What to know
The Boston Celtics could be tired from yesterday’s game as they begin their run against the Portland Trail Blazers at 10 p.m. ET on December 4 at the Moda Center in Rose Quarter. The Celtics will seek revenge for the 129-119 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played on May 2.
Boston came back against the Utah Jazz on Friday, with a score of 137-130. A silver lining for Boston is the play of small strikers Jayson Tatum, who had 37 points and five assists along with six rebounds.
Meanwhile, the night got off to a rough start for Portland on Thursday, and it ended that way, too. They dealt a serious blow to the San Antonio Spurs, falling 114-83. Rip City were in a difficult position in the first half, with the score being 68-47. Guard CJ McCollum (16 points) and small forward Norman Powell (16 points) are the top scorers for Portland.
Without any buzzer beaters, Boston is expected to win a tight contest on Saturday. Odds players have seen things return to the Celtics, who are on 12-11 to the odds.
These two teams will definitely have to face each other very hard to get back to the winning milestone after losing matches this week. We’ll see which team satisfies their hunger and which leaves with an empty stomach.
