It's been a long, long time since fans of the Los Angeles Clippers can claim a playoff bound team, but they certainly can now as Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and Co. are looking to make a deep playoff run, starting this weekend against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Even though their matchup has been decided, home court advantage is stil up in the air between these two. Memphis has to close out the season with a win over the Magic, but if they don't than the Clippers will have home court advantage for the first time in franchise history.

Los Angeles took the season series with the Griz 2-1 with the home team taking each contest. Game one, wherever it may be played, will begin this Sunday.
