The first half was a fast paced game, lots of easy baskets for both sides early. However, as the half went on it turned into poor shooting contest as Boston only shot 37%. The C’s were down a quick 11 points, and then they snuck back into it reducing the gap to 2 going into the locker room for the half.
The C’s came out flat and let up what felt like ten million fast-break buckets in the beginning of the third. The final frame proved to be go time as the C’s came out gunning, going on a 9 to 0 run and picking up the lead. Dragic would have none of that and orechstrated his team back into the lead. It was a basket for basket battle down the stretch, but a huge and-1 by Alex Len down the stretch gave the Suns the lead. The Celts had a mess of a possession out of the time out and the game was over.
The Celtics get back after it Sunday evening versus the New Orleans Pelicans at the Smoothie King Center.
