The Grizzlies have played well all season long and are led by a quality defensive team that is ranked fifth in the NBA in scoring defense letting up only 93 points per game. They also enter the playoffs riding a six game winning streak.
The Los Angeles Clippers have been in a year long battle with the Lakers in the Pacific division, a battle in which the Clippers ultimately lost to the Lakers by one game. The Clippers are a solid team that plays very balanced ball as the Clippers are scoring an average of 97.5 points per game, while giving up an average of 95 points per game. The Clippers have played well all year long, however there is some concern as the Clippers are on a two game losing streak heading into Sunday’s playoff match-up with the Grizzlies.
