Grizzlies limp into Boston to face thriving Celtics

http://www.espn.com/nba/preview?gameId=400975644

BOSTON -- To say the numbers are against the Memphis Grizzlies Monday night at TD Garden would be an understatement.

Besides having to face one of the best teams in the league -- the Boston Celtics coming out of their prolonged All-Star break with two road wins -- the Grizzlies have lost nine games in a row to fall to 18-40. They have dropped nine straight on the road -- and are 0-9 this year against the Eastern Conference on the road this season.

They lost Friday, at home, and Saturday, on the road, against the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat by a combined 49 points and are 5-22 on the road this season.

Oh, and they have lost five straight games to the Celtics, falling each of the last three seasons in Boston.

To make things tougher, top scorer Tyreke Evans, who was not supposed to still be with the team after the trade deadline, was slated for an MRI Sunday on his ribs. He is listed as day-to-day and coach J.B. Bickerstaff said he didn't anticipate a long absence for Evans, averaging 19.4 points per game.

In addition, Chandler Parsons missed Saturday night's game in Miami with an illness and is questionable for Monday. In all, the Grizzlies were missing five players in Miami.

Andrew Harrison, who led the Grizzlies with 17 points Saturday, said after the game, "We didn't stick together again, started getting frustrated, started trying to come back all on one play, started trying to come back on our own. It was everybody."

Center Marc Gasol sat out Saturday to rest but will play Monday, when the Grizzlies have to deal with the Celtics (42-19). He had 30 points and 10 rebounds in a 102-93 loss to Boston in Memphis Dec. 16.

The Celtics, who lost three straight before the break, got the injured Marcus Smart back Friday night in Detroit against the Pistons, and his defense and spirit paid off immediately. Boston hosts Memphis and the Charlotte Hornets before a Saturday night national ABC game in Houston against the Rockets.

Saturday night's win over the Knicks in New York left the Celtics a half-game behind the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference.

Smart, who was out after lacerating his right hand smacking a picture frame in a Los Angeles hotel, provides needed defense and depth for his team.

After scoring 31 points Saturday night, Kyrie Irving, asked if the Celtics look better defensively, said, "Well, yeah. It's just the appreciation of Marcus Smart there."

Irving took Saturday night's game over in the third quarter, scoring 11 points as his team pulled ahead against the scrappy and running Knicks. He also had nine rebounds and eight assists.

The win came in the second NBA start for rookie Daniel Theis. A night after he scored a career-high 19 points and grabbed seven rebounds off the bench in Detroit (on the same day his native Germany upset Canada in hockey at the Olympics), he started for the injured Aron Baynes (elbow) and had six points and seven rebounds in 18:13.

Rookie Jayson Tatum scored 19 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and Irving posted 20 points and six assists in Boston's win at Memphis in December.

Evening gents!

Rosalie is at the game tonight. I’m guessing she will be heckling the refs and the Grizzlies bigtime. My prediction for tonight is she will be escorted out of the Garden before the end of the third period.

Go get em Ros!

Hi Bob! Man, and I thought I was a big Celtic fan but Rosalie can't even see me in her rear view mirror.

I am checking in and ready to watch. On paper, this should be one of the easier games. With Rosalie at the game, I am expecting more posting minutes from Bobc33.

I'm a little worried about Tommy. He is missing a lot of games lately.

There is supposed to be more contrast between the colors. I miss the old days when you knew which team was the home team by the white uniforms.

Good handle from Jaylen.

Yeah, the colors are too similar. Maybe watch by sneakers or scratch that, Jaylen isn't wearing the pink ones today.

Jaylen off to another hot start. Now he has to learn how to keep going for the next 3 quarters. He seems to disappear for stretches.

Baynes is a big part of the team identity. I like him starting. I accept his motor only allows for around 15-20 minutes.

There will probably be a minutes restriction for yourself and Baynes, but you are next man up.

Jaylen's next leap is to be more like an all-star than Jeff Green. He is on his way.
