The Los Angeles Clippers ended their road trip on a sour note, getting blown out in Memphis by the Grizzlies, 105-82. Zach Randolph dominated one of his former teams, scoring 30 points and grabbing 12 rebounds, making 12 of his 18 field goals. Meanwhile, Blake Griffin had arguably his worst game as a professional, with eight points and nine rebounds in 32 minutes.
Griffin, who was held to single digits in points for the first time in his career, made just four of his 10 field goal attempts. He also had under 10 rebounds for just the 14th time all year. The All-Star has 54 double-doubles this season, which is one shy of tying Elton Brand's 2001-2002 campaign for the most double-doubles in a season in Clippers' history.
Marc Gasol grabbed 11 rebounds and scored four points for Memphis, who snapped a two-game losing streak. The Clippers shot just 40% from the field, including making just four of 17 three-pointers. Memphis made 53.6% of their field goals, including six of 12 from distance.
Eric Beldsoe led the Clippers with 19 points off the bench. The Clippers had a chance for the first 4-1 road trip in franchise history with a win tonight. But even though they didn't get the victory tonight, they still return home with the first winning road trip of five games or more in over five years. The Clippers start a four-game homestand on Wednesday night at Staples Center against Philadelphia.
