FINAL SCORE: Boston Celtics 122, Memphis Grizzlies 107

IN BRIEF: The Celtics cruised to their fourth straight win inside the NBA bubble Tuesday night with an impressive showing against the Memphis Grizzlies. The C's led the entire way and pulled away late in their penultimate seeding game.

Boston had six players score in double figures, led by Jayson Tatum's 29 points on 10-for-13 shooting (4-for-5 from 3-point range). Gordon Hayward and Kemba Walker each added 19 points for the C's. 

Memphis point guard and likely Rookie of the Year Award winner Ja Morant led his team with 26 points versus the Celtics.

The Grizzlies are now in a four-way tie for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference, and they are in danger of falling out of the playoff picture altogether depending on how the final seeding games in the West turn out.
