to bring out DeAndre Jordan’s best dunks.
Paul George scored 36 points and Lance Stephenson added 22 points and 12 rebounds, leading the Indiana Pacers past the Los Angeles Clippers, 106-92 on Saturday night.
DeAndre Jordan scored a career-high 25 points to match Blake Griffin, and the Los Angeles Clippers rallied to beat the Dallas Mavericks 119-112 Friday night after Chris Paul left with a shoulder injury.
Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan each had a double-double, and the Los Angeles Clippers beat the New Orleans Pelicans 108-95 Wednesday night to give coach Doc Rivers a victory over his son’s team.
Jamal Crawford had a season-high 31 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds off the bench to help the Los Angeles Clippers to a 104-98 overtime victory over the Sacramento Kings on Friday night.
Blake Griffin and J.J. Redick scored 22 points each to rally the Los Angeles Clippers to a 107-94 win over the Houston Rockets on Saturday night.
Remember that one about Doc Rivers getting traded to the Clippers in a deal involving Kevin Garnett? Never mind. The Celtics and Clippers were informed that such an arrangement is not permitted under league trade rules.
Chris Paul hit a free throw with 18.3 seconds left, and the Los Angeles Clippers edged the Memphis Grizzlies 91-87 Saturday night in a possible preview of a first-round playoff series.
DeAndre Jordan had 20 points and 12 rebounds, Chris Paul added 14 points and 12 assists, and the Los Angeles Clippers led all the way in beating the Phoenix Suns 126-101 on Wednesday night for their franchise-record 50th win.
After going 4-4 in their previous eight games, the Los Angeles Clippers were looking to set a tone for themselves before heading out on their last big road trip before the playoffs.
The Clippers had been talking in practice the last couple days about turning up their intensity.
