The Boston Celtics and the Memphis Grizzlies will both be trying to pick up a win on Saturday when they battle at FedExForum.

ABOUT THE CELTICS (24-7): Among the indicators that Boston lacked fight Friday night was the final result in the rebounding department, as Utah finished with a commanding 55-31 advantage despite losing center Rudy Gobert and forward Derrick Favors to early injuries. The Celtics had a season-low two offensive boards – one by the starting five. Irving has 33 points in back-to-back games and owns four 30-point efforts in his last six outings.

ABOUT THE GRIZZLIES (9-20): Memphis trailed by seven at halftime, committed 22 turnovers and made 12-of-17 free throws Friday, but in a season that has seen losses pile up it had a rare opportunity to survive a slugfest. “Moral victories only go so far and the guys need to be rewarded,” interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff told reporters. “. … That’s a resilient bunch in that locker room. Things weren’t going perfect for us, we had 22 turnovers, we didn’t play the cleanest of games but there was grit to it and it was ugly and we found a way to pull it out.” Tyreke Evans led the way with 22 points while hitting 4-of-5 3-pointers after missing one game with a hip injury.

Oddsmakers opened the Celtics as -5-point favorites versus the Grizzlies, while the game’s total opened at 196.5.

Kyrie Irving and Al Horford have been the catalysts for the Boston Celtics’ strong start, but they’ll need to find some more support when the team begins a two-game road trip at the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday. Irving and Horford combined for 54 points while the other three starters went a collective 5-for-18 from the floor, and Boston shot 40.7 percent overall in Friday’s 107-95 home loss against Utah.

Rookie Jayson Tatum was held to seven points and he has 11 total on 2-of-13 shooting over the Celtics’ last two losses. Boston has not dropped two in a row since opening the season 0-2, but it is 2-3 since a 22-2 run and some bad habits may be developing. “I’m concerned with our lack of intensity when things don’t go our way,” coach Brad Stevens told reporters Friday. The Grizzlies snapped a five-game losing streak with a 96-94 victory over Atlanta on Friday, making 12-of-25 3-pointers to improve to 1-6 at home against the Eastern Conference.

Memphis won its last outing, a 96-94 result against the Hawks on December 15. The Grizzlies failed to cover in that game as a -6.5-point favorite, while the 190 combined points took the game UNDER the total.

In their last action, Boston was a 107-95 loser at home against the Jazz. They failed to cover the -4.5-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (202) was profitable news for OVER bettors.
