The Celtics rallied from a 21-point second half deficit in the finale of their five-game road trip but a pair of huge 3-pointers from Al-Farooq Aminu down the stretch helped the Blazers hold off the visitors for 100-94 victory. Jayson Tatum tied his regular season career-high with 27 points in the setback while Kyrie Irving added 21 points but it wasn't enough against a Blazers team that dominated the glass (15 offensive rebounds) and got some timely 3-point makes (14-of-36 from deep) during crunch time.

The loss drops the C's to 7-6 on the season and leaves a sour taste at the conclusion of a 1-4 road trip for Brad Stevens and company. Jusuf Nurkic (19 points, 15 rebounds) and Damian Lillard (18 points, 12 assists) led the Blazers to the win, as Portland improved to 10-3 with the victory.
