When that play happened, it felt like a turning point. Blake Griffin was fighting through a knee injury and was not himself. DeAndre Jordan has been a ghost this series. But this might have been the play of the night and felt like the Clippers that fill up the highlight reels. The game was close in the third quarter at the time and it felt like this might swing the momentum all the way to Los Angeles.
Alas, it was not to be. The Grizzlies were the better fourth quarter team, got the win and forced a Game 7. But this was still the most entertaining play of Friday night.
