LOS ANGELES (AP) - Zach Randolph scored 10 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter and the Memphis Grizzlies capitalized on Blake Griffin's ankle injury to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 103-93 on Tuesday night, taking a 3-2 lead in their first-round playoff series.
Mike Conley added 20 points for the Grizzlies, who will try to wrap it up Friday night at home. The Pacific Division champion Clippers, who won their last seven games of the regular season to clinch home-court advantage for the first two rounds, would force a deciding seventh game on Sunday back at Staples Center with a win in Memphis.
Chris Paul led Los Angeles with 35 points, tying a career playoff high.
