Celtics/Grizzlies Game Preview


Celtics (40-22) vs Grizzlies (33-31)

Game time:  7:30pm, TD Garden. TV – CSN. Radio – WEEI-AM (850).

Team Leaders

Bos: Pierce – 17.6                  Grizzlies: Zach Randolph – 20.8 

Bos: Perkins – 7.7                  Grizzlies: Randolph – 11.8

Bos: Rondo – 9.8                    Grizzlies: Mike Conley – 5.2

Who'll go off:  The offense. The Celtics are averaging 85 points the past two games. Memphis (23rd) gives up 102.8 ppg. We should see triple-digits tonight. The Celts second unit should feast on the Grizzlies thin bench.

Who needs to be stopped:  Rudy Gay. Paul Pierce will have his hands full guarding this high-flyer.

The C's will lose if…  Memphis is the 2nd best offensive rebounding team in the league and top 10 in overall rebounding. Add that to the fact the Cs are coming off a tough game in Milwaukee and I'm concerned the Celtics will look tired and old tonight.

Miscellaneous:  Zach Randolph (back) is questionable. Ronnie Brewer (hamstring), Steven Hunter (knee) are out. Lester Hudson is on D-League assignment. Hasheem Thabeet was recalled from the D-League on Monday. The Grizzlies have won 6 straight games on the road. Boston beat Memphis 110-105 on Dec. 15.

Prediction: Celtics 104 – Grizzlies 96

    Are people still holding out hope? This team is painful to watch on offense. We cannot score. They spend so much damn time bitching about defense that they probably haven’t gone over any offensive sets in months. It’s pathetic to watch them try and score

    Well this doesn’t look good

    This season is a microcosm of how I treated this game. When I first saw Perk tonight feelings came out blazing and I jizzed myself, but that proved to be premature by halftime. It’s similar to how the Celtics came out 23-5 but excitement was premature. Well, fortunately I can jizz again over Perk at the end of the game, and similarly the Celtics can come bk and win this game and come bk in the season and win a title!
