If the Grizzlies are on one end and the Heat are on the other, the Clippers and Jazz are truly in the middle. Both these teams feature strong post players.

A comeback and a win for the Clippers

The road is full of potholes, and the Clippers almost fell into one Monday night. If they had, it wouldn't have been too surprising; teams don't go to EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City with big hopes.
