Game-by-Game Predictions for LA Clippers' Series with Memphis Grizzlies

For the second year in a row, the Los Angeles Clippers are preparing for what should be a difficult slugfest against the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round of the NBA playoffs. 

After winning a gritty seven-game series in Memphis last season, the Clippers have the good fortune of starting this series at home.

These teams have been close all season, as indicated by their identical 56-26 records.

"Lob City" has won nine of its last 14 matchups with the Grizzlies dating back to last season. Although Memphis was able to steal one game in Los Angeles this season, the Grizzlies have only won just two of their last six games against the Clippers at home. 

However, that record does not indicate how close this back-and-forth has been. In those 14 games, five have been decided by five points or less, with most of the games not decided until the final few minutes. 

Luckily for Los Angeles, the Clippers will be able to rely on the brilliance of Chris Paul down the stretch. 

Winners of their last seven contests, the Clippers are clicking at the right time. Even though Memphis will present a formidable matchup, this series could be over quicker then expected.
