Phoenix Suns vs Boston Celtics
NBA Regular Season
PHX VS BOS MATCH PREVIEW:
Phoenix Suns host Boston Celtics in NBA action on Tuesday morning (IST) at Talking Stick Resort Arena, Phoenix, in Arizona.
If NBA was based on a system of promotion and relegation, then Phoenix Suns would certainly have gone down along with Memphis Grizzlies from Western Conference. They have been one of the worst performing teams this season and the point worth making noise for Suns' fans is that they have a certain talent named Devin Booker in their team who is averaging an incredible 24.9 points this season. As they say- enjoy as long as you can because big teams would sure circle around Talking Stick Resort Arena for his services-
Suns are last in Western Conference and have won just 19 games out of 74 they have played up until now, a win ratio of less than 25 percent.
Even if Suns improve their form, just for the sake of performance and which looks improbable, they can't move beyond Sacramento Kings who are 12th and have an advantage of 5 games over them.
Better plan for future now-
Boston Celtics are 2nd in the Eastern Conference heading into this match. There is a gap of six games over 3rd placed Cleveland Cavaliers, and they are four games worse than conference leaders Toronto Raptors. So considering their overall distribution of win and losses, Celts are definitely going to finish the season at 2nd.
Match Timing: Tomorrow, March 27, 07:30 AM IST
Venue: Talking Stick Resort Arena, Phoenix, Arizona
Form of the Team-
Phoenix Suns are on the current worst run in NBA as they have lost all of their last 11 games. Well, it looks like the streak, an unwanted one of course but not unchangeable for a willing mind, may stretch to 12 considering the profile of their hosts.
As a team, Phoenix Suns are accumulating points at an average of 104 per game in 2017-18, while they are shooting at 43.9 percent. They are also allowing the opponents to rack up points at an average of 113.9 points against them, while teams are shooting at 47.3 percent against them.
Boston Celtics have won six of their last nine games, while their last two wins came on the road against Sacramento Kings and Portland Trail Blazers respectively.
The Celts are averaging 104.3 points this season, and are conceding 100.4 points-per-game in 2017-18.
The Greens are not a good team when it comes to shooting beyond the arc. In Fact, they are performing worse than their opponents in that department as they are converting their three-pointers at an average of 37.5 percent only.

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
There is a vast gulf between Phoenix Suns and Boston Celtics, and the table shows that this could be a match between David and Goliath.
But as in that mythical story, Suns could usurp Celtics in that match if they perform to their potential.
However, if Devin Booker and T.J. Warren don't feature, then winning the match against Celtics could prove to be an uphill task for the hosts.
Celtics, on the other hand, boast a 4-1 record in their favor in the last five match they played against teams from Western Conference. Also, considering their recent good showing on the road, we are backing an away win in this match.
