Research Notes

  • Chris Paul scored 11 of his 21 first half points as the pick-and-roll ball handler in Game 5, but was held to 4 points on those plays in the second half. In all three losses this postseason, the Grizzlies have limited Paul's pick-and-roll effectiveness.

  • Zach Randolph had 39 touches in Game 5, his most in a game this series and one more than he had in the first two games combined. Randolph has led the Grizzlies in scoring in each of the team's wins this postseason.
