Wednesday, December 30, the Memphis Grizzlies play the Boston Celtics. Last season, the squads played twice with Boston winning both. In fact, the last time the Grizzlies beat the Celtics was January 2016.
As such, the Celtics hold the all-time record having won 30 matches of the 48 contests played.
Although the Grizzlies had battled in two games to start the season they still were seeking a victory. That it came versus Brooklyn wasn’t that surprising given the Nets rested both Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving plus lost Spencer Dinwiddie to a partially torn ACL.

The surprising part of the win was the Grizzlies did it without the services of their star point guard Ja Morant, who they lost in the first half to a brutal ankle sprain.
Morant was taken from the court in a wheelchair and left the arena in a walking boot. It is reportedly a grade 2 sprain which will keep him out of the lineup for three to five weeks.
The win required overtime with Kyle Anderson leading scoring for Memphis with a career-high 28 points. Dillon Brooks delivered 24 points, Brandon Clarke chipped in 16 while Jonas Valanciunas registered a double-double of 14 points and 14 rebounds.
De’Anthony Melton (COVID-19 contract tracing) Killian Tillian (hamstring), Jontay Porter (knee), Jaren Jackson (knee), and Justise Winslow (hip) are all questionable for Monday. Morant (ankle) and Xavier Tillman (knee) are out indefinitely.
The Celtics got back to .500 with a strong effort Tuesday night and a friendly whistle. In a match where the Pacers and Celtics each scored 54 points in the paint, oddly the Celtics got 37 free throws while the Pacers got 16.
That turned out to be the difference as the Celtics beat Indy 116-111.
Jayson Tatum led the way with a double-double of 27 points and 11 rebounds along with four assists and three steals.
Tristan Thompson also produced a double-double of 14 points and 10 rebounds. Jaylen Brown (20), Marcus Smart (17), and Payton Pritchard (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Tacko Fall (eye) has missed the last four games and is questionable for Wednesday. Kemba Walker (knee) and Romeo Langford (wrist) are out indefinitely.

Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
Without Jaren Jackson or Ja Morant, it makes for a steep hill to climb. Although it’s early in the season the fact Morant could be lost for over a month during the easiest segment of Memphis schedule could determine the Grizzlies season in the first few weeks of the season, unfortunately.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Celtics ATS
The Celtics are missing Walker but have their two stars to fill the void. Moreover, if Boston keeps getting double the free throw attempts of their opponents it bodes well for the Bean Town crew to amass easy wins.
