Lionel Hollins returned to Memphis with an apology.

The Grizzlies head coach regretted saying Monday during Game 4 that Clippers all-star point guard Chris Paul flops.

But Hollins stopped there.

He doesn't lament how his team has played, even though the Griz suit up tonight for Game 5 down 3-1 in their Western Conference first-round playoff series with Paul and the Los Angeles Clippers.
