Lackluster Celtics 'totally annihilated' by Grizzlies


By Couper Moorhead, for NBA.com

BOSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Boston Celtics lost at home again, getting walloped by the Memphis Grizzlies, 111-91, in a game where there was, literally, not a single positive thing to say about the home team.

"'[There are] two minutes left in the game,'" Doc Rivers said of the announcement over the loud speakers. "That was the only good message in the game."

No strangers to faulty performances on their own court, with 12 losses at TD Garden, the Celtics have, in the past, at least made a run of things after falling into a hole. This time, though, as they found themselves down by 22 at the half, they couldn't muster more than a half-hearted effort that cut the lead to 14 after a pair of Memphis turnovers in the third.

"We didn't have the fight to fight through that," Rivers said. "It hurts us when you give them spirit."

They gave the Grizzlies spirit by shooting 25 percent in the first quarter, scoring 12 points. They scored 33 points in the entire first half. They failed to box out, even with rebounders within arm's reach. They failed to get back in transition, allowing 19 fast-break points. They were outrebounded by 19 and, worst of all, gave up 48 points in the paint, even with the Grizzlies missing several bunnies at the rim.

"I'm not gonna sit up here and try to make excuses for anything," Kevin Garnett said. "We gotta play better, especially at home. This is where we make our mark and this is where we supposedly lay our heads, and we gotta protect it like that."

With no more explanations than excuses on hand, there's not much more to say about the Celtics. They will continue to be the bigger story -- the contender that continues to stomp on its own feet -- but the Grizzlies were nothing short of remarkable in their surgical dismantling of the Celtics.

"They came in and totally annihilated us," Garnett said. "Nothing to it."

The Grizzlies, with skilled big men and versatile, athletic wing players, have the makeup of the prototypical nightmare for the 2010 Celtics. There aren't many worse matchups for Boston. And to their credit, they made the most of every advantage they had, torturing the Celtics with active hands on the boards, patient ball movement and a relentless pace.

"Our offense really kept them off balance," Memphis point guard Mike Conley said. "We were pushing it so much, every time they'd score we were coming right back at them ... trying to wear them down until the end of the game."

The way things looked, they had them worn down midway through the first quarter. And unlike the Wizards, who led the Celtics on Sunday before choking away the lead in the fourth quarter, the Grizzlies stayed true to the plan that got them a lead as big as 29.

"It wasn't really about them, it was more about us," Rudy Gay said. "It was more about how we needed to continue to play like us."

Getting 20 combined rebounds from their starting big men and 34 points off the bench, the Grizzlies received solid production across the board. But Gay was the star, scoring 28 on 18 shots while proving unguardable for anyone the Celtics threw out there.

Not that the Celtics, who continue to say the right things after repetitive losses, threw out anyone playing much defense in the first place. Slowly, Garnett is looking more and more frustrated as he fields postgame questions, his answers becoming more stern, his cliches becoming more and more forced.

"We're gonna take this one game at a time," Garnett said. "We're not looking down to May and April right now. We need to be taking care of March. That's the mindset, so whatever we gotta do, we gotta do it soon and do it immediately."
