Los Angeles Clippers vs. Memphis
The Los Angeles Clippers and the Memphis Grizzlies played a close game in their last meeting and by all acoounts this will be the trend for the series. The two teams are evenly matched and their contrasting styles make for interesting playoff basketball. Chris Paul is the catalyst for the Clippers and if he can get LA to play an up tempo pace it will give the Grizzlies problems. Memphis is not a great shooting team and they lack 3 point capability. That being said if they can pound the ball down low to Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol they have an advantage. Look for Memphis to win at home by a few and draw ever closer to tying the series at two games a piece.
