The Los Angeles Clippers will try to take a commanding 3-1 series lead Monday night in Game 4 of their first-round series against the Memphis Grizzlies. The Clips won Game 3 in the final minute, as a Rudy Gay shot at the buzzer rattled around the rim and fell off for the one-point L.A. victory.
Memphis is in desperate need of a win, looking to avoid the brink of elimination and a two-game hole in the series. Lionel Hollins's club will try to rebound from their ugly fourth quarter on Saturday and even it up to re-take home court advantage. Game 4 is the second game of a doubleheader on TNT.
