Who’s Playing

Phoenix @ Boston

Current Records: Phoenix 27-7; Boston 16-19

What to Know

The Boston Celtics’ homestand continues as they prepare to take on the Phoenix Suns at 1 p.m. ET Dec. 31 at TD Garden. Phoenix should still be feeling good after a win, while the Celtics will be looking to get back in the win column.

Boston came up short against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday, falling 91-82. Point guard Payton Pritchard wasn’t much of a difference maker for Boston; Pritchard finished with only four points on 2-for-10 shooting in his 34 minutes on the court.

Meanwhile, Phoenix wrapped up 2021 with a 115-97 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Shooting guard Devin Booker continued his habit of dropping crazy stat lines, shooting 6-for-12 from beyond the arc and finishing with 38 points, five assists and seven boards.

Boston is expected to lose this next one by 3.5. Now might not be the best time to take the Celtics against the spread since they’ve let down bettors for the past two consecutive games.

Boston suffered a grim 111-90 defeat to the Suns in the teams’ previous meeting earlier this month. Maybe Boston will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
