Boston Celtics rookie floor general Payton Pritchard continued to shine in his second game back from a sprained knee with another solid performance in a road loss to the 13-9 Phoenix Suns on Sunday afternoon.

The Oregon product put up 12 points, 5 rebounds and an assist in 23 minutes of playing time, shooting 4-of-9 from the floor. He attempted only 3-point shots. While it would have been nice to see Pritchard (and the rest of the team for that matter) get to the line against the Suns, the West Linn native helped keep the Celtics in a game that easily could have become a rout without him.

Watch his best plays from the contest in the clip embedded above put together by Tomasz Kordylewski while we wait for the last of Boston’s five West Coast games to finish off their current road trip.
