LA Clippers 98, Memphis 105: Despite shooting 56 percent from the field, the Clippers were pummeled inside and Memphis pulled away in the final five minutes to knot the series at one. Memphis collected 16 offensive rebounds (LA had four), had an 18-6 advantage on 2nd chance points and got to the line 39 times (LA just 18). The series moves back to LA, but history is on the Grizzlies’ side.
San Antonio 114, Utah 83: Maybe they’ll get one in Utah and make this interesting? Getting broomed by the Spurs isn’t a great way to go into the offseason and try to pursue Steve Nash to move to Salt Lake City. Seven Spurs scored in double figures.
Indiana 97, Orlando 74: Yup, this series is over. If the Magic can’t take 3-pointers (only attempted 15), and can’t score inside, how do they expect to compete? Scoring totals for Orlando in this series: 81, 78, 74. Danny Granger scored 26 points for Indiana and made as many three-pointers (five) as the Magic did.
