Sleepless Grizzlies try to shake off blown lead
Grizzlies trying to shake blowing 27-point lead along with home-court edge to Clippers
By The Associated Press

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) ' The Memphis Grizzlies have a hangover so bad sleep was almost impossible, and they can only hope two days can help them shake the sick feeling of blowing a 27-point lead right along with home-court advantage to open the playoffs.

Zach Randolph couldn't sleep, so he watched himself miss an easy layup late in Sunday night's 99-98 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on tape. Guard Mike Conley tossed and turned before heading back to the gym.

Coach Lionel Hollins is preaching calm to his Grizzlies ' and a city. He notes it's only one loss and Memphis can even the series Wednesday in Game 2.

The Clippers know their comeback was historic. Their challenge is playing defense the whole game and adjusting without Caron Butler, lost because of a broken left hand.
