The Memphis Grizzlies are looking to avoid a 2-0 hole to the Los Angeles Clippers in their Western Conference Quarterfinals series. They lead 51-47 at halftime of Game 2 on Wednesday night, and have done so with tremendous balance.
How tremendous? No Grizzlies player has more than eight points. But all seven Grizzlies who have scored — Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph, Tony Allen, Mike Conley, Rudy Gay, O.J. Mayo, and Marresse Speights — have at least six points.
Contrast that with the Clippers' heavy dose of Chris Paul — 16 points, with no other Clipper scoring more than six in the first 24 minutes — and it's not hard to see why Memphis leads.
But Memphis leading hasn't necessarily worked out in the end for the Grizzlies, and the Clippers, of course, have been down by more in this series.
