Game 5: Knockout Blow!

  • Grizzlies deliver knockout blow - steal game 5 on the Clippers home court. Chance to close the series at home on Friday night. You know the Grindhouse will be infuego!

    "This is becoming the Harlem Globetrotters versus the Washington Generals" – TNT announcer, NBA Hall of Famer, Reggie Miller during the 3rd quarter.

    The Memphis Grizzlies do not stop!

    That could be the end of the Vinny Del Negro era and these Clippers as we know them.

    The Clippers could be broken for good.

    The clippers 10 game win streak that had amassed from the end of regular season to the 2 home wins to open this series has reversed itself into what is now a 3 game losing streak. Can they possibly be grounded for good in a fourth straight defeat on Friday night? We shall see! The only people giving LA a chance now are probably themselves and possibly not even their coaches. They will be a dangerous opponent with their backs against the wall, but it feels like they already hit the panic button last night in desperation as they foresaw the inevitable coming up over the horizon. This could very well be Memphis' time to shine.

    Magic Johnson was lamenting how the NBA is a "loser" this year for not having Kobe, Rose, Rondo, and Westbrook. The best aren't here to showcase at the end of the season. It hurts the NBA because now teams like guess who? Memphis, Indiana, Brooklyn, and such "3rd rate" franchises will get a shot at playing on towards June. Now you can add Blake Griffin to that list I think along with David Lee and Amare Stoudamire (remember him?). America has always been about the underdog though, Magic. Remember the #BostonStrong rally started somewhere around Bunker Hill in 1775.

    This isn't something new! This is old, and gritty! This is Grizzlies basketball!!!

    Go Grizz!
