Grizzlies Play for Homecourt Tonight

Posted By on Thu, Apr 26, 2012 at 8:08 AM

Last season was a period of firsts for the Grizzlies franchise: First playoff win, first home playoff win, first playoff series win, first Game 7.

Now the team is on the precipice of another: With back-to-back road losses to the Atlanta Hawks and, last night, the New York Knicks, the Los Angeles Clippers have opened the door for the Grizzlies to host a playoff series for the first time in franchise history.

A Grizzlies win tonight over the Orlando Magic — 7 p.m. at FedExForum — will secure the #4 seed in the Western Conference, which would mean that the Grizzlies-Clippers series would open in Memphis this weekend.

I'll be tweeting live from the game tonight and will have a series breakdown post up on the site sometime tomorrow. In the meantime, my "state of the team" playoff preview column from this week's print edition of the Flyer is now online. You can read it here.
