LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Blake Griffin says he received treatment on his back for the spasms that affected him in the Los Angeles Clippers' regular-season finale and he's ready for the team's playoff opener.

The Clippers host the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 1 on Saturday night.

Griffin practiced Friday and he says his back is still a little tender, but it's not as bad as it was on Wednesday night at Sacramento. That's when his back locked up while shooting before the game, but he was able to make two big plays at the end of the Clippers' four-point win.

Los Angeles finished the regular season with a 56-26 record that included a seven-game winning streak. Memphis had the same mark, with the teams tying for fourth in the Western Conference.
