This is a tough loss to swallow. The Celtics didn’t play well all game, they were down 15 points in the 3rd quarter. They were somehow able to pull even with the Suns and even took the lead with a few seconds left in the game.
But the Celts gave up 5 points in 6 seconds and went on to lose the game 109-106 because of a costly turnover by Isaiah Thomas.

Absolutely heart breaking. Total kick in the dick type game. This game was possibly heading to overtime, if anything the Celtics had a shot of their own to win the game in the final seconds but they turned the damn ball over and decided to crush all of us. This loss hurts. Absolutely devastating.
I know Avery and Horford were sitting this one out, but they should have still been able to win this game. It’s the Suns.
The Celtics in all likelihood can’t catch the Cavs for the #1 seed, but they have teams right on their ass, and losses like this cannot happen. Rookie type loss right here.
This is the kind of loss that can just ruin this whole road trip they are on right now.
The Celtics play tomorrow night in L.A. against the Clippers.
