Suns Fizzle in Beantown

Although Goran Dragic (25 points) captained the Suns and encouraged them to shoot the lights out in Boston, the three-pointer-or-bust mentality did them in as the Celtics made an energized return to Boston, with a passionate crowd fueling them all on in what culminated as a great team effort all around. The comparison of 27 (BOS) assists to 11 (PHX) was worthy enough of a blowout victory at home, despite Phoenix rallying back with their streaky shooting talents to close the half and a poor shooting game by Rondo. Nonetheless, Garnett, Terry (who had a good night after a disappointing stint on the road), Pierce, Millsap and the rookies--Kris Joseph, Jared Sullinger & Dionte Christmas (who was recently made active in place of Fab Melo and for good reason) provided a conscious effort on both ends of the court to send the lazy Suns home with a 1-5 record to start the regular season, unable to scorch Boston's fluent spirits (5-2).
