It's a matchup billed as the Best against the Worst as far as NBA Divisions are concerned...
No doubt the Best is the Boston Celtics..
The Memphis Grizzlies are last in the Southwest Division..
But, the Grizzlies don't have the worst record in the League..
That and a Buck 50 will buy them a cup of coffee in Boston..
The Celtics come in on a record winning pace at 27-and-3...
Grizzlies get off to a hot start Friday Night and stay hot for most of the ballgame.
Mike Miller drilling them from outside..5 of his first 5 go down, including a couple of 3's and driving layups.
16-points for Miller before fouling out late.
The Grizz also get another outstanding effort at the point from Rookie Mike Conley.
Conley showing improved shooting from range...'
Plus deft ball handling, whether in the open court, or on set plays... He splits the double team here for the nice hoop. 10-points, 4-assists for Conley.
Memphis does a good job hanging with Bostons' Big 3 Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen..
Only 2-points for Ray....
But TONY ALLEN comes off the bench to score 20 for the Celtics...and that hurt..
What Hurt worse..Rudy Gay gets one of his teeth knocked out on an errant Elbow from former Grizzly James Posey..
21-points minus a tooth for Rudy..
Mike Miller hits his 1,000th 3-pointer...becoming the 43rd NBA player to do so.
