The Los Angeles Clippers beat the Memphis Grizzlies by a score of 87-86, the difference a great play by Blake Griffin to end the 2nd quarter.
With the Clippers leading by 2 with 2.3 seconds remaining in the 2nd quarter the Grizzlies were taking the ball out underneath the basket. At worst Memphis would go into halftime only down by 2 points, but Griffin had other ideas. Griffin stole the ball near the three point line, then took two dribbles and slammed the ball home before time expired. What a play and as you can see by the final score this play decided the game.
With the win the Clippers take a 2-1 series lead. Griffin finished the game with 17 points.
