This Wednesday they’ll look to pick up the pieces in time to salvage at least one game from their two-game stand with home court advantage. Get NBA betting lines for the playoffs at Bovada.
After fighting out to a 27-point lead through three quarters, the wheels came off for the Grizzlies in the fourth. The result was an L.A. comeback that tied the NBA playoff record. The late-game heroics didn’t go unnoticed on the NBA futures list.
Now with 20/1 odds of winning the NBA championship, the Clippers are a legitimate threat in the Western Conference. The depth that they showed on Sunday will have to be in full effect for the remainder of the postseason, however, if they want to be taken seriously among the top tier of contenders in the league.
Is it too early to write off Memphis altogether? There’s a reason the NBA odds favored them to start the series after all, and with 25/1 odds, they’re not exactly pushovers in the eyes of basketball odds makers.
Can Blake Griffin and Chris Paul expect more support from their bench over the course of the season? And more importantly, will it be enough to keep the Clippers sailing past the scrappy, and deceivingly dominant, Grizzlies.
