Above: Fans of the Memphis Grizzlies come in all sizes, shape and flavors.
I attended the NBA playoff game between the fifth-seeded (in the West) Memphis Grizzlies and fourth-seeded LA Clippers at the FedEx Forum last night. Even though the Grizzlies were ahead the entire game, it was exciting to the end.
We need to win the home games and steal one out there. It can happen.
The point spreads are interesting. The Clippers were 5.5 point favorites at home. The Grizz were 4.5 favorites when the action switched to Memphis. Shows the power of the home-court advantage.

Photos taken with my point-and-shoot. They won't allow spectators anything bigger than that.
