Celtics vs. Grizzlies Prediction & Pick
With their elite offense and defense, the Celtics have been the best team in the NBA all season. They enter play on Sunday ranked fifth in scoring and sixth in fewest points allowed, beating opponents on both offense and defense.
The Grizzlies are strong on both ends of the court as well, ranking ninth in scoring and eighth in fewest points allowed. This should be a close, hard-fought game.
The deciding factor will probably be the location, as Boston's been nearly unstoppable at home, going 22-7 at TD Garden. Memphis, on the other hand, has been mediocre on the road (11-16), making this matchup even more daunting for the Grizz.
As the better team with home-court advantage, the Celtics should prevail here.
