Default Clippers go up 2-0 on Grizzlies in first round

The first game was a blowout and the second was a buzzer-beater, but both were wins for the Clippers and that means they hold a 2-0 advantage over the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round of the Western Conference NBA playoffs.

Itís a good omen for the Clippers, who have been up, 2-0, in a playoff series only one other time in franchise history. That time, in 2006, they went on to defeat the Denver nuggets, four games to one. It also holds an historical advantage as only 15 times in NBA playoff history has a team lost a series after winning the first two.

Those things mean little to the Clippers, however. Nobody in their locker room was satisfied after Chris Paulís buzzer-beating bank shot gave the Clippers a 93-91 victory in Game 2 at Staples Center.
