Grizzlies vs Clippers Free Pick May 11, 2012

May 10, 2012

The western conference quarterfinal series between the Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies will continue Friday night in Los Angeles. Memphis beat the Clippers in game five 92-80. The series is now 3-2 in favor of the Clippers. One of the Clippers best players, Blake Griffin, their leading scoring and rebounder was injured in game five. He sprained his right knee.

The play that injured Griffin was a physical play by Grizzlies big man Marc Gasol. Griffin did not stay on the floor long after he was hurt and the entire Clippers bench came out on the court to see what happened.

Griffin was able to finish the third quarter and play some of the fourth quarter on the knee. He actually helped the Clippers come back from a 24 deficit to be down by just six at one point. On Thursday, Griffin will get an MRI on his knee to see if there is any damage.

Chris Paul, the Clippers other superstar also hurt himself in the game. He jammed his middle finger on his shooting hand, but said it did not affect his game. However, he only had five points at halftime and was quiet for most of the game. He also slightly sprained his hip flexor but said he would be fine.

The Grizzlies were able to hit the boards with Zach Randolph and Gasol. On the defensive end, the Grizzlies tied up the strong side of the Clippers offense. Game six will be important to the Clippers, as they will be at home to face the Grizzlies and can eliminate them without worrying about returning to Memphis to play in a seventh game.

The line opened with the Clippers as 2-point favorites at home with the total at 183. That line could change once both Griffin and Paul have been checked medically and a determination is made on their playing status. Nevertheless, the Grizzlies plus the points is where smart money will be placed.
