Kyrie Irving helps Celtics pull away to beat Grizzlies

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Boston saw a lead that once reached 21 points, slip away in the third quarter, but the Celtics made sure they didn't trail for long.

On the short end of a 73-71 score after three, Boston opened the final frame with 16 straight points to pull away from the Memphis Grizzlies for a 102-93 victory on Saturday night.

"We just stayed composed and went out and executed," said Celtics forward Al Horford, who scored 15 points. "We got some stops on defense. On the offensive end, we moved the ball pretty well. I think that was the difference. We opened up the game after that."
