Can't beleive Memphis. I was in shock watching this game at the end. Memphis didn't even get a shot off for most of those posessions it was bad.

i actually watched the whole game...i'm not really sure why i didn't turn it off after the first half.

as bad as the clips were for the first 3 quarters, memphis was 3x worse in the final Q.

that was the clips' championship, they're still a flawed team, and memphis is just too well-rounded. i still say this series goes memphis in 6.

Good game overall.

Rudy Gay is such an enigma. He's devastating when catches it and plays 18 feet in, but then you see him catch it at the 3 pt line and start dribbling and running pick and rolls and he looks like the worst creator in the history of basketball. Hes likely 2nd in terms of worst passers at the SF position behind Maggette. It hurts watching him run pick and roll to only face the hedge of the screener and just keep dribbling and running out the clock instead of making the quick move or pass.

Randolph adjusted well this game on offence, he picked his spots better and didnt force it as much. You can see though he has 0 lift in his legs. I know he couldnt jump before but now hes beyond Andre Miller level of jumping. All his half hooks which is his sig shot are short.

OJ Mayo is beasting. I've always loved him as a player, and I hope he continues to play with this kind of confidence.

CP3 played great again but I think the Clippers biggest problem was not playing Young/Williams enough. Foye and Simmons werent doing much, and it only makes sense to have the 2 gunners off the bench be in the game at the end opening things up on offence. Its not like anyone was doing a good job on Gay anyway.

Lastly, the usage rate of Marc Gasol in this series is criminal. They need to find more ways of getting him the ball in the post and off of screen roll especially moving forward if they want to advance deep in to the playoffs.

Cant wait for game 3. This has been by far the best series as expected.

As much as I love Reggie, they had him on the court far to long in the second half last night.

I thought both Griffin, and Jordan were playing far better defense then they were in game one - and Reggie was just creating extra traffic for Paul and company to deal with on the offensive end.

I came into this cheering for the Griz, but Reggie is making me root for the Clips at this point.

Refs suck in this game. First they have a real skirmish with people pushing each other and dont have the guts to call anything as they would have toss out Griffin. Then seconds later they give tech for a guy who makes a screen a bit late (50/50 if it even was a moving screen) then gets Paul yelling at him and responds something (assuming he said something to get the tech). If something then Paul should have gotten a T out of that.

Wow, big time 3 by Rudy Gay to give Memphis a shot in this game.

13/30 from the FT line and they still won. I dont know how anyone questions CP3 being the best PG in the NBA with what he's done with his NO teams as well as this Clippers team. I really hope in the offseason they can build on what they started this year.

I still expect the Grizz to win the series though.

CP3 is dominating despite having possibly the best defensive wing in the NBA on him.

Grizzlies need to find a way to get Marc Gasol more involved in the offense.
