Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph are proving to be a tough tag team.
They almost seem to be taking turns scoring, whether it's Randolph with his layups and putbacks or Gasol with his hooks and jumpers. The duo has helped Memphis dominate inside and take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series with a chance to eliminate the Los Angeles Clippers.
It's a flashback to 2011 when Memphis upset No. 1 seed San Antonio before pushing Oklahoma City to seven games in the semifinals.
Coach Lionel Hollins says he's been fortunate to have two premier post players able to play inside or outside, and pass as needed. Hollins says it's a luxury not many coaches have and he's grateful.
Game 6 is Friday night in Memphis.

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.

Under most circumstances, what goes up must come down.
However, last night during game five between the Memphis Grizzlies/Los Angeles Clippers, a shot attempted by Tony Allen got stuck on the back of the rim and didn’t come down:
Clearly, there was glue on the back of the rim on this one…
The Grizzlies have played the Los Angeles Clippers enough the past year to know that nothing is over until the final buzzer.
Sure, Blake Griffin is questionable with a sprained ankle and Chris Paul has a left thumb bruised. But the resilient Clippers are deep and talented.
That is why the Grizzlies are focusing only on themselves and their defense, the inside games of Zach Randolph...
PLAYA VISTA, Calif. For three games, the Clippers have tried in vain to slow down the Memphis Grizzlies in their first-round Western Conference playoff series.
For three games, they have failed miserably, unable to control the backboards, stop big men Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol or prevent Memphis from getting points in the paint.
So maybe, as Chris Paul suggested Friday, the...

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...
