The Trail Blazers have kept their winning streak by seizing a heavyweight victory against Celtics. Inspired by strong defensive efforts, the squad of head coach Terry Stotts survived an oppressive night on evil. The 33-point flash of Damian Lillard provided a strike that put Portland in first place, but the songs of the performances of Maurice Harkles and Yusuf Nurkich held the Blazers afloat.
It was a similar recipe for Celtics on Wednesday. Kyrie Irving put a firework and Markus Smart held Boston in a mix of his unceasing play at both ends of the court. In the end, Nuricich and Lillard turned out to be too big for Celtics in the last six minutes of the fourth quarter.

Twenty percent of the shots in Portland amounted to 35.6%. Despite the ugly firing, Blazers clung to thin one-point lead thanks to their field work. Having advantages both in offensive approaches and in attempts to free throw, the Stots team bought enough time to find its rhythm.
The second block of struggle
The updated second block of Portland turned into its first oblivion. Ahnes Kanther was at the crime scene of Celtics, Rodney Hood, and Seth Curry, released a goose egg for 40 minutes of combined work, and Lyman had noticeable failures at both ends of the court.
The battle against the reserves of Blazers was enhanced by a lively game from the Celtics bench. In the first quarter, Gordon Hayward called the coach Brad Stevens offense, while Jelineen Brown recorded his second double match of the season in 30 minutes.
The re-rotation of Portland was designed to strike several strokes after several strokes. Starry break. Even when Celtics regularly placed Canter in difficult places, Stotts remained a fan of his new big guy over Zack Collins.
Nurlik went to the wind from the Celtics attack at the end of the game. A small team in Boston was sent to the half of the fourth quarter when the Bosnian beast returned to court. Nurikk was treated when Celtics could not drive the big guy out of office. One day Robert Williams was called from the bench to go to the feet with Nuricom. The results were not very attractive for young boys. Nurik completed a brutal flood and helped the blazers to make a turnaround. Williams returned to the bench after 30 seconds of action.
Impotent to the forefront
Lillard overcame a rough night of firing, advancing on a descent into a crime. He successfully opposed the Celtics perimeter, receiving 24 out of 33 points from three points. Four of his 10 heels went offensive, and he finished with 17 points to complete a durable double double.
