Don't look now but the Phoenix Suns have won four consecutive games.
Prior to winning four games in a row, the Suns had four wins on the entire season. On Wednesday, they went into the TD Garden and pulled off an improbable upset over the Boston Celtics, winning by a final score of 111-103.
The Celtics had an 11-point lead after the first quarter and led by three points at the half but the Suns took the lead by the end of the third quarter and never surrendered it.
Boston cut it as close as five points after a clutch three from Kyrie Irving with 1:11 left in the fourth, but newly acquired forward Kelly Oubre Jr. knocked down a dagger 3-pointer to seal the game with under a minute to go.

While Oubre's clutch shot and impact is certainly one of the top storylines of the game, let's talk about how Devin Booker always torches the Celtics.
Booker scored a team-high 25 points on Wednesday, finally securing a win over Boston after dropping three games in a row despite great performances.
Earlier this season he scored 38 points on 15-of-30 shooting from the field with nine assists against the Celtics, but the Suns let a fourth quarter lead slip away from them before falling in overtime.
Booker had 38 points and five assists against the Celtics last season. The season prior to that, he had the 70-point game in Boston that is hard to forget.
"If I get on any social media (site) I'm going to hear about it all day when this game's coming up." Booker said. "Obviously that was a special night in my career."
Over his last four games against the Celtics, Booker is averaging 42.8 points, 7.3 assists and 5.0 rebounds shooting 50.0 percent from the field and 35.0 percent from 3-point land. The Suns are just 1-3 in those four contests but it's certainly not retrospective of Booker's efforts.
"We had multiple conversations when we were losing early in the year," Booker said after the win. "We looked around the locker room and said, 'Nobody's going to feel bad for us.'"
The running joke on NBA Twitter is that the Suns are undefeated since this tweet from their franchise player:
I love Phoenix- Devin Booker (@DevinBook) December 14, 2018
They'll look to keep that streak rolling when they take on Oubre's former team, the Washington Wizards, on Saturday.
