Clippers rally from huge deficit, beat Grizzlies 99-98, Eric Bledsoe a major reason why
He didn’t start, but when the game was on the line in the closing minutes, head coach Vinny Del Negro had Eric Bledsoe in the game. The decision paid off in a major way, as the Clippers got the huge come-from-behind victory over the Grizzlies tonight, 99-98. The Clippers connected on 13 of 17 shots in the 4th quarter, a quarter in which Bledsoe played significant minutes, and outscored the Grizzlies 35-13, capped off by two Chris Paul free throws that gave the Clippers a 1-point lead and the win.
Playing in the first playoff game of his career, Eric finished with a solid line of 9 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and only 1 turnover. At the end of the game, Bledsoe threw the ball into the air in celebration, which I filmed, and now you can watch.
