Los Angeles – Memphis

I had turned off the computer and ready to go to bed. Then I tuned back to the Clippers and the Grizzlies.

It’s LAC 97, Memphis 96, with under a minute. Grizzlies respond with a mismatch, Rudy Gay on Chris Paul. Gay hits the jumper.

Now Paul is fouled, and hits two free throws, to give the Clippers a 1-point lead.

While we have a second, let’s take a look back at this: The Clippers were trailing by 27 points in the second half, and now they’ve taken the lead. Memphis is playing like garbage.

Are you kidding me? Gay takes a jumper near the top of the key and misses, the Clippers get the rebound and its OVER! 28-3 run to finish the game. The Grizzlies just blew a 27 point lead at home in the first game of the playoffs.

Chris Paul, the Clippers adult supervision, just said a few things to Craig Sager that make us like him.

He said “everyone knows how much I hate to get my lip busted.”

We didn’t know.

“Anytime you win it make everything feel a lot better”

Especially when the opposing team implodes, leaving the home fans in complete shock.

Finally, to Sager: “It’s a nice suit you got on there, Easter passed though”

Too funny. Paul’s hilarious.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
