Video: Boston Celtics 109, Memphis Grizzlies 106 highlights
Here is the Celtics box score and extended full game highlights from Boston's win over the Grizzlies Monday night in Memphis. It's the Celtics third straight win, which improves their record to 7-3.
Ja Morant was as good as advertised finishing with a near triple double of 30/8/9, but Jayson Tatum poured in 39 points to lead the Celtics to victory. Marcus Smart added 15 points, 7 rebounds, and an impressive 12 assists in the win.
Joe Mazzulla continued to go small and the Celtics guard threesome of Smart, Jaylen Brown, and Malcolm Brogdon picked up the slack on the boards with 26 rebounds amongst them. Not sure when, if ever, I've seen 3 Celtics guards get that many combined rebounds. The Celtics will now head back home to host the Pistons on Wednesday.
