Larry Nance Jr. returns to starting lineup against Clippers

It happens sometimes, but Luke Walton isn’t a coach who believes in a player losing his starting job because of an injury.

So when Larry Nance Jr. healed from the broken hand he suffered on Nov. 2, he took back the spot he earned in training camp and became the Lakers’ starting power forward again...

Clippers hold their breath; Griffin’s season in jeopardy

Just when the Clippers had regained their footing on the way to winning their third consecutive game, just when power forward Blake Griffin was becoming surprisingly effective as their de facto point guard by displaying uncanny vision while he directed their offense, Griffin’s knee was twisted...

Clippers beat Lakers but lose Blake Griffin to knee injury

Blake Griffin suffered a left knee injury late in the fourth quarter and wasn’t around to see Lou Williams take control of the game and lead the Clippers past the Lakers 120-115 Monday night.

Griffin was injured when Austin Rivers fell into his teammate’s knee when both scrambled for a loose ball...

Blake Griffin Left Lakers’ Game with Knee Injury, Did Not Return

Blake Griffin got injured in a tussle under the basket, and twisted his knee. He did not return to the game.

While the Clippers won the game against the rival Lakers, Blake Griffin limping to the locker room cast a pallor over the victory.

Blake was fighting for the ball, and was in forced into an awkward position while trying to hold onto it. Unfortunately, Austin Rivers, also attempting to get his hands on it, came down on Griffin’s leg, and pushed it towards the ground. The video doesn’t look good. Hopefully it’s just a bruise or minor strain, but it’s certainly possible Griffin misses some time with the injury.

Blake is by far the Clippers’ best player, and any significant injury to him would force the team into full-fledged tank mode. Hopefully Blake is ok, and returns to the Clippers in short order. More news should come tomorrow. Prayers up for Blake.

Blake to the locker room. Oh no.

Highlights: Blake Griffin Scores 33 vs Kings, Hits Game-Winner

A performance worth watching again.

Saturday night, the Clippers came back from an 18-point deficit to take a 10-point fourth quarter lead, and then withstood a late comeback by the Sacramento Kings to win in the closing seconds, 97-95. Blake Griffin was unquestionably the star of the game, and he was phenomenal throughout, scoring 33 points with a variety of moves and ending the game with a fallaway jumper that gave the Clippers the win.

Clippers win, classic Blake Griffin performance... yeah, it’s worth re-watching the highlights.

Blake Griffin scores a season-high 33, including the game-winner, to lead the @LAClippers to victory! #ItTakesEverything

Baron Davis: “If the Clippers Need Me, I Could Come in There and Turn it Around”

Should the Clippers go back to their roots?

Former Clippers point guard Baron Davis was courtside in Sacramento last weekend as the Clippers took down the Kings, 97-95. During the game, he did a brief interview on the Clippers’ broadcast with sideline reporter Jamie Maggio, in which he discussed the Clippers’ bad injury luck to start the season and Blake Griffin’s growth since the two played together in Griffin’s rookie season.

Say what Baron?

— LA Clippers (@LAClippers) November 26, 2017

Davis originally joined the Clippers as a free agent in the summer of 2008, intending to team up with Elton Brand. When Brand backed out of his agreement and instead signed with the 76ers, Baron’s much-anticipated signing ended up turning into very few wins. Over the course of two and a half seasons in L.A., Baron averaged 14.6 points and 7.6 assists per game, shooting just 39.6% from the field and 29.1% from deep.

During his chat with Jamie Maggio, Baron casually dropped that the could still beat Clippers color commentator Bruce Bowen in a game of one-on-one. The two were never teammates, but their NBA careers overlapped for almost a full decade. Then, Baron added this: “if the Clippers need me, I could come in there and turn it around.” The Clippers are in need of guard help after losing Patrick Beverley for the remainder of the season to knee surgery, making is a pretty funny line for Baron to drop in good fun. At 38 years old, and six seasons removed from his last NBA action, Baron isn’t serious about an NBA comeback—he attempted to show his stuff in the NBA D-League during the 2015-16 season and decided to hang it up for good after six games.

Not all is lost, Baron. We’ll always have the 2011 Slam Dunk Contest.
