Game Day: Suns (42-16) @ Celtics (31-27), Thurs 4/22/21

Post by Superbone »

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

Another day, another game. This time in Boston against a banged up Celtics squad. I'm reading that Jaylen Brown, Evan Fournier and Kemba Walker are probably out.

Go Suns!!!

I'm not sure how I feel about beating these teams with various injuries... the W is obviously nice but I also want to know how our team stacks up against their full rosters.

I think Crowder will probably be out for this one. Maybe give Craig a shot at in the starting line up?

I think that would be good. Dario just needs to do something else to get his wind back. He hasn't been the same since coming back from COVID. Tatum said he now has to use inhalers before games, and he never used one before COVID. Some guys might never be the same again. For our team's sake I hope that isn't Dario.

I know it won't happen, but I want Paul to rest in this game.

Let's get so far ahead that he can rest for the second half! :)

In-game resting isn't a bad idea either.

Does this mean MVFrank may make an appearance? I miss him.

I think we need his scoring off the bench. I kind of like when the two Cams play together, too. Maybe start Craig? But then we lose a lot of rebounding from the bench.

Looking like Dario's good to go. Still wouldn't mind seeing Frank tho.

Celtics up 21-11, nothing going down for the Suns and the Cs are getting easy looks on the other end. We look like a team that played a tough one last night. Craig is bringing the hustle but we need a spark on offense.

The Celtics broadcast feels like they're calling the game from a closet.

This is the game that they need to force feed Ayton 30 times. Get them in foul trouble.
