PHX vs BOS Dream11: As the COVID-19 surge and injury list create fractures among different rosters, it becomes difficult to predict lineups. In this game, the Phoenix Suns host the Boston Celtics in a cross-conference match-up. The Suns have one of the best records in the league, only the second team other than the

Warriors with 20 wins, meanwhile, Celtics have lost half of the 26 games.
Suns are not a team that can be taken lightly. Even without Booker, the bench depth and the Guard play of Chris Paul keep the Suns ticking on the offensive end. The team has athletic wings and an incredible defensive Center that make the Suns a team to reckon with on both ends.

The Celtics have had no rhythm to the season. They keep losing against elite teams and their team chemistry looks off during many cases. Boston has not made the fans happy and at times, the team play looks wayward while depending on just one or two players.

Host: Phoenix Suns
Visitors: Boston Celtics

Match Timing: 11 December, @ 08:30 AM
Venue: Foot Print Center

NBA Projections, Stats, & Analysis

Suns: Deep and determined
Suns have won a ton of games due to their depth and incredible team play. With Chris Paul handing over 10-15 assists and a healthy Devin Booker, the Suns can mount up a substantial attack. Jae Crowder and Mikal Bridges are two wings that can score and defend. On the other hand, Deandre Ayton has been a stellar presence in the middle on both ends of the floor. Among bench players, Cameron Johnson, Cameron Payne, Landry Shamet, and JaVale McGee all bring in high-quality play.

Celtics: Where is the season heading?

While Jayson Tatum is surely a high-quality 25-35 points scorer and the Celtics have other options like Schroeder, Smart, Horford, and Richardson. The trouble is that the Celtics are behind the curve in crunch moments are their play against teams with elite records has been especially underwhelming. The team needs to defend better and stop giving early leads, which has been a huge issue lately. Can the Celtics improve the record here or will they keep reeling?
