Grizzlies vs. Blazers, 2015 NBA playoffs: Time, TV schedule, radio, and live stream for Game 4

Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

The Memphis Grizzlies will have their first shot at a playoffs sweep in franchise history, at least the version of a sweep where you're the one holding the broom. The Portland Trail Blazers stand in as the debris to be swept, but, as I pointed out for Game 3, this isn't likely to be accomplished casually. There won't be an Oreck or a Dyson or even a Dirt Devil around for the Grizzlies. They're going to have to head to the storage closet, pull out the straw-bundled head with the splintered, worn handle and put all their elbow grease into the endeavor.

There will be no Mike Conley tonight. He is having his face put back together. This gives Robert Pera a perfect opportunity to experiment with cyborg implants and other nanotechnology to which I'm sure only he and few others have access. We can rebuild him. We have the money, and as long as Mike doesn't need a Wi-Fi hotspot in his head, we darn well might have the technology too.

But seriously, this should be a fun game, and hopefully Mike Conley is patched up and 3-finger-saluting FedexForum again soon.

A sweep for Memphis would really go a long ways towards helping Grizz fans remember how special this season has been in Memphis. A loss and eventual Game 5 would give Conley (and others) a chance to grab a few more moments of rest and to find just the right face mask he needs to start a new cult movement in Hoop City. If you thought neck tattoos and Z-Bowties were fun, just imagine a Mike Conley "Ultimate Warrior" mask giveaway.
