NBA Playoffs: Matching Up Every Position in Grizzlies vs. Clippers

A lot have pegged the opening round series of the Grizzlies and Clippers as the most interesting one to watch. After all, it does have the makings of one. 

Young, energetic team versus hardened, experienced team. Both having fairly new playoff success and appearances. Both underrated the entire season. There is no reason to not tune into this one. 

Each team has valuable talent that will need to show up in the series if either want to have success. For the Grizzlies, guys like Rudy Gay and Marc Gasol headline the tough, defensive style, while Clippers like Blake Griffin and Chris Paul bring the offensive fireworks.

Basketball is a team game, though, so every position and player will need to have an impact. For this article, I will be examining every position and the players in them. One team will have an advantage. Let's see which team that is.

*Note: In order to make this slideshow, I will only focus on two players at each position. If both teams only have one guy, then it will be a one-on-one comparison.
