LOS ANGELES -- Forward Danny Granger has signed with the Los Angeles Clippers, adding more veteran depth for the clubs playoff push. Mike Pennel Jersey . The former All-Star joined the Clippers on Friday after his contract was bought out by the Philadelphia 76ers, who acquired him in a trade with Indiana last week. Granger cleared waivers shortly before Los Angeles announced the deal. Granger could play significant minutes for the Clippers (40-20), who lead the Pacific Division by four games over Golden State. He is coach Doc Rivers second major free-agent addition to the Clippers in the past week along with veteran big man Glen Davis. Despite the Clippers stellar record, theyre eager to add depth after several significant injury problems this season. Most recently, guard J.J. Redick has been out for nine games with a bulging disk in his lower back, and his status for the regular-season stretch is uncertain. The Pacers traded Granger to Philadelphia along with a second-round pick for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen. Granger had spent his entire nine-season NBA career in Indiana, becoming an All-Star in 2009 while averaging 25.8 points per game. Granger led the Pacers in scoring for five straight years, but he played in just five games last season while struggling with a knee injury. He then missed nearly the first two months of the current season with a strained left calf before returning to average 8.3 points and 3.6 rebounds in 29 games. Paul Georges emergence in Indiana made Granger expendable, but he could be a key contributor to the Clippers, who need depth and secondary scoring. Granger chose Los Angeles over several suitors, including Miami, Houston and San Antonio. Granger could make his debut for the Clippers at home on Saturday against New Orleans. The Clippers traded Antawn Jamison and Byron Mullens last week to clear roster spots for veteran additions for the stretch run, and Rivers has filled them with two of the biggest prizes available. Davis joined Los Angeles on Monday after his contract was bought out by the Orlando Magic. Davis, who played for Rivers in Boston, was averaging 12.1 points and 6.3 rebounds in 45 games this season. Davis made his Clippers debut on Wednesday in a victory over Houston, and the energetic big man got a standing ovation from the Staples Center crowd. The Clippers also added veteran Hedo Turkoglu last month. Los Angeles got good news Thursday on guard Jamal Crawford. The Clippers top reserve has no major structural damage in his strained left calf, and he hopes to miss only two games before returning next week.

Thats how the Ravens won when Ryan was their defensive co-ordinator from 2005-08, and that is precisely the formula Baltimore used to beat Ryans New York Jets on Sunday. Joe Flacco threw a 66-yard touchdown pass to Jacoby Jones, Justin Tucker kicked four field goals and the Ravens shut down the Jets sputtering offence in a 19-3 victory. The defending Super Bowl champion Ravens (5-6) had lost four of five before bouncing back to beat New York (5-6) and keep their playoff hopes alive. Jones had four catches for 103 yards and returned five punts for 108 yards. But Baltimore won on the strength of its defence. The unit forced three turnovers, limited the Jets to 220 yards and denied 11 of 12 third-down tries. Rookie Geno Smith completed nine of 22 passes for 127 yards and two interceptions, both by Corey Graham. "What can you say about our defence?" coach John Harbaugh said. "It was a dominant defensive performance." It was the fewest points allowed by Baltimore since December 2009, a 48-3 win over Detroit. "I feel like we were dialed in today," linebacker Terrell Suggs said. "Theres always a little something added when were playing Rex. Were proud of the fact what we didnt give up a touchdown, and getting off the field on third down was huge." New York had alternated wins and losses in its first 10 games, but the pattern ended here with its second straight defeat. Ryan, who also served as defensive line coach with Baltimore from 1999-2004, fell to 0-3 against his former team. "We knew, quite honestly, that their defence was going to be tough sledding," Ryan said. "With that, weve got to be more efficient on third down. Thats a big reason (for) the struggles. I thought we dropped too many balls, and thats where it started offensively. On defence, when youre playing in a game like that, you got to be sound, you got to be good and it has to be for 60 minutes. "Theres probably three or four plays that we werent in." The Ravens tried several ploys to spice up their stagnant offence, most notably using backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor in a variety of formations. Not only did Taylor receive a direct snap and run, but he also handed off the ball and caught a pass in his most extensive action of the season. None of it produced a touchdown, though, until Jones got behind former teammate Ed Reed and made a fine catch of Flaaccos deep throw before coasting into the end zone for a 19-3 lead with 5 seconds left in the third quarter. Jamal Adams Jersey. That was more than enough to dispose of the Jets, whose offence was so out of sync that they burned their third timeout of the second half with 14:53 left in the fourth quarter. Over his last six games, Smith has thrown 10 interceptions and one touchdown pass. "This is not on one individual," Ryan said. "This is on us, collectively." Obviously, thats the message Ryan conveyed to his players. "We got to back him up," offensive tackle Willie Colon said of Smith. "We didnt do that today." But Smiths numbers have created conjecture that Ryan might be close to changing quarterbacks. "Everybody always wants a new quarterback in there," Smith said. "I just keep trying to improve and work on myself. I know I can lead this team to the playoffs." Tucker kicked a 53-yard field goal for a 12-3 lead early in the third quarter after a 20-yard punt return by Jones gave Baltimore the ball at the New York 33. Graham subsequently ended two New York drives with interceptions in the third and fourth quarters. "They made some plays," Graham said, "but when it came down to it, we made the bigger plays. We knew we had to outplay their defence, and thats what we were able to do." Baltimores previous seven games were decided by six points or fewer, four of which resulted in losses. This was the Ravens most lopsided win since Sept. 22. "Its just a relief to get a win," linebacker Daryl Smith said. The Jets trailed 9-3 at halftime despite completing only three passes, gaining 73 yards, making three first downs and losing the ball after the snap hit the man in motion. Using Josh Cribbs in the wildcat formation on several plays, New York went up 3-0 with a drive in which Smith caught an 18-yard pass from Cribbs and completed an 18-yarder to Greg Salas. The Ravens answered with field goals on their next two possessions. The second kick was set up by a 60-yard completion from Flacco to Torrey Smith, who got behind Antonio Cromartie and made a nice over-the-shoulder grab. Tucker kicked another field goal just after the two-minute warning after tight end Ed Dickson caught two passes for 40 yards. Notes: The Ravens have at least one sack in 22 straight games, tying a franchise record. ... Jets LB Troy Davis left with a chest injury in the second half and did not return. ... Torrey Smith has 859 yards receiving, a new career high. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
