After two games in Memphis to open up this Western conference playoff series between the #4 and #5 seeds the teams were tied at 1-1 heading to Staples Center. Game three was very close with the LA Clippers surviving an 87-86 home win on Saturday as a -3 point favorite. Game three marked the second time the Clippers had to survive a last second shot by Rudy Gay as the Memphis scorer failed to deliver each time handing LA their only two wins in this series.

On paper it looked like LA should have had a more comfortable victory as the Clippers shot 47.1% from the floor and Memphis at 40%. But the Achilles heel for LA throughout the season has been their poor free throw shooting. Free throw shooting reared its ugly head once again for the Clippers as they converted on just 13 of 30 from the charity stripe and still survived game three. If LA is just league average at the stripe on Saturday they coast to a double digit win in game three.

Chris Paul continues to show he is worth every penny he makes from his NBA contract as the produced 24 points and dished out 11 assists with 8 of 19 from the floor and poise late in the game. It was another typical LA home game where they get behind by margin in the fourth quarter and in the game’s final four minutes they gear up and finish strongly.
