The Memphis Grizzlies and the Boston Celtics duke it out at the TD Garden on Sunday night. Here’s a Grizzlies vs Celtics Prediction.

Memphis Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies have been in a funk as they've lost six of their last nine games overall and they will be hoping to snap a four-game slide after getting routed by the Warriors in a 121-101 loss on Friday. Jaren Jackson Jr led the team with 27 points, Jacob Gilyard and David Roddy each scored 16 points while Vince Williams chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the Grizzlies shot just 40 percent from the field and 14 of 46 from the 3-point line as they struggled to make their open shots early and just couldn't contain the Warriors who shot over 55 percent from the field as a team. John Konchar had a rough game as he scored just three points on one of seven shooting while Santi Aldama scored just two points on one of eight shooting. The Grizzlies will face the Knicks, Bulls, and Hornets after this game.

Boston Celtics

Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics have been in great shape as they've won eight of their last 11 games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back here after getting beaten by the shorthanded Lakers in a disappointing 114-105 home loss on Thursday. Jayson Tatum led the team with 23 points while Kristaps Porzingis and Sam Hauser each scored 17 points, but no other player finished in double figures in scoring. As a team, the Celtics shot just 42 percent from the field and 16 of 48 from the 3-point line as they failed to match the intensity of the Lakers from the start and quickly found themselves trailing by 16 points before they even got out of second gear. The Celtics made a run in the second half, but they couldn't get back within six points despite their best efforts. The Celtics will play against the Hawks and Wizards after this one.

Boston Celtics Player Facts

  • Kristaps Porzingis is one of only four qualified players in the league averaging at least 1.5 threes and 1.5 blocks this season.
  • Jayson Tatum ranks 2nd amongst qualified Guards for rebounds per game (8.4) this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Celtics rank 1st in the league for point differential per game this season (+9.0).
  • The Celtics rank 1st in the league for rebounds per game this season (47.3).
  • The Grizzlies rank 30th in the league for points per game this season (107.2).
  • The Grizzlies rank 30th in the league for opponent blocks per game this season (6.6).

Grizzlies vs Celtics Prediction

The Grizzlies are still severely shorthanded with Ziaire Williams, Jaren Jackson Jr, Desmond Bane and Ja Morant all out, while the Celtics are keeping an eye on Jaylen Brown who is questionable due to lower back tightness. The Grizzlies have been dealing with injuries all season, but things have never been worse with Jackson Jr now joining the injury list. The Celtics could be a little banged up themselves, but they were on fire before their last start loss to the Lakers, so I expect them to bounce back and win this one with ease at home.
