Notebook: Clippers 87, Grizzlies 86


Posted Saturday May 5, 2012 9:14PM

By Dan Arritt, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: The Clippers did everything required to earn a victory Saturday afternoon in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round series against the Grizzlies. Everything except make their free throws. The Clippers missed five straight from the line in the final 12 seconds, and Memphis forward Rudy Gay sank two 3-pointers in the final 13 ticks before missing another at the buzzer, allowing L.A. to escape with an 87-86 victory at Staples Center and take a 2-1 series edge.

QUOTABLE: "We did a nice job clamping down in the fourth quarter. Rudy had a couple of tough shots and we missed 17 free throws. This was a gutsy performance and we turned it up there in the third quarter and were able to stay close."
-- Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro

THE STAT: The Clippers weren't just bad from the line in the closing seconds, they were awful the entire game. They shot 13-for-30 from the stripe (43.3 percent), worst than their 3-point shooting percentage (47.1). The poor free-throw shooting shouldn't come as a surprise, as the Clippers shot 68 percent from the line during the regular season, the worst in franchise history and the lowest percentage in the NBA since the 2000-01 season.

TURNING POINT: A 9-0 run starting with 3:16 remaining in the game gave the Clippers an 86-80 lead with 23 seconds left. Gay then sank the first of two desperation 3s with 13 seconds on the game clock. Clippers back-up guard Eric Bledsoe was immediately fouled, made the first free throw and missed the second, but back-up forward Reggie Evans slid under Marc Gasol and grabbed the offensive rebound. He was immediately fouled and proceeded to miss both foul shots, which would have given the Clippers a six point-point lead. Gay then sank another 26-footer, cutting the deficit to one point with eight seconds left. Out of timeouts, the Clippers managed to inbounds the ball to Bledsoe, a 71.8 percent free-throw shooter in his two-year NBA career. This time, he missed both. Out of timeouts, Gilbert Arenas collected the rebound, brought the ball up the floor and passed to Gay, who let go of an off-balance 3 pointer with Randy Foye on his hip. The ball hit the front of the run, the backboard and then bounced straight out to the relief of the Clippers and their faithful.

HOT: After going scoreless the first 17 minutes of the game, Gay scored 24 points on 13 shots, none bigger than his back-to-back 3s late in the game. Chris Paul had 24 points, 11 assists and four steals to lead the Clippers, and Blake Griffin contributed 17 points and drew a number of fouls that put a few key players on Memphis in foul trouble. On the downside, Griffin shot 3-for-9 from the line and committed a team-high five turnovers. The player who stepped up most for the Clippers was Foye. After being held to one 3-pointer in the first two games of the series, he shot 4-for-5 from beyond the arc to finish with 16 points. His 3-pointer with 3:16 remaining finally got the Clippers even after they fell behind midway through the third quarter.

NOT: Since the Clippers' atrocious free-throw shooting has already been documented, and remarkably did not end up costing them the game, the next-biggest letdown came from Memphis starters Mike Conley, Tony Allen and Gasol. All three scored below their regular-season averages, leaving Gay (24 points) and Zach Randolph (17 points) to carry the load. Gasol finished with 11 points and took just five field-goal attempts, Conley shot 3-for-10 and scored nine points and Allen was held to four points and lost his one-on-one battle with Foye for the first time in the series.

GOOD MOVE: The Clippers used an 18-1 run to take a 13-point lead early in the second quarter, then gave it all back courtesy of a 13-0 run by the Grizzlies later in the quarter. Griffin gave the L.A. fans something to be excited about during halftime, however, stealing an inbounds pass after Paul had made two free throws with 2.3 seconds left. He took the ball right at the basket and scored on a slam dunk just as time expired, giving the Clippers a 50-46 lead.

BAD MOVE: Bledsoe is a great change-of-pace guard with tremendous speed and long arms that can make things tough on opponents, but playing him down the stretch over Nick Young or Mo Williams was a big gamble. Both Young and Williams are more experienced, cooler under pressure and can hit clutch free throws. Don't expect to see Bledsoe on the floor late in close games during the rest of this series.

QUOTABLE II: "I liked [Bledsoe] on Conley with his foot speed. Chris had logged a lot of minutes ... defensively, his physicality and his rebounding helped us. "
-- Del Negro.

NOTABLE: The Clippers were playing their first home playoff game in six years. ... Evans finished with 11 rebounds for the Clippers, seven more than his nearest teammate. ... The Grizzlies were 3-0 in one-point games during the regular season but 0-2 in three playoff games. Gay also missed the game-winner at the buzzer in a one-point loss in Game 1.

UP NEXT: Game 4, Monday @ Staples Center, 10:30 p.m. ET.
