Default WC PLAYOFFS RD 1 : (4)LA CLIPPERS vs (5)MEM GRIZZLIES

STARTERS:

LAC

Chris Paul
Chauncey Billups
Caron Butler
Blake Griffin
DeAndre Jordan

MEM

Mike Conley
Tony Allen
Tayshaun Prince
Zach Randolph
Marc Gasol

KEY ROTATION PLAYERS:

LAC

Eric Bledsoe
Jamal Crawford
Matt Barnes
Lamar Odom

MEM

Jeryd Bayless
Quincy Pondexter
Ed Davis
Darrell Arthur

Key Matchups:

Like last year, this should be a fantastic series, with each team imposing their tempo and style on the other at different points in the series. I think the deciding factor will be how much MEM uses Gasol on offence, as when they utilized him last year, he mutilated Jordan, and when they didn't, their offence died. I still have no idea why they go away from him possessions at a time on offence with him being their best all around offensive player and facilitator. I think ultimately he won't be used as much as he should, MEM will struggle on offence at key points, and CP3 will put them away in game 7.

PREDICTION:

LAC IN 7

Taking Memphis in 7,they'll slow down the Clips,make it a half court game and pound them inside.

Repeat of last year.

The Clippers have the best player, Memphis have the best coach. The Clippers have depth, Memphis arguably slightly more talent in the starting lineup.

Picking Memphis this time. No good reason, it's just their turn. Wouldn't bet any money on them.

They had the better record but San Antonio won the division so they couldn't get into the top 4

Interesting series. Memphis takes it in 6 because of shut down defense.

Ed Davis 6/5 in 10min


seems a tad slow but considering it's his first playoff game, not a bad game.
