The Boston Celtics blew a 14-point third-quarter lead but rode the play of their bench to their fourth straight win, a 87-79 decision over the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday. Phoenix, losers of 10 of its last 11 games overall and its last 11 on the road, rallied with a 17-0 run over a 5:19 span of the third. But the Suns ran out of gas as the Celtics, opening a season-long five-game homestand, ran off an 11-2 spurt at start of the fourth quarter to break it open again.
