Memphis Grizzlies vs. L.A. Clippers: Postgame Grades and Analysis
Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Chris Paul wasn't about to let the Memphis Grizzlies walk into his arena and steal one on the road.

Instead of letting the Grizzlies do that, he dropped a game-winning floater over the Grizzlies defense with 0.1 seconds left on the clock, leading the L.A. Clippers to a 93-91 win over a Grizzlies team that wouldn't go away.

Paul led the Clippers with 24 points, nine assists and four rebounds, and he also scored the final eight points for the Clippers down the stretch. 

Mike Conley did all he could to help the Grizzlies steal one from Lob City, with 28 points nine assists and two steals, but it just wasn't enough.

Tony Allen was in rare form as well, with a double-double of 16 points and 10 rebounds on the night. Unfortunately he couldn't step up and lock down Paul when the Grizzlies needed it the most.

It wasn't a pretty win for the Clippers, but in the playoffs all that matters is being the first to win four games in each series, and the Clippers are well on their way to doing just that.
