The Phoenix Suns put their season-high four game winning streak on the line as they go into Boston to face Jeff Green's Celtics. Green, along with Nenad Krstic, was traded from Oklahoma City to the Celtics for Kendrick Perkins at the trade deadline last week. For the Suns this is not a good thing for tonight's game as Perkins never had a big impact in this match-up while Green has been a guy who's hurt the Suns.
It will be interesting to see how the Celtics are using Green in their system. In his first two games he only played 19 minutes and averaged six points.
The Suns beat the Celtics in Phoenix a few weeks ago in a game that was marred by Kevin Garnett's repeated cheap-shots to Channing Frye (video below). Frye has been killing it since that game so don't be surprised if KG takes things up another notch and tries to take out the hot shooter with something even harder and cheaper...like a pipe.
The game tips at 5:30 p.m. local time on My45 TV and will be broadcast on Sports 620 radio. Fans can follow along during the game with other Suns fans at the live game thread at Bright Side of the Sun.
