Based on their starry backcourt and playoff run, the Wizards are rising. So why not take a run at LeBron James?
The Los Angeles Clippers hadn't even digested the final loss of their tumultuous season before they had to consider the growing possibility that owner Donald Sterling won't leave the club quietly.
When the Oklahoma City Thunder were down by 16 points and struggling to make any shot early in Game 6, they looked all but ready to fold up and head home for a series-deciding finale.
Chris Paul's teammates figure he might need more time to fully recover from his role in one of the ugliest playoff collapses in NBA history.
Kevin Durant says the Clippers are hanging all over him.
After being thoroughly outplayed for over 40 minutes, the Los Angeles Clippers fought back.
Russell Westbrook, who scored 27 points, missed a 3-pointer and Serge Ibaka's tip attempt was too late at the buzzer, allowing the Clippers to salvage a game they trailed until the final 1:23.
Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are back to their old selves after getting thrashed by 17 points to open their series against Los Angeles.
Neither team budged through three tight quarters. Then the Thunder went to a smaller lineup in the fourth and the Clippers' defense shriveled.
Kevin Durant has plenty of scoring titles. Now, he finally has an MVP trophy to go with them.
Chris Paul is usually about assists - he led the league in that category this season, and his popular television commercials focus on them.
The Oklahoma City Thunder star won the NBA's top individual honor Tuesday, grabbing 119 first-place votes. James, who had won the last two MVP awards and four of the previous five, finished second with six first-place votes and Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers was third.
Chris Paul got the best of Russell Westbrook in a matchup of two of the league's best point guards.
When the final buzzer sounded on the longest week of the Los Angeles Clippers' careers, they felt more exhaustion than elation. While coach Doc Rivers high-fived fans and pumped his fist at the crowd, Blake Griffin and Chris Paul quietly congratulated each other.
"We definitely have to go through this," Griffin said. "Winning - nobody has the formula. The more I lose, every time I lose, every time we lose as a team, it's like I figure out how not to do it. I don't want to keep this up, but it is a necessary adversity that you have to go through as a player to get to where you want. I've heard guys say that makes it that much sweeter when you do win."
"I don't anticipate that being how it's going to be," Griffin said. "And if it still is, I'll make a decision then, but it's not something that's ideal."
