21 minutes in, these are the Celtics first free throws.
Grizzlies shooting 9-16, 2-3 3P. All 21 points from Conley, ZBo, Gasol (9-13). MEM +2 on glass. Celtics shooting 38% (6-16, 2-5 3P)
Gasol and Randolph combined for 13 points over the first six minutes. So, yeah, just what the Celtics probably feared.
5 Celtics players average double figure scoring in points. Green (19), Sullinger (16), Bradley (14.5), Olynyk (12.4), Rondo (10.4)
Celtics 2 inactive Vitor Faveroni & Marcus Smart. Starters: Green, Sullinger, Olynyk, Bradley, Rondo
