We really don’t like what we saw out of the Clippers in Games 3 and 4 of this series, and we think that they could be in a heck of a lot of trouble when they head back home for Game 5 against the Grizz as well. Getting off shots in and of itself was difficult, but getting off quality shots was all the more virtually impossible against this Memphis defense. The argument could be made that the Grizzlies had home court advantage and desperation on their side in Games 3 and 4, but we think this is a trend that is going to continue in this series. We don’t like the way that most of the Clips are playing at the moment, and if you take away the play of G Chris Paul, you really don’t have a consistent performer in this series. Meanwhile, Memphis is taking advantage of the situation, turning defense into offense and getting enough points on the board to get the job done. The squad was particularly efficient in Game 4 when it shot 39-of-77 from the field in what amounted to definitively be the best offensive showing of the season by either team since Game 1 for the Clippers. Don’t be shocked if Memphis is able to come to town and steal Game 5 of this series as well to push LA’s back against the wall once and for all as these teams head back to the FedEx Forum later this week.
