Notebook: Clippers 99, Grizzlies 98


Posted Monday April 30, 2012 12:34AM

By Marlon W. Morgan, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: Coaches tell players all the time to just keep playing no matter what the score is. On Sunday night, the Los Angeles Clippers showed why. Trailing by as many at 27, and down 95-71 with 9:13 remaining in Game 1 of their Western Conference playoff series against Memphis, the Clippers held the Grizzlies to just one field goal the rest of the game and pulled off an improbable 99-98 victory before a stunned, sold-out crowd of 18,119 at FedExForum. Nick Young ignited the rally off the bench for the Clippers, knocking down three consecutive 3-pointers during the comeback and finished with a team-high 19 points.

QUOTABLE: "It's crazy. It shows how hard we fought, how we rallied together as a team and made stops at the end. All of it came from the bench tonight, and that's a part of the team. When things aren't going right, we felt we had to get our starters going."
-- Young.

THE STAT: The Clippers trailed by 21 points entering the fourth quarter and still won, with their comeback tying the playoff record for the largest deficit overcome in the shot-clock era. The last time a 21-point deficit was overcome in the fourth quarter of a playoff game was on May 25, 2002, when New Jersey led Boston 74-53. The comeback also set a Clipper record -- regular season or playoff -- for the biggest fourth-quarter comeback in franchise history.

THE STAT II: For three quarters, the Grizzlies were nearly unstoppable offensively, shooting 50 percent from the floor and 66.7 percent from 3-point range. But the fourth quarter was a different story. In that crucial period, the Grizzlies shot 26.3 percent (5-for-19) and scored just 13 points. In the final 9:13, they made just one basket and that was after going nearly nine minutes without one.

TURNING POINT: The Clippers pulled to within 96-84 with 5:08 to play. The Grizzlies then failed to score on five straight possessions. All of the sudden, Young got hot and knocked down three straight 3s to cut the Grizzlies lead to 96-93, giving them the belief they could complete the comeback, which they did.

GOOD MOVE: Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro said he considered pulling point guard Chris Paul around the six-minute mark due to his injured left groin. His decision not to pull him came up big as Paul was the calming influence the Clippers needed to pull off the incredible win. His two free throws with 23.7 seconds left proved to be the winning points.

BAD MOVE: When asked before the game if he would consider putting Tony Allen on Paul late in the game if the score was close, Memphis coach Lionel Hollins said probably not unless Mike Conley was in foul trouble. He said he preferred to have the guy who has been guarding Paul all season defend him. But with the Grizzlies leading, 98-97, Allen came out of a timeout defending Paul. He gambled trying to steal the ball from Paul after he picked up his dribble, but was whistled for a foul, sending Paul to the line for the winning free throws.

HOT: During the regular season, the Grizzlies were one of the NBA's worst 3-point shooting teams. But Sunday night, the hit 8 of their first 10 from long range and finished the game making 11-of-16. Conley led the way going 5-for-5.

NOT: Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph was inserted in the starting lineup, but he was far from the player who dominated the playoffs last season. Randolph scored six points on 3-of-13 shooting and committed three turnovers.

QUOTABLE II: "It's the little things that cost you in games like this and playoff games aren't meant to be blowouts. Sometimes they are, but when you have two evenly matched teams, you can expect that both teams are going to be in the game at the end. The Clippers got back to win the game. We just didn't make enough plays and they did."
-- Hollins.

NOTABLE: Clippers guard Caron Butler suffered a fractured left hand in the third quarter and did not return. After the game, Butler, with his hand bandaged and wrapped, said he was unsure if he would be out for the series. ... Grizzlies' forward Rudy Gay was playing in his first playoff game after missing last year's run to the Western Conference semifinals with a shoulder injury. Gay had a chance to hit one of his patented game-winning shots, but his jumper at the buzzer over Kenyon Martin came up short. Gay finished the game with a team-high 19 points. ... Grizzlies center Marc Gasol was dominant in the first half, scoring 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting. In the second half, however, Gasol was held scoreless, taking only one shot.

UP NEXT: Game 2 will be played Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. ET.
