2015 NBA Playoffs Game 5 Thread: Portland Trail Blazers vs. Memphis Grizzlies

New, comments

The Blazers continue their attempt to make NBA history with zero margin for error.

The Portland Trail Blazers beat the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 4 Monday night to stave off elimination, cutting the Grizzlies series lead to 3-1. But the series shifts back to Memphis.


Portland hopes to use their formula for Game 4 success to continue shifting momentum, and hope to push to a Game 6 back in Portland. No NBA team has come back from a 3-0 deficit, and the last team to push an opponent to a seventh game was the 2003 Portland Trail Blazers, against the Dallas Mavericks.


Arron Afflalo and Chris Kaman are expected to play for the Blazers tonight. Mike Conley will not play after getting surgery due to a facial fracture suffered in Game 3. Beno Udrih is likely to play for Memphis.
