Game Day: Suns (17-24) @ Celtics (27-13), Sat 1/18/20

Time: 5:00 pm AZ (4:00 pm PT/7:00 pm ET)
Place: TD Garden, Boston, MA
TV: FSAZ/NBALP

We're at the half way point and ready to start the 2nd half of the season. Unfortunately, we can't play the Knicks every night but lets hope to see what we saw in that last game on a more consistent basis. Let's stay in that fight for the 8th seed.

Go Suns!!!

Do you guys realize that at the half way point we're 2 wins short of our last season total? Here's to a more consistent second half of the season!

Kelly Oubre Jr. remains out for tomorrow's game in Boston due to concussion protocol. Cam Johnson (quad bruise) is questionable.

Let's start the second half the way we started the first.

No kemba. This game is winnable. Celtics are small, Ayton should feast!

I kinda like this starting lineup.
JJ will be better than KP when all is said and done [in 2020]. Mark it. — AIG, with Indy betting against

My [2019-20] prediction is better than mid 30s... mark it down! — Superbone

Our lobs to him haven’t been great so far
Not sure why they didn’t start kanter they don’t have much size.
Saric is hustling nicely so far

3 backup pgs in at once. I guess we have nothing else.
Maybe post up booker

Okobo misses both and a lay up given up in transition.
Suns have a 6th sense when a qtr is running down and it’s time to play fair and let the other team back.

Give it to booker every fucking time regards.

Booker hacked and then taytum forearm pushes Barnes out the way for a lay up.

Our bench had to be smarter. You’ve got to get it to booker not okobo or carter pissing away the shot clock and putting up heaves. Monty needs to call timeouts late in Quarters when we start relaxing. It’s consist rly a problem.

Book had it going early, the offense was clicking and they were spacing real well. Had a 16 pt lead, then the bench came and it's now 6. Book got fouled right before the end of the 1st but no call, Tatum came down the other end and pushed off on Baynes for the layup but no call.

Playing Carter, Okobo, Book, Saric and Baynes to close the 1st.

Rubio, Jerome, Carter, Bridges and Baynes...not a fan of the lineup. The Cs are tough because they have a lot of guards and swings, but I wouldn't play into their hands/style.
