It's finally over.. Our nightmare series with the Clippers is over, and the Grizzlies have won out. It's safe to put your Pepto Bismol away now. This was very much the Joey Crawford show, who has a history of tossing players. There were 8 technical fouls called, and both Chris Paul and Zach Randolph were thrown out. Not to mention the Grizzlies shot 47 free throws to go along with the Clippers 24.
Anyway, that doesn't matter. All that matters is the Grizzlies are moving on to the second round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs to face the Oklahoma City Thunder. It won't be easy by any means, but without Westbrook the Grizzlies have a strong shot to make it to the Western Conference Finals.. and further.
Call this series the Zach Randolph show! He's back baby!! Without him, the Grizzlies don't advance. The Grizzlies got huge contributions from their bench, specifically from Bayless and Pondexter.
I don't really know what else to say about it. I'm overflowing with pure elation right now. It's time to celebrate!
