L.A. Clippers vs. Memphis Grizzlies: Live Score, Results and Game Highlights
The Memphis Grizzlies beat the L.A. Clippers 94-82 behind 27 points and 11 rebounds from Zach Randolph.
The Clippers weren't in this one throughout the second half, thanks to sloppy ball movement, leading to 16 turnovers, and terrible shot selection that led to a 38.8 percent field goal percentage on the night.
Chris Paul had an absolutely atrocious game, with just eight points on 4-of-11 shooting from the field. He also committed five turnovers.
In addition to Randolph's stellar performance, Marc Gasol added 16 of his own and most impressively, Quincy Pondexter had the game of his playoff life, with 13 points and two offensive rebounds.
The difference maker in this one was gritty defense from the Grizzlies that honestly just overpowered and intimidated the Clippers.
If Paul is the competitor that he appears to be though, he'll come back for some vengeance when the Grizzlies and Clippers face off in a pivotal Game 4 in Memphis on Saturday night.

They should just have Blake & Z-Bo start the game with 1 foul each and skip the inevitable whistle.— J.A. Adande (@jadande) April 26, 2013
I'm pressing the fictional "like" button right now ...
Love most of the Clippers, but so meh on Blake Griffin.

On one hand you applaud Blake Griffin for playing aggressively throughout the entirety of the game. On the other hand, you're down 14, so cut it out man.

A 16-point lead? Yep, that's what Z'Bo ordered. He's got a double double with 27 points and 11 rebounds.

Chris Paul hasn't been himself tonight. This looks like when the Monstars stole the skills from the NBA stars in Space Jam.

If Chris Paul really wants to be a legend, he'll lead the Clippers back for the win here.
Chris Paul's stat line just got a lot worse—8 points. 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 turnovers, 1 AIR BALL.

This is why CP3 isn't in "legendary" status yet.
Hey Quincy Pondexter, you're name is cool, but now isn't the time to be jacking up three balls like you are Ray Allen. Let the shot clock play out.

The Clippers have been lazy with the ball all night long, just recorded their 16th turnover of the night,
On the other side of the ball, the Clippers have committed just 9 turnovers.

I don't have much faith that the Clippers can score 12 points in the next five minutes. Their offense (38.7 FG%) has been atrocious.
New rule: if the fouled player likes it, it shouldn't be called a flagrant 1.— J.A. Adande (@jadande) April 26, 2013
ZBo just gave Matt Barnes an affectionate headbutt, if such a thing is possible.— J.A. Adande (@jadande) April 26, 2013
Flagrant foul called on Matt Barnes ... Interesting call there, but hey that's why they're able to look at the monitors. That could certainly prove to be a big difference maker here.

Raise your hand if you forgot that Jerryd Bayless could get up for a massive alley-oop. Yep, I see those thousands of hands raised.
Grizzlies 78, Clippers 71—6:30 remaining in the 4th quarter
Bad news for the Grizzlies, unless they foul Blake Griffin.
Clippers in bonus with 8:39 left in fourth

Mike Conley just jacked up a 29-foot three ball. Those aren't the kind of shots the Grizzlies need to be taking, especially with Zach Randolph having a solid game, with 24 points.
Grizzlies 74, Clippers 67—8:41 remaining in the 4th quarter
Eric Bledsoe gets so frustrated when Matt Barnes intentionally fouls on a fastbreak. Bledsoe wanted the block. Second time I've seen that.— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) April 26, 2013
Just like that it's back to a 10-point lead, thanks to the Clippers' inconsistent "B Team" being out on the floor.
