Notebook: Suns 100, Celtics 94


Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Feb 20, 2014 12:53 AM - Updated Thu Feb 20, 2014 12:53 AM

THE FACT: The Phoenix Suns play eight of their first nine post-All Star break games at home.

THE LEAD: Early and late burst of Suns' fast breaks gave them just enough to pull out a 100-94 win over the Celtics Wednesday night.

The Suns (32-21) almost gave a hard-earned lead back in the closing moments. A 3-pointer by Channing Frye had given them a 95-88 lead with 1:21 left. But mistakes, including three fouls by P.J. Tucker and a missed reverse layup by Goran Dragic, gave the Celtics a shot in the final 24 seconds, trailing 97-94.

Then, Rajon Rando lost the ball on a drive to the hoop. The Celtics' Jared Sullinger grabbed the rebound but missed a short hook badly, and the Celtics (19-36) were done.

Markieff Morris led the Suns with 18 points off the bench. Dragic and Gerald Green both scored 17. Other than the late fouls, Tucker had an outstanding game with 10 points, 11 rebounds and three steals. He also tied a career high with six assists.

For the Celtics, Brandon Bass had 18 points and eight rebounds. Rondo had 18 points but shot just 7-for-22. Jeff Green had 17 points.

QUOTABLE: "We survived."
-- Suns coach Jeff Hornacek

THE STAT: The Suns, who stand No. 6 in the West, have won eight of their last 11 games.

TURNING POINT: The Celtics led 66-56 midway through the third quarter when the Suns got their running game going. Backup point guard Ish Smith made a key play by racing the length of the floor for a layup. Then after the Celtics' Kris Humphries missed two free throws, the Suns' Frye nailed a 3-pointer, then, moments later, the Suns' Morris hit a 35-footer to beat the third-quarter buzzer. The Suns suddenly had a 76-71 lead.

QUOTABLE II: "Out of those nine, seven shoot it great."
-- Celitcs coach Brad Stevens on the players in the Suns' regular rotation

QUOTABLE III: "You've got to be focused and want it. We're not good enough to take plays off. Every play for us matters...to be a good team. If you're tired, we can take you out...I want this team to develop a killer instinct."
-- Hornacek, who was unhappy with this team's performance

QUOTABLE IV: "From now on, he's just going to foul the guy."
--Phoenix's Goran Dragic, joking about Tucker, who fouled out the night after he was fined $5,000 for flopping against the Nuggets in Denver

HOT: Frye hit 4-for-6 on 3-pointers.

NOT: The Celtics are 4-19 vs. Western Conference teams.

ROOKIE WATCH: For the Celtics, Kelly Olynyk shot 3-for-10 for seven points and Phil Pressey had zero points and one rebound in seven minutes. For the Suns, Alex Len had two points and a rebound in seven minutes.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Over the last five games, Tucker is averaging 13.2 points and 10.0 rebounds.

NOTABLE: Longtime Suns' writer Joe Gilmartin has been named the recipient of the 2014 Curt Gowdy Media Award. Also named was John Andariese, a longtime New York Knicks' broadcaster. They will be recognized at the Hall of Fame enshrinement events in August in Springfield, Mass. Gilmartin was a longtime Suns' beat writer, columnist and sports editor at the Phoenix Gazette. The Hall of Fame also announced that retired Suns' guard Kevin Johnson, now the mayor of Sacramento, Calif., is one of the 10 finalists to be considered for election this year.

UP NEXT: For the Celtics, Friday @ Los Angeles Lakers, Saturday @ Sacramento and Monday @ Utah, For the Suns, Friday vs. Spurs, Sunday vs. Rockets and Tuesday vs. Timberwolves.
