This will prove to be a poor spot for the Phoenix Suns. First the Boston Celtics are well rested having not competed on Tuesday night. Their rookie head coach Brad Stevens has had plenty of time developing a game plan for this specific game. The Phoenix Suns were forced to go on the road on Tuesday night and face the Denver Nuggets playing in high altitude. The Suns were forced an overtime period and had to play hard for 53 minutes of that NBA game. We find two key players on Phoenix logging in heavy minutes. Point guard Goran Dragic played 42 minutes and their sixth ma off the bench in Markieff Morris had to log in 41 ½ minutes. Remember these heavy minutes were logged in a fiercely completive 53 minute game and played in high altitude that takes a heavy toll on the body. Look for Boston to force a fast pace and set up the Suns for a second half collapse. We offense see teams facing a back to back after an altitude game lacking the necessary energy to run up and down the court for a full 48 minutes. Smart coaches like Brad Stevens despite not matching up with the talent level of Phoenix will incorporate and in game strategy to take full advantage of the situation here facing the Suns after the team competed in high altitude the day before. The NBA schedule can be rather mean at times.
