Memphis Grizzlies vs. Los Angeles Clippers Game 1: Video Highlights and Recap

Dan Talintyre@@dantalintyreSenior Analyst IIApril 21, 2013

After playing out a thrilling seven-game series in the first round of the playoffs last year, the Memphis Grizzlies and the Los Angeles Clippers again drew each other in the first round of the postseason.

The two teams finished the season with identical records, but L.A. won three of their four games during the year to take home-court advantage—and the Clippers were looking to make it four wins out of five when they took the court at the Staples Center on Saturday.

The Clippers had lost just nine games at home all year and had won their last seven heading into this one, but the Grizzlies too were in good form—winning eight of their last 10—and were primed to do battle in another close game against L.A.

Who emerged victorious from the Staples Center?

Let's take a look at how Game 1 in this series unfolded on Saturday night.
