With injuries and a 66 Game season weighing heavy on the results of this years’ NBA playoffs, the western conference 4 and 5 seeds are surely putting on the best series of the first round.
Entering the game with a 2-1 lead the Los Angeles Clippers and a Staples Center crowd full of red-shirted fans believed the Clips would take a commanding lead and they sure did.
All-Star Clippers Chris Paul and Blake Griffin led L.A. in monster ways contributing to the huge win. Griffin broke out of his postseason shell with 30 points and 7 assist before fouling out in Overtime and Paul was amazing with 27 points 9 rebounds and 7 assist.
Memphis fought hard to stay in the game but once again they fell short. Mike Conley put up a career playoff high with 25 points and Rudy Gay added 23 on 8 of 25 shooting. The Grizz have another shot Wednesday night at home and back in L.A. Friday for game 6 if necessary.
The winner of this series will face the number one seed San Antonio Spurs in the West Semi Finals.
