Celtics rally in second half, tame the hard-charging Grizzlies


Here are the Stars, Studs and Duds from Boston’s 112-103 win over Memphis:


Kyrie Irving: The points typically come in impressive fashion by Irving, but his decision-making down the stretch was equally impressive. He tallied his seventh double-double, finishing with 26 points and 12 assists.

Mike Conley Jr.: It was another solid night for Conley who came up with some late-game baskets for the Grizzlies. He led all Memphis scorers with 26 points, five rebounds and six assists.


Marcus Morris: He continues to be the second-best player on the Celtics roster, providing some much-needed scoring punch to accompany Kyrie Irving. Morris had 22 points on 7-for-13 shooting.

Al Horford: Big Al came up with a slew of big shots down the stretch, none bigger than the dagger he drained to make it 108-101 with about 30 seconds to play. Horford, who was 5-for-7 on 3’s, finished with 18 points to go with six rebounds.

Dillon Brooks: The Grizzlies led by as many as 19 points and the scoring of Brooks was among the keys to building up that lead. For the game, he had 19 points off the bench including 4-of-5 from 3-point range.


Celtics turnovers: One of the better teams in the NBA when it comes to minimizing turnovers, Boston had an uncharacteristically high number of miscues - 17 - which the Grizzlies turned into 17 points.
