MEMPHIS‚ÄĒGrizzlies players expressed frustration during a press conference Monday, admitting they regretted having gone to bed early and missed out on seeing one of the most improbable comebacks in NBA history as the Clippers overcame a 27-point deficit to defeat the Grizzlies 99-98. "We thought the game was over, just like I'm sure everybody else did, so we decided to hit the sack. I'm pissed, because it would have been cool to see such a once-in-a-lifetime finish,"¬†said small forward Rudy Gay, who was already resting up for his Wednesday game against Los Angeles when the buzzer sounded on the Clippers' comeback.¬†"That kind of determination and refusal to give up would have been pretty inspiring for our team to see, especially now that we're down a game in the playoffs."¬†Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins is standing by his decision to send the team to bed early, claiming he hates it when players are tired and grumpy during practice.
