The Celtics are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Phoenix and 3-10 ATS in the last 13 meetings.
There should be some motivation here after the Phoenix Suns got their boots smoked by the Mavericks. However, the Suns have been a little too hit or miss up to this point, and they're still dealing with key players injured. The Boston Celtics have been the most consistent team in the league from the start, and it's rare to see them in these spots with these soft lines. The Celtics win by an average of 8.2 points in the favorite role. I'll lay the bucket.
