Clippers vs Grizzlies Free Post May 12, 2012

The first round quarterfinal series between the Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies will be decided Sunday in Memphis. Game seven will send one team into the second round, while one team will go home for a long summer. Memphis has won two straight games to get to the seventh game, including a 90-88 win Friday night at Los Angeles.

Memphis took advantage of the hobbled Clippers in the sixth game. Superstars Blake Griffin and Chris Paul played, as everyone knew they would, but their games were not 100% and that showed. The Clippers however, were up by as many as eight points in the fourth quarter, but give the Grizzlies credit they clawed their way back into the game and gave themselves an all or nothing shot Sunday on their home court. With Paul nursing his hip flexor injuring, Eric Bledsoe played a key role for the Clippers scoring 14 points and dishing out six assists to offset Paul’s problems offensively.

Paul only managed 11 points on the night and seven assists and it was evident his explosiveness was no there, but Paul at 75% is better than most at 100%. Memphis did what they do best, hit the boards and got the ball down low to Zach Randolph and Mark Gasol. Mike Conley helped to run the offense and Rudy Gay, as always scored for Memphis when they most needed it.

The last game is on the line, players are injured, tempers are short and the next round is a game away. The current line has the Grizzlies as a 6 ½-point favorite after opening at 5 ½. The total is 182. With the injuries the Clippers have and the last game being played in Memphis, smart money takes the Grizzlies SU and ATS in this game, with the UNDER cashing out.
