O.J. Mayo scored 10 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter, and the Memphis Grizzlies bounced back to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 105-98 on Wednesday night.
The Grizzlies blew a 27-point lead in losing Sunday night and letting the Clippers grab home-court advantage in the best-of-seven, first-round Western Conference series. They got back to their physical style and evened the series.
Game 3 is Saturday in Los Angeles.
Rudy Gay also scored 21 points as Memphis showed off its depth with six players reaching double figures. Mike Conley had 19, Zach Randolph 15, Marreese Speights 11 and Tony Allen 10.
All-Star guard Chris Paul led the Clippers with 29 points. Blake Griffin had 22, and Mo Williams and Nick Young 11 apiece.
The Grizzlies had the lead going into the fourth quarter for a second straight game. This time, the Clippers got no closer than four.

AROUND THE WEB
Everyone was going nuts last night about Marc Gasol getting two in the stink during the Grizzlies-Clippers game. Of course the emails rolled in this morning. “Why are you guys late on the Gasol video?” Sorry, woke up a little foggy this morning after a Wednesday night bender in NYC. That meant lots of whiskey and like 5 hours of sleep.
Anyway, Gasol got fingered and the Internet...
WHERE THE SUN DON'T SHINE
A young Memphis Grizzlies fan wearing a Zach Randolph jersey screamed with excitement and waved his towel in the air when Randolph made a key lay-up down the stretch of Wednesday night's 105-98 playoff win over the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Grizzlies bench had it going, and at times OJ Mayo was the down-the-stretch scorer that Memphis had envisioned when they swapped Kevin Love for him in 2008.
Over the years, I've seen some pretty interesting celebratory fan photos but this one ranks up their as one of the best.It comes from last night's Clippers/Grizzlies game two as this little Memphis Grizzlies fan got all excited that the team would win game two:Put him in coach, he's got a shooting sleeve on.....
That’s almost two in the stink right there.
I understand what this Grizzlies fan was trying to do when center Marc Gasol fell at his feet during Game 2 action against the Clippers, but there had to be a better way of giving the fallen Gasol a helping hand. Like maybe giving the 7-footer an actual hand, and not just a couple of fingers that look suspiciously like they’re heading...
Eh, nevermind. Don’t. I don’t trust you.
Just promise you’ll never do this if you ever sit court-side at a basketball game. Some Grizzlies fan got a little too excited during Wednesday’s Clippers-Grizzlies playoff game.

MEMPHIS -- The Memphis Grizzlies were in their comfort zone Wednesday night. That is, in a tight, possession-to-possession game instead of holding a 20-plus-point lead. The Grizzlies, forced to keep their focus throughout, scored a 105-98 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round series. The teams are tied one game apiece as they...
The Memphis Grizzlies won game 2 of their first round playoff match up against the Clippers bringing the series all even at 1-1. Whenever Lob City is the subject of conversation, a dunk must spotlighted. DeAndre Jordan over Tony Allen. I love dunks, can’t deny that. But my wish for the offseason (not that I’m planning [...]

Or, “honk honk”.
Earlier today we wrote about Charles Barkley calling out UFC/WWE star Brock Lesnar during last night’s Clippers/Grizzlies game, but the most threatening moment of the night goes to the guy in the front row who decided to jam two fingers up Marc Gasol’s asshole when the opportunity presented himself.
I don’t know if he’s trying to goose him or bounce...
