The Celtics [1] have begun their season at 0-4 after dropping a 95-88 loss to the Grizzlies [2] at Memphis Monday night. It is the first time the C’s have started a season without a win in their first four games since 1969.

The Celts were doomed by a mammoth fourth quarter by Jerryd Bayless, who netted 15 points in the final frame. ┬áBayless went 6-of-7 from the field in the fourth to help erase the visitors’ six-point lead midway through the final quarter.

Not helping matters for Brad Stevens [3]‘ team once again were a healthy amount of turnovers, notching 21 in the game. The Celtics lead the league with the most turnovers through the season’s first couple of weeks.

The Celtics had grabbed a four-point lead at halftime, in large part because of Jeff Green’s 16 points in the first two quarters. It was a half that saw the C’s shoot 54 percent from the floor.

But Memphis came out hot in the second half, going on a 12-4 run while Boston was going just 1-for-9 from the field. The Celts to rebound to grab a six-point lead heading into the fourth quarter.

Green led the Celtics with 22 points (going 9-for-12 from the field), while Jared Sullinger contributed with 16 points in just 20 minutes. Rookie Kelly Olynyk had a rough night, going 1-for-8 from the floor while committing four turnovers.
