Clippers Vs. Grizzlies Final Score: Los Angeles Completes Incredible Comeback, 99-98

There are no real words to describe what happened in Memphis on Sunday night. The Los Angeles Clippers were as good as dead in the fourth quarter, trailing by 23 as it began and struggling to make any kind of headway against the Grizzlies. It was all but over, and most had given up on the game.

And then, with about eight minutes to go, Memphis suddenly went completely cold. There was no semblance of offensive rhythm and no buckets to show for it. At the same time, the Clippers were suddenly revived on the offensive end. Shots started falling, players were getting open and, surprisingly, Memphis was in trouble.

The Grizzlies lead dwindled to 16, then nine, then, in the final minute, it was gone. The Clippers took the lead for the first time in the game with 50 seconds to go, inching ahead 97-96 on a Reggie Evans lay-in. Memphis answered with a Rudy Gay two, but Chris Paul sunk two free throws on the other end with 23 seconds to go to retake the lead.

The Grizzlies' final possession ended with a contested shot by Gay, and the Clippers had done it. A 28-3 run to end the game brought Los Angeles all the way back, and the Clippers pulled off the most improbable of wins, 99-98.
