Both of these teams are heading to the playoffs and looking to do so with as much momentum as possible.
There is a great chance they will be facing each other in the first round though so they might not want to reveal too much.
The home team has won each game in the season series this season.
The Grizzlies have to be the toughest team in the league. They are severely outmanned yet they continue to soldier on. Most recently they lost by a point to Golden State and they have a date on the road with the Warriors after this one.
In their recent game they actually started Vince Carter. It was a nice dose of nostalgia for me but he is not capable of playing starter minutes any more. The guys they bring in off the bench probably shouldn’t even be in the NBA.
That puts a ton of pressure on ZeBo, while meaning you are relying a lot on the likes of Matt Barnes and Lance Stephenson. It is a little bit of live by the sword, die by the sword.
The Grizzlies do not have much of a choice, they can only hope the return of Mike Conley for the playoffs will make enough of a difference.
Take a pass here, there is nothing to say the Clippers won’t win by 20.
Los Angeles Clippers
While the Grizzlies are walking wounded the Clippers are getting used to be completely healthy with Blake Griffin back in the lineup.
Griffin had a double-double in his last game but they are easing him back into things so there is a chance he does not even play on Tuesday night. Even without him the Clippers should have little trouble with Memphis.
That is because of the trio of Chris Paul, DeAndre Jordan and J.J. Reddick. They and a very nice bench have kept the team from missing a beat while Griffin was out.
Jamal Crawford and Jeff Green are about a good a sixth and seventh man there is in the league, especially if you are looking for scoring from the second unit. Defense will determine how far this group goes in the playoffs though.
L.A. should have little trouble posting a win in their final home game.

A month ago getting behind the Clippers would have definitely been the play and it probably is again but I wouldn’t suggest getting down on it.
