Through all of these weeks I have written about the great Last Man Standing contest going on right now at America’s Bookie. I have given you my selections every week and why I made them. And in all honesty, throughout this entire period of time I haven’t even looked at how I was doing. I knew that with two entries, I was still alive was one of them, and that I was continuing to win with one of those entries week after week. But I had no idea how close it was to the end.

The Clippers travel to Memphis to renew their rivalry with the Grizzlies. The Clippers improved to 7-4 after last Thursday’s 110-93 at Miami after hitting 13 of 31 three-pointers and shooting 55.8 percent overall. Blake Griffin and Chris Paul finished with a team-high 26 points apiece.
The Clippers are built around their offense, averaging 103.5 points per game but their defense allows 100.6 points per game, which could be a problem against the Grizzlies. Blake Griffin leads the team with 23.1 points per game and Chris Paul adds 18.0 points and team-bests with 9.9 assists and 2.1 steals.

The best potential for an upset came at Anfield in Group B, where Champions League debutants Ludogorets lost at the death to host Liverpool, 2-1. All three goals were scored in the final 11 minutes. Dani Abalo equalized for the Bulgarians, assisted by fellow substitute Younes Hamza in the 91st minute. But the Reds earned a penalty a minute continue
Very disappointing end to a very disappointing Barclays Masters Final as Federer was forced to withdraw from the tourney due to injury and there was no final. He played great along the way however and his new attacking style was effective, he just couldn’t get out of bed after very hard semifinal vs. his friend Stan Wawrinka. That is what happens when you play friends, the matches are always very grueling because you know each other’s games so well, and the guy who usually wins always finds a way in the end. Roger is no spring chicken and he continue
