Jared Sullinger, who was hospitalized with a skin infection Monday, will suit up for the Celtics tonight against the Grizzlies. Kelly Olynyk, who Brad Stevens called "50/50" yesterday, will not:

Memphis will be without their three best players this evening, Marc Gasol, Mike Conley and Zach Randolph. That didn't stop the Grizz from winning in Cleveland on Monday though.
The Celtics have two exciting streaks going at the moment to keep an eye on:
1. Boston has won 13 straight at the TD Garden, a 14th consecutive victory tonight would set a new building record. The 2008-09 C's also won 13 in a row at home, before that the 1990-91 squad put together a run of 18 straight in the old Boston Garden.
2. Isaiah Thomas has played 101 minutes without committing a turnover. He's turnover-free for the month of March so far, spanning the Celtics' last three contests. In the last 32+ seasons, only Thomas and Michael Jordan have scored 27 or more points in three consecutive NBA games with zero turnovers.
