What to Know

The Boston Celtics are on the road again Sunday and play against the Phoenix Suns at 2 p.m. ET Feb. 7 at PHX Arena. The Celtics aren't favored, but they just beat the odds in their last game, so don't count them out.

Boston came out on top in a nail-biter against the Los Angeles Clippers this past Friday, sneaking past 119-115. It was another big night for Boston's small forward Jayson Tatum, who shot 5-for-10 from beyond the arc and finished with 34 points and seven rebounds.

Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the matchup between Phoenix and the Detroit Pistons this past Friday was still a pretty decisive one as Phoenix wrapped it up with a 109-92 victory at home. Phoenix's point guard Chris Paul did his thing and had 20 points and nine assists along with seven boards.

Their wins lifted both teams to an identical 12-9. We'll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when the Celtics and the Suns clash.
