Notebook: Grizzlies 90, Clippers 88


Posted Saturday May 12, 2012 1:27AM

By Dan Arritt, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: Facing elimination on the road, the Grizzlies gathered themselves in the nick of time Friday night, storming back from an eight-point fourth-quarter deficit to win, 90-88, in Game 6 of their Western Conference first-round series against the Clippers at Staples Center, forcing a deciding game Sunday in Memphis.

QUOTABLE: "All this means nothing because this is a one-game series, and everyone has a chance to win."
-- Memphis coach Lionel Hollins

THE STAT: A sprained left knee late in Game 5 left Clippers forward Blake Griffin without his usual bounce and his team vulnerable on the glass. They were subsequently out-rebounded, 66-40, the most rebounds the Grizzlies corralled all season. The biggest board of the game belonged to Memphis forward Zach Randolph, who tipped in a missed layup by teammate Tony Allen with 3:24 remaining, giving the Grizzlies an 85-80 lead.

TURNING POINT: The Clippers began a 10-0 run early in the fourth quarter that lifted them to a 76-68 lead with 8:30 remaining. The Grizzlies answered with a 10-0 run of their own, however, putting the crowd back in their seats. With just under five minutes remaining and the score tied, Chris Paul committed back-to-back turnovers sandwiched around a 3-point basket by Memphis point guard Mike Conley. After a missed 3-pointer on the other end by Clippers guard Randy Foye, Randolph came up with his huge tip-in and the Clippers never got the ball back with a one-possession deficit.

HOT: After a lackluster start to the series, Memphis center Marc Gasol produced his second consecutive standout game. He finished with 23 points and nine rebounds, all in the first three quarters. Randolph carried Memphis down the stretch, scoring seven of his 18 points in the fourth quarter and grabbing seven of his 16 rebounds. The Lakers are probably hoping Gasol's performance inspired his brother, Pau, who is coming off his worst playoff performance of this postseason in Game 6 against the Nuggets on Thursday night, setting up Game 7 back at Staples Center on Saturday night.

NOT: Paul suffered a strained right hip flexor late in Game 5 and didn't have the usual jump in his stride. He finished with 11 points and seven assists before fouling out in the game's final minute. An 85 percent free-throw shooter in his career, he even missed two of four from the line. The Clippers didn't get much help from their other veteran guards, as Foye, Mo Williams and Nick Young combined to shoot 6-for-24, including 1-for-8 from 3-point range.

GOOD MOVE: Gasol was the only Memphis player to stay on the floor the entire third quarter, and he played the first 2 1/2 minutes of the fourth before needing a breather, just as L.A. was beginning its 10-0 run. Hollins decided to go with seldom-used back-up center Hamed Haddadi, who had played just 12 minutes in the series. Haddadi grabbed one of the biggest rebounds of the game after Allen missed the second of two free throws with 7:22 remaining. Haddadi laid the ball back in with his left hand to cut the Clippers' lead to 76-73. Gasol replaced Haddadi less than a minute later and Memphis continued on its 10-0 run to secure the lead for good.

BAD MOVE: The Clippers managed to build their eight-point fourth-quarter lead while Paul sat on the bench. He had checked out of the game with 2:34 remaining in the third quarter, and should have been rested when the Grizzlies began clawing back from the eight-point deficit. But coach Vinny Del Negro waited until the lead had been whittled to one before sending Paul back on the floor. By then, he seemed to have lost whatever rhythm he had developed in the third quarter, scoring just one point down the stretch, with no assists and two costly turnovers. Del Negro also opted to keep starting center DeAndre Jordan on the bench in the fourth quarter, even though he had been one of L.A.'s better players in the first and third quarters.

QUOTABLE II: "It's tough, but nobody is 100 percent at this time of the season. I tried to suck it up, and so did Blake. We still had an opportunity to win. This is not a one-man team."
-- Paul

NOTABLE: The Grizzlies won an elimination game on the road for the first time in franchise history. In the history of first-round Game 7s, the home team is 9-2. The Clippers bench outscored Memphis for the first time in the series, 34-15.

UP NEXT: Game 7 on Sunday in Memphis, 1 p.m. ET.
