After losing a few winnable games to bad teams, the Celtics will play an actual good team tonight when they visit the Grizzlies. This Boston team has just looked terrible recently. A win tonight would definitely give them some much-needed momentum. Let's hope they get it. Here are tonight's five things: 5. STOP LETTING BRADLEY SHOOT: In Dallas, Avery Bradley shot just 4/12 from the field. I don't know why they keep giving him shots. He clearly can't shoot they way he once could. Please stop giving him 10+ shots a game. 4. BETTER 3-POINT SHOOTING: Last night, the Celtics shot a horrible, 5/17 from three-point land. This is really bad. If they could've made a few more of those open shots, they would've easily won. Practice this in shootaround. 3. KEEP GETTING BASS INVOLVED: Finally, Brandon Bass is coming out of his shell and playing very well for the Celtics. Last night, he scored a team-high 16 points on 4/9 shooting and 8/8 free throw shooting. Keep this up. 2. GET TERRY MORE THREES: If there's one thing that Jason Terry is actually good at, it's three-point shooting. But in his return to Dallas, he only got two threes, missing both of them. Give him more or just don't play him. 1. TRY TO FOUL LESS: This one's gonna be really hard to do, because most fouls are accidental. But if you can, attempt to foul less. In Dallas, the C's fouled 26 times. They need to lower that number. Tip-off for tonight's game will be at 8:00 pm ET. You can see it on CSN-NE.

Recap: Celtics’ road woes continue

It looked like maybe the Celtics would somewhat salvage this road trip tonight when they started the game on a 12-2 run. Unfortunately, it was not to be. An undermanned and visibly frustrated C’s team was no match for the Grizzlies. Memphis dominated this game on all levels tonight: rebounding, scoring in the paint, second-chance points, you get the picture. Boston goes 0-3 on...
