From the Globe:

The Celtics left yesterday for Memphis prepared to face a very different Grizzlies team than the one they saw (and lost to) last month. Interim coach Tony Barone is 2-1 since replacing Mike Fratello and he has the Grizzlies running and gunning. "They scored 144 in regulation [Wednesday]," Rivers said. "Clearly, he's getting them to push the ball and take early shots. And that's pretty smart, seeing as how they're not a power team." Mike Miller has flourished in this style, particularly in 3-point shooting. In three games under Barone, Miller is averaging 30.7 points, shooting a mind-boggling 23 of 34 from international waters. Memphis has averaged 121 points under Barone
