Grizzlies Hammer Clippers to Tie Series 2-2
When Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol and forward Zach Randolph click together, the Memphis Grizzlies are very, very tough to beat. Gasol and Randolph had 24 points apiece and led a strong rebounding effort by the Grizzlies in a 104-83 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday that evened their first-round playoff series at 2-all.
“Their synergy is pretty amazing you know what I mean,” Clippers guard Chris Paul said. “Z Bo on the inside and big fella Marc, that’s another guard the way he passes the ball and shoots the ball. You just got to run them. You got to run them. You got to try to get them tired. You can’t just leave them in a rocking chair.”
Gasol also contributed 13 rebounds and Randolph had nine boards as Memphis won its second straight to ensure another stop in Tennessee for Game 6. Mike Conley had 15 points and 13 assists, and Tayshaun Prince scored 15 in his best game of the series.
