Blake Griffin and Joakim Noah the two top black horses for the MVP award

Clippers Blake Griffin Bulls Joakim Noah

BLAKE & JOAKIM

There is no denying that the MVP title is a two-man one this year. LeBron James and Kevin Durant will be apparently fighting chest to chest till the end of the season for the award and at the moment, things look really tight. However, it’s worth taking a look at some of the black horses of this race. Although several players have been involved into the discussion for the MVP award this season, at the moment, Blake Griffin and Joakim Noah are the two best underdogs.

Noah is the main reason the Chicago Bulls have managed not only to save the 2013-2014 season but to also emerge up to the third spot in the Eastern Conference. The Frenchman center is doing it all for his team at the moment, playing defense, scoring, dishing assists and rebounding. Although Noah has literally no chances to make it to the top of list of MVP candidates, as LeBron and KD are playing in a whole different level, he is one of the most over performing players this season.

LA Clippers Blake Griffin

BLAKE

If there is one player who deserves to be considered as a third strong candidate for the MVP award this season, that is Blake Griffin. The highflying forward has not only improved his game in almost any aspect but he has also emerged as the true leader of the Los Angeles Clippers, taking the team on his shoulders during the time Chris Paul was out with an injury.

Griffin is averaging 24 points per contest, almost three more than his career-average and he is also securing 9.6 rebounds and dishing out 3.6 assists, while shooting 53.2 percent from the floor. He just recently got hurt, during the Clips’ last game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, but he is projected to return to action soon and be ready for the Clips’ playoff push. Despite Griffin’s improvement, he will still not be able to reach the duo of LeBron and Durant.

LeBron is recording a career-best 57.0 percent shooting from the field and he is also putting up 26.7 points, 6.9 rebounds and 6.4 assists per game, which are too much for Griffin to get close. Durant is also recording similarly impressive numbers, maybe even more impressive. He is leading the NBA in scoring with 32.2 points per game and he is also putting up 7.5 rebounds and 5.7 assists. His shooting is also great but slightly lower than LeBron’s rates, 51.2 percent from the floor and 41.2 percent from deep.
The MVP race will be coming to its end soon and we will see either Durant or LeBron earning the crown. However, we also have to recognize the efforts of players like Griffin and Noah. Chris M

Can The Clippers Beat The Spurs?

Heading down the stretch in the Western Conference playoff race the Los Angeles Clippers are solidly in third place with potential to surpass the Oklahoma City Thunder for second place. Like the first place Spurs the Clippers are peaking at the right time, with victories in 12 of their last 13 games. Following their upcoming five game road trip the Clippers can finish off the season at STAPLES Center, heading into the playoffs with the potential to win as many as 60 games. Now the dominant team in Los Angeles the Clippers head into the postseason with big expectations. With consecutive Pacific Division titles and a loaded roster anything less than a deep run into the Western Conference playoffs would be a disappointment for the franchise. From the acquisition of Doc Rivers to the building of a deep bench the Clippers organization has made the moves necessary to contend for a title. The two teams in the Clippers way, the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder, are veteran laden clubs with championship pedigree. Both have reached the finals the past two seasons. While the Thunder took a tiny step back with the trade of James Harden and the injury to Russell Westbrook, the Clippers look ready to make the ascent and challenge San Antonio.

Here are five reasons the Clippers will knock off the San Antonio Spurs:

LA Clippers Vs Spurs

DOC & GREG

Doc Rivers: Look no further than San Antonio and Greg Popovich for a perfect example of the impact of head coaching in the NBA. The Spurs are an outstanding organization with multiple future Hall of Famers, but they also have arguably the best head coach in professional sports. In seeking Doc Rivers to replace Vinny Del Negro the Clippers significantly improved at the head coaching position. The presence of Rivers has improved the Clippers significantly on the defensive end of the court. The Clippers are currently 6th in the NBA defensive rankings, giving up just 101.5 points per game and 4th in effective field goal percentage, behind Miami, San Antonio and the Houston Rockets. It’s an old adage that defense wins championships, but the adage holds true in the NBA.

LA Clippers Vs Spurs Tickets

BLAKE

The Evolution of Blake Griffin: In the past three months Blake Griffin has gone from a player that many around the NBA still questioned as an elite star, to a potential MVP candidate. When Chris Paul went down with an injury early in 2014 Griffin went on a tear and carried the team on his back until Paul returned. The former top overall pick is playing the best basketball of his career and will give the Spurs fits in the playoffs. Griffin has turned into the dependable post option that the Clippers need to contend for a title.

Clippers Spurs LA Staples Center

DEANDRE

Youth: Based on the past few seasons the idea of writing off the Spurs due to the age of Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili would be a major mistake. Popovich has masterfully managed the roster this season, somehow locking up the likely top overall seed while managing to not play a single player more than 30 minutes per game. This strategy has preserved the legs of veterans Duncan, Parker and Ginobili. The big question is whether or not this regular season strategy can translate to the playoffs. If Duncan, Parker and Ginobili are forced to play big minutes come postseason the Clippers relative depth and youth should be a factor.

The Clippers Bench: Over the past several seasons one of the secrets to the Spurs success has been their bench strength. They’ve done an incredible job finding and developing young talent to play alongside their veteran core. The Clippers bench depth, more than any other team in the Western Conference, rivals that of the Spurs. During the recent trade deadline the Clippers made moves to acquire Glen Davis and Danny Granger, to provide even more assistance to a unit that includes Matt Barnes, Jamal Crawford, Darren Collison and Jared Dudley. As a result the Clippers boast a reserve until every bit as deep as San Antonio.

Spurs Vs LA Clippers

CHRIS

Chris Paul: The secret to the Spurs success over the past five seasons is the play of point guard Tony Parker. While Tim Duncan has taken a secondary role Parker has assumed the role of the go-to player in the lineup. His combination of speed and quickness makes him incredibly hard to guard and helps drive the Spurs offense. In the 28 games the two have played against each other during their NBA careers the matchup has essentially been a standstill. Parker and the Spurs have won 18 of the 28 matchups, largely due to the dominance of the Spurs during Paul’s years with the Hornets. Parker has struggled with nagging injuries the past two seasons and the presence of Paul will make Parker work at both ends of the court, expending important energy on the defensive end.

It would be a giant mistake to write the Spurs off after the dominant regular seasons they’ve had the past two years and the deep playoff run they made in 2013, but Duncan and Ginobili are a year older and their ability to continually answer the bell has to come to an end at some point. The Clippers are peaking at the right time and should have what it takes to upset San Antonio in the Western Conference playoffs.Chris Michaels.

Could a Blake Griffin – Carmelo Anthony Trade Work

Clippers Tickets

Clippers Tickets

This trade scenario might seem weird at first. However, it seems like the Los Angeles Clippers and the New York Knicks are examining a potential trade that would bring Carmelo Anthony to LA and send Blake Griffin to New York. Could such a deal benefit both sides? Would it be possible?

First of all, the New York Knicks are currently under big pressure. They have entered the 2013-2014 season really bad and they continue to play in a very ugly style. The injuries of Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton proved out to be costly for the team and now the entire season is in jeopardy. The Knicks will have to think of their next moves, maybe their next seasons, too.

Melo has a player for the 2013-2014 season and there is a possibility that he chooses to seek for another team. However, many people around the league and around the team strongly believe that Carmelo Antony is staying in NYC. Nonetheless, if he chooses to leave, the Knicks might lose him and get nothing in return.
Such a trade would only make sense for the Los Angeles Clippers. The Knicks would also be benefited. Since Carmelo was acquired New York has failed to reach the top of the East, as the team initially targeted. Instead, they have been battling to even make it to the conference finals for some seasons now. At the moment, the next time the Knicks will have a chance to make significant moves in their roster is the summer of 2015. Then, they will have the financial flexibility to bring in a star, as the huge contract of Amar’e Stoudemire expires. Certainly, Anthony knows well the situation and he might think twice before deciding to spend his prime in a team with little chances to make it to the top.

Blake Griffin’s addition would mean that the Knicks would have a surging big men duo. Griffin and Tyson Chandler would be one of the best frontcourt duos in the league. Add in J.R. Smith and Raymond Felton and you have a very well-balanced starting lineup.

Griffin Melo Trade

Griffin Melo Trade

The Clips would also be much benefited from such a trade. Of course, trading away Blake Griffin will be far from easy for them. Nonetheless, an addition of a superstar like Carmelo Anthony would make the team a true powerhouse. That’s what the Clippers want after all. Chris Paul Melo would be almost unstoppable. They also seem to fit each other, as CP3 is a player who doesn’t demand the ball on his hands all the time. Paul’s distributing skills could greatly complement Anthony’s strengths.

This trade won’t come easy for either team. Blake Griffin is certainly the most quality power forward in the NBA but his name is linked to the Clippers’ new age. Donald Sterling, the owner of the Clips will have a tough time deciding on this one. Nonetheless, if LA truly wants to take the next step and reach the caliber of teams like the Indiana Pacers or the Miami Heat they will have to strongly consider such a possibility.By:Chris Michaels

Huge Week For The Los Angeles Clippers

Clippers Tickets

Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers rebounded from a tough stretch the previous week to take three of four to run their season record to 16-9, good for fourth place in the Western Conference. The Clippers are 3 games behind a tight trio at the top comprised of San Antonio, Oklahoma City and Portland. Saturday’s win versus the Washington Wizards gave the Clippers a 4-3 record during their season long seven-game road trip. Now the Clippers are returning home for a five game homestead and Clippers Tickets start as low as $19.00 per ticket.

Week Recap: The Clippers kicked off the week with an eleven point victory Monday night in Philadelphia versus the 76ers. With Matt Barnes and JJ Redick out the Clippers couldn’t rely as much on their deep bench. Point Guard Chris Paul had 25 points and 13 assists, while Blake Griffin led the Clippers with 26 points. DeAndre Jordan was a beast on the boards with 21 rebounds. After winning in Philly the Clippers made the trip to Boston for Doc Rivers’ return trip to the city where he led the Celtics to an NBA title. The Celtics, who cleaned house this off-season, have been surprisingly competitive under former Butler University Head Coach Brad Stevens. The Clippers overcame a six point halftime deficit with a strong third and fourth quarter and then held on for the victory. Jamal Crawford was huge off the bench with 21 points including two dagger three pointers towards the end of the fourth quarter to seal the victory. Chris Paul had a near triple-double with 22 points, 7 rebounds and 9 assists. After losing Thursday night in Brooklyn versus the Nets the Clippers rebounded and wrapped up their east coast swing with a huge Saturday night victory over the Washington Wizards. Chris Paul had one of his best games as a Clipper with 38 points and 12 assists. The Clippers shot 56% as a team.

Upcoming Clippers Games

Upcoming

The Week Ahead: The Clippers have a huge week ahead with four games at STAPLES Center, all versus Western Conference foes. Los Angeles kicks off the week Monday night when they welcome in Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs for a key Western Conference matchup. The ageless Spurs are playing solid basketball once again with one of the best records in the NBA. The Clippers then welcome in the New Orleans Hornets and the Denver Nuggets Wednesday and Saturday. The Pelicans, who have a talented young roster, are 11-10 on the season and in the race for the final playoff positions in the West. Clippers Vs Pelicans Tickets begin at $10.00 per ticket. The Nuggets, who many picked to struggle due to the retirement of former coach George Karl and roster changes, have played very good basketball after a slow start and are in the thick of the race in the Western Conference with a 13-9 record. The Nuggets are currently tied with the surprising Sun for sixth place in the conference and Nuggets Vs Clippers Tickets begin at $20.00 per ticket. The Clippers wrap up the week when they host the Minnesota Timberwolves at STAPLES Center on Sunday night. Tickets for the Clippers Timberwolves game start at $20.00 a piece. The Clippers had a narrow victory over Kevin Love and the Timberwolves earlier this season.

What Are The San Manuel Tables At The Staples Center

San Manuel Table

San Manuel

The San Manuel Club seats at the STAPLES Center aren’t just tickets, their an experience. Attending the Lakers vs. Warriors game on Friday November 22nd was by far, the best Laker game and STAPLES Center visit I have ever had because of the San Manuel Club premier tickets.

As we approached the VIP entrance and went up the escalator, you are almost exactly where you need to be, so the location is extremely convenient – a definite plus. Entering a lobby area, I was greeted by a big metallic San Manuel Amphitheatre Club sign and some attendants who eagerly strapped me with a wrist band and directed us to our seats. The initial experience is in a word, awesome: A full bar area filled with beautiful people, a giant buffet and eating area – then looking left your blown away by an incredible view of the STAPLES Center floor. We arrived at our “semi private” area and were stunned with 4 plush living room type leather sofa chairs, a personal TV installed on the inside wall, small tables for snacks, and a private eating area for four that allows you to eat, while still seeing the game – a very intelligent and cool design.

San Manuel Table Lakers

San Manuel Lakers

After the personal server came by to explain the San Manuel Club dining experience and take our drink orders, we took in the phenomenal view of the game from our “open roof box”. The set up of the area is best suited for two couples as there are two chairs on two separate levels, but a group of four could have a great time in the space as well. The San Manuel Club seats are pretty darn good, I felt close to the action and you’ve got such a great view of the entire arena – looking left and right you can see the other San Manuel “boxes” lit up bright purple and the entire STAPLES Center lining either side with the court in the middle from most seats in the club.

The AMAZING buffet that came WITH the tickets as part of the San Manuel Package, included cool stuff like: coffee braised short rib, fresh veggies, Chinese food and all kinds of desserts. When I heard there was a buffet I wasn’t too sure at first, but I can tell you first hand – the San Manuel Club chefs know what they’re doing. The whole group was going back for seconds and thirds for a good part of the game – it was almost being in a super luxurious version of your living room with gourmet chefs catering, and the Lakers playing LIVE right in front of you!

The whole experience was my best yet at a Laker game, and at the STAPLES Center overall. The high end amenities make for a fun and relaxing live Laker game experience and then you throw in the included food and you’ve got a winner in my book. Next time I go to a Laker game I’m definitely going to try for San Manuel Club premier tickets.

San Manuel Tables are available for Lakers, Clippers and Kings Games at the LA Staples Center. Its a truly amazing experience to see a game in them.

Lakers defeat Clippers in 2013 Home Opener

Battle For LA Game

Battle For LA


The Clippers coronation as Los Angeles’s dominant professional basketball may not be complete just yet. In a dramatic fourth quarter that saw the Lakers play five reserves and outscore the Clippers 41-24, the Lakers pulled away for an impressive 116-103 victory in the season opener for both clubs. Led by free agency signee Xavier Henry the Lakers bench scored seventy-six points, the most points scored by a group of Lakers reserves since 1988. It was a career high in points scored for Henry, a third year player out of the University of Kansas who was released by the New Orleans Hornet and signed by the Lakers in September. Jordan Farmar added sixteen off the bench for the Lakers. It was another interesting edition to the Clippers/Lakers rivalry, where one of the league’s greatest franchises suddenly finds itself in the role of underdog. With a trip to Golden State and then a visit by the San Antonio Spurs coming the Lakers may return back to earth quickly, but on opening night their energy and bench play lit up the STAPLES Center.

For fans of the Clippers the opening night loss may be an aberration or a sign that it might take a bit of time for Doc Rivers to implement his system. The Clippers opted for a smaller lineup with Ryan Hollins getting very little playing time (four minutes) and Antawn Jamison and Byron Mullens not seeing the floor. When Rivers chose to rest center DeAndre Jordan the Clippers interior defense was lacking. As expected the Clippers were extremely efficient offensively, as they should be all season. They scored fifty-seven points in the first half, but led by only two points due to the Lakers all-around hustle and ability to get second chance points. One big stat was their 52-40 rebounding advantage, a category the Clippers may struggle with all season if they choose to continue to play a small-ball lineup. The Lakers simply out-sized and out-hustled the Clippers inside, with Jordan Hill and Chris Kaman combining for eleven offensive boards off the bench.

Much of the Clippers struggles can be chalked up to an adjustment to Doc Rivers’ system. For all the criticism that Mike D’Antoni has received the Lakers have had the opportunity to play in his system for nearly a year. Offensively the Clippers will be fine, it’s the defensive adjustments that will take some time. The Clippers had trouble defending the three-point shot last season and that didn’t change last season as the Lakers made fourteen of twenty-nine three pointers. The Lakers had a high number of open looks and knocked them down, running D’Antoni’s offense to perfection. Whether it was the Lakers effective rotation, or the Clippers just not executing the defense properly, the Lakers had too many wide open looks. NBA players will knock down open jump shots. The Clippers defense is clearly a work in progress, they’ll need to shore up how they guard the perimeter. Beyond the defensive concerns Clippers faithful are wondering if Blake Griffin is ready to make the next step in his evolution as a great player. Griffin struggled at the line, 3 for 10, and still lacks fluidity in his jump shot. In the fourth quarter when the Lakers made their run Griffin had zero points and zero rebounds. For the Clippers to leap into NBA title contention they’ll need bigger production from their star power forward.

For the Lakers it was an impressive start. The fact that no one believes they are a legit playoff team can be a motivating factor. They can’t expect many games like the bench had on Tuesday night, but the Lakers do seem to have injected some live into the roster. With Jordan Hill and Chris Kaman they have some nice size to back up Pau Gasol. They’ll struggle against elite backcourts, like the Golden State Warriors, until Kobe gets back. We’ll know a lot more about the Lakers after the play the Warriors and the Spurs, two strong Western Conference contenders.
