The Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies will play Game 2 of their playoff series on Wednesday night. The Clippers hold a 1-0 series lead.
In the first game between the two teams in their opening-round playoff series on Monday night, the Los Angeles Clippers overcame a 24-point deficit in the last nine minutes of regulation to defeat the hometown Memphis Grizzlies and claim a 1-0 series lead. Now the Grizzlies will hope to even the score before the series heads to Southern California.
On Wednesday night, Game 2 will once again take place in Memphis. The Clippers will try to take a commanding lead back to the Staples Center. The Clippers lost a valuable player in Game 1, as Caron Butler suffered a broken hand. The Grizzlies will attempt to shut down Blake Griffin and Chris Paul as effectively as they did for the first 40 minutes of Monday's game.
The game will tip off at 9:30 p.m. ET and will be televised nationally on TNT.
