Boston was without Al Horford, Marcus Morris and then Aron Baynes Wednesday night. What remained couldn't get it down against the Phoenix Suns in a 111-103 loss.
The Celtics drop their second straight and lose Baynes for a while with a broken hand. With he and Horford sidelined, DeAndre Ayton had a field day in the paint.
The Celtics needed a win to head into a tough stretch of games on a strong note, but no such luck at TD Garden.
