The LA Clippers have been trying to put the Memphis Grizzlies to sleep for awhile but they will have to struggle along some more as Memphis is still awake in the NFL playoffs. It took a supreme effort from the entire team but Memphis, and maybe it took this nothing to lose scenario to get the team fighting, but the Grizzlies played tough basketball, physical basketball, and it was just a little too much for the Clippers as the Grizzlies rolled ahead 92-80 last night in Memphis.
But this newfound grit will now have to find it’s way across the country and into Game 6 which will take place on the Clippers home court. No easy task as LA has been very good at home and still has the luxury of a one-game lead in the series. Of course, the Clippers would love nothing better than to give the home court a series win.
Grizzlies at Clippers tickets are already the hottest item in LA, as fans enjoy the luxury of having two teams capable of winning in the NBA. It’s going to be interesting to see how this all plays out. Chris Paul and crew have turned things around in LA and the great run is on. How far will it go?Eric Drouant
