The Anatomy of a Comeback- Clippers Overcome 27 Point Deficit to Defeat Grizzlies
Of the the ‘Yogi-isms’ that are still prevalent in our modern day vernacular, perhaps none is more used than, “It ain’t over till it’s over.” The Los Angeles Clippers certainly proved that last night in their 27 point comeback against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Usually in a huge comeback we can point to one key moment or play that changed the momentum of the game. The Clippers didn’t really have that key play, they just continually chipped away at the lead while Memphis inexplicably couldn’t execute in the half court.
There may have been one possession for the Clips that changed the momentum. Trailing 95-73, Reggie Evans scored a lay-up and had a chance for an old fashioned three point play. Evans missed the free throw, Blake Griffin grabbed the rebound and scored on an easy dunk. From that point on, L.A. outscored Memphis 24-3.
Here are some of the highlights from the final seven plus minutes of last night’s game.
