Clippers trying to advance to second round

May 9th, 2012


Losing the series opener after blowing a 27-point lead at home was an ominous sign for the Memphis Grizzlies, who will look to stave off elimination when they host the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night in Game 5 of their Western Conference first-round series. The Grizzlies have not found a way to solve the Clippers down the stretch, with their three losses coming by a total of six points. Memphis had won 11 consecutive home games before collapsing in Game 1.

If the Clippers lose to the Grizzlies tonight, they will play again on May 11 at the LA Staples Center.
