Mounting injuries the latest hurdle for Clippers

MEMPHIS, Tenn. Looking down the Clippers bench in the fourth quarter was a sight for sore eyes and fingers, elbows and forearms. Seating alongside Caron Butler, his left hand wrapped in a splint, and Chauncey Billups, his left foot in a boot, was Eric Bledsoe, who was grabbing his left elbow, and Mo Williams, who was wincing as he flexed his right forearm. Farther down the line...

Marc Gasol almost received an impromptu prostate exam from a fan sitting courtside

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...

Clippers hurting for Game 3 against Grizzlies

MEMPHIS, Tenn. Looking down the Clippers' bench in the fourth quarter was a sight for sore eyes and fingers, elbows and forearms.

Grizzlies rough up Clippers to even series

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 Memphis Grizzlies won game 2 of their first round playoff match up against the Clippers bringing the series all even at 1-1.
