Uh oh! The Clippers are down 3-2 in the series heading back to Memphis, and worse, Blake Griffin injured his ankle! This is all bad, yes, but there’s no need to panic. That reason would be because the Clippers have one of the best point guards in the game today, maybe of all time. This guy just happens to know what to do in these types of circumstances.
Last year, the Clippers came back from a large deficit to beat the Grizzlies in overtime. That furious charge was lead by Chris Paul, who seemed to know what he was doing the whole game. It wasn’t obvious, but Paul is a genius when it comes to shot-making and taking. He’s a scorer when he wants to be, and can assist his teammates.
With that being said, the Clippers don’t have a very high panic meter. The only thing, however, that they need to think about is their offensive game. Memphis is a great team, defensively, but they still struggle with being able to produce properly on offense. If the Clippers can have any type of offensive night, they can take Memphis’ crowd out of the game, win it and go home for an anticipated game 7.
