    Clippers guard Lou Williams conceded he could have made “a better-quality decision” after being forced to miss NBA games because he visited a strip club in Atlanta. Williams, the reigning Sixth Man of the Year, had been allowed to leave the NBA’s ‘bubble’ in Orlando last month to return to Georgia to attend the wake of a friend’s father. Under NBA rules, Williams was then due to observe a four-day quarantine period upon his return to Florida, yet that was extended to 10 days — a period encompassing the Clippers’ first two games — after it emerged he also took a trip to the gentlemen’s club, Magic City, in Atlanta. The 33-year-old is a frequent visitor to Magic City — a place also renowned for its chicken...

    After undergoing a four-month hiatus, the 2019-20 NBA season is finally back to action and recently featured the clash between the two best teams in the Western Conference – the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers. With a 103-101 victory on Thursday night, the Lakers have succeeded to even their score with the Clippers. In the fourth regular-season matchup between the two Los Angeles teams, Jonathan Tjarks of The Ringer noticed one major thing that could prevent the Clippers from fully dominating the Western Conference and bringing home their first Larry O’Brien Trophy this year. With the way they created their roster, the Clippers have plenty of players that could guard and limit LeBron James’ production on the...
    During the NBA opening night in October, the LA Clippers beat the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers took revenge by beating them on NBA’s reopening night yesterday. In a closely contested game, the Lakers won by just two points, taking advantage of an off-night from the Clippers. But the Clippers were also without two of their main players. Lou Williams missed the game due to quarantine. On the other hand, Montrezl Harrell was absent, since he hasn’t returned to the bubble after leaving due to a family emergency. Due to this, Lakers legend and Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal was left unimpressed by his former team’s performance. During the NBA on TNT show, he said, “I would like to see...
    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — From the night this NBA season began, to the night it began again, the Lakers-Clippers has carried the feel of a heavyweight bout. In March, each team seemed trim, limber, ready to contend. After a hiatus unlike any in the sport’s history at four-and-a-half months long, the Lakers and Clippers felt ungainly and awkward with lurching stops and starts — two fighters not quite in their primes, still circling and feeling one another out. But what LeBron James in particular lacked in finesse, he finished off a 103-101 Lakers win (50-14) with pure will, sliding in front of Clippers stars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George on the same possession to force up an errant final...

A highly competitive match where Paul George slung the Clippers over the shoulder and ended the night with 30 points. LeBron James was silent 47 minutes, but woke up at the indicated time, in the last play he threw for the basket of the winner, but failed, however himself recovered the rebound when jumping surrounded by white jerseys to achieve the victory basket.

    The NBA returns Thursday night with a two-game slate capped by Lakers vs. Clippers, a marquee matchup between arguably the best teams in the Western Conference.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — The Los Angeles Clippers will resume their coronavirus-interrupted season by facing off with the Lakers, but they will do so without guard Lou Williams. Williams, 33, had been excused from the so-called NBA bubble at Disney World in Florida to attend a funeral, but then was photographed at the strip club, Magic City, in Atlanta last Thursday.

    By now, the news about how and why LA Clippers star Lou Williams left the bubble must have become familiar among NBA fans. The league veteran exited the Orlando bubble for personal reasons which was to visit the viewing of Paul G. Williams, who happened to be the father of a close family friend. However, Williams did not return into the bubble straight back. He took a small detour for dinner and relished a nice time at “Magic City” in Atlanta. The Clippers player has publicly stated in the past that this particular gentleman’s club is his favorite in the world. Moreover, Magic City’s great gesture for Lou Williams would have only made him visit them even more....

    The Netflix documentary The Last Dance celebrates the unknown side of Michael Jordan and his dream team. But for a few people, it was Dennis ‘The Worm’ Rodman who caught their eyes. The flashy personality of Dennis never came between him and the quality of his game. LA Clippers power forward Montrezl Harrell agrees to this. The 26-YO was drafted in 2015 and has shown decent growth ever since. When the Houston Rockets drafted him, Harrell would not get enough playing time. Later on, he signed a three-year deal worth $3.1 Million and bettered exponentially his average playing time. This also reflected positively on his overall career statistics.

    The LA Clippers are gradually cementing their place as the team to beat in the west. Upon signing Kawhi Leonard and Paul George in the same year, they have become a mighty force to reckon with.

The Clippers announced the new contract Sunday, but did not divulge the terms of the agreement. Noah had signed a 10-day contract with the team on March 9. Just 2 days later the NBA suspended its season because of the coronavirus pandemic. Noah is a two-time NBA All-star and former NBA Defensive Player of the Year. He played in 42 games for the Memphis Grizzlies last season. The NBA will resume the season on July 30 with the Clippers-Lakers kicking off an abbreviated tournament at Walt Disney World Resort.

The two-time All-Star averaged 7.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 42 games for Memphis last season. Noah originally signed with the Clippers on March 9, two days before the NBA put its season on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic. The 35-year-old center was the 2014 defensive player of the year. Noah provides the Clippers with playoff experience and additional depth at the position.
