The Los Angeles Clippers will host a post season game for the first time since 2005 tonight when they square off with the Memphis Grizzlies at 4:30 p.m. ET Saturday.
The Clippers edged the Grizzlies in game one after a mindblowing 21-point comeback in the fourth quarter, when they outscored the Grizzlies 35-13 to earn the 99-98 victory.
In game two O.J. Mayo went off for 10 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter to put the Clippers away 105-98.
Los Angeles will now attempt to harness the energy of their home crowd to seize the momentum in this series. Both Chris Paul and Blake Griffin talked about the Clippers needing to be more aggressive and more physical as the series shifts to Los Angeles.
The Grizzlies are hoping to build on the momentum they have from last season when they finally won their first playoff series in franchise history before falling in the second round.
Where to watch: The game can be viewed online at http://nbaliveonline.com/streaming/. It will also be broadcast nationally on ESPN at 4:30 PM ET.
Prediction: The Clippers will seize the momentum back from the Grizzlies thanks to an extra effort from Caron Butler as a secondary scorer for the Clippers and an assist from a sold out Staples Center.
Predicted Score: Los Angeles over Memphis 102-95
