Live prime time NBA on Sky Sports: Memphis Grizzlies @ Boston Celtics | NBA News

This Sunday’s prime time game sees the Memphis Grizzlies try their hand at the injury-laden Boston Celtics, live on Sky Sports Arena from a UK-friendly tip-off time of 7pm.

The Boston Celtics and the Memphis Grizzlies lock horns in a cross-conference clash as part of Sky Sports’ live, prime time fixture in the 7pm Sunday evening slot.

After Ja Morant’s infamous “I’m fine in the West” statement, his team have slipped down the standings, currently 2-8 in their last 10 games, with the Sacramento Kings breathing down their necks. They’ve also had to deal with the inconsistent absences of their most prolific defensive players, perhaps one of the biggest reasons behind their recent freefall.

Fortunately for them, the Celts aren’t doing so great themselves, as evident in last Friday’s 94-106 defeat to the Phoenix Suns.

Of course, the injury complications don’t help. Having no Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown for a stretch of games, while Al Horford, Marcus Smart and Danilo Gallinari also on the side-lines have been their biggest problems to date.

In saying that, they were able to hold on against the Detroit Pistons and did well of passing over the Brooklyn Nets, who have now traded Kyrie Irving, and are in the process of doing so with Kevin Durant.

This particular weekend’s matchup provides both with the opportunity to make a statement ahead of the All-Star competition, and heading into the tail end of the regular season.

When fit, Boston’s frontcourt are averaging a combined 57.9 points, 15.8 rebounds, and 7.6 assists per game. Should they return against the Grizzlies, they will provide Jaren Jackson Jr. with a stacked workload to manage.

The only way of possibly pushing back relies on Morant’s availability while Dillon Brooks carries out the rest of his suspension. They’ll also need some good news surrounding Steven Adam’s possible return.

If you want to catch all this drama and suspense live, you’re in the right place. Sky Sports will be live streaming the game on their You Tube channel.

…and it will also be ready to watch on Sky Sports Arena.
