Celtics keep Grizzlies from clinching spot in play-in series

LAKE BUENA VISTA (AP) Jayson Tatum scored 29 points and the Boston Celtics ran past Memphis 122-107 on Tuesday, putting the Grizzlies in further danger of missing the playoffs.

The Grizzlies missed another chance to guarantee themselves a spot in the Western Conference play-in series, and fell out of eighth place after Portland beat Dallas later Tuesday.

Boston (48-23), which has already locked up the Eastern Conference's third seed, won its fourth straight.
