BOSTON (AP) — Goran Dragic scored 20 points and the Phoenix Suns scored the last seven to beat the cold-shooting Boston Celtics 87-80 Friday night.

After Jeff Green's two free throws for Boston made it 80-80 with 2:02 left, the fourth tie of the fourth quarter, Alex Len started the decisive spurt with a three-point play on a tip-in and a free throw. The Suns finished the scoring with a dunk by Markieff Morris and a layup by Dragic.

Eric Bledsoe had 17 points and 10 rebounds and Morris added 15 points for Phoenix, which broke a three-game losing streak and moved 1½ games behind Dallas for the eighth and final Western Conference playoff spot.

Kris Humphries had 11 points and 13 rebounds and Chris Johnson scored 11 for the Celtics, who lost for the 10th time in 13 games.
