Blake Griffin and the Clippers hit the road for a win-or-go-home Game 7 against the Grizzlies. Tony Allen charged down the lane for the one-handed flush as Memphis led by one heading to the fourth. But that's when L.A.'s reserves took over. Mo Williams canned a wing three to give the Clips a ten point lead with seven minutes to go. And Eric Bledsoe blew by Zach Randolph along the baseline for the series clinching reverse lay-up. Los Angeles' bench outscored the Memphis reserves 41-11 to key the 82-72 victory. The Clips earned a date with the top seeded Spurs after winning just their second playoff series since moving to L.A. in 1984.
