The Memphis Grizzlies' season came to a sudden end on Sunday as the Grizzlies ran out of steam in their Game 7 loss, falling to the Los Angeles Clippers, 82-72. Rudy Gay and the Grizzlies looked terrific as they rallied from a 3-1 deficit, but the Clippers looked in Game 7 like they stole the grit and grind that had characterized the Grizzlies.
