Boston Celtics vs Phoenix Suns by Lloyds
Phoenix still look like a playoff contender but their defense is not playing like it should. The Suns are just too lenient when defending which is shown by the fact that they allow 105.0 points per game. Their backcourt will have an advantage over the Celtics tonight as Goran Dragic, Eric Bledsoe and Isiah Thomas score a combined 45 points per game. The home side is likely to go through Jeff Green, who is the best scorer on the team (18.9 points per game). The Celtics, however, are even worse than Phoenix when it comes to defense. Boston allows 108.4 points per game which ranks them 28th in the league.
It's obvious that we won't see to many defensive stops from both of these teams but I expect offenses to thrive in such conditions. The home side showed that they can score big while Phoenix do not struggle when attacking. Expect a high score game tonight.
