Video: All the buckets of Clippers dramatic comeback

Apr 30, 2012, 1:52 PM EDT

How did the Clippers do it? They went on a 28-3 run to close out Sunday night’s game and steal a dramatic 99-98 win over the Memphis Grizzlies. If you want to see how they did it, above you can see all the baskets of that run. There are some easy buckets inside and Nick Young raining down threes.

Memphis slipped on defense, but the bigger problem was their offense disapeared — they stopped pounding the ball inside with Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph, and the good looks they did get they just missed. It snowballed. And every miss fueled the Clippers, who to the credit of the young team did not roll over.

We thought going in this would be the best series of the first round, but who saw this coming?

    Clippers were playing with a whole different energy level and body language in the 4th, it’s like they were a different team after Paul came back in. Evans hustle and heart, but also CP3’s leadership got them back in the game. if you look at all the great passes Paul made at the end, his free throw’s and his general feel for the game, also simply his believe (you could just tell that he still wanted to win), it was amazing! also give young credit for making those shots, that’s exactely why they got him at trade deadline.
    midway 3rd quarter i was thinking to myself ‘wow, those grizzlies can go far this year’, they were playing exceptional. they’re a really balanced team, but this loss gotta scare every Memphis fan, just devestating if you only score 1 FG in the last 8 minutes and you’re not disciplined enough to get some stops
