The first-round series between the Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies had a complicated set of rules determining home-court advantage, and that may end up being the difference-maker. The Clippers rode a masterful performance from Chris Paul to a 112-91 win over the Grizzlies at the Staples Center to take a 1-0 series lead.

Paul had 23 points on an efficient 7-of-11 shooting performance, along with 7 assists and 2 steals. A Paul three-pointer late in the game to increase the lead from 12 to 15 sealed the game for the Clippers.
