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.
