Blake Griffin to Sit Out 4th Quarter of Game 5

This doesn’t bode well for the Los Angeles Clippers. Down 73-65 entering the fourth quarter against what looks like a fired up Memphis Grizzlies team, it’ll now be on Chris Paul to carry the bulk of the load. Before sitting down Blake had 4 points on 2-7 shooting and 5 rebounds/assists, but he was a huge liability on the defensive end of the floor due to the sprain.

While this has huge implications on this particular game, this could be the swaying factor in the entire LAC-MEM series.
