Scouting Report: Clippers vs. Grizzlies 

April, 29, 2012
By John Carroll

The Memphis Grizzlies are a tough, hungry team that wants to double last year's postseason efforts and make a deep run in 2012. Lionel Hollins has done a terrific job molding this team into an excellent defensive team that pounds the ball inside on offense. The Grizzlies have one of the deepest frontcourts in the NBA with Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph and Marreese Speights. Randolph may be the best low-post player in the NBA and he can get 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Grizzlies at any time in the postseason. They have a wing player in Rudy Gay who is an effortless, natural scorer. At the defensive end of the floor the Grizzlies have the height, length and toughness to combat the explosive play of Blake Griffin and negate his effectiveness.

The Grizzlies ended the season playing good basketball, going 13-3 in the month of April. They have the necessary tools to win in the postseason.
