Vs. NBA playoffs: Los Angeles Clippers vs. Memphis Grizzlies preview By BETH HARRIS Posted Apr 21 2013 8:03PM LOS ANGELES (AP) Blake Griffin is willing to sacrifice his team-leading offense if it means containing Zach Randolph in the playoffs. Griffin had 10 points and five rebounds in the Los Angeles Clippers' 112-91 victory in Game 1, less than his regular-season averages of 18.0 points and 8.3 rebounds. That's because he was busy wrestling with the Memphis Grizzlies power forward, who like Griffin, played in foul trouble most of the game. Griffin fouled out late, while Randolph finished with five fouls. He had 13 points....

Hell yeah imma be there, section 116 baby!!!

We can bet that the grizz will BRING it when it comes to effort and especially rebounding. We need to come out with as much energy and focus as last game.

ye for some reason when games are played at staples center, they sound extremely quiet on TV. Last season was EXTREMELY LOUD, and it'll be the same this season.

I'll take a video of the crowd tonight, if I remember haha

An interesting dynamic we have this year is in our SF play. It's easy to forget last year Caron was playing with a broken hand. This year he's playing better without a doubt. But Matt Barnes is a legitimate SF who can defend and rebound as well as slash to the basket and hit the occasional jumper. Heck, we even have Grant Hill who can do much of the same things.

Last year we had bunch of 4 and 5's alternating with Kenyon Martin and Reggie Evans. Some people say we will miss those guys, but I think having 3 true small forwards gives us much more flexibility on offense and defense. They could be the key to this series.

Did anyone notice or comment on, the second unit rotation that was killing the Griz. I hope that this something they use LO,DJ,Barnes, Bled, they demolished the Griz on the boards and D. It looks like Vinny/Clippers have been holding back some strategies. I absolutely love the CP3/Bled back court, they can completely take away any teams back court.

I didn't see a single second of the game on Saturday at all, I was really sick and I was zoned out. By the time I remembered the game was on, we were winning handily in the 1st half, so I checked the game on my phone to not "jinx" the team.

Do I not watch it tonight? I will be at work still for the first 15-45 minutes of the game depending on when I get out, and I'd like to watch but I'm a little superstitious.

Do I not watch a single game until they lose?

It was the loudest of the year that I had gone to (I went to about 30 this year). HAS to be the way Staples is miked,,Staples has weird acoustics anyway. If you have ever been there for a concert you'd agree.

Our Tribe called Bench is defiantly better then their reserves,,so good they got to play against the first string too. I think their bigs got so tired playing MMA instead of NBA that by the fourth, our 3 guard attack drained them all the way. Our guys are much quicker at the end, the Jizz seemed to just run out of steam.

The only problem I see is, they will make adjustments and we will have trouble with their adjustments because we probably won't make any unless it is a way to get Blake not having to punch his way past Zach every effing time. I really hate Randolph.

Odom looks determined out there! He's like a completely different player. When he was open for an outside shot, there was no hesitation and he took it. Plus it seems like he doesnt have that lazy eyes when he's in the game. He has his eyes of a tiger!

Can't wait for the game to start. We need to come out energized from the opening tip like Game 1. Memphis is not going to play as bad as they did on Saturday night, so were going to have to fight to get this one.

callahan:

home team win %: 57

fouls per game: 39.9

road team foul %: 52 (among refs with 50+ games, he's 7th)

home team foul %: 47.9 (among refs with 50+ games, he ranks low)

if this holds true, memphis fans might be calling for his head in a couple hours.

I prefer Dan Crawford over Joey Crawford. Joey wants all cameras on him.

It's a MUST that we blow them out convincingly again. Why? Because... it will obliterate their morale. The players, coaches and team writers are all acting like not just the blowout was a fluke but our WIN. I mean you have even general analysts claiming the Grizzlies will get payback tonight. We HAVE to come out with the same fire and effort. Attack them early. Blake needs a big game today to keep them off balance because we know they are going to focus their D more on the perimeter this time. I predict a lot of Tony Allen on CP3. Instead of CP3 shying away from that.. attack Allen hard and make him get into foul trouble early.

If I have to hear them one more time I'll break my TV. Knowing my luck we'll lose tonight and have to hear all that talk about how overrated we are, with them completely avoiding the topic of our 21 point game 1 victory.

Bullterrier definitely boo Zbo for us like Hawaii said. Our crowd is honestly embarrassingly bad compared to most other teams. The ONLY time we get as loud as the top arenas is when we have monster dunks which isn't right. Just shows the Clippers fans filling the stands care too much about the highlight. We need WAY more noise against the visiting teams. Even CP3 and Griffin have hinting multiple times about needing more from the crowd/fans.

100% agree. At least we are louder then laker fans and maybe heat fans. But that's not saying much.

Hate this foul bullshit! You're down 10 with 40 seconds man.. you're NOT going to comeback unless you pull off THE single greatest playoff comeback in NBA history, surpassing Bird's. Fu** man! Now timeouts, foul, timeouts, foul... 15 more minutes most likely.

The Clippers need to take a cue from this Bulls/Nets game...NOTHING is given. The other time is going to be desperate and want it really badly. They cannot, CANNOT give up home court by not showing up.
