    Celtics are on the 3rd game in 4 nights and have them on a back to back. Sun's are well rested with a nice 4 days off.

    We need to run them out the building and beat them up.

    Brad Stevens just called the #Suns one of his favorite teams to watch on League Pass. Said that starts with Aron Baynes, who he called an “energy-raiser.” Stevens knows, as he coached Baynes the past two seasons in Boston.

    Have we ever played well following 3 days rest? Maybe it's just selective memory at work but I cringe even when we just get a 2nd day off, we seem to play worse than we do on the rear end of a B2B. It's tough to stay in great game shape and in rhythm when you're used to a game every other day and it doesn't happen. Late in the season an extra day can be a lifesaver but this early, it's just wasted IMO.

    A big change tonight. Ricky Rubio is doubtful and Jevon Carter will start.

    Suns announce Ricky Rubio is now doubtful for tonight's game due to back spasms. Jevon Carter is starting.

    That's a shock.

    Tonight, it the poor Suns.

    At least his back spasms will heal.

    I wonder if the Suns called someone up from the G-league for added depth.

    The Suns do have Jevon Carter and Tyler Johnson who can play point guard.

    Of course the Suns have Okobo and Booker can play some point guard if necessary.

    Ouch, both figuratively in terms of the team's prospects tonight and in terms of Rubio, knowing just how painful back spasms can be. Feel better soon, Ricky. Perhaps reach out to Steve Nash about how to maintain the back moving forward...

    How long does it take to recover from a bruised nutmeg?

    Booker gets the Suns on the scoreboard for a 2-0 lead.

    Kanter is entering game for Celtics. One thing he can do well is score.

    Suns are getting good looks but not running smooth without Rubio.
