PHOENIX, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- Markieff Morris scored 18 points and Channing Frye sank four 3-point shots Wednesday to pace the Phoenix Suns in their 100-94 win over the Boston Celtics.

Morris was one of six players in double figures for the Suns, who have won back-to-back games coming out of the All-Star break.

Frye finished with 15 points. Goran Dragic and Gerald Green both scored 17.

Rajon Rando led the sluggish Celtics, who lost for the third time in their last four games. Rondo finished with a double-double of 18 points and 10 assists. Brandon Bass also scored 18 and Jeff Green added 17.

Boston rallied in the fourth quarter and cut the Suns' lead to 88-86 with 3:59 to play on a 3-point bucket by Kelly Olynyk, but the Celtics immediately hit a cold streak and did not score again until Gerald Wallace sank a pair of free throws with 1:39 to play to make in 92-88.
