The Clippers carved up the normally stingy Grizzlies defense in Game 1 on Saturday, shooting 55.4 percent en route to a 112-91 victory. Chris Paul had 23 points and seven assists to lead seven Clippers in double figures. The Los Angeles bench scored 49 points, with Eric Bledsoe putting up 15 points on perfect 7-of-7 shooting.
The Clippers also had their way with the Grizzlies on the boards, winning the rebounding battle 47-23. Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol combined for just six rebounds, and Memphis' starting lineup as a whole had only 11 total for the entire game.
On a positive note for the Grizzlies, Jerryd Bayless played well off the bench, scoring 19 points on 6-of-12 shooting. And while Gasol struggled on the glass, he did have 16 points and seven assists. Randolph had 13 points on 6-of-10 from the field.
