Celtics-Grizzlies: In the Bonus
In the Bonus
Before tonight's game between the Celtics and the Grizzlies, check out our statistical breakdown of the matchup.
Grizz defending the three
The Boston Celtics may have found the perfect elixir to remedy their woeful 3-point shooting this season. The Grizzlies, one of the better defensive teams a year ago, were No. 2 in the league when it came to defending the 3-point shot. This year? They have slid all the way down to No. 26.
CELTICS FAST-BREAK DEFENSE
One of the strengths of the Celtics this season has been their transition defense where opponents have scored a league-low 1.48 points per fast break attempt.
CONLEY'S CHANGING APPROACH
Mike Conley is a 20 points per game scorer this season, courtesy of him looking to shoot jumpers instead of relying so heavily on lay-ups for his offense.
Vitor Faverani has been more than just an effective scorer around the basket for the Boston Celtics. He's actually one of the best finishers in the NBA.
