Heading into Wednesday’s game with Phoenix, Barnes is shooting 9.7 percent from the field (3for 31) and 5.6 percent from 3-point range (1 for 18) this preseason. “It’s just a rough stretch. Luckily, it’s only the preseason,” Barnes said last week. “Doc said he’s trying to figure out the starting lineup. He said he wants to bring me off the bench; I want to come off the bench. It’s just a matter of finding a rhythm, clearing my mind and playing basketball. “… It’s a process. I know I can play. It’s just a matter of finding my rhythm, finding my niche coming off the bench with the second unit.” Orange County Register

We spoke to DeAndre out in L.A. yesterday who told us he had NO IDEA Blake was being investigated by police for allegedly pulling a Zsa Zsa Gabor on a patron at Tao nightclub early Sunday morning. As we previously reported, Jordan was partying with Blake and several other Clippers teammates that night -- but tells TMZ Sports he has no recollection of Blake whipping out the pimp hand that night.

Barnes, instead, is surrounded by chaos. It has followed him “from the jump” in his life, and right now, with his on-court game struggling and off-court life in the tabloids, peace couldn’t be farther away. The gossip site TMZ is reporting about his split with wife Gloria Govan. (“Going through a divorce is never easy,” Barnes said. “But, my life has always been hectic.”) His spot in the starting lineup is at serious risk, and his on-court play has been a disaster in the preseason’s first five games.

“J.Crossover”, A Jamal Crawford documentary: The Crossover King Is a True Role Model. We had the pleasure of spending our summer in Seattle with the LA Clippers’ Jamal Crawford as he hosted his annual Seattle Pro-Am league. For two months, we captured highlights and conducted interviews with Pro-Am players like Isaiah Thomas & Tony Wroten as well as Seattle basketball legends like Gary Payton and Brandon Roy who talked to us about Jamal and how committed he is to giving back to his community. We also talked to Jamal about his basketball journey that started at home with a yellow Dr J basketball to playing pick-up games with the original Lob City crew of Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp while Crawford was still in high school to the University of Michigan and then to the NBA where he has been breaking records and throwing lobs to Blake Griffin as part of the modern day Lob City.
