In case you haven’t heard, the Los Angeles Clippers blew all of our minds last night and came back from a 27-point deficit to beat the Memphis Grizzlies 99-98 in Game One of their first-round playoff series.
The Clippers finished the game on a 28-3 run, and made their huge comeback thanks largely to a group of reserves who played their tails off. One of those guys was Eric Bledsoe who finished the game with nine points, four rebounds, two assists and one sick spin move and finish.
In the above video Bledsoe abuses Memphis’ Mike Conley by spinning past the helpless point guard and finishing at the rim with a gorgeous lay-up.
The second-year guard out of Kentucky stepped up and kept the offense moving when things looked their worst midway through the game, before Chris Paul reasserted himself late in the contest. Along with Nick Young and Reggie Evans, Bledsoe was a huge part of the team’s gigantic, comeback road win.
