Memphis held serve at home with the 92-80 home win against the Clippers as a -6 ½ point home favorite. In game five we saw two critical injuries for Clippers players. Blake Griffin injured his left knee and he hyperextended it in the Wednesday loss. Word out of Lob City has Griffin is a likely starter in game six tonight. Point guard Chris Paul aggravated his right groin injury that has hampered him since late in the regular season. He has been playing through this ailment during this series and those who watch press conferences after games has seen Paul grimace as he got up from his chair. Paul is listed as a game time decision and with no back to backs in the playoffs expects to see CP3 on the court tonight.

We saw a change of strategy from the Grizzlies in game five as the team force fed their big men in Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph as they combined for 42 points and 17 rebounds with 4 of 25 shooting. Problem with this strategy is the fact Gasol and Randolph run out of gas and do not have the same fitness level they had a season ago during their playoff run. Something evident that is unreported is, because of the compressed scheduling, player conditioning and cardio appears to have been neglected by many head coaches because we see too many tired players on the court in fourth quarters.
