Jamal Crawford came off L.A.'s bench for 10 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, four assists and three steals in 29 minutes during Tuesday's road victory.

Crawford passed Pete Maravich on the NBA's all-time scoring list tonight, though in fairness Pistol Pete played 10 seasons while Crawford is in his 15th season. The Clippers' regular season is over and they're currently the No. 2 seed in the West, but they could fall depending upon the results of Wednesday's games. No matter what happens, L.A. has to feel confident heading into the postseason without any players on the injury report.
Apr 15 - 1:37 AM

Chris Paul scored 22 points with six 3-pointers, six assists, two steals, one block and one turnover in just 29 minutes of action on Tuesday, playing in his 82nd game of the season.

CP3 ramped up his scoring to a season-best 22.6 points per game in March, followed by 20.3 points in April, and he's showing no signs of fatigue despite playing 82 games for the first time in his NBA career. It's worth mentioning that Paul's six 3-pointers tonight were a career-high and they came against a Suns' defense which ranks No. 8 in fewest 3-pointers against.
Apr 15 - 1:31 AM

Blake Griffin finished Tuesday's game with 20 points (8-of-14 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), eight rebounds, five assists, two steals and only one turnover on 29 minutes.

By virtue of tonight's road victory, the Clippers guaranteed themselves the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference. They could assume the No. 2 spot but that's out of their hands -- L.A.'s regular season is over, and they'd need both San Antonio and Houston to lose on Wednesday. All signs point to a first-round playoff matchup of the Clippers vs. the Grizzlies.
Apr 15 - 1:22 AM

Chris Paul scored 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds, nine assists and two steals in the Clippers' 110-103 win over the Nuggets on Monday.

Paul is working on an 82-game season and the Clippers can finish with either the two, three or five-seeds. They'll bring out their A-game against the Suns on Tuesday and watch the scoreboard both that night and on Wednesday as the rest of the West playoff teams finish their final games. Blake Griffin added 22 points, nine boards, eight assists, two blocks and an 8-of-9 mark from the line, DeAndre Jordan went for 20 and 21 with one steal and four blocks, and J.J. Redick scored 20 points with three treys in the win.
Apr 14 - 5:30 AM

Matt Barnes scored 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting (including three treys) with one rebound, one assist and one block in 30 minutes against the Nuggets on Monday.

Barnes was dealing with swelling in his toe over the weekend and though the activity numbers may have reflected that tonight -- it's good to see him on the floor and playing through it. The Clippers will play Tuesday's game with the intention of winning to improve their seeding, and on a light night he's worth starting.
Apr 14 - 5:26 AM

Jamal Crawford had another dud in Monday's win, scoring just three points on 1-of-6 shooting with one rebound, one assist and one steal in 23 minutes.

Crawford is still knocking the rust off and Tuesday's game against the Suns has plenty of meaning, so the Clips can't exactly give him the ball with the sole purpose of getting on track. Depending on one's format though, he could be worth streaming if you have low expectations going in.
Apr 14 - 5:23 AM

Lester Hudson was re-signed by the Clippers because Doc Rivers likes his defense.

"I liked his toughness," Rivers said. "I like his defense. He has a chance to be a really good defensive player in our program." Hudson was chosen over fan favorite Nate Robinson, but he's not going to have a real role once the playoffs begin.
Apr 13 - 10:44 AM

Matt Barnes admitted that his divorce was a distraction earlier in the season.

"You have two hurt ex-husband and wives acting out in public and then there's kids involved," Barnes said. "It was a mess." Barnes has taken a step back in April after a torrid March, as he's averaging just 8.8 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.4 triples on 39.5 percent shooting, including 23.3 percent from downtown. Last month, Barnes shot 44.7 percent overall and 41.0 percent from behind the three-point line.
Apr 13 - 9:37 AM

Matt Barnes is dealing with a lot of swelling in his toe after Saturday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

Barnes said his toe swelled up like a balloon and that it was a similar injury to the one he had in the playoffs last season. The Clippers obviously don't want him to carry an injury into the playoffs, so it's possible that he sees some time on the shelf. We will update his status once we know more, but we will consider him questionable for Monday's game vs. Denver. If Barnes misses time, J.J. Redick, Jamal Crawford and Hedo Turkoglu would benefit. Barnes finished with nine points, five boards, two assists and one steal in 35 minutes vs. the Grizzlies.
Apr 12 - 1:23 AM

Chris Paul handled his business against the Grizzlies during a 94-86 win on Saturday, scoring 15 points with five boards, 14 assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

This game probably seals his crown for dimes per game and he's certainly going to win the total dime distinction. Thanks to staying healthy, CP3 has 52 more assists than second place (John Wall). If you drafted him, you probably stole him due to all the knee injuries he had leading up to this season.
Apr 12 - 1:19 AM

DeAndre Jordan made 6-of-7 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line for 16 points with 16 boards, three steals and two blocks.

He's not supposed to be this good from the line. In fact, he hasn't made over 70 percent from the line with at least three attempts in any game in 2015 before tonight. Jordan's fantasy owners shouldn't care by now thanks to the boards, field goal percentage and blocks.
Apr 12 - 1:11 AM

Blake Griffin made 6-of-21 from the field for 18 points against the Grizzlies on Saturday with eight boards, six assists, one block and two steals in 38 minutes.

The kick-out passes were going to Blake in bunches, but he couldn't knock them down. Griffin was actually on a roll before this sub-par outing with seven straight games of making at least 50 percent from the field. Plus, he's handed out at least five dimes in each of his last eight games. He's a complete player.
Apr 12 - 1:08 AM

Matt Barnes left Saturday's game vs. the Grizzlies with an apparent foot injury but will be able to return for the second half.

It was never expected to be anything serious, and it looks like he should be fine moving forward. We will have another update after the game.
Apr 11 - 11:10 PM

The Clippers will sign Lester Hudson.

He will likely be available for Saturday against the Grizzlies, but the Clippers won't need him. Hudson is not worth owning in any league unless coach Doc Rivers rests multiple guards.
Apr 11 - 6:03 PM

The Clippers have let Lester Hudson's 10-day contract expire, and they are reportedly going to decide between him and Nate Robinson before the end of the season.

Head coach Doc Rivers said they will fill the final roster spot for sure, but one would think that they will likely prefer to bring back Robinson if his knee shows improvement. We will watch this story closely, but owners in deeper fantasy leagues should move on at this point.
