With the NBA playoffs approaching we take a look at the standings and find the LA Clippers sitting tied with the Portland Trailblazers for the fourth seed in the Western conference and just ½ game behind the Houston Rockets for the third seed. Memphis has been hit with injuries for much of this season and if the season ended tonight the club would sit out of the playoffs. Memphis occupies the ninth seed in the competitive Western conference sitting a game behind the Dallas Mavericks for the final seed. The Clippers and Grizzlies have a lot of history with one another. The teams have met in a playoff series in each of the past two seasons with each team winning one of the series each. The Clippers have gotten Chris Paul back in the lineup and the Grizzlies guard Mike Conley is back. This is an interesting game as we find teams with two conflicting styles. Memphis still emphasizes defense as they play slow with big men Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol fighting for position down low for good looks at the basket in close range. The Clippers want to run because head coach Doc Rivers feels it would allow the team to make the most of the talents of Blake Griffin on the court. We will see how that style fits with Chris Paul because he likes a more deliberate pace on the court and is not a big fan of playing fast.
