With that introduction, I jump into a series of player matchup comparisons starting with the point guard position. You will see right away how vital home-court will be just looking at the Clippers vaunted starters.
Mike ConleySkills: The famous "Keep the Ball on a String" video.
Chris PaulSkills: Looks somewhat rusty but still got it. Both basically run their team. The Grizzlies have 4 other very strong leaders in Gay, Randolph, Gasol, and Mayo. Conley is ultimately the guy that operates the offense, and executes the coaches' will out there on the floor. Chris Paul is more of a lone wolf out there running the offense, calling the shots, and making the plays. In crunch time it's CP3 time and the other guys are supporting characters.
and Knock em down!
