Playing their second straight game and fourth in five days, Memphis (10-7) struggled to find energy as its seven-game winning streak ended with a 97-84 loss at Portland on Tuesday. The Grizzlies, who averaged 102.0 points and shot 49.6 percent during that winning stretch, missed their first 12 shots of the third quarter en route to a 37.8-percent shooting performance for the night.
"We're fatigued, we're tired," coach Lionel Hollins said. "When you're a little bit fatigued it's hard to keep attacking. You want to settle. We settled a little too much."
O.J. Mayo scored 20 points off the bench while Memphis' starters were held to 36 points on 15-of-51 shooting. Rudy Gay, averaging a team-leading 18.4 points, was limited to 11.
The Grizzlies, who had a day off Wednesday to rest and regroup, don't plan to use fatigue as an excuse now or at any point during the rest of this condensed NBA season.
"We just have to continue to fight, and that's what we're going to do," veteran swingman Tony Allen told the Grizzlies' official website.
The Grizzlies, who last dropped two in a row during the three-game skid from Jan. 6-10 that preceded their winning streak, will try to avoid a third consecutive loss to the Clippers (9-6).
Gay has averaged 21.1 points on 52.6 percent shooting in 15 career games versus the Clippers, but a shoulder injury forced him to miss Memphis' final three meetings against them last season.
Mayo, the former USC star, has scored at least 20 points in two of the last three games overall, but he's totaled just 15 on 5-of-25 shooting in the last three against the Clippers.
Los Angeles looks to bounce back from a testy 96-91 loss to the rival Lakers on Wednesday that featured six technical fouls. Though Paul returned to the Clippers' lineup after missing five games with a sore hamstring, the Lakers used an 11-4 fourth-quarter run to finally take control of a game their Staples Center co-tenants led for almost all of the first 3 1/2 quarters.
