NBA, Celtics Twitter react to Boston’s 125-98 utter destruction of the Suns

It is not very often one sees the sort of offensive beat down the Boston Celtics laid on the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night. The Celtics smacked the (then) West-leading Suns, 125-98.

To add insult to injury, that score disguises just how thick Boston laid it on through the game’s first three quarters. The Celtics were up by as much as 45 points in what was supposed to be a pitched battle between the two conference leaders on the night of Chris Paul’s return from a lingering heel injury that had the veteran point guard sidelined for a month.

Let’s take a look at what NBA and Celtics Twitter had to say about the blowout win.
