Memphis Grizzlies vs. Boston Celtics 1/2/13: Video Highlights and Recap

Tim KeeneyContributor IJanuary 2, 2013

The Boston Celtics are going downhill. Fast. 

With a 93-83 home loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night, the C's have now lost four straight and eight of their last 10. They are just 14-17 overall and 9-6 at home.

The return of Avery Bradley did signify a bright spot for Boston, but the third-year man wasn't able to do much in limited action as the Grizzlies put together a big second quarter and never really looked back. 

Point guard Mike Conley scored 25 to lead the way for Memphis, which is now 20-9 on the year.

Player of the Game: Mike Conley

Conley was virtually unstoppable.

Not only did he rack up 23 points on just 15 field-goal attempts, but he distributed the ball well (nine assists), played his patented sticky defense (one steal) and turned the ball over just once.

In a battle of point guards, it was Conley who came out on top against Rajon Rondo, who tallied just 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting to go with 10 assists and three giveaways. 


Up Next for Memphis

The Grizzlies get a day off to travel back home where they will take on the Portland Trailblazers on Friday night. 


Up Next for Boston

Boston will look to stop the bleeding when it hosts the Indiana Pacers, winners of six of their last seven, on Friday night.
