Clippers defeat Grizzlies 112-107 in Overtime

Late Friday night, the Clippers defeated the Grizzlies 112-107 in overtime during a western-conference duel.

Game Recap:

During the first quarter, both teams traded made baskets and the game was seemingly looking to be a good one down the stretch. Going into the locker room at the half , the Grizzlies led 52-44 thanks to a strong push during the second quarter in which the Grizzlies went on a 13-5 run during the last 3:41 of the half.

The third quarter belonged to the Clippers and gave them the chance to get back in the game. The team shot very well and outscored the Grizzlies 31-18 to give them the 75-70 advantage going into the final period of play. The Grizzlies were, however, able to muster enough strength to fight their way back into the game and chipped away at the Clippers’ lead. They eventually regained the lead and led by three with 3.0 seconds left on the clock. Unfortunately for the Grizzlies, Marc Gasol fouled Danilo Gallinari at the three-point line and gave the Clippers a chance to send the game to overtime. Gallinari ended up making all three of the free throws and sending the game to overtime where the Clippers would eventually use the newly-gained momentum to defeat the Grizzlies. The Grizzlies were without Mike Conley during overtime because he fouled out late in the fourth quarter.
