Los Angeles Clippers vs. Memphis
When the Memphis Grizzlies take on the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center this evening they are a team on fire. The Griz have won 12 of their last 14 games and currently have a 1/2 game lead for the 3rd seed in the Western conference. Most experts (including myself) thought Memphis would struggle after trading all star Rudy Gay, but Marc Gasol, Mike Conley, and a healthy Zach Randolph have picked up the slack. The Clippers are finally getting a full compliment of players as well and easily have the deepest bench in basketball. Jamal Crawford, Grant Hill, Lamar Odom Matt Barnes, and Eric Bledsoe all have the ability to contribute on any given night. These teams are evenly matched on paper, but Memphis played last night and you know how I feel about back to back games. The Clippers will win, but not by a lot.
