Memphis Grizzlies vs Boston Celtic Prediction for Nov. 7

The Grizzlies, having a tough time dispatching a Washington Wizards team missing their best player last night, will be facing an incredibly disciplined Celtics team.

The Grizzlies aren’t sure yet if they’ll have big man Steven Adams, who injured his foot or ankle during the Wizards game. He managed to only miss a quarter and a half and re-entered the game about halfway through the fourth quarter to help preserve a Memphis Grizzlies win.

Memphis fell apart on defense after Adams’ injury last night and struggled to connect from the three-point line. The Celtics are the best scoring team in the NBA this season and are fresh off knocking down a franchise-best 27 three-point shots Saturday night against the Knicks.

The Grizzlies have played in one back-to-back already this season, losing and losing badly in the second game. They defeated Houston 129-122 on Oct. 21, then lost to Dallas 132-96 the following night.

If history repeats itself tonight, the Grizzlies are in for a long night. Fortunately, the Memphis Grizzlies are 4-0 at home this season and should have a lot of help from a huge home crowd. But, in the end, this Celtics team is too hard of a matchup for the Grizzlies coming off a back-to-back. Expect the Grizzlies to lose out in a close one.

Prediction: Boston 124, Memphis 117
