Phoenix Suns Vs. Boston Celtics: TV Schedule And Lineups (?)

The Phoenix Suns fourth game on the five-game road trip takes them to Boston to face the Celtics.

The Phoenix Suns (5-9) are on a roll! They bring their one-game winning streak into Beantown to face the oldish looking Boston Celtic (5-8). The Suns may (or may not) catch a break in the form of Rajon Rondo's sore wrist. He originally was listed as doubtful to play but it looks like he will go or perhaps he's a game-time decision.

There's a couple of ways to read the Rondo wrist news. The Suns played Kobe Bryant with a sore wrist and that didn't go so well (for the Suns). The Suns played the Bulls without their star point guard and that didn't go do well either (for the Suns). So are the Suns better off facing Rondo with a sore wrist or facing the Celtics without Rondo. Who knows and honestly, this entire paragraph doesn't matter at all since he'll play or not play regardless.

Projected lineups:

It looks like Alvin Gentry will stick with changes to his starting lineup.

One match-up that will be fun to watch is Morris and Garnett: blogs - Coro's Orange Slices - PaulCoro - Suns lowdown from Beantown
"It's a great feeling just to be playing against him and definitely an honor," Morris said. "I heard he tries to bully guys so I've just got to hold my ground."

Morris might just earn some additional love from Suns fans tonight if he gets into it a bit with KG who's antics haven't earned him much love from the Suns over the last few years.

Phoenix Suns vs. Boston Celtics Game Preview - Bright Side Of The Sun
This has been one of the league's elite teams. But the key phrase in that statement might just be "has been", as the aging Celtics are off to a slow start at 5-8, and talk of "blowing up the team" is swirling after it took a game against the lowly Raptors for the Celtics to snap a 5-game losing streak.
