The Celtics put forth a listless effort in a 93-83 loss to Memphis in early January. Mike Conley and Tony Allen torched the Celtics for a combined 38 points.
How we see it goin’ down
The Grizzlies dominate at home. They’ve won 9 straight at FedEx Forum. Before you pencil in a 20-point blowout, know the Celtics have won 5 straight in Memphis.
With Marc Gasol and Z-Bo, Memphis is capable of inflicting a lot of damage on the boards. Before you concede the glass, know the lowly Hornets out-rebounded Memphis by 16 last night. (So you’re saying there’s a chance)
The Grizzlies are a suffocating defensive team (2nd in defensive efficiency, 1st in opponents ppg). If Courtney Lee can’t go (ankle), we might see more of Jordan Crawford and his crazy shooting.
All signs point to a Grizzlies blowout. But I’m going with Boston.
Call me crazy.
