Thursday, November 9 finds the Boston Celtics traveling to meet host Phoenix Suns as the teams continue into the fourth week of play in the 2018-19 regular season. Boston last played Monday in Denver where they nabbed suffered a loss much to Kyrie Irving’s chagrin. Phoenix arrives to the match having lost in their last match versus the Nets on Tuesday.
Last season, the Celtics swept the season series. The Celtics hold the all-time record having bested the Suns in 70 of their 125 matches.
Entering week four of action the Celtics boasted the league’s top defense, but continue to struggle to find offensive balance ranking 27th.
With so much talent on Boston it’s presumed these issues are tied more to integrating Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving into the mix with the young stars. Of late, Irving is producing, but making finding the balance with Tatum, Brown and Hayward is the key.
The other offensive issue is the argument Boston’s reserves while solid defensively don’t possess enough scorers. Late in the season that shouldn’t play as much of a factor, but then again squads who possess multiple two-way reserve players could still create issues for the men in green.
Still, it seems reasonable to presume Boston should perform better offensively as the season progresses. Facing squads like the Suns affords them an opportunity to iron out some of those kinks.
Daniel Theis (torn plantar fascia, right foot) and Jabari Bird (personal) are both out for indefinite periods.
Big man Tyson Chandler received a buyout and signed with Western foe the Lakers. This to afford more minutes for rookie sensation Deandre Ayton. It may also signal the raising of the white flag as this gesture by Phoenix surely confirms their expectations of returning to the lottery.
Devin Booker is back in the fold after missing games early in season and picked up right where he left off including a clutch game winning shot with 1.7 seconds remaining versus the Grizzlies on Sunday.
T.J. Warren missed two games recently, but returned versus the Nets and is expected to play Thursday versus the Celtics. No other Sun injuries to report.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
Kyrie Irving’s wallet is lighter after taking exception to Jamal Murray in the Denver loss. Look for Irving to utilize his angst to spearhead his crew toward the win and to get Boston’s overall offense flowing. By the same token Boston will have an issue dealing with rookie Deandre Ayton.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Suns +9.5
Celtics get the easy win, but it might not be by the predicted spread since any foul trouble for Horford will allow Ayton to beast.
