Grizzles vs Clippers Free Pick May 5, 2012

On May 5, the Los Angeles Clippers play host to the Memphis Grizzlies in game three of their western conference quarterfinals. The teams split the first two games of the series in Memphis.

In game one, the Clippers came back from 27 points to defeat the Grizzlies by a single point. However, in game two the Grizzlies were able to pull out a win 105-98. The Grizzlies had hoped they could put their fourth quarter collapse of game one behind them. Memphis was outscored in that quarter 35-13 by the Clippers. The results of game two are evidence that the Grizzlies did not keep those negative thoughts and went on to the next game.

The Grizzlies went back to what they do best. They hit the offensive boards hard and outscored the Clippers 46-38 down low in the paint and collected 16 offensive boards to just four for the Clippers. Memphis was much more aggressive in game two as they went to the free throw line 39 times to only 18 in game one. They also scored 18 second chance points in game two to just 6 in game one. Their transition game was much better as well. They scored 20 points off the transition compared to six in game one.

The depth for Los Angeles has been tested in the first two games. Los Angeles lost guard Caron Butler for up to six weeks following game one when he broke his hand. In game two, they lost Eric Bledsoe and Mo Williams, although the two are expected to play on Saturday in Los Angeles.

The Clippers comeback attempt in game two on Wednesday did not have the same results as game one. This time around, the Grizzlies stuck to their guns and played the same ball as what gave them the lead. They were actually able to increase their fourth quarter lead to 13 points and easily end the game with a seven-point advantage.

The current line has the Clippers as the favorite by 3 points with the total at 187 ½. Smart money takes the visiting Grizzlies plus the points with the total ending OVER.
