Big Baby, Celtics Blow By Grizzlies in Second Half

The Celtics were in a close game with the Grizzlies as the first half ended, which should never happen. But, by the game’s final buzzer, the C’s had blown away the Grizz thanks to a career-high 24 points on 8-11 shooting from Glen “Big Baby” Davis in a 105-87 win.

Davis made up for a limited Kevin Garnett (10 points in 17 minutes) and an ineffective Paul Pierce (six points, six rebounds). Ray Allen pitched in too, finishing with 20 points and six assists, and Rajon Rondo finished with nine points, seven rebounds, and 10 assists for the Celtics, who are still 4.5 games behind the Cavs for the best record in the Eastern Conference.

“Teams don’t look at me as a serious option,” Davis said. “But the more I get experience, and the more and more I get put in game situations, it will happen.”

Eddie House had a nice game off the bench with 15 points to help the Celts to their third straight win and fifth overall against Memphis.

Hakim Warrick finished with a team-high 20 points for the Grizzlies. Rudy Gay finished with 15 points while O.J. Mayo and Mike Conley each had 12.

The Celts have Sunday off before taking on the Clippers Monday night in another winnable game.
