The Clippers closed off their record-setting season on Friday night, losing to the Memphis Grizzlies in the 6th game of the Playoffs.
It was an unusual evening for the Clippers with Blake Griffin battling a right ankle sprain, while Chris Paul played with a bruised left thumb and a sour stomach. Matt Barnes tallied a playoff career-high of 30 points with 10 rebounds. Despite outshooting the Grizzlies from the field, the Clippers racked up 33 fouls and five technicals. The Grizzlies were able to convert consistently from the free-throw line, eventually winning 118 to 105.
After taking a quick two-game lead in the playoffs, the Clippers struggled throughout the next four games, falling 4-2 to the Grizzlies in Game 6.
The loss came after a historic season for the Clippers who took their first-ever Pacific Division Championship, with a 17-game winning streak and tallying up a franchise-record of 56 regular season wins.
