NBA Playoffs Game 5 Final Score: Grizzlies 103, Clippers 93

It's back to the Grindhouse for an elimination game on Friday night, as the Grizzlies finally managed to steal one at STAPLES Center.

Man, am I glad that's over. Seemed like everybody was in foul trouble tonight, and the officiating was pretty questionable on both ends of the floor, but the Grizzlies took hold of the game in the second quarter and never totally let go (although the Clippers put up a heck of a fight).

Chris Paul ended up with 35 points, and it still wasn't enough to keep the Grizzlies from victory on the backs of the usual Grizzly suspects: Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Mike Conley, new guy Tayshaun Prince, Lord of Chaos Tony Allen.

Here's the box score:

Final - 4.30.2013 1 2 3 4 Total
Memphis Grizzlies 26 28 19 30 103
Los Angeles Clippers 28 20 17 28 93
