5 For The Win?

In a series where the bad boy Memphis Grizzlies were picked to bully around the short handed flashy Clippers, the tag has changed for the Clippers. Memphis possesses the bigger bodies, and better role players. Los Angelos, well they are just alley-oops, some Randy Foye, a hurt Caron, and Chris Paul. Well it seems as if Chris Paul is the deciding factor, because he is playing like a man possessed. The smallest guy on the court has showed us that he is the strongest willed for 3 of the first 4 games of the series. Floor general is beginning  to seem like an understatement, as Paul continually delivers huge performances. Most notable, in game 4. CP3 Delivered 27 points(8 in overtime), 9 rebounds, and 7 assists. But it hasn’t been all Paul for the Clippers. Caron Butler is displaying incredible toughness and is playing through a broken hand. Blake Griffin is matching Zach Randolph’s physicality. Nick Young is emerging as a great scoring option. The result, a 3-0 lead and a chance to end the series in Memphis. If there is one game to watch this playoff season, it’s got to be this one. Memphis is gritty and this game is at home against their passionate fans. The intensity will be at a level that none of these players have yet experienced yet, luckily for them, the pressure is off them, and with Chris Paul at the helm, anything is possible for The Clippers.
