The Celtics finish up a five-game road trip in Portland. They will go home with a losing record out West but 1–4 would look pretty ugly, especially considering it took a mammoth comeback to get that win against Phoenix.
But that’s what Boston is facing if it loses this game to the hot Trail Blazers. Kyrie Irving didn’t play in Utah on Friday night but he’ll be good to go in this one after his season-high thirty-nine against Phoenix. Terry Rozier got extended minutes with Irving resting against Utah.
All the talk is about Toronto and how much better it is than Boston. It’s just so overblown. The Celtics have the fourth-worst offense in basketball right now and they are still 7–5.
Irving is just hitting his stride after a slow start and Jayson Tatum has struggled. Gordon Hayward is way too good to be anything but a dynamic playmaker with this much talent around him.
Check back in with me at the halfway point and then before the playoffs start. Crowning Toronto the champion of the Eastern Conference would be a mistake that I’m pretty sure has happened before once or twice of late. I’m not buying low on Boston yet but I will eventually.
Portland Trail Blazers
That’s because Portland is cooking and this is its sixth and final game on a long home stand. It’s lost just once, by four points to the Lakers in a revenge spot for LeBron James. Otherwise, the Blazers have defeated New Orleans, Minnesota, Milwaukee and the Clippers.
CJ McCollum backed up a forty-point effort against Milwaukee in the middle of the week with twenty-three against the Clippers in a win on Thursday. He and Dame Lillard combined for forty-eight.
It’s nice that the organization has had patience, even if that patience won’t result in a championship. It’s kept Lillard and McCollum around long enough to build a bit of a home-grown group of role players around them.
Jake Layman and Zach Collins look impressive as young shooters and you can throw Nik Stauskas in there too. Seth Curry is one of the best three-point shooters in the league and Jusuf Nurkic is a beast inside. He better stay healthy though.
Boston is going to get everything it can handle in this game.
