Despite battling a stomach bug, the Grizzlies still present a big challenge for the Celtics: on.nba.com/11Di07K http://t.co/s9QSyMmkgt

Brian Robb

Boston's biggest issue this season has been rim protection. Is there any hope for improvement, moving forward? celticshub.com/2014/11/21/tak…

So excited that I got to meet @themagnoliamom from my favorite show, Fixer Upper on @hgtv! Thank you… instagram.com/p/vq-26TTA1c/

Ben Rohrbach

Brad Stevens says defensive improvement starts with him. "I need to be better every single minute of every single game."

Ben Rohrbach

Stevens: "The other thing we have to get better at is executing when game gets turned up a notch and more physical in last 4 minutes."

Ben Rohrbach

Stevens says pick-and-roll defense is improving, but struggles against top guards on p-n-r & in transition. Offense hit its stride vs. PHX.

Ben Rohrbach

Brad Stevens on close losses: "I haven't been overly pleased w/ our defense obviously early on, and the numbers bear that out."

Paul Flannery

Go Terriers. Keep it within 30 RT @smclaughlin9: BU basketball at No. 1 Kentucky tonight. I'm feeling an upset.

It is too early for an NBA flu bug going around Thought we agreed to this in last CBA.

Paul Flannery

Thanks Spencer! RT @celebrityhottub: @Paul Flannery @cjane87 YOU GUYS IT’S 12:30 WE’RE GOING TO MEMPHIS

Jay King

Sounds like the Grizzlies, who have been ravaged by illness, could have just about everybody available tonight

Jay King

Yes he did RT @Jus_Dustin: @Jay King did he actually say that ashy part? That would be hilarious

Marc D'Amico

The next four @CSNNE games are against NBA's best: Grizzlies, Blazers, Bulls & Spurs. @DISH customers, you're boxed out. Call 844-276-4276

Marc D'Amico

Stevens on Marc Gasol: "He can put it on the floor, he can shoot and he's a terrific passer."

Marc D'Amico

With the Grizzlies battling team illness, Celtics personnel is wiping down the basketballs before starting shootaround here at FedEx Forum.

With sickness in MEM, Vince Carter said he walked into gym w/ a mask. He's hiding his hands because they're too ashy from so much washing

Gary Washburn

Courtney Lee says he's a go tonight vs #Celtics. #grizzlies

Marc D'Amico

Bradley on Courtney Lee: "He's one of the guys you can't leave open because he's knocking down the 3 and playing solid basketball."

Marc D'Amico

Sully on the matchup with Marc Gasol in the paint: "It's gonna be a bear fight tonight."

I bet he sleeps in it tonight. RT @ShelleyESPN: Over-under on how long it takes this guy to take his makeup off?? http://t.co/D5JtlwFCLK

Kyle Draper

Hahaha Raiders may have won but those two dudes celebrating at the end took a loss on that play.… instagram.com/p/vph8ddHhTl/

Kristina Leahy

Raiders should do all the celebrating they want! It's not easy to get up week after week when losing SIXTEEN in a row.

Rich Levine

Derek Carr is just going to retire after this one. Go out on top.

Kristina Leahy

How do you lose 4 times to an 0-10 (or worse) team?

Steve Bulpett

Upon further review, Raiders come back on KC... leaving 76ers as only winless team in an active professional sport.

Rich Levine

Raiders are trying so hard to Raiders this game up.

Sean Grande

That might have been the most Raider-y play in the history of the Raiders being the Raiders.

Steve Bulpett

Patriots were looking to extend lead for best AFC record, but Raiders have apparently remembered they are, in fact, the Raiders.

Chris Forsberg

Genuinely curious to see whether Bill Snyder outlasts the entire Lockett family at KState.

Jessica Camerato

¿Hay algunas preguntas en español también?

Jessica Camerato

Have to admit, I'd watch all if I could RT @drewbowman88 what game at home do you have circled on your calendar as s must watch

Jessica Camerato

With Tony Allen on a team, you just never know what can happen RT @Matthew_Haddock what do you think of Memphis this season?

Jessica Camerato

Was surprised by how much Olynyk has improved since last season RT @4sports007 biggest 'surprise' player on Celtics thus far is?!..

Jessica Camerato

Depends on what Cs do with back court. If he plays well could earn more min. elsewhere. RT @Thefourhourgame is Evan Turner here long term?

Jessica Camerato

A lot of veteran teams in the West. Blazers should continue to grow this season. RT @dorpdx Me. Are the Blazers the best in the West?

Jessica Camerato

Clever! RT @CavsGregBR _______ will happen before the Sixers win a game.

Jessica Camerato

Intrigued by them every season. Could be really dangerous if all healthy. RT @ankitdpt what do you think of bulls?

Jessica Camerato

No immediate rush for Young, can benefit from playing time in D-League this season MT @furnsey how does staff view James Young?

Jessica Camerato

Cs will get offers, have to weigh options. Don't want him to walk w/nothing in return MT @0lDirty95 Think Rondo willl be here end of season?

Jessica Camerato

Who's up for an impromptu Twitter chat, tweeps? Starting now ...

Scott Souza

If Oakland beats KC, does that mean the #Patriots still haven't lost to any good teams either?

Paul Flannery

Heat need more championship DNA with a warrior's mentality to hold on to the rope.

Rondo likes the identity he sees the Celtics developing: masslive.com/celtics/index.…

Jay King

Notes: Rondo considers Mike Conley underrated, Rondo's rebounding part of game plan, Stevens happy for Courtney Lee masslive.com/celtics/index.…

Gary Washburn

Rondo:“People still say it’s a rebuilding year for us but we really don’t look at it as that. The East isn’t as strong -- again." #celtics

Chris Forsberg

restless mailbaggers want to tweak lineup + the small Sullinger/Zeller sample is intriguing: (es.pn/14Tqhqv) http://t.co/BokmXFACuu

Gary Washburn

By the way, the Rajon Rondo foul against Monta Ellis late in the Nov. 3 loss to the #mavericks has been upgraded to a Flagrant 1. #celtics

Gary Washburn

Marcus Smart said he's surprised at how quickly he's progress but "i doubt that I'll play Sunday." Nov. 28 is a more feasible date #celtics

Gary Washburn

No surprise NBPA Director Michele Roberts had major issues with Jeffrey Taylor's 24-game suspension. We'll see if Taylor appeals #hornets

Steve Bulpett

Lost in the euphoria of Celtics' win over Philadelphia: They won the opening jump ball, improving to 1-9 for the season.

Celt practice long over, but Dwight Powell and James Young still here being put through full court catch and shoot drills.

Jay King

Hour after practice, most Cs leaving. Stevens at midcourt putting rookies Dwight Powell and James Young through shooting/conditioning drill.

Kyle Draper

Interesting MT @John Schuhmann: Yeah, it's a little early, but Celtics are 3rd best 2-pt shooting team in NBA history. http://t.co/q7ALicNr9H

Jay King

Rondo said he's "sore" after rolling ankle last night. Will be fine though.

Jay King

Rondo called Darren Erman "Baby Thibs." Said he's awesome at scouting reports. Thinks he'll be a head coach in a matter of time.

Jay King

Rondo on Mike Conley: "he doesn't get a lot of the fame or credit he deserves."

Marc D'Amico

Rondo on MEM: "They're as tough as it gets w/ big men. (Darren Erman) was telling us they're like a football team." http://t.co/W971lWdLpj

Jay King

What percentage is Marcus Smart? "It's low." Said the ankle does feel better though.

Marc D'Amico

Smart on ankle rehab: "One day my body feels good, one day it doesn't. I'm trying to get the range of motion back." http://t.co/vKBHzjHxOu

Steve Bulpett

Marcus Smart did a bit of straight line running today. Still looking at next week for possible return.

Jay King

Brad Stevens said he's happy for Courtney Lee that he's found a nice role in a nice situation.

Marc D'Amico

Stevens on Memphis: "They're very deep. Last night, 5 guys were sick & they're (still) playing very well. Gasol & Randolph are go-to guys."

Tom Halzack

Why Rajon Rondo is a very special player: league-leading 11.6 assists per game, 10.6 points and 8.4 rebounds. The rebound number kills me.

Tom Halzack

Reason Rondo to stay: $27 million MORE (and 1 more year) on a max contract from Celtics than elsewhere. - Howard Beck bleacherreport.com/articles/22728…
