DeAndre Jordan had 22 points and a career-high 27 rebounds, and the Los Angeles Clippers won without Blake Griffin, beating Dallas 115-98 Monday night after the Mavericks lost Tyson Chandler and Monta Ellis to injuries in the first four minutes.
The cover-up can be worse than the crime. And USC cornerback Josh Shaw is far from the first sports figure to spin a bogus story to explain an injury.
The Lakers’ defense was relatively non-existent throughout their Monday night loss to the Dallas Mavericks
The Warriors and representatives for Monta Ellis are working cooperatively to see if a trade to a contending team can be arranged, a deal that would likely happen around the NBA draft later this month, a person with knowledge of the discussions told CBSSports.com.
Monta Ellis scored 26 points, David Lee had 22 points and 17 rebounds, and the Golden State Warriors held on to beat the suddenly sluggish Los Angeles Lakers 95-87 on Wednesday night.
Even with Monta Ellis in the lineup, Golden State has been unable to beat the Los Angeles Lakers in almost three years. Without its star, pulling off that elusive victory becomes an even bigger challenge against the two-time defending NBA champions.
