The Los Angeles Clippers are one win away from advancing to the Western Conference semifinals. The series returns to Memphis for Game 5 on Wednesday as the Grizzlies attempt to stave off elimination.
On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Clippers will visit the Memphis Grizzlies for Game 5 of their opening-round series in the 2012 NBA playoffs. Both teams are attempting to advance to the Western Conference semifinals, but the Grizzlies now find their backs up against the wall as the series returns to Memphis.
The Clippers will enter the game with a 3-1 advantage in the best-of-seven series. Two of the games have featured big fourth-quarter comebacks and another necessitated overtime, so odds are good that Game 5 will continue to be competitive and anything but dull.
Wednesday's game will tip off at 9:30 p.m. ET and will be televised nationally on TNT.
