Clippers beat the Grizzlies which is saying a lot. The problem with them is that they need to not run their half court offense through Blake Griffin. Or at least not run a post up play through him. He is not that style of player.
Clippers were also plagued with injuries. Even losing Billups early in the season threw a wrench in their progress. They struggled to stay above 50% in regular season games played without him. Paul was clearly not playing anywhere near 100% until game 4 vs SA and the same was true for Griffin until games 3 and 4. I was really hoping they would take a game or 2 from SA, but I think they have a very bright future.
