The Clippers went out to the 3-1 series lead against Memphis then dropped two straight as we head to game seven on Sunday. After starting the series shooting outstanding from the field the LA Clippers in game five made 37.1% and in game six 43% from the floor. The LA Clippers enter play with major injury concerns to impact players. Chris Paul had been playing through a bad groin issue and now has a hip injury to deal with. In game six Paul had a playoff low 11 points. Blake Griffin has soreness in his left knee that is limiting his mobility on the court. We saw this impact the Clippers on the rebounding battle as the Grizzlies pulled down 16 more rebounds on Friday than LA as they extended the series to Sunday’s series finale. Guard Randy Foye will play game seven with a hamstring injury.

The Memphis Grizzlies have greatly restructured their offensive strategy once the club got behind 3-1 in this series. They were too reliant on outside shooting and began to feed their big men in Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. The Grizzlies center Gasol has scored 23 points in game’s five and six and averaged eight rebounds during the Grizzlies turnaround in this series. Randolph had 19 points and 10 boards in game five and 18 point and 16 rebounds in game six. The question for Memphis on Sunday as this game is a quick turnaround is can Randolph continue his play at this high level despite not being in proper condition as he missed many games this season to injury. We have seen Gasol not have the proper fitness levels in games this season so one has to keep an eye on both of the Memphis big men in game seven with such short rest between games.
