The celtics could not have asked for a better start, but they could certainly have asked for a better finish on Wednesday night against Phoenix Suns.

The 37 points of 70.8 percent shooting that Boston posted in the first quarter was faded in obscurity, when the soul-researching group smashed the bottom-dwelling Suns for the remaining 36 minutes of the game. After making 17 baskets during the first quarter, Celtics managed to hit 11 field goals in the second half.

“It was just another game,” said the watchman Kyrie Irving to the reporters.

The Suns &#821

1; who came into Wednesday’s competition tied to Chicago Bulls for the league’s worst record – extended their winnings to four with the 111-103 win.

Here’s what we learned:

Robert Williams still has a way to go.

Rookie Center Robert Williams Again lit the Garden crowd with five volleyball nail-esque blocks, giving his season a total of 22. A valuable rim protection, Williams continues to float almost every shot he can and is in average 3.2 blocked shots during their last five games. Sun’s center and comrades Deandre Ayton said that Williams did similar things back when the two met at college.

“It’s still the same guy who blocks the shot to what, the 20th row?” Sa Ayton, who signed a key block of himself on an after-timeout layup attempt by Irving during the last minute of the fourth quarter. “I must learn one thing or two of him to protect the rim.”

At the other end of the floor Williams placed eight points including two via a lob pass from Irving in the first quarter. The 21-year-old, however, appears to be limited to crimes, which rarely want to attack the basket when he receives the ball outside five meters from the rim. Of the 18 shots he has made this season, all 18 have come within the limited area and 14 have been dunks.

In the fourth quarter, with Celtics behind eight, Williams took a pass from Irving at the top of the bow and despite having an open lane, was chosen to dribble once and shot the ball to Marcus Smart in the corner. His hesitation about putting the ball on the floor and driving to basket can simply be a function of experience, according to coach Brad Stevens.

“He had some opportunities for crimes to play with when he became a little used to the game and used to play with the other guys,” Stevens said. “They did not pay much attention to him on the circumference and in the seams. There is play that he can make at the end of the floor.”

Williams agreed to get more representatives to raise their comfort level offensive. With Aron Baynes undefined after breaking his hand and Al Horford treating patellofemoral pain syndrome, Williams is likely to experience a busy playtime. He is currently an average of 8.8 minutes per game.

“We expect Rob a lot, but there’s also a learning curve for him,” says Irving. “He does many things already already, so I think the sky is the limit of his potential and what he brings to our team.”

The Celtics were burned on a key state.

The Suns – who came into Wednesday’s match ranked 28th in the league of offensive rebounding – took 21 offensive boards and generated 20 other chances against Celtics.

“It breaks people’s spirits, gets offensive returns and gets new possessions and converts from it,” Irving said.

No Baynes, no Horford, and no Marcus Morris, who was out with the right knee tenderness, meant that the Celtics would probably have a tough time on the glass. Stevens said that the trio’s absence contributed to Phoenix being the “faster and more physical team”. Still, Irving, with an average career-high 4.8 return per game, noted the guards to take it on to contribute in that area.

“When we lack boys, we must also help Rob rebound,” he said. “He competes and tries to go for each block. Helping him out is as important as he goes for the rebound. It’s part of being on a team, we must all cover each other.”

Inconsistency continues to plag the team .

Celtics quarterly breakdown – 37-25-18-23 – was not cute. For the ninth match this season they have registered a quarter in which they scored below 20 points and one where they have scored 30 points. Perhaps the most amazing example of their upsets was Friday night’s match against Atlanta Hawks, where their divisions were 42-25-41-21.

“We just have to play the whole game all the time,” says Irving. “We can not choose and choose.”

Forward Jayson Tatum attributed the inconsistency of “human nature” and says “nobody is perfect” but for a team of as much talent as the Celtics, the slide station seems to be more a reflection of still developing chemistry as well as some dissonance between individual and collective goals.

While things seemed to improve – Boston enjoined the league’s best net worth during its eight-game win-win. A home loss to the suns really triggers more questions about why the team has floundered in situations where successes will come quite easily. Irving related much of the fighting back to the effort.

“We must only have consistency among all our devices, anyone,” he said. “Just a cohesion where the ball’s movement and guys actually want to see other players be able to do the basketball. It means delivering on time and actually caring and actually trying on some belongings.”

“When we try to be in the game continuously. When we do not, we are not ready. “

Kelly Oubre is on a new team, but Boston’s feelings toward him are the same.

Make his debut as a member of the suns, forward Kelly Oubre Jr. Encountered a familiar greeting: a rush of angry in the garden. 19659003] Oubre – who was cast in Game 3 in 2017 Eastern Conference Semifinals for charging and knocking over Kelly Olynyk – said he believed that the negative reception could have dropped, but the 23-year-old was a lot of mistakes.

“I thought really they’d be over it, man, “he said.” Kelly is gone in Miami. I’m gone in Phoenix. We are on different teams now, but it will accompany me all my career. So I will embrace it. I love it. “

Celebrate what he did. Oubre blown several kisses to the audience, as he expressed it,” show them love. “Logging 26 minutes and 13 points from the bench, he said that the win” felt very good “despite the less than lukewarm welcome.

“I think I did a bit extra today because they do not like me here.”
