Los Angeles vs. Memphis
As expected the series between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Memphis Grizzlies is a slugfest. Both teams have held serve at home while struggling to find answers on the road. It seems like the first team to break through with a road win will come out of the series victorious. Thus far Blake Griffin has shown flashes of brilliance, but this is the playoffs and more consistent play is needed if the Clippers want to advance to the next round. On the other side Zach Randolph is doing his part to keep the Grizzlies competitive by establishing his presence in the low post. So far he has been the MVP of this series. The wild card in all this of course is Chris Paul. As he goes so go the Clippers. When he's on his game getting everyone involved and hitting open shots LA is a dangerous team. When he's lethargic and passive they lose direction and focus. Tonight is a bigger game for Memphis than it is for LA and I think they will win tonight to make the series even more dramatic. Stay tuned.
