Jay-Z is a good NBA scout

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — During the Clippers/Nets game a few nights ago, the Nets hung around and kept the game competitive, until the Clippers clinched the game with a trio of alley-oops from Chris Paul to DeAndre Jordan in the game’s final three minutes.

Basketball rims are mad at the Clippers

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — When the Los Angeles Clippers traded for Chris Paul, and started throwing alley oops to Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, “Lob City” was born. Fun was had by all! Well, not quite all. As it turns out, rims across the NBA were not so thrilled. In this video from Funny or Die and the Clippers, the fictional National Association of Rims asks you not to vote for the Clippers for the All-Star Game, to ensure we have an All-Star Game that’s full of jump shots.

Chris Paul turned into a dunking machine

ALL BALL NERVE CENTERChris Paul is about six feet tall, and unlike his Los Angeles Clippers teammates Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, Paul’s game has always been played closer to the floor than to the rim. But for some reason, last night in Washington, Paul couldn’t stop dunking. First he got a breakaway dunk in the first quarter, his first dunk of the season, where he finished with a two-handed flush that brought the Clippers bench to their feet. Then, a quarter later, apparently feeling emboldened, Paul drove to the basket and #POSTERIZED rookie Kelly Oubre, drawing a foul.

These were such momentous occurrences that Paul himself took to Instagram following the game to commemorate the evening…

OHHHH DIPPPPPPPP!!!!!

The Los Angeles Clippers begin their Quest

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Winning an NBA title is no easy feat — the regular season is a marathon, not a sprint, and then once you arrive at the postseason, there are usually all kinds of obstacles to overcome. So in this new spot from TNT, we see the Clippers on their “quest” for a championship. Last week we saw the Cavs’ commercial, which involved a desert and a camel.
