Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns Live
Despite not being at full strength in the first half of the season, the Celtics still played excellent basketball at both ends of the floor and rallied to a 34-10 record and the first place in the Eastern Conference. Looking for their eight win in ten games, Paul Pierce and the Boston Celtics will visit the struggling Phoenix Suns on Saturday at 3:30 a.m. GMT.
While it was somewhat obvious that the Suns would struggle to repeat their Conference Finals appearance in 2010-11, the absence of Amar’e Stoudemire cannot fully account for the mediocre performance of Steve Nash and company. More precisely, Phoenix won just 20 out of the first 46 regular season games and could very well miss the playoffs down the stretch. Above all, the Suns have been the second worst defensive team up to this point and gave up a whopping 108 points per contest. Therefore, in order to avoid another loss, Phoenix will have to show a much better effort when the Celtics are in town on Saturday night.
