2013 NBA Playoffs Recap: Grizzlies Beat Clippers, 118-105, To Advance To Second Round
Mike Conley and Zach Randolph each scored 23 points, and the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Los Angeles Clippers, 118-105, in Memphis on Friday night to win Game 6 and take the first-round, best-of-seven NBA playoff series, four games to two. After dropping the first two games of the series, Memphis rallied to win four consecutive games — all by double figure margins. Tony Allen had 19 points, and Jerryd Bayless scored 16 for Memphis. The Grizzlies advanced to face the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference semifinals.
Matt Barnes scored 30 points to lead Los Angeles, while Chris Paul had 28 points before he was ejected for arguing with 2:29 to play. Clippers’ star Blake Griffin was limited to 14 minutes of playing time with a sprained ankle. Griffin scored just nine points and was involved in a wrestling skirmish with Randolph on the floor in the lane in the second half.
