NBA, Celtics Twitter react to Boston’s 109-106 squeaker over Memphis Grizzlies

The Boston Celtics made the trip to FedEx Forum to face the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night, and came away with a hard-fought victory they came quite close to losing against a banged-up Grizzlies squad sans several key frontcourt players.

A tight game throughout, the Celtics pulled away in the fourth quarter as star wings Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum came alive to secure a 109-106 win on the road despite several attempts by Memphis to wrest victory from the jaws of defeat. The game’s final frame was quite the epic nail-biter, and the result sure to fuel an even more intense rematch between the two rising powers when the Griz make the trip to TD Garden in February.

Let’s take a look at what NBA and Celtics Twitter had to say about Boston’s photo finish over Memphis.
