Game six in the first round of the NBA Western Conference encounter between Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies occurs live tonight in the home of the blues – Memphis, TN – where the Grizzlies are currently partaking in the NBA post-season for their third consecutive year.

Both LA Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies have flatly refused to yield; which is evident in the twists and turns the series has provided; as Memphis narrowly have the upper hand with a 3-2 advantage in the best of seven series showdown.

MEM
Points C. Paul 21.8 Z. Randolph 20.4
Rebounds D. Jordan 6.8 Z. Randolph 8.6
Assists C. Paul 6.0 M. Conley 8.6
Steals C. Paul 2.0 T. Allen 1.8
Blocks D. Jordan 2.0 M. Gasol 1.8

Chauncey Billups return from a regular season-long injury hiatus has been timely; as Chauncey (Billups) is the exclusive athlete on the LA Clippers roster with a claim to hold an NBA World Championship (Detroit Pistons – 2004).
Chris Paul and Blake Griffin are in the top one-two scoring punch duos in the NBA; with Chris Paul being a cerebral defensive player, igniting fast-break, fast and furious basketball with steals leading to offensive scoring for the Clippers.

“We got to go there, win there. We’ve shown the ability to do it before. We know it’s going to be rowdy in there. We knew that Game 6 was going to be a close-out game for somebody. We just hoped it wouldn’t be an opportunity for them, but it is. We just got to make it work.” commented LA Clippers All-Star Point Guard, Chris Paul.

Zach Randolph’s southpaw, extended shooting range, growth in leadership, underrated passing ability, and adeptness in putting the ball skillfully on the floor for a power forward sets the talented Michigan St. Spartan product apart from the pack. NBA defensive player of the year, Marc Gasol, has been the Grizzlies player of the year by observation of experts and viewers; stepping out of the shadow of his brother, Pau (Gasol).

Mike Conley is looking more convincingly confident as an NBA starting point guard; accentuating his assets by distributing the basketball effectively to his team mates. Tayshaun Prince is an underrated difference maker on both ends, and – as like LA Clippers opponent and former Pistons team mate Chauncey Billups- Prince is the only Memphis Grizzlies player to have lifted the prestigious Larry O’Brien trophy.

Will tonight be a close shave for the clippers, or will Memphis Grizzlies move one step closer to becoming ‘The King’ of the NBA?
