Team Form

LA Clippers

Doc Rivers and his men show a great possibility of entering the Western Conference’s top 3 spot. A win against the Minnesota Timberwolves helped them climb a notch higher. Currently, they occupy the 4th spot of the table and is just 2 victories away from San Antonio and Portalnd.
Chris Paul stood out as one of the vital forces behind their narrow 4-point victory against the Timberwolves. Several minutes before the buzzer beater, he scored a foul from Ricky Rubio, which enabled him to secure extra points for the team. Perhaps if there is any issue that the group confronts, this is consistency.

 

Consistency plays a vital role in their upcoming match against Memphis. Although they rank better, the Grizzlies let them have a taste of their 3rd defeat. It was a close one. The match ended in 106-102 favoring Memphis and thus, they simply cannot take this club lightly.

 

Memphis Grizzlies

The Grizzlies’ very own Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol were a tandem that cannot be easily ignored. This is most especially true in the Clippers’ context. The combination of these 2 great players resulted in Clippers’ 3rd defeat and should they continue to show off that chemistry on the court, there is a strong possibility for them to dominate the boards again.

 

The Clippers though is a team that cannot be underestimated. In their first match, they were a constant a threat and in several occasions, they almost took the lead—well, almost. At the heart of it, everything boils down to one fact—that they can be the Clippers’ dreaded waterloo.

 

Prediction: Los Angeles
