NBA Playoffs 2012, Grizzlies Vs. Clippers Game 6 Halftime Score: Memphis Holds Slim Halftime Lead Over Hobbled L.A.

Looking to continue to apply pressure and force a deciding Game 7 after being down 3-1 in the series, the Memphis Grizzlies hold a 42-38 lead at the half over the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Clippers, playing with their two stars not at 100 percent, do not have a player in double figures. Chris Paul has just six points on 2-4 shooting, while Blake Griffin has been limited to just 13 minutes of floor time. Trailing by nine points after the first quarter, the Clips didn't seem to come to life until Vinny Del Negro looked to his bench, as Reggie Evans (eight rebounds) and Eric Bledsoe (six points) have provided valuable contributions in the game's first 24 minutes.

The Grizzlies, who are outshooting the Clippers 45 to 37 percent, have allowed L.A. back into this game with 13 turnovers.

They're led by Marc Gasol with 13 points
