Boston Celtics Lose Against Suns As They Show An Apparent Lack Of Focus

Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics appeared to let up after a dominating effort on Wednesday against the Nets, resulting in a humiliating loss against the Suns. The Celtics had a two-match winning run snapped on the night of Friday after a 106-94 loss led by Jayson Tatum’s awful play.

Boston Celtics Only Had Themselves To Blame For The Loss

They’ve dropped 4 of their previous 6 games, and the Boston Celtics really need Marcus Smart. Despite their recent slump, Boston still leads the Eastern Conference by 1.5 games over second-placed Milwaukee Bucks. For the Celtics, Jaylen Brown’s hot start meant business early on, as he scored 12 points during the first 15 minutes alone. Just before the good start, Brown had tweeted about the “energy shifting” in the room. However, it seemed like only Brown paid attention, as the rest of the Celtics were distracted.

The Celtics shot even worse in the beginning half than they did in the last game against the Nets on Wednesday. As a result, Boston Celtics fans began to wonder if the venue had been affected by the sub-zero weather outside. The Celtics started the game on a 7-0 run, but they were down by 13 points by the time halftime came around.

The Celtics shifted gears in the 3rd quarter, outscoring the Phoenix Suns 29-17. Brown’s outstanding performance carried over to the final whistle when he tallied 27 points, 4 assists, and 8 rebounds. The remaining Celtics players, though, were not on the same level, and Phoenix capitalized. The Suns broke away in the final moments of the 3rd quarter, from Boston Celtics, and won with an 8-0 streak to begin the final period. This is Boston’s first home double-digit loss after November of 2021, and their ninth straight loss when trailing by 8 or higher at halftime.
