no excuse for memphis  u r up 20 pts in a PLAYOFF game and plain and simple u choke thats just  pathetic, now the clips way too show some guts, i be mem had them half/full, i  don't know if that was the biggest comeback in nba playoff history but it was the biggest 4th qtr comeback, i remember dal in 03 was down like 20+ to  the spurs and beat them

well this is right up there with the lakers choking away the 24 point lead in game 4 of the finals on their homecourt and the 15 pt lead the heat blew last year against the mavs in game 2 of the finals (that was the best one cuz dirty dwade kept his hand in the air after making the 3)

i can't remember a bigger choke...


u have to give a lot of credit to the clip tho because they had every right to pack it in.  paul said del negro wanted to take paul out and paul argued to come back in

That was bad but nowhere and I mean NOWHERE near as bad as the these 2 losses were. I mean up 24 pts with 8 minutes left for Memphis and up 30-3 or whatever it was for Houston against Buffalo and their backup QB takes the cake here.

Look Memphis....

What you have here are rubbish expansion teams, with no culture, no history and no playoff experience.

They think they know but they have got no friggin idea.

to blow a 27 point lead on your home court and a 24 point lead or whatever it was in the final 8 minutes has got to be in the top 3 biggest chokes in nba history.  I could see maybe a team coming back when they are at home because of the crowd urging them on but to do it on the road? wtf

Memphis stinks, to blow a lead like that on your home court, ur better off just packing it in, and putting your head up the Clippers behind since that's what they're good for anyways

I did not know they lost until I saw this thread. How the darn did this even happen? I fell asleep and Memphis was crushing them in every aspect.
