Paul had a great game with 24 points, nine assists and four rebounds. Blake Griffin had 21 points, eight rebounds and four assists. Jamal Crawford came off the bench and scored 15 points for the Clippers. Both of the teams shot well from the field, but both of the teams shot poorly from the three-point line only scoring a combined four three pointers for the game.

 

Mike Conley scored 28 points along with nine assists for the Grizzlies. Tony Allen had 16 points for the game and Marc Gasol contributed with 17 points. The reason for their consecutive losses has to do with the poor play of power forward Zack Randolph who only had 13 points.

 

The Clippers who have home court advantage in this series of best of seven games already took the first two. The next game between the Grizzlies and the Clippers will be played on Thursday in Memphis.
