What to Know

The Boston Celtics will take on the Phoenix Suns at 7 p.m. ET Thursday at TD Garden after having had a few days off. Coming off of a loss in a game they were expected to win, Boston now face the more daunting task of proving themselves against unfavorable odds.

The Celtics were within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Monday as they fell 102-96 to the Chicago Bulls. The top scorer for Boston was shooting guard Jaylen Brown (23 points).

Meanwhile, it was all tied up 54-54 at the half for Phoenix and the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday, but Phoenix stepped up in the second half for a 116-113 victory. Having forecasted a close win for Phoenix, the oddsmakers were right on the money. Their point guard Chris Paul did his thing and shot 5-for-8 from downtown and finished with 28 points and eight assists.

The Celtics came up short against the Suns in the teams’ previous meeting in February, falling 100-91. Maybe Boston will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the matchup and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
