Randolph, Gasol helping Grizzlies dominate inside

By news admin

Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph are proving to be a tough tag team.

They almost seem to be taking turns scoring, whether it's Randolph with his layups and putbacks or Gasol with his hooks and jumpers. The duo has helped Memphis dominate inside and take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series with a chance to eliminate the Los Angeles Clippers.

It's a flashback to 2011 when Memphis upset No. 1 seed San Antonio before pushing Oklahoma City to seven games in the semifinals.

Coach Lionel Hollins says he's been fortunate to have two premier post players able to play inside or outside, and pass as needed. Hollins says it's a luxury not many coaches have and he's grateful.

Game 6 is Friday night in Memphis.
