Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics rallied past the Grizzlies (122-107) and put Memphis’ playoff chances at risk.

Tatum posted a game-high 29 points (10/13 shooting) and six rebounds, helping the Celtics improve to 48-23.

On the other hand, the Grizzlies dropped to 33-39 and are tied with the Portland Trail Blazers, the Phoenix Suns and the San Antonio Spurs for the eighth place in the West.

Ja Morant had 26 points and 13 assists for Memphis, which has won only once in the Orlando “bubble” (1-6).
