The Celtics look to close out their road trip against a Grizzlies team
that is playing very well. Memphis is 12-3 since the All Star break
with all 3 losses coming on the road. They have also won 16 of 21 since
the trade that brought Tayshaun Prince to Memphis for Rudy Gay. The
Grizzlies beat the Celtics 93-83 in January at the Garden.
was before the Grizzlies' big trade and it was also Avery Bradley's
first game back from his shoulder injury. The Celtics also had both
Rondo and Sully and so both teams are considerably different since their
first meeting. Both teams are also in the heat of the playoff race.
Celtics are still in 7th half a game behind Chicago in 6th and 1.5

Jason Terry is confident that the Celtics will meet the Heat in the playoffs and that there will be "fireworks." He had more to say.
Uh oh. We have been here before, and quite frankly it makes me want to crawl under a rock and hide from the light of day. This news came out today via the Boston Globe in regards to Kevin Garnett:Coach Doc Rivers was unsure when Garnett sustained the injury. Garnett missed two games because of a strained left adductor muscle and the flu, but returned for two games, combining...
I was very surprised to see how few Grizzlies fans were posting on the boards. Maybe some of the usual posters were at the game but given the fact that there were also plenty of Celtics fans at the game and how successful the Grizz have been, you would think there would be more fans posting. I had to laugh at the reaction to Tony's foul on the 3 at the end. I recall so...
There obviously has not been much to cheer about this week for Celtics fans. But last night, we got to see yet another vicious throw down by one of the C’s. This time, it was Avery Bradley. Check out his flush on Memphis’ Ed Davis in video, GIF & picture format. Photos courtesy of HoopChina.
We already knew that there was a good chance Courtney Lee would be out tonight, but now we find out KG is also hurt. From the Celtics’ official Twitter:
Kevin Garnett and Courtney Lee are both out tonight with sprained left ankles.

No word on how KG hurt his ankle. Multiple media reporting he will have an MRI back in Boston on Monday...
Former Celtics' guard Ray Williams has died at age 58. He was a combo guard brought on board to help with the Celtics' depth in 1985.
You can find out more on what Ray was up to here.
Our condolences go out to the Williams' family from everyone at Celticslife.
Tonight's 110-106 loss to the Grizzlies was filled with ups and downs. The Celtics got off to nice start, but slipped in the second and third quarters. Their fourth quarter contained a rally that didn't start until about the 6:00 mark. Had it started earlier, they definitely would've won. But it didn't. What's done is done.
Tonight's USOTN easily goes to...
Just a few random thoughts for tonight's post game wrap up. First, KG's injury is troubling. He didn't seem to injure the foot in the game but they said he was walking gingerly afterwards. It is being described as a foot injury rather than an ankle injury. And the fact that they are going to take an MRI makes it even more worrisome. I remember back in that...

After knocking off #2 seed Georgetown 78-68 on Friday, the Eagles of Florida Gulf Coast University just beat seventh seeded San Diego State (81-71) to become the first #15 seed in the history of the NCAA Tournament to reach the Sweet Sixteen.

The Memphis Grizzlies have done a great job taking care of their home court, but the road has been the problem lately.
For the Washington Wizards, home has been where they've enjoyed their most success.
The Grizzlies will try to avoid their first four-game skid outside Memphis in two seasons on Monday night when the Wizards - making a brief stop back in the nation's capital...
