Once again we were reminded that a game is not decided by what happens in the final seconds.
“It was one of those games that you know it was going to be this way,” said Coach Hollins, “We felt like we could turn it on at anytime and we had spurts where we did, but to have that consistent effort and commitment to what we do for 48 minutes we didn’t have.”
The Grizz led by 13 in the 3rd quarter only to see it erased by the Clippers behind Mo Williams 9 pts in the closing period.
A double foul was called with 5.7 seconds left following a lengthy review by the officials causing the game to essentially end with a jump ball.
Memphis dodged a bullet and still hold the 8th spot in the West with Houston unable to capitalize vs SAC at home.
Magic number is 2.
First to 100 is a new feature for MemphiSport.net that will appear after every Grizzlies home game. 100 or so words of the best stuff from that night’s action.
