After splitting a pair in Memphis to open up this playoff the Clippers returned home to Staples Center and won two very close games. LA survived a buzzer beating shot in game three and needed overtime to defeat Memphis in game four by the score of 101-97 as a -2 point home favorite. After playing poorly on the defensive end for much of the month of April the Clips put on two good performances by allowing the Grizzlies 40% from the floor in game three and 43.4% in game four.

Game six if necessary will be played at Staples Center and the Clippers are 4-0 straight up this season at home against Memphis. This poses some thought in game five as the Grizzlies are playing for their playoff lives tonight. Memphis will bring a strong fight tonight on their home court so will the Clippers meet their energy? You have to wonder with a young Clippers team is if they have the killer instinct to go into a hostile environment and stay competitive in this game. After stealing game one in Memphis the Clippers responded in game two by dropping a 105-98 road decision as a +7 point underdog. Another concern for Clippers backers is the fact LA has not taken care of the basketball. The Clips had 17 turnovers in game one and an awful 20 turnovers in game two which were all held in Memphis. Caron Butler who broke his non shooting hand in game two suited up for the Clippers in the two games played at Staples Center. Butler scored 14 points in the LA win on Monday night.
