Clippers blow an inconceivable 18-point, fourth quarter lead to the loss-seeking Kings (Ball Don’t Lie)

It should have been the Clippers’ Sunday. Scheduled for its familiar Sunday matinee against a lowly opponent from Sacramento that was incentivized to lose, the Clippers could have downed the lottery-bound Kings on its way toward a virtually-even mark with the fightin’ Utah Jazz, and easy-elbowed its way into further room in the Western playoff bracket ahead of the exhausted Oklahoma City Thunder. Instead, the Clippers let it slip away.

Rudy Gobert after big loss to Clippers: 'Some of us just think about scoring' (Ball Don’t Lie)

Rudy Gobert’s Jazz are now just a half-game ahead of the Clippers in the West. The Utah Jazz have been one of the great successes of the 2016-17 season. Tabbed as a very likely playoff team heading into the season, the Jazz have met the upper bounds of those expectations and entered Saturday’s game at the Los Angeles Clippers in fourth place in the West, or 1 1/2 games up on their opponents for homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

Utah Jazz blog: John Stockton won’t give today’s stars a pass for resting

One summer during his Hall of Fame career, John Stockton bought a ticket to a baseball game. The legendary Jazz point guard won’t say who it was, but there was one player in particular he was going to see. Turns out, on that particular day, the guy sat out, didn’t play, rested.
“I was incensed,†Stockton recalled. “And I’ve never rooted or really particularly cared for that guy since.â€
Stockton played the full 82 games in 16 of his 19 seasons as a pro. So while the debate over NBA teams resting …

'4-foot-9' J.J. Barea can't help but laugh after ejection for pushing Blake Griffin (Ball Don’t Lie)

With the Mavs holding a 63-58 lead over the visiting Clips at American Airlines Center, Griffin and center DeAndre Jordan sidled up to the diminutive Barea to set a double-screen allowing point guard Chris Paul to get downhill and start attacking into the teeth of the Dallas defense. It’s a set we’ve seen L.A. run countless times, except this time, the Mavericks point guard took exception to Blake shoving his hand away and giving him an extra bump as he worked his way into screening position.

The members of the Utah Jazz’s 1997 NBA Finals team have been hanging out together the last couple of days in Salt Lake City, sharing a few laughs and memories of the best season in franchise history.
