Post 2nd Season Begins

The Memphis Grizzlies are set to enter the playoffs with all-time records in wins, road wins and possibly home wins too. What isn't likely is them hosting a playoff series for the 2nd time in history as the Western Conference lived up to the reputation of being the real major league.

The Grizzlies are most likely going to play the LA Clippers again in the first round. Last year the series went 7 grueling games that included an incredble 27 point blown lead in the 4th quarter and lots of competitive games. This year should be no different as both teams come in playing well and setting franchise records for wins. The Clippers have more experience thanks to a veteran laden bench but also are dealing with more issues as both Chauncey Billups and Caron Butler have missed games lately with injury.

A lot hangs on the outcome of the series as Lionel Hollins is without a contract as is Tony Allen and Jerryd Bayless can opt out of his contract after the season. The Clippers have to resign Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and numerous other players as well and their coach is rumored to be on the hot seat as well.

What are your thoughts about the playoffs this year?

As you say, Chip, it will be a hard fought series and I think that the Grizzlies will end up having to do what the Clippers did last year to the Grizzlies. It will come down to the 7th game having to be a must win for the Clippers (or possibly the 6th game if the Grizzlies sweep the games at FedEx).

If the Clippers take 3 of the first 5 games, then I don't think the Grizzlies can win both games 6 and 7 at the Clippers home. The Grizzlies to have a shot at upsetting the Clippers must win at least 3 of the first 5 games.
