Fans of the Memphis Grizzlies likely still are smarting a bit in light of Chris Paul’s late-game heroics. CP3′s incredible buzzer beater allowed the Los Angeles Clippers to take a commanding 2-0 series lead over their beloved NBA team courtesy of the Clips’ win on Monday by a score of 93-91. So it should come as no surprise that members of the greater Memphis community have felt the need to express their displeasure, disappointment and animosity about the outcome of the game. And of course, the vitriol is directed squarely at the Clippers and not the Grizzlies for getting down so quickly in the series. Even one business owner (and certainly not the first time a sign has been used for sports-related discourse) — or the folks in charge of putting up the text on the sign located outside this particular business — are getting in on the Clippers haterade action. Outdoors Inc. — a business dedicated to “outfitting human powered recreation” according to its sign — recently put up the foll...

Chris Paul’s buzzer-beating Game 2 shot was very good, but toss the phantom camera treatment on it and you have some Internet gold. Paul’s running jumper against Tony Allen handed the Clippers a 93-91 victory and a 2-0 lead in the series.

Unfortunately, for backup point guard...

With the game tied at 91 in Game 2 between the Clippers and Grizzlies, the Clippers had eight second to make a shot or head into overtime against a feisty Memphis squad that wasn't backing down.
So who do the Clippers turn to when they need a bucket? Jamal Crawford? Blake Griffin? Chauncey Billups? Nope, try Chris Paul.
Paul caught the ball way beyond the 3-point arch and...
The Big Leagues Until the officials had to ruin all the fun, that is.
While the game-winning show by Chris Paul is the biggest highlight out of the Clippers-Grizzlies game 2 match-up, courtesy of Larry Brown Sports we have one of the more funny highlights out of the game.
