It took the Phoenix Suns 28 games to win their first four games of the 2018-19 season.

It took them just four more to double that total.

The Phoenix Suns upset the host Boston Celtics 111-103 on Wednesday night, giving them their first four-game winning streak since March of 2015. The Suns beat the Dallas Mavericks and Minnesota Timberwolves at home and the New York Knicks on the road during their current streak.

The Suns' wins at New York and Boston were just their second and third road victories of the season.

Wednesday's game featured the debut of forward Kelly Oubre Jr., who was acquired in a trade with the Washington Wizards on Monday. Oubre contributed 13 points and six rebounds in 26 minutes vs. Boston.

Devin Booker scored a team-high 25 points for the Suns, while center and No. 1 overall draft pick Deandre Ayton added 23 points and 18 rebounds.

Next up for the Suns: a showdown with Oubre's former team, the Wizards, in Washington on Dec. 22, followed by a trip to Brooklyn to face the Nets the following day and a visit to the Orlando Magic on Dec. 26. The Suns will then return home to face the Oklahoma City Thunder on Dec. 28. Get your tickets here.
