Expect the Clippers to give a heavy dose of Blake Griffin and Lou Williams again in this matchup. If both players don’t score 20 or more apiece, the Clippers could drop another game to Memphis.
Memphis is going to play hard, especially at home. If Marc Gasol can get into the flow of the offense early, he could be a bigger factor in this one. The Memphis defense won’t be soft against the Clippers.
