    Who Wins? Clippers-Grizzlies Preview

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- The Grizzlies have played the Los Angeles Clippers enough the past year to know that nothing is over until the final buzzer.

    Sure, Blake Griffin is questionable with a sprained ankle and Chris Paul has a left thumb bruised. But the resilient Clippers are deep and talented.

    That is why the Grizzlies are focusing only on themselves and their defense, the inside games of Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol, along with the work ethic they call grit and grind. They are 3-0 in Game 6s, and they lead the Clippers 3-2 going into Friday night's contest in this first-round, best-of-seven series.

    But Memphis has lost both Game 7s the franchise has played in the past two playoffs - at Oklahoma City in 2011 and on the Grizzlies' own court a year ago to these same Clippers.

    ''We've had to deal with just growing pains I think in the playoffs, and hopefully all those experiences will help us come tomorrow and we'll be able to get it done,'' Grizzlies guard Mike Conley said Thursday.

    If CP3 and Griff are out, Deandre Jordan gotta step it up. But i think Jordan (no not michael jordan Razz) is going to have some hard times through the Memphis defense, the fact that they are one of the best defensive wise teams in the NBA. However, on Memphis' side, all defense isn't going to get them through all the way.
