NBA admits referees made mistake in Clippers-Warriors playoff game

The National Basketball Association has announced that the referees blew a foul call late in the Game 1 Playoff contest involving the Los Angeles Clippers-Golden State Warriors.

In the Warriors win on Saturday, the call would have given the LA Clippers a chance to tie the score.

The call involved Clippers point guard Chris Paul who lost the ball out of bounds with 18.9 seconds to go in the game. Golden State was leading 107-105  and eventually won 109-105.

the NBA’s president for basketball operations Rod Thorn said in a statement that Draymond Green of the Warriors should have been whistled for a foul, which Paul would have been given a chance to shoot two free throws.

Clippers decide not to renew Vinny Del Negro’s contract

The Los Angeles Clippers are no longer the whipping boys of the NBA any longer and are on even ground in the City of the Lost Angels with the Lakers.

Despite all of that, their head coach will not be around to continue the improvement.

Vinny Del Negro, who’s current contract expires at the end of June, will not be given a new one.

The Clippers won their first Pacific Division title this season, but lost in the first round of the NBA playoffs.

This season, the team won a franchise-record 56 games and had a 17-game winning streak.

Del Negro is just the second coach to leave the Clippers with a winning record; Larry Brown is the other in 1993.

Del Negro, a North Carolina State graduate and former NBA player, went 128-102 in the regular season in three seasons and the Clippers were in the playoffs the past two years.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have proven that they can win without second year All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving.

But when they’re playing one of the NBA’s top echelon teams in the Los Angeles Clippers, his services were definitely missed.

The Cavaliers played for the third straight game without Irving and it showed in a 105-89 loss.

Jamal Crawford, Chris Paul, and Blake Griffin led the Clippers to their 43rd win of the season. They lead the NBA’s Pacific Division by 9 games over the surprising Golden State Warriors.

Prior to last night’s game, Los Angeles had not won a game in Cleveland dating back 10 losses in a row to 2002.

Crawford scored 24 points,  Paul dished out 15 assists and  Griffin scored 16 and pulled down 11 rebounds.

The Cavs were led by rookie Dion Waiters with 17 points.

Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin was named the Rookie of the Year on Wednesday after a landslide vote, becoming the NBA’s first unanimous choice for the award in 21 years.

Griffin received every first-place vote from all 118 media members, easily beating Washington Wizards point guard John Wall.

The 6-foot-10-inch former Oklahoma star is the first to win the award unanimously since David Robinson of the San Antonio Spurs in 1990, and just the third unanimous selection in NBA history since Ralph Sampson in 1984.

Griffin’s season one one to remember, as he led all rookies in scoring, finishing 12th in the league at 22.5 and rebounding, finishing 4th in the league at 12.1. He played all 82 games for the Clippers, won the NBA’s slam dunk contest and was the NBA’s first rookie All-Star since Yao Ming in 2003.
