Mo Williams, Blake Griffin Lead Clippers Over Grizzlies In Memphis, 82-81

The Los Angeles Clippers don't have many road wins this season, but they do have a number of impressive ones. The Clippers outscored the Grizzlies by 10 points in the final period tonight to pull out a wild 82-81 victory in Memphis, a team fighting for playoff seeding in the Western Conference. Mo Williams scored 16 points, including nine in the fourth quarter to lead the comeback.

The win was the Clippers' ninth road win of the season. Blake Griffin scored 15 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for the Clippers, his 60th double-double on the season. Griffin how has 949 rebounds on the season, meaning he has to grab 51 rebounds over the final four games (13.8 boards per contest) to finish with 1,000 rebounds. No Los Angeles Clipper has ever had 1,000 rebounds in a season, and the last player in franchise history to do so was Swen Nater, who had 1,017 rebounds for San Diego in 1980-1981.

The Clippers play tomorrow night in Oklahoma City.
