Now that they've had a couple of days to digest those back-to-back losses the suddenly rejuvenated Grizzlies shoved down their throats in Memphis, the Clippers are back home and eager to swing the momentum back in their favor in Game 5 of their first-round playoff series.
''Tomorrow's the biggest game of the season for us. We've got to win this game,'' All-Star point guard Chris Paul said Monday at the team's Playa Vista practice facility.
''We hoped to go undefeated throughout this whole thing, but this definitely makes us stronger. Now it's a three-game series. So we've got to come out with more energy, obviously, and with the same intensity in Game 5 as we did in Game 1 and 2. We've got to fight and scratch and play the way we know we can.''
That will require a dramatic reversal by the Clippers, who were outplayed at both ends of the court by Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol and Co. during Games 3 and 4. The 21-point rout on...

A couple of years ago, I wrote The Zach Randolph Gospel on ETSF, a work that was long overdue. I’ve always been a fan of Z-Bo, but I’ll admit that as much as I love the man’s game, I do take it for granted. It’s not an excuse or some sort of rationale to try [...]The post Zach Randolph Is A Man appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.
PLAYA VISTA, Calif. The Clippers didnt spend Monday scratching their heads at practice. They know exactly what they need to do to regain control of their first-round playoff series against the Memphis Grizzlies.

The ailment has caused the Clippers to consider Griffin as day-to-day, and he told reporters – including Arash Markazi of ESPN Los Angeles – that the injury got worse as the game went on."As the game went on, it got worse...
Ground and Pound
Tonight in Los Angeles, for the first time in the series, the road team won, setting up Memphis for a closeout game... but honestly, this was the closeout game. The Clippers never truly threatened, despite getting a huge amount of home court calls and a game for the ages from Chris Paul. The Grizz won without anyone really playing all *that* great, though Zach Randolph...
