Clippers Close Out Successful Road Trip Against Grizzlies In Memphis

The Los Angeles Clippers look to finish off their most successful road trip of the season tonight with a win against the Memphis Grizzlies. The Clippers have won five of their last six games, including three of four on their current road trip. Win or lose tonight, the Clippers are guaranteed of their first winning road trip of five games or more since January 30 to February 8, 2006. Here are tonight's probable starters:

Clippers (26-41)

  • Point Guard: Mo Williams
  • Shooting Guard: Randy Foye
  • Small Forward: Ryan Gomes
  • Power Forward: Blake Griffin
  • Center: DeAndre Jordan

Grizzlies (36-31)

  • Point Guard: Mike Conley
  • Shooting Guard: Tony Allen
  • Small Forward: Sam Young
  • Power Forward: Zach Randolph
  • Center: Marc Gasol

At Clips Nation, Steve Perrin notes that the Clippers are trying to do something they have never done:

The Clippers have a chance to do something tonight they've never done before - win four games on a five game road trip. As sad as it is, the Clippers have never in their franchise history, even going back to the San Diego and Buffalo days, won 4 or more games on a 5 game road trip. They've already had an exceedingly good trip - even with a loss tonight, they tie their best ever results for a 5 game trip. But they've got a very good chance to make it four in five against the Grizzlies. When the Clippers played Memphis three months ago, they dominated almost every aspect of the game. In fact, the dominated every aspect except for one - turnovers. The Clippers committed a season high 27 turnovers in that one and lost the game by a single point.
