The Clippers (2-1) are still fine in the series after dropping Game 3 to the Grizzlies in Memphis. The Clippers only scored 82 points and were out-rebounded by 12 boards. Blake Griffin led the team in scoring with 16 points but only added two rebounds, which is normally one of his strong suits. Matt Barnes scored 12 points off the bench in 26 minutes but was only 2 of 6 shooting from the field. Chris Paul scored just eight points in 35 minutes and if the Clippers are going to win this series, they are going to need a lot more from him on the offensive end. Jamal Crawford, a close runner-up for the 6th man of the year, scored just 10 points off the bench.
I wrote in one of my earlier previews that the only way the Grizzlies (1-2) will have a chance at this series is if they pounded Zach Randolph inside and scored a bunch of points in the paint. This happened in Game 3; Randolph scored 27 points on 9 of 18 shooting and brought down 11 rebounds.
The Grizzlies have covered two out of the three games of the series.
I give the advantage in Game 4 to the Grizzlies on their home floor. The series will be knotted up as the teams head back to Los Angeles for Game 5 at online sportsbooks.
