Here we are, Game 82. With the 7th seed on the line, the Grizzlies are going to take it easy tonight against the Clippers. Why? Well, because they'd like to avoid a trip back to the Staples Center anytime in the near future. With a loss tonight the Grizzlies will be the 8th seed, taking on the Spurs in the first round of the playoffs. With a win and a Hornets loss, they lock down the 7th seed with an opponent yet to be determined. Knowing all that, let's not read too much into a loss tonight.
The talk begins after the jump!
