Game 23/66: Grizzlies (12-11) @ Celtics (12-10)


Memphis at Boston
TD Garden
12:00 PM

Offensive Efficiency

Memphis: 101.2 points/100 possessions (21st)
Boston: 101.8 points/100 possessions (19th)

Defensive Efficiency

Memphis: 99.8 points allowed/100 possessions (8th)
Boston: 98.0 points allowed/100 possessions (3rd)

Probable Memphis starters: Mike Conley, Tony Allen, Rudy Gay, Maurice Speights Marc Gasol

View from opposing bench: 3 Shades of Blue

Injury Report: Marquis Daniels (ankle) is out. Keyon Dooling (hip) and Jermaine O’Neal (knee) are game-time decisions. Brandon Bass will start if O’Neal can’t go.

The Grizz have dropped five of seven overall, including a meltdown Friday night against the Thunder. I caught up with the boys at ESPNBoston for a quick 3-on-3 for today’s matinee for a quick take on all things Memphis. You can check out the full piece by clicking HERE

1. What’s the biggest concern for Memphis?
Health combined with a competitive Western Conference. The talent is clearly there, but a solid playoff seed will be tough to manage with Zach Randolph sidelined a couple more weeks and so many teams playing well around them. Like we saw last year though, this will be a team to watch when they get healthy.

2. Do C’s still miss TA?
Without a doubt. Allen has continued to improve on both ends of the floor since he left Boston, providing the defensive energy and, surprisingly, now some consistent offense (averaging 10 points per game; 17.3 over in his last three games). Given the fact the C’s would have likely retained Allen had they forked over an extra year or a couple extra million dollars, it still has to be a bit upsetting to C’s fans.

3. Prediction for both games Sunday?
Same score for both games? Wait, that won’t work. Let’s go for a Boston sweep though. C’s, 87-85 in a defensive “thriller,” and Pats get revenge, 23-20.

    Wilcox = All-Star reserve

    • CelticsBIG3

      I'll give you back that thumbs up. Wilcox is kicking ass.

    • LACelticsFan

      This is the Wilcox I thought we were getting, aggressive and athletic, but no all star, wishful thinking I can get with. lol

      • CelticsBIG3

        obviously not an all star but he's giving this group something i never remember them having… offensive rebounding

        • IBleedGreen

          Wilcox plus+22 so far in the game…just saying

  • LACelticsFan

    What you think of JJ getting in the 1st quarter? That is very encouraging right.

    • CelticsBIG3

      JJJ looks good out there.

  • ElRoz

    the big three is 2-14 from the field….dragging the team down…Rondo already has quite a few turnovers…..the starters are not making it so far….

    • LACelticsFan

      yeah they are not getting it done in 1st half 6-20, with ray going 1-7, but they get the bulk of the shots so they can only start putting them down in the second half. Rondo only 3 to's to 10 assists.

  • Anthony

    Is Brandon Bass injured? Why is he not in the game?

    • CelticsBIG3

      sore knee

  • I_Love_Green

    Really nice to see JaJaun get some playing time earlier in the game. Doing alright out there.

  • I_Love_Green

    What a beautiful 4th quarter. Nice to see the guys close the game out.

  • ripsonics

    Glad that they won by so much considering they didn't have Big Z.

    I am interested to see how they do against Philly/Miami/Chicago – we are definitely around the corner, playing well.

    LOVE KG shooting the three. But he better not shoot more than 3 a game. WORD.

    Go C's
