Trail Blazers Vs. Celtics Game Thread
Back on November 30th, Damian Lillard and Wesley Matthews tallied just 13 points on 4-14 shooting, 6 rebounds and 3 assists combined as the Trail Blazers lost convincingly to the Celtics. This one was well in-hand for Boston at the half as they had raced out to a 23-point lead, which allowed Coach Stotts to rest a lot of his starters with the game out of hand, but there's no doubt that the backcourt must provide more production if the Trail Blazers are to knock off the Celtics for the first time since December 30th, 2008. Boston has beaten the Trail Blazers nine out of 10 times since acquiring Kevin Garnett from Minnesota in 2007. Look for Lillard to have a big night as he's been a man on a mission over his last 10 games, averaging 19 points and 6.5 assists. If Dame can continue this trend, the Trail Blazers will finally knock of the C's.
