Notebook: Clippers 101, Grizzlies 97


Posted Tuesday May 8, 2012 2:56AM

By Dan Arritt, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: If the Clippers end up winning their best-of-seven series against the Grizzlies, they'll have one player to thank in particular. Chris Paul put the team on his back in overtime Monday night and led the Clippers to a 101-97 victory in Game 4 of the Western Conference first-round series at Staples Center, giving L.A. a 3-1 series edge.

QUOTABLE: "He's a great player and that's what great players do."
-- Memphis coach Lionel Hollins on Paul.

THE STAT: The Clippers were getting outscored, 20-0, in second-chance points when Reggie Evans rebounded a missed free throw by Blake Griffin with 3:46 remaining in overtime and got the ball to Paul, who sank a pull-up jumper for a 92-89 lead. The Clippers never trailed again.

TURNING POINT: After the Clippers pushed their overtime lead to six, Memphis scored four consecutive points to get the deficit back to two with 10 seconds remaining. The Clippers, who missed five consecutive free throws in the final 12 seconds of Game 3, giving the Grizzlies a chance to steal the victory, made sure they had veteran guard Mo Williams on the floor this time. After calling back-to-back timeouts to design an inbounds play, the Clippers got the ball to Williams, who was fouled with 7.2 seconds left and hit nothing but net, sealing the victory.

HOT: After a quiet fourth quarter in which he scored just two points, Paul took the bull by the horns in the five-minute overtime period, shooting 4-for-5 and scoring eight of his team's 14 points. He tickled a possible triple-double, finishing with 27 points, a team-high nine rebounds and seven assists. He also committed just two turnovers against the No. 1 team in the league in steals during the regular season. The point guard position also turned out to best option for the Grizzlies as well. Mike Conley finished with a season-high 25 points on 10-for-15 shooting. He also grabbed seven rebounds and dished out eight assists.

NOT: Memphis center Marc Gasol made his only basket of the night on a slam dunk with 37 seconds remaining in overtime. By then, Griffin had fouled out and the Clippers were more interested in guarding the 3-point line anyway. He finished 1-for-4 from the floor and 6-for-10 from the free-throw line. Rudy Gay, who missed two game-winning baskets earlier in the series, struggled with his shot most of the game, finishing 8-for-25 with 23 points. After a strong Game 3, Randy Foye disappeared for the third time in this series, finishing with three points on 1-for-5 shooting. He didn't even have to contend with Memphis defensive wizard Tony Allen, who spent most of the game guarding Paul.

GOOD MOVE: After making the mistake of leaving second-year guard Eric Bledsoe on the floor late in Game 3, which nearly cost the Clippers the victory when he missed three straight free throws in the final 12 seconds, Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro made sure he had his veterans on the floor in the closing seconds of overtime.

BAD MOVE: The teams have combined for 13 individual technical fouls in the series, but none came at a worse time than the one by Clippers center DeAndre Jordan with 1:19 remaining in the first half. The Clippers were leading by 10 points at the time when Jordan hollered at a referee after he was whistled for an offensive foul on Marreese Speights. Conley made the free throw, Jordan went to the bench and his replacement, Kenyon Martin, fouled Speights on 3-point play, cutting the deficit to six points at the half.

QUOTABLE II: "It's a great battle, it's a great series ... We haven't come out on the long end yet."
-- Hollins.

NOTABLE: The Clippers, who shot 13-for-30 from the free-throw line in Game 3, the lowest-percentage in NBA playoff history for a team with at least 30 attempts, made their first 10 foul shots before finishing 28-for-40. Griffin finished with 30 points on 10-for-15 shooting, but was held under 10 rebounds for the fourth consecutive game. Griffin, who averaged 10.9 rebounds in the regular season, had just four rebounds in Game 3 and five in Game 4 ... The Clippers were 4-1 in overtime games during the regular season, the Grizzlies were 1-2.

UP NEXT: Game 5, Wednesday at Memphis, 9:30 p.m. ET.
