Eye on Basketball Podcast: Chris Paul denies Grizzlies
Zach Harper and Matt Moore discuss the Clippers-Grizzlies and Bulls-Nets games, the DPOY/MIP award winners, and Mike Dunlap's firing.
I'm joined by Matt Moore to talk about the dagger Chris Paul plunged into Matt's heart last night. With the Los Angeles Clippers' win over the Memphis Grizzlies to go up 2-0 in the series, is it time to wonder if the Grizzlies can even make this a series? A lot went right for them with the execution of the game plan and they still ended up losing because of the Clippers' talents. How much will home-court advantage play into Game 3? Are we looking at a sweep? Is Chris Paul just too good?
We also take a look at the Chicago Bulls evening up the series with the Brooklyn Nets with the road victory in Game 2. Where was Deron Williams in this game? Why did all of the good the Nets were able to do in Game 1 disappear? How inspiring was Joakim Noah's play on just one foot? And where does the series go from here?
There is discussion of all this, plus we review Paul George winning Most Improved Player, the reports of Marc Gasol winning Defensive Player of the Year, and the Charlotte Bobcats firing coach Mike Dunlap after just one season.
