After watching Game 5 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals between the Grizzlies and the Clippers, we were all set to back up the truck on the Grizz in Game 6… And then came this -6.5 price. Memphis is a great team, but it isn’t in a position where it should be laying a full touchdown in a playoff game under any reasonable circumstance. F Blake Griffin has an ankle sprain that might keep him out of the lineup, but we have to think if he can walk, he’s going to get back out there and play with desperation now officially in place for the Clip Joint. G Chris Paul has been magnificent in this series, and though he has been dealing with a bad thumb as well, he has clearly been the best player on the court. The bigs of F Zach Randolph and C Marc Gasol have been destroying LA in the paint, either directly through scoring or indirectly through creating open shots for others. Still, we have to take our chances in this game with the points. There’s a good chance that the winner of this game will only be in the 80s, and it isn’t going to take all that much from the Clips – perhaps 85 points or so – to be able to ensure the cover when push comes to shove.
Clippers @ Grizzlies Game 6 Pick: Los Angeles Clippers +6.5
Clippers @ Grizzlies Game 6 Prediction: Memphis 90 – Los Angeles 85
