Griz’ Conley: Playoff Pressure on Clippers
The Grizzlies took care of another bit of business Monday night, dispatching the Cleveland Cavaliers, 109-101.
No, it wasn’t a thing of beauty. It felt more like an errand, a necessary household chore.
“We did what we had to do,” said Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley.
“Now the pressure is on them.”
By them, he meant the Los Angeles Clippers, aka the team you are free to start loathing any day now.
The Grizzlies will almost certainly play the Clippers in the first-round of the playoffs. The only way that won’t happen is if the Clippers catch the Los Angeles Lakers for third place in the Western Conference, which would require the Lakers to lose to the Sacramento Kings in the last game of their season so don’t bet your MLG&W money on that.
