Predictions for the Los Angeles Clippers lineup next season

Clippers 2014-2015

CLIPPERS

The Los Angeles Clippers have done a few changes in their roster up to now but the core of the team remains the same as the 2013 – 2014 campaign. The Clips will enter the upcoming season as one of the strongest favorites for the title. So, which will be the starting lineup of the team? Let’s break down.

Point Guard

Chris Paul CP3

CP3

There’s no question about who the starting point guard of the Clips will be. Chris Paul will be the starter and as long as he stays healthy, he will be Lob City’s facilitator. Last season we saw the Clips using Darren Collison as their starting point guard during the time CP3 was down with an injury. However, after Paul’s return, Collison was switched back to the backup role.

Shooting guard
Another position in which Doc Rivers had to use a backup player as a starter is the shooting guard spot. Jamal Crawford took over for the Clips due to J.J. Redick’s injury. Nonetheless, Redick returned back healthy and he will be LA’s starter at the spot next season. With that said, Crawford will play the role he knows best, he will be the sixth man of the team.

Small forward
The small forward position is the least deadly in the Clippers’ starting lineup. Lob City has been trying to upgrade this spot since the free agency commenced but up to now, it has found no success. Paul Pierce was rumored to show interest in the Clippers and a few other names were thrown on the table. As it now seems, Matt Barnes will be the starting small forward for the Clippers once again. Barnes is a very effective player although he doesn’t put up huge numbers. He is also a terrific perimeter defender.

LA Clippers Blake Griffin deserves respect

Griffin

Power forward
Paul’s fellow superstar, Blake Griffin, will of course be a starter, too. Griffin recorded a terrific season in 2013 – 2014, taking advantage of CP3’s absence. This was the season Griffin saw an increase in almost any aspect of his game. Next season, he is projected to come back even stronger, better and more ready to lead his team to the top of the NBA. The truth is that Griffin has been criticized for his explosive character and his lack of focus when the game is on the line and especially in the playoffs. Nonetheless, in Year 1 of his cooperation with Doc Rivers, Griffin saw a significant improvement in that area, too. So, next season, he is expected to be even more mature and better poised.

Los Angeles Clippers

Chris Deandre Blake

Center
DeAndre Jordan was counted in as the third superstar of the Clips by Doc Rivers last season. And he will be LA’s starting center in 2014 – 2015. Jordan emerged as one of the top defending big men in the league last season and he also saw major improvement in many aspects of his game. Thankfully, the Clips will now have a quality big man on their bench, Spencer Hawes, who will be able to back up Jordan and Griffin, too.

Clippers Look To 2014-2015

Clippers 2014-2015

CLIPPERS

Despite of all the changes and additions the Los Angeles Clippers did to start this season, they didn’t go much further than one more round in the playoffs, comparing to their 2012-2013 course. Lob City fell to the Oklahoma City Thunder after six games in the Western Semis and those championship dreams will have to wait for at least another year. But can the Clips really stay at the top next season? Will they really be championship contenders?

First and foremost, the ownership issue will have to be resolved. It might be a long and tough process for the Clipper Nation but it’s also a necessary one. Only after Donald Sterling is removed from the owner’s position can the team truly focus on its ultimate goal for the upcoming season but also for the ones to come after that.

Assuming that the league and the people taking care of the issue eventually find a solution, the Los Angeles Clippers can start building their future. And of course, you might wonder, they do have a great team even now, right? So do they really need to plan on the future or just the upcoming season?
As head coach Doc Rivers stated after the elimination in Game 6, this is not the end. This is the beginning.

Clippers Blake Griffin Chris Paul

Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers have one of the greatest and most powerful star cores in the NBA. Chris Paul and Blake Griffin are under contract at least for the next three seasons, J.J. Redick is in the books until the end of the 2016 – 2017 season, Jamal Crawford for one season less and DeAndre Jordan will be with the team at least for the next season. Doc Rivers was also signed in a long term contract and assuming that Donald Sterling will be removed prior to the start of the 2014 – 2015 season, he will have no reason to not use up his contract.

Of course, we might see the Clippers performing a few moves during the offseason to try and find those missing pieces, those players who can further increase their chances to seriously contend for the title next season. But the team’s core will be the same. When it comes to changes in the style of play, Chris Paul might want to eventually start utilizing and trusting Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan more. As Rivers stated through the season, Jordan has superstar potential and if the Paul manages to find a way to utilize him more, he could emerge as the third pillar in the superstar line of the Clips.

CLIPPERS

If the Los Angeles Clippers achieves what they did in Year 1 under Doc Rivers and after all they went through during the last month, it will be really interesting to see how far this team can go. The Clips improved in almost every aspect of their game this season both as a team and as individuals and they are projected to continue getting better.

Let the Clippers Vs Warriors Playoffs Begin

Clippers Vs Warriors Tickets

CLIPPERS Vs WARRIORS

In one of the most eagerly anticipated first round playoff series the Los Angeles Clippers will face the Golden State Warriors in the opening round of the NBA’s Western Conference playoffs, starting Saturday at STAPLES Center Saturday, with game two scheduled for STAPLES Center on Monday night. The Warriors, who finished sixth in the Western Conference playoff standings, were dealt a major blow this past week when starting center Andrew Bogut suffered a fractured rib.

The Clippers are coming off of their second consecutive Pacific Division title and the top record in team history. After a disappointing exit at the hands of the Memphis Grizzlies in last season’s playoffs the Clippers, with Doc Rivers at the helm, enter the playoffs with high expectations. The Clippers success has created major expectations in Los Angeles that the team is primed for a finals run. When star point guard Chris Paul went down with an injury early this year, power forward Blake Griffin took his game to the next level, garnering attention as a potential dark horse MVP candidate. In Paul and Griffin the Clippers have two established superstars, arguably two of the top ten players in the NBA. With the return of JJ Redick the Clippers are also healthy for the first time in several months, with the entire starting lineup intact.

The series will be defined by the point guard matchup between Chris Paul and Warriors superstar fourth-year forward Stephon Curry. Curry has nearly unlimited range and along with Klay Thompson forms the premier shooting backcourt in the NBA. Curry, arguably the best three point shooter in the history of the NBA, is the catalyst for the Warriors offense, constantly pushing the basketball with the ability to score from the outside and in transition.

Clippers Vs Warriors Tickets

CLIPPERS Vs WARRIORS

Due to Golden State’s unique home court advantage at Oracle Arena it’s important for the Clippers to get off to a fast start at STAPLES Center, not letting the Warriors steal a game before the series heads to the Bay Area. With Bogut out due to injury the Clippers will have an advantage inside with Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. Veteran Jermaine O’Neal will be forced to play extra minutes alongside David Lee inside. Lee is already a weakness on the defensive end, and the Warriors interior defense will suffer mightily without Bogut, who is a strong presence on the boards and as a shot blocker. The Clippers extraordinary depth, which includes Matt Barnes, Darren Collison, Jamal Crawford, Jared Dudley and Danny Granger off the bench gives them depth advantage. If they can exploit their depth through an up-tempo style they should be able to offset the firepower of Curry and Thompson.

Prediction: The loss of Bogut will have a major impact on the series. The big Aussie is a major presence inside and the Warriors interior defense will suffer without him. The Clippers tremendous overall depth, as well as the coaching of Doc Rivers, should overwhelm the Warriors. Clippers in five.

Clippers Second Straight Division Title

LA Clippers Barry's Tickets

CLIPPERS

With their latest victory against the Phoenix Suns, the Los Angeles Clippers have now won their second consecutive title in the Pacific Division, which is also the second one in franchise history. The Clips continue to dominate with their game and they are looking to take down any opponent that will stand between them and the NBA Championship this season, Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs included.

With their latest victory against the Phoenix Suns, the Los Angeles Clippers have now won their second consecutive title in the Pacific Division, which is also the second one in franchise history. The Clips continue to dominate with their game and they are looking to take down any opponent that will stand between them and the NBA Championship this season, Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs included.

It’s notable that the Clips have recorded the second best record in the NBA since January, trailing just the league-leaders, San Antonio Spurs. It’s also notable that Doc Rivers’s group has managed to stay hot despite all the absences it had from time to time. Chris Paul missed a big chunk of the season due to a shoulder injury, Danny Granger, Jamal Crawford and J.J. Redick all missed a significant amount of games and yet the Clips look better than they have ever been.

Warriors Vs Clippers Tickets

Warriors Vs Clippers

Of course, Lob City will have to prove its potential come playoff time. The Clips won’t have an easy road towards the Larry O’Brien trophy, not even in the first round of the playoffs. With the Golden State Warriors most probably being their matchup in the first leg, the Clippers won’t have an easy road at all. However, if they keep performing at the level they have been as of lately and most importantly if they manage to stay healthy, the Clippers will definitely do well.

In fact, last season, health and luck were not there for LA. The team suffered a disappointing early elimination in the first round of the postseason from the Memphis Grizzlies. This year, they are looking to avoid a repetition of that same failure.

Clipper Nation has numerous reasons to be optimistic for the Clippers Playoff Run this year. Blake Griffin is recording a breakaway season, Chris Paul seems to be at his 100 percent, Jamal Crawford is almost a lock for the Sixth Man of the Year award and DeAndre Jordan is considered a strong candidate for the Most Improved Player of the Year. Add in the mid-season additions of Glen Davis and Danny Granger and of course, the presence of Doc Rivers on the bench and you have your championship – ready team.

LOB CITY

The Clippers are the best team on offense in the league and unless they meet a true defensive powerhouse, they won’t be easily stopped. As things are currently in the Western Conference, the Clips seem capable of beating the Oklahoma City Thunder in a potential seven – game series. They could also top the San Antonio Spurs, which currently are at the top of their game but they may run out of fuel during the postseason.

Will this be the Los Angeles Clippers’ year? Will this be the time that the fans of the team will finally taste the sweetness of the NBA Championship?

Playoff Preview Between Clippers and Warriors

Warriors Vs Clippers Tickets

Warriors Vs Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers will host the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday, March 12. The game is projected to be spectacular and really fun to watch. The Clippers are one of the best in the NBA when it comes to providing moments of joy to the home crowd, thanks to the highflying from Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. On the other hand, the Warriors have the best shooting duo in the league, in Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson and if they start firing it up from outside they are really tough to be stopped.

The game will be difficult for either team but it will also be a statement one. The two teams could meet in the playoffs and even during the first round. The Clips currently rank fourth in the Western Conference but thanks to their recent additions and their great outputs, they have the potential to climb even higher. On the other hand, the Dubs currently occupy the sixth spot in the conference and they are projected to finish the regular season somewhere around that spot. This means they could face the Clippers in the first round. That’s why this game is so important.

Clippers Vs Warriors Tickets

Lob City

The Clips will have to make a good job defending their perimeter and also pick and roll situations. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson need just fractions of seconds before they get a shot up and sink it to the basket. The battle between David Lee and Blake Griffin will be an interesting one and a key to the outcome of the game. Griffin is the scoring leader for the Clips this season. If Lee manages to contain him below his season-averages, then the Dubs will greatly increase their chance to escape with a victory.

LA’s latest additions are certainly going to be a factor in this game, too. The Clips will need Danny Granger and Glen Davis to contribute, each one on the sector he’s best at. The Golden State Warriors’ reserves have just recently uplifted their performance and the Clips will have to make sure they can match the surge from their opponents. The Clips are expected to have Jamal Crawford back, who stayed out of action in the least two games due to a calf injury. Crawford’s contribution will certainly be a factor in the outcome of the game. The veteran guard is the second-leading scorer for LA this season. Chris Paul is also gradually getting his game back.

LA Clippers Vs Warriors

Griffin

The certainty is that this game will be exciting to watch for all the fans in the arena. As the both teams battle for the battle for top 5 spots in the western conference playoffs, we’ll certainly see some devastating dunks from Griffin and the rest of the highflyers, but we’re also expected to a bunch of threes going down. This will end up being a high-scoring game.

As of today the Clippers are sitting in fourth place in the Western Conference with 5th place Portland Trail Blazers only a half a game back which makes this Clippers Vs Warriors game that much more important as a possible preview of the first round playoffs.

No Paul No Problem For Clippers

Blake Griffin LA Clippers

Playing without point guard Chris Paul the Los Angeles Clippers demonstrated depth and resiliency in going 3-0 on the week, all at STAPLES Center. The three game winning streak kept the Clippers a game up on the red hot Golden State Warriors for fourth place in the tough Western Conference. Los Angeles is four games behind the San Antonio Spurs for the top mark, and three games behind Portland and Oklahoma City who are in a tie for second place. The Clippers are in the midst of four days off before they host the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night. Following the Mavericks game the Clippers head off on the road.

Week Recap: The Clippers kicked off the week with a twenty point victory over the Orlando Magic behind a huge performance from DeAndre Jordan. The Clippers center had a massive stat line consisting of 14 points, 17 rebounds and 8 blocked shots. The big story, behind Jordan, was the performance of Darren Collison, filling in for Chris Paul. Collison scored 19 of his 21 points in the second half to put the game away. Wednesday night the Clippers welcomed in the gritty Boston Celtics, the first time Doc Rivers faced his former team in Los Angeles. Blake Griffin scored 29 and Jamal Crawford chipped in 26 to help the Clippers run their home record to 16-3 on the season and notch another victory without Chris Paul. Darren Collison was steady at the point again with 15 points and 6 assists in the win. The Clippers strong play continued Friday night in their 123-87 destruction of the struggling Lakers. The Clippers outscored the Lakers by 18 in the first quarter and then outscored the Lakers by 24 in the third quarter to win the game going away. JJ Redick returned, scoring 19 points, part of a huge performance from the Clippers starting unit. Blake Griffin had 33 points and 12 boards while Darren Collison scored 20 in the blowout victory. The Clippers held the Lakers to just 34 percent shooting and 21 turnovers in the impressive victory.

The Week Ahead: The Clippers host the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night before heading off on what may be a season-defining seven game road trip. After hosting Dallas the Clippers round out the week with visits to the New York Knicks and Indiana Pacers. New York has struggled most of the season but is coming off an impressive win over the Miami Heat. Indiana currently has the top record in basketball and play in one of the toughest home environments in the NBA. Indiana will be a major test for the Clippers and should serve as a solid litmus test for how good the Clippers are without Chris Paul. By:Chris Michaels.

The End of Lob City?

LA Clippers Lob City

Lob City


After winning their first Pacific Division title the Los Angeles Clippers flamed out in the first round of the NBA playoffs to the Memphis Grizzlies. After a strong regular season the early playoff exit forced some needed changes. Head Coach Vinny Del Negro is out, replaced by one of the most respected coaches in the NBA, Doc Rivers. The Clippers also re-made an already solid bench, emphasizing character guys with the ability to play multiple positions and hit the three point shot. In a loaded Western Conference the Clippers should be in contention for the top overall record in the west. After consecutive strong regular seasons expectations have risen in Clipper-land, with a deep playoff run expected from the club’s burgeoning fan base.

Here are five things to watch as the Clippers head into the all-important 2013-2014 regular season:
Doc Rivers:

After leading the Celtics to an NBA title and several team playoff runs Doc Rivers is now regarded as one of the elite coaches in the NBA. He’s a well respected game manager who players love to play for. His Celtics teams played hard and played tremendous defense. Basketball is a confidence game and elite NBA head coaches can have a dramatic impact on the fortunes of a franchise. Vinny Del Negro was widely regarded as a great guy but one of the worst in coaches in the league. His late game decisions and rotation choices often left Clippers fans shaking their heads. The presence of Rivers on the bench should pay dividends come playoff time. His reputation for coaching defense should improve an area where the Clippers had some struggles in the past few seasons. Most importantly the presence of Rivers signals to the Lakers and the rest of the Western Conference that the Clippers are locked and loaded and legitimate NBA title contenders.

The End of Lob City: The Clippers open court style and the incredible athletic ability of Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan helped create “Lob City” at STAPLES Center the past couple of years. The Clippers made plenty of Sportscenter highlights but had difficulty adjusting to the half-court nature of playoff basketball. With Rivers the Clippers will now employ the half-court style Rivers employed in Boston, which stresses balancing the floor and player movement. It’s a proven style of play and the Clippers made some wise moves in the offseason to build a bench that will compliment the style. The Clippers may not be as exciting as in years past but the revised style of play should pay dividends come playoff time.

The Revised Bench: The Clippers had a strong bench last season, one of the elite groups in basketball. After starting strong they fizzled towards the end though, and went through bouts of inconsistency. Early signs are positive regarding the Clippers offseason additions. Jamal Crawford, who provided so much instant offense off the bench last season, has returned and should make a run for top sixth man in the NBA once again. Darren Collison had an up and down season last year in Dallas, but is a solid veteran point guard who should prove an excellent backup to Paul. Phoenix Suns import Jared Dudley is a character guy who can hit the tough three point shot while providing solid defense off the bench. If there are any questions regarding the Clippers depth it’s related to their interior backups. Lou Amundson, Ryan Hollins and Byron Mullens each have their own strengths, but may have their hands full with some of the deeper front courts in the Western Conference.

Blake Griffin Time? Due to his remarkable athletic ability Blake Griffin has become one of the most popular players in the NBA, a human highlight film that rivals past greats like Dominique Williams. With the Clippers as serious title contenders it may be time for Griffin to put it all together and become one of the most dependable post scorers in the league. The Clippers more conservative style may eliminate some of the open court opportunities that Griffin likes to cash in on. The key for Griffin is to prove his ability to capitalize in the half court game. If the Clippers star can elevate his game to superstar levels the Clippers just may have the classic “two superstars” needed to take home an NBA crown.
The Health of Chris Paul: The Clippers have the best pure point guard in the NBA. They also have a player who has suffered from knee problems and missed thirty-five games in his two seasons as a Clipper. The Clippers will go as far as Chris Paul can take them. The presence of Darren Collison will give the Clippers a solid player to spell their superstar and keep him fresh for a playoff run. Paul is already hinting to an interest in perhaps a shorter NBA career than many and his chronic knee issues may eventually force a truncated career. He’s in the prime of his career now and the upcoming couple of seasons may represent the zenith of his NBA career. It’s essential for the Clippers to breakthrough and make their deep run this season, with Paul leading the charge.

Prediction: The Clippers win the Pacific Division again and eventually lose to the Heat in the NBA finals.

Billups vows to return to the NBA after suffering ruptured left Achilles tendon

The L.A. Clippers’ starting Shooting Guard Chauncey Billups’ season is over.  The rehab will likely take around 8 months, but the former 2004 Finals MVP has vowed to return to the NBA.  He told Yahoo! Sports that “has been the story of my career: coming back, fighting, scrapping…” On the season, he is averaging 15 points, 4 assists, 2.4 threes on 36% FG shooting, his second lowest shooting percentage since 1999 when he only played 13 games.  Despite poor shooting, Billups has become the archetypal “been there, done that” guy on a young Clippers team.  Between him and Caron Butler, the only two players to have NBA championship rings, they really have seen just about everything — including the rise and fall of Allen Iverson, the final curtain call of Michael Jordan, the slow decline of Tim Duncan, and the coronation of a King.

The injury came in Tuesday’s win against the Orlando Magic.  Everyone knew right away that it could be the Achilles tendon and began wishing Chauncey the best of luck as the organization waited for an MRI.  In his stead, Mo Williams and Randy Foye must step up.  Together, they are more than capable of reproducing his statistical output; but can they do the “Big Shot” when it counts?  For Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, this probably means a slight dip in the number of easy, unexpected lobs-turned-dunks, as Billups played Point Guard for most of his career.  Fans should look forward to seeing him on the sidelines where he will carefully mentor CP3 in the playoffs.  In recent years Billups has jumped from Detroit, his spiritual home, to Denver, the city from which he hails, to New York, the city that ultimately cut him just as it was forming its own “Big __ something”, to Los Angeles where he hoped to take yet another unlikely team all the way.  Good luck, Chauncey.  Everyone loves you.

Los Angeles Clippers Tickets are available for all Clippers Games.  Clippers Vs Spurs Tickets for the showdown on Feb 18th at 12:30,  Clippers Vs Nuggets Tickets for Feb 22nd at 7:30 and Clippers Vs Lakers Tickets for April 4th 7:30 are just some of the BIG Clippers games coming up at the STAPLES Center.

Clippers Vs Nuggets at the Pepsi Center Sun Jan 29th Wrap Up

Clippers Vs Nuggets at the Pepsi Center Sun Jan 29th Wrap Up

The postgame L.A. Clippers locker room had an old Nuggets feel to it. The Los Angeles Clippers face a tough test Sunday night as they hit the road to face the red-hot Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center. The Nuggets have won six straight games and own the second best record in the Western Conference at 14-5. The Clippers, meanwhile, have lost nine straight games in Denver.

There, in the center, was Chauncey Billups, always the man of the moment in the Mile High City. Around him were all of the familiar media faces peppering him with questions about another night, another big shot, another big victory.

Only, this time, he left his old team with all the questions while he provided answers Sunday night.
In his first game back since being traded, Billups was every bit Mr. Big Shot as he and Chris Paul took over in the fourth quarter to outlast the Nuggets 109-105 at the Pepsi Center.

The Nuggets, who had been riding high on a six-game winning streak, saw that snapped in excruciating fashion. Down the stretch they
Nuggets center Timofey Mozgov dunks in the first quarter. More photos. (John Leyba, The Denver Post) simply didn’t make enough plays to get the job done. The Denver Nuggets were outscored 15-6 to end the game.

“They made a lot of shots,” said Nuggets coach George Karl of Billups and Paul, who combined to score 19 of the Clippers’ 32 points in the fourth. “I think it was pretty good defense. I’m pretty sure the video will show that. We can’t do much more.”

The fourth quarter was a wild, back-and-forth affair, each team making one effective play after another on the offensive end.

A Nene bucket gave the Nuggets a 99-94 lead before the Clippers answered with five straight points, punctuated by a Billups 3-pointer with 3:01 left to tie it up. Billups then put the Clippers ahead 102-99 with a three-point play.

Paul rolled in a free-throw line jumper with 1:26 and L.A. led 104-101. But two Nene buckets — both dunks — got the Nuggets in front 105-104.

Two Paul free throws with 35.9 seconds left put the Clippers back on top 106-105. The Nuggets missed a layup on their ensuing possession and fouled DeAndre Jordan after the Clippers came away with the rebound. Jordan made 1-of-2 from the charity stripe with 23.4 seconds to extend L.A.’s lead to 107-105.

After a timeout, Nene was called for an offensive foul with 18.1 seconds remaining, which was the biggest blow to the Nuggets’ rally hopes. The Nuggets fouled Paul with 17.2, and he made both to push the Clippers’ lead to four. A failed Nuggets possession after that sealed the team’s fate.

“We kept it close, kept it close,” Billups said. “And Chris was big for us in the fourth quarter, made a couple of plays … and that’s how you’ve got to win on the road.”
Billups returned to Denver in style. He scored a season-high 32 points, nailing six 3-pointers in the process. The Clippers drained 14 3-pointers as a team, outscoring the Nuggets 42-18 from the arc.

They had a really good percentage from 3-point, Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari said. Chauncey ha an unbelievable game. They hit some tough shots and contested 3s.
It was a tough start in a tough stretch for the Nuggets. On Saturday afternoon, Karl gathered his team, lent perspective to their hot start and relayed a message of urgency about what they will face in the next 30 days.
