Clippers vs Grizzlies in a Playoff Series: Who Wins
 
Assuming of course both teams stay somewhat healthy

Is this a joke? Grizzlies have looked like the best team in the league since the opener which are usually a bad way to measure teams since its their first game. Clippers have already lost at home to Warriors and the freaking Cavaliers

Clippers bench overrated as f*ck all Crawford and Bledsoe Iso's and teams are not doubling Jamal enough. TA will put the clamps on him come P/O time. Every other matchup is a wash, with the Grizz being slightly better in every position except for PG.

I'd take the Clippers slightly because i think Paul could help them get points easier when the series bogged down (and it would.)

The playoffs are long time away, but this is the potential matchup im looking forward to the most. The west is really wide open this season.

And BEAT the Grizzles along with blowing out the Spurs, beating Lakers, Heat

Those wins are damn impressive.

The team that won the game last week, has won 6 of 7 regular season matchups ... And in the playoffs as the road team with a decimated roster won.

grizzlies had their chance last season against injury riddled and no depth clippers team... this year they are getting swept or winning only one game at most

I got the Clippers in 6, even if they were the road team. Chris Paul is the biggest matchup issue for either team by a long shot in the series and Blake's free throw and midrange shooting look much stronger. Meaning Memphis won't be able to get by on bully ball in the paint.

The main thing to note here is that the Clippers were up 3-1 in the series before CP3 got injured late in game 4. No way, no how the Clippers lose game 6 at home with a healthy CP3.

You do realize the grizzlies are deeper now and the grizzlies didnt have darrell arthur their best pick n roll defender, and the second best player in the playoffs the year before Z-bo was playing on 1 leg off surgery he said it was hard to get up and down the court.

Of course he said that, it's called an excuse. None of our players made those excuses but if you actually watched the games you'd see CP3 immediately lost all abilities to cut or get by people when he got that bad groin pull (same one he pulled twice during regular season). Zach didn't look physically limited until Reggie Evans came into the games and roughed his ass up and made him look weak as fu**.

Clippers in 5, no more than 6.

An excuse? He had surgery and missed most of the season Chris Paul didn't have surgery, a groin injury vs surgery. Another reason Cp3 was ineffective is because they weren't calling flopping or little baby fouls like in the regular season.

Grizzlies have a good chance now. Clippers don't have their best weapon in the PO's - flopping

That was clear in the Conference semis..Paul was terrible vs the Spurs and it was clearly due to injury.
