The Los Angeles Clippers face the Memphis Grizzlies in a decisive Game 7 on Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. EST. You can watch a live stream online of the game available here.
The Grizzlies were down 3-1 in the series, but now have a chance to advance to a rematch against the San Antonio Spurs if they can win at home on Sunday. The Grizzlies are 28-8 at the Fedex Forum this year, including 2-1 in the playoffs.
We'd much rather be playing Game 7 here than in L.A. and having a chance to close out a series here at home, Grizzlies guard Mike Conley said. It's definitely going to be a loud environment, and we're expecting a lot of people to come. ... We just got to be emotionally stable and ready to go.
Memphis has looked like the clearly superior team in the last two games, as the Clippers have been hobbled by injuries to their stars. Chris Paul and Blake Griffin are both battling injuries and haven't looked like the high-flying Lob City that dominated teams earlier in the year.
The odds are stacked against the Clippers going into Game 7, but the team remains confident in its ability to advance.
This is why you play for those Game 7s, everyone to see what we're made of, Paul said. We got to come out and be as aggressive as possible.
Clippers guard Randy Foye agreed with Paul, saying, The biggest thing for us is we have to play our game, we have to go down there and outrebound them and make it a dog fight.
The Clippers will need Paul and Griffin to be dominant on Sunday if they hope to advance, but that's a major question mark right now. Paul was a shell of himself in Game 6 and was unable to take over at the end of the game as he has become accustomed to doing.
The Grizzlies will look to own the paint again with their dominating inside presence of Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. The pair combined for 41 points and 25 rebounds in Game 6 and will look to replicate that against a banged-up Clippers frontline.
