I just have a hard time seeing Chris Paul letting them lose in the first round.

Going to be a GREAT series though. Looking forward to it.

I know we're in the minority here man, but I agree. Clippers played Memphis well in the regular season as well eventhough just about every game Memphis would be missing at least one important piece, but like I said before, if the Clippers can just keep at least one game on the road close until the end and they've got that dude CP3 on their side, they've definitely got a legit shot to steal at least one (on the road).

Wow, the Clippers are retarded. This was their very last game of the regular season, a win would have ensured them HCA in the 1st round. Instead they opt to give CP3 the night off and let Memphis have a shot at locking down HCA with a win tomorrow. So smart.

:facepalm:


It was genius!

But really, winning without HCA can be done, but they just made it a little bit harder. <_<

Its going to be hard for Clippers to win but not impossible but if i had to bet money i would say Memphis they are the more balanced team.

I don't think Chris Paul will be the main reason the Clippers will win or lose against Memphis. Chris Paul will do his thing; it's up to his teammates to step up. Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan better be prepare to face Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol and Speights.


I know his team will have to step up, but they have during the final stretch of the season. Ignoring their last 2 games they were like 9 of 11 or something like that before it.

Memphis bigs are better than Clippers bigs but don't forget Mo Williams can score, Foye can score and Nick Young can get hot. Those 3 guys have an incredible point guard who can either score or feed them great looks.

Definitely. They beat Memphis 2 to 1 during the regular season I believe.

Again, I feel that CP3 can carry a team. He took the Hornetts to the playoffs last year almost single handily......

I think the Clippers would win in Game 7, they have no answer for the CP3&Griffin combo.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

So if the Grizzlies win their last game, they have home court advantage right?

It's easy to overlook the play of CP3 in the fourth quarter...

In my opinion he's one of the best finishers in the game and if the Clippers start playing defense, the Clippers juggernaut well be hard to stop...

Money is on the Grizz beating Orlando (they should, if they just play their game), so I'll go ahead and give Memphis the #4 in the topic title. :laughing:

If the refs give Chris Paul the benefit of the doubt on his flops, don't be surprised if Allen ends up in foul trouble.

With the Grizzlies having home court advantage, it will be tough for the Clippers to win the series.

Anyways, I pick Grizzlies in six games. But, I wouldn't be surprised if the Clippers win six games either.
