Article Summary:

Paul paced Phoenix with 21 points and 10 assists and sealed the victory with a three-point play after his pull-up jumper from the free throw line with 17.1 seconds remaining.

Jae Crowder had a season-high 19 points, Deandre Ayton added 14 points and nine rebounds, and Cameron Johnson and JaVale McGee scored 13 apiece off the bench for the Suns, who won despite committing 17 turnovers.

Tatum had 29 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Celtics, who came within one point on a pair of Tatum free throws with 9.3 seconds left but couldn’t complete their comeback. “Credit to our guys, they took it to heart what I said at halftime and played harder, more together in the second half.”

Two of Boston’s three losses during its recent skid have come by seven points or fewer, highlighting how much the team missed second-leading scorer Jaylen Brown.
