Miami Heat on the Horizon
The Boston Celtics ended their one game home stand with a 10-point thrashing of the Memphis Grizzlies, the second time within a week. Avery Bradley led the Celtics with 23 points while Isiah Thomas Jr added 21 and seven assists.
The Grizzlies made it interesting closing to within four points in the last minute and a half but the Celtics buckled down at the line popping six straight free throws in the final minute of the game.
Tonight’s game is the 412th meeting between the two teams
The Boston Celtics (10-7, 2nd Atlantic Division) and the Detroit Pistons (9-10, 5th Central Division) Franchise are no strangers and the competition between theses two storied franchises dates back to 1957 and the Celtics lead the series 257-154.
But this Celtics squad is not the team it is on the road and, after dropping their last two home games, will look to get their home game squared away tonight. Book makers are putting the onus on the Pistons and have the Celtics as eight point favorites. The last time the two teams met on November 19th the Celtics walked away with a two point 94-92 win.
Team looking to stave off 4th consecutive loss
Seven games into the new 2016-17 season and the Boston Celtics (3-4, 9th Eastern Conference) never imagined that they would be under .500 but under .500 is where they sit.
“It’s frustrating. We’re in a bad funk right now,” Isaiah Thomas Jr. said following the humiliating loss to the one win Washington Wizards. “We’re not the hardest playing team anymore. That’s what made us special, that’s what made us good: us playing harder than the other team. Being scrappier. Getting loose balls. Rebounds don’t come to us because we’re not playing hard.”
