Young Grizzlies fan catches cathartic case of NBA playoffs fever (video)

Look at that kid. Awesome.

After the Memphis Grizzlies faithful were forced to suffer through the team blowing a 27-point lead in a devastating 99-98 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 1 of the teams’ quarterfinal series, it is understandable that Grizzlies fans were primed and ready for the team to make up for its colossal meltdown.

Thankfully, the Grizzlies repaid their fans for their faith and patience on Wednesday night, ultimately winning Game 2 105-98 to even up the series. But late in the 4th quarter, before the outcome was fully determined, a slashing layup by Zach Randolph provided one particular young Grizzlies fan the perfect opportunity for an outward expression of cathartic joy.

Video follows.

Ha. Shine on, you crazy diamond.
