Notebook: Suns 87, Celtics 80


Brian Robb, for NBA.com
Posted Fri Mar 14, 2014 11:46 PM - Updated Sat Mar 15, 2014 12:26 AM

THE FACT: Avery Bradley came off the Celtics' bench in his return to the floor, marking the first time since April 4, 2012 that the shooting guard came off the bench for Boston.

THE LEAD: The Phoenix Suns ended the game on a 7-0 run, helping them pull away from the Boston Celtics and escape with an 87-80 win. Goran Dragic scored 20 points in the victory, and Eric Bledsoe added 17 points and a season-high 10 rebounds to help Phoenix snap a three-game losing streak. Kris Humphries and Chris Johnson each scored a team-high 11 points, as the hosts failed to score more than 22 points in a quarter all night. The Celtics have now lost three straight games overall and are averaging just 85 points per game in those defeats.

QUOTABLE: "I thought we did a better job, we played harder defensively. I don't know if that affected our offense. We missed shots, but again defense when you aren't shooting the ball well can win you the game, and I think it did tonight."
-- Suns' coach Jeff Hornacek

THE STAT: Aided by the return of Bledsoe, Phoenix delivered one of their best defensive performances of the year, limiting the Celtics to a putrid 30.9 percent from the field. That's a season-low field goal percentage for a Suns' opponent this year.

TURNING POINT: With Miles Plumlee sidelined in the fourth quarter, Hornacek turned to rookie Alex Len down the stretch at center. The move paid dividends, as Len broke a 80-80 tie in the game's final minute with a pivotal 3-point play off an offensive rebound that put Phoenix ahead for good.

QUOTABLE II: "We didn't play with any poise. That was probably the biggest thing. I should've just called time out because the last 40 seconds were awful."
-- Brad Stevens on Boston allowing Phoenix to close game on 7-0 run

HOT: Dragic -- Phoenix's leading scorer outplayed Rajon Rondo for the better part of 48 minutes. Dragic had his shot going in the paint and beyond the arc early, scoring a game-high 11 points in the first half on 5-for-7 shooting.

NOT: Channing Frye -- The sharpshooting big man failed to connect from 3-point range against Boston's stingy defense on the perimeter. Frye finished the game 1-of-9 from the field, including 0-of-5 from beyond the arc.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Bledsoe -- The third-year guard posted just his second double-double of the season in his second game back from knee surgery. Bledsoe also added four assists, a steal and just one turnover in 29 minutes of action.

ROOKIE WATCH: Kelly Olynyk -- The 14th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft continued the best month of his career with a strong performance off the Boston bench. The big man scored eight points and had 10 rebounds. Olynyk also snagged a game-high five offensive rebounds.

GOOD MOVE: Hornacek's decision to re-insert Bledsoe back into the starting lineup alongside Dragic appeared to energize the starting five. The Suns got off to a quick start with Bledsoe back in the fold, outscoring Boston 29-22 in the first quarter.

NOTABLE: Miles Plumlee left the game in the second half due to a poked left eye. He did not return. ...Bradley scored nine points over 17 minutes in his return to the floor. ...Boston wore special St. Patrick's Day sleeved jerseys. The team will wear the green jerseys for their next two games. ...With the win, Phoenix evened up their road record for the season at 15-15. ...Jeff Green finished with just nine points on 2-of-14 shooting. ...Both teams combined for 40 fast break points. ...P.J. Tucker had a season-high seven turnovers....Phoenix is 17-9 when Bledsoe is in the lineup...Gerald Green has scored 12 total points in last two games, after posting 26.0 ppg in the previous five...Boston shot a season-low 30.9 percent from the field.

UP NEXT: For the Celtics, Sunday @ New Orleans, Monday @ Dallas, Wednesday vs. Miami. For the Suns, Sunday @ Toronto, Monday @ Brooklyn, Wednesday vs. Orlando.
