L.A. Clippers vs. Memphis Grizzlies: Postgame Grades and Analysis
John David Mercer-USA TODAY Spor

Well it's official. The Memphis Grizzlies are moving on to face the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the Los Angeles Clippers will be watching that series at home. 

The Grizzlies absolutely dominated the Clippers, 118-105, and they did so with efficient offense and aggressive defense. 

Mike Conley and Zach Randolph led the Grizzlies with 23 points apiece on a combined 12-of-19 shooting from the field. 

In the first half, as the Grizzlies were building their lead, Tony Allen ran the show with 16 points and intense defense on every possession.

Chris Paul did what he could with 28 points, eight assists and two technical fouls. While CP3 got ejected, he still gave his all out on the floor, but he just couldn't carry the Clippers himself. 

Even with Matt Barnes' 30 points off the bench, the Clippers fell short because they couldn't stop the Grizzlies on offense.

Next up for the Grizzlies is a second-round series with Kevin Durant and Co. And next up for the Clippers is an offseason full of tough questions and even harder decisions.
