Holy freaking Batman!! What an unbelievable win for the Los Angeles Clippers last night beating the Grizzlies 99-98 in the final seconds after one of the most incredible comebacks in NBA history. I’ll be honest with you guys, I stopped watching in the 3rd quarter when it was pretty obvious for me that the guys from Memphis were going to win it easily since they were leading by almost 30 points but I was back a bit later..
Right in the middle of this epic comeback, with around 5 minutes left from the fourth. It was a jaw dropping 26-1 run from the Clippers in the 4th, taking advantage from every opportunity and from the fact that Memphis got complacent after their pretty great game. The Grizzlies dominated the first three quarters, unleashing a lot of three pointers and playing great inside as well but we all know the fourth quarter is the most important.
Reggie Evans and Nick Young, two of the lesser known Clippers, sparked the comeback, with Evans’ crazy defense and Young catching fire and dropping shot after shot, including three three points in just one minute to turn the momentum for good. Blake Griffin wasn’t too great during the game but he scored two clutch free throws in the final minute, which is quite impressive from a guy that’s not too great from the free throw line. He was 7 of 15 from the field and also had seven rebounds in the game.
Chris Paul finished with just 14 points and 11 assists but he was a big part of this epic comeback always finding open team mates in the last minutes and more importantly, scoring the go-ahead free throws in the final seconds of the game. This video below presenting the 28-3 run from the final quarter is perfect to see how amazing this comeback was.
